Dusted
Sepultura Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You make me mute hiding the truth
Revealing a farse created by your mind

What do you expect Exposing your lies
Printed in your eyes there's no alibi

To cooperate and not be allowed
They're killing my name, sewing my mouth

Prospect in life lost in the line
To cooperate and just be alive

You gonna fall hiding the truth
You gonna crawl finding the truth
To blame myself it's my disgrace
To blame the world by my mistakes

Dusted
Dusted
Dusted

Turn around and turning around
And turning around and inside out
Turn around and turning around
And turning around and inside out

Do not disturb leave me alone
The fear within inside and beyond
The fear within inside and beyond

You make me mute hiding the truth
Revealing a farse created by your mind

What do you expect exposing your lies
Printed in your eyes there's no alibi

You gonna fall hiding the truth
You gonna crawl finding the truth
To blame myself it's my disgrace
To blame the world by my mistakes

Dusted

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Sepultura's song "Dusted" express feelings of frustration at being silenced and controlled by someone or something else. The first verse describes a situation in which the singer is being forced to hide the truth and participate in a false reality created by someone else's mind. The second verse expresses anger and betrayal at being put in this position, with no opportunity to defend oneself or explain one's own truth. The chorus contains a warning that the singer's oppressor will eventually fall or crawl, and that the singer will be left to take the blame for their own mistakes.


The bridge of the song contains a repetition of the word "dusted," which could be interpreted as a suggestion that the singer is getting rid of something that has been weighing them down or holding them back. The final verses continue to express feelings of frustration and fear about being controlled and oppressed by external forces. The final lines of the song contain a plea to be left alone and a recognition that the fear that the singer feels is not just from within, but also comes from beyond themselves.


Overall, "Dusted" is a powerful expression of the emotions and experiences of being silenced and oppressed. It touches on themes of control, manipulation, and betrayal, and encourages the listener to fight back against those who would seek to silence or dominate them.
