Oh, I have been wondering where I have been pondering
Where I've been lately is no concern of yours
Who's been touching my skin
Who have I been letting
Shy and tired-eyed am I today

Umm

I'm wounded by dust
All I have been wondering where I have been pondering
Where I've been lately is no concern of yours
Who's been touching my skin
Who have I been letting
Shy and tired-eyed am I today

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Sometimes I sit, sometimes I stare
Sometimes they look and sometimes I don't care
Rarely I weep, sometimes I must
I'm wounded by dust

When the bell toll, when the bell gon' chime
You better call for your woman up high
And when the bell tolls for your last day
You'll be getting down on your knees to pray
I'm a good woman and I never did say whatever it was that you did that day
I'm not a woman that is going to place claim, but you said that it was coming on judgement day

Now Sophia
I'm wounded by dust

When the bell toll, when the bell gon' chime
You better call for your woman up high
And when the bell tolls for your last day
You'll be getting down on your knees to pray
I'm a good woman and I never did say whatever it was that you did that day
I'm not a woman that is going to place claim, but you said that it was coming on judgement day

Now Sophia (Sophia)
I'm wounded by dust
Now Sophia

    Song MeaningSophia is the goddess of wisdom.

    This song is like the light to "The Beast's" shadow; here she is asking for wisdom, and guidance, from the Goddess Sophia. She is sad, and forgiving, keeping the secrets of the man she has denied and judged unworthy - although she does mention that his judgment will come, just not by her hand.

    In the first verses she emphasizes that it's over, and her business is none of his. I can empathize deeply with this part of the song; I think it's something that occurs to almost everyone after an important relationship ends. The "I'm wounded by dust" line is, I believe, about how the past can hurt us. Even though it's not substantial, and it's long over (dust) it still hurts.
