Of Dust And Nations Lyrics - Thrice

Review The Song (6)



the towers that shoulder your pride
the words you've written in stone
sand will cover them, sand will cover you
the streets that suffer your name
your very flesh and your bones
sand will cover them, sand will cover you

so put your faith in more than steel
don't store your treasures up, with moth and rust
where thieves break in and steal
pull the fangs from out your heel
we live in but a shadow of the real

step out from time, see the dust of nations
step out from time, hear the stars ovation

Saturn will not sleep, until the sand has made us clean
still we stack our stones and bury what we can
but it all will be undone, and nothing built under the sun
sponsored links
will ever stand before the endless march of sand

so put your faith in more than steel
don't store your treasures up, with moth and rust
where thieves break in and steal
pull the fangs from out your heel
we live in but a shadow of the real

so put your faith in more than steel
don't store your treasures up, with moth and rust
where thieves break in and steal
pull the fangs from out your heel
we live in but a shadow of the real

You don't have to be Christian | Reviewer: Nix | 1/3/12

You don't have to be Christian to see some truth in this. I think, as one reviewer said, it strikes a chord with just about anyone.

My favorite part is:
step out from time, see the dust of nations
step out from time, hear the stars ovation

I think this song is really about time, and how it will eventually get the better of all of us. It's also about the idea that there is something much bigger than us which we cannot see because we are caught in out own understanding of the world.
I love the reference to Saturn, which is by the way, in case some did not notice, a pagan reference. Saturn is Titan Chronos who is Time personnified. Good thing Saturn is immortal, because he'll have to wait an awfully long time before we are "clean".



Hope Eternal | Reviewer: AscendantX | 11/1/11

I can't say anything that the previous reviewers haven't said already. I will say that this song strikes a deep chord in just about any listeners soul, and I appreciate that.
Anonymous from 10/22/2011, no matter what you believe in, that's a disgusting word, and I hope it doesn't reflect the person using it. Believe what you will, we'll all know the truth in the end.



great song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/22/11

this song is beautiful, and maria youre an cunt whos opinion, though valid, is just an opinion. my faith is in people, and youre telling me im wrong, therefore youre a cunt, open your eyes and accept that theres more than black and white



here i go | Reviewer: Maria(the CHRISTIAN EMO GOTH) | 5/10/11

I'm gonna get alot of hate for this, but i just have to say, you can put your faith in things other then God, but it will be an empty faith. Heaven is open to those who believe in God and know that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. He loves us all and mourns that not all of us know Him. Heck, it brings me to tears that most of the people i love the most in the world are lost and they will have to spend eternity in an awful place if they arent found. This song is taken directly from the Bible, too."Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal." Matthew 6:19. It means that we shouldnt be that worried about what we have here on earth, because it will all go away eventually. only God is eternal. Please, dont break the hearts of those who love you. Please turn to God so you can spend eternity with those people in heaven. God wants you there, and so do i, although i may not make it if i dont shape up. I hope to see you there! if this helped, let me know if we get up there!

I'm happy to help. Please, not too much hate mail. Just questions, but i cant promise answers. (im only a teenager who loves music and God, not some adult pastor or something)



Beautiful | Reviewer: Michael | 12/11/10

I agree with the first reviewer. This song conveys the message in an absolutely beautiful way. And anyone can relate to it, no matter what their beliefs. We have to put our faith in something greater than material or ourselves. And I don't think that something necessarily has to be any God.



Presentation | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/21/07

It's amazing how presentation can apply a message of the upmost truth and all people can receive it.
