"Rust" as written by and Zachary P Wylde....
Living, fighting, obsessing
Just as long as I can share it all with you
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, come rain, come shine
Hell and back, the beginning in between till' the end of time

All that shines turns to rust
All that stands in time turns to dust

As above, so below
But you ain't no fool and honey, I'm damn sure that you know
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, come rain, come shine
Hell and back, the beginning in between till' the end of time

All that shines turns to rust
All that stands in time turns to dust

All that shines turns to rust
All that stands in time turns to dust

All that shines turns to rust
All that stands in time turns to dust

    General CommentI think he's saying that after being married so long, it wears on you and the little things that used to make you happy don't appear to be so great anymore, and the little things that never bothered you now start to wear you down. But that's married life, it's not supposed to be perfect, so I'll put up with all of it just to stay together, because this is how it is in the real world.

    General CommentThis song touched me the first time I heard it.
    So deep.
    I love it when Big Bad Rocker Men show their soft side.
    He is talking about how his love will never end & how
    superficial beauty all ends the same. Love is blind and
    never goes away even after the packaging is less than beautiful.
    The guitar work conveys the meloncholy. Beautiful.

    General CommentI think he is saying that he doesn't care what he has to do to be with this person - he will live, fight, obsess, just as long as he can share it with her.
    He is going to 'hell and back' over her, and then he is saying all good things come to an end - all that shines turns to rust...
