"Dust Storm" as written by and Nicholas Edward/wilcox Thomas....
I've been waiting for the wind to change,
I've been craving the summer rain,
I wonder when she's gonna flood the plains.

Will I die before I get old?
Will I be known or unknown?
Can you tell me why all the birds have flown?

I don't wanna leave a message if there's nobody home.
I thought I saw you through the window, but I don't know.

Stingin' my eyes: It's just a dust storm.
Caught outside: It's just a dust storm.
Weatherman lied: It's just a dust storm.

I've been waiting for the moon to rise.
She's so luminous and wise.
When she flirts with me, I feel shy.

I don't wanna leave a message if there's nobody home.
I thought I saw you through the window, but I don't know.

Stingin' my eyes: It's just a dust storm.
Caught outside: It's just a dust storm.
Weatherman lied: It's just a dust storm.

Lonely, desolate,
Uninhabited,
In the reaches of no one, nowhere.
Conjured your voice again,
Shifting sediments.

But I don't know...

Stingin' my eyes: It's just a dust storm.
Caught outside: It's just a dust storm.
Weatherman lied: It's just a dust storm.

Miles and miles: It's just a dust storm.
Filling the sky: It's just a dust storm.
Let it pass by: It's just a dust storm.
Ohh....

    General CommentI looove this song! One of my favorites on Realities! Actually, the only song I don't like on Realities is Let Go... I really don't know why they're getting as much crap for their new style as they are... They've always had new styles for every release. I think this is just an expansion, not anything better or worse.


    As for this meaning... I think it's about feeling lost. The dust storm could be because you honestly wouldn't be able to see anything. I like imagery it creates because dust storms aren't the typical way to show being lost.

    General CommentI was in a ridiculously optimistic mood writing the last comment... I deff agree with people saying the lyrics aren't as thought out as they used to be... I just have a hard time being negative on a band I love so much.

    General CommentNick hasn't lost his talent and his lyrics haven't "deteriorated" nor disappeared.
    He's just as talented, bands ALWAYS do this. They always need to be trying different sounds, although no one likes to see their bands get blown up, changing their sound can sometimes make them more successful. They deserve it.

    this song is beautiful, not as poetic but that's because it's a little more straightforward with the metaphors. It's something like routinexriot said, feeling lost, you just don't know where to go but you know that in time all will pass.. because dust storms and everything else passes.
    I love this music dearly and I guess I'm just open to their changes.
