Better Ash Than Dust Lyrics
The fire burns.
Our faces warm from its heat.
Nights like these, they make me think about the person I once was and the person I’ll become.
My mind turns and steps its weight upon my throat.
Desperate for breath while watching me choke.
If this is the end you can bet your ass I won’t go out like them.
They keep pulling at me and they won’t let go until I face the fact.
Until I reap what I sow.
Their voices, they keep calling you.
They keep calling at you until they make you believe that there’s nowhere to go. They’ll do everything they can to drag you under but you know the truth so don’t let these mother fuckers come at you.
Most times the things to which we cling aren’t the same things that we need.
We sit and watch our dance of death as we slowly drown in this selfishness.
This is the end.
You’re one of us.
I can’t go out like them.
Better ash than dust.
They keep following you but you can’t back down.
They gotta believe that there’s no way out.
Our voices, the last thing they’ll hear as they smash down upon us.
What will continue is what we allow.
Most times the things to which we cling aren’t the same things that we need and sometimes the things we love are the things we need to leave.
