"Dust & Rocks" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Well, she's waiting by the window
With a fading tear
That will slip in to tomorrow
And have no fear

She may look back and blame you
But you only blame yourself
And what good would it all do you
If you thought she blamed herself

It's a lonely life as bits of dust and rocks
When you shake it off, it is all you have
In the time it takes to find another space
Get to live again, she'll run and run

Still she's waiting by the window
With a fading tear

Well, she looks upon high flying silver dream
How she wishes how
She could climb aboard, never coming back
Turn on it all

Find another space, get to live again
Find the other hearts of new [Incomprehensible]
[Incomprehensible], bits of dust and rocks
Don't ever shake them off, she'll run and run

Still she's waiting by the window
She has no fear

    My InterpretationI believe the correct lyrics are these:

    Well she's waiting by the window with a fading tear
    That will slip into tomorrow and have no fear.
    She may look back and blame you- but you only blame yourself.
    And what good would it all do you if you thought she blamed herself?

    It's a lonely life as bits of dust and rocks,
    When you shake it off it's all you have.
    In the time it takes to find another space
    Get to live again, she'll run and run.

    Still she's waiting by the window with a faded tear.

    Well she looks upon high flying silver dream how she wishes how
    She could climb aboard, never coming back, turn on it all.

    Find another space
    Get to live again
    Find the other parts
    Of little planets that are
    Coursing through your veins
    Bits of dust and rocks
    Don't get to shake them off
    She'll run and run.

    Still she's waiting by the window- she has no fear.

    My interpretation is that this is about feeling possibly a break up or otherwise life changing event in the life of the narrator and the subject, and that the subject (she) is looking to escape into a new world.
