"Holland" as written by and Ladan Hussein....
Rotterdam, goddamn
This starving go against
And then tar mulling up the opposed modernity
And I heard them scream

We are many, we are many, we are

And in the Hague, I did proclaim
'Cause then I'll find god in the gutter
You'll catch the dead and bury them with old words
When the hours begin to flee I will sing
Recover me

We are many
We are many
We are dust
We are many
We are many
We are dust

Into dust we will all return
Oh I, whole night, I heard you sing
Only dreamers, dead times, and dirty kings
Oh I, whole night, I heard you sing
O death, where is thy sting?

Does it feed on eager limbs?
How will the body know?
I was caught in the eye with a nightingale
Hold the water, let it burn
Some lives may dig deep but my cold crime is clean
If I show you my hands, will you carry the beast?

We are many
We are many
We are dust
Into dust we will all return

    Song MeaningSounds very biblical. "We are dust, and to dust we shall all return."

    There's a line in the Bible similar to it...

    Genesis 3:19

    "By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return."

    I'm not sure if there is a connection, although it definitely feels like there is!
