Staring down the dust
Shooting the arrow of death
Mourning a paradise lost
Sing with me under your breath

Take me through the garden
Take me through the dark
Baby beg your pardon
Keep me from coming apart

Swinging off the chain
Facing the firing line
Who will remember your name
Drowning the ashes in wine

Staring down the dust

Walking all alone
Take it as far as you must
Take mine and clear the bone
oh

I can't quiet my mind
I wouldn't tell no lie

Staring down the dust
Kissing the angel of death
Praying your will isn't crushed
Singing it under your breath

Staring down the dust
Mourning a paradise lost
Shooting the arrow of death
Sing with me under your breath

I can't quiet my mind
I wouldn't tell no lie

Staring down the dust.
