Of Dust and Nations
Thrice Lyrics


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
Will ever stand before the endless march of sand

[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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
Will ever stand before the endless march of sand

[Chorus]
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

Everything they create is epic. Their talent is beyond any others. I listen to thrice 99% of my time and still love all the classics as if they were just released.

This is lyrically and musically one of the greatest things ever written.

I served in Iraq and drove this weird single person mine detector vehicle affectionately, and aptly, named the T-rex. I listened to this album exclusively every time I went out while basically disregarding the radio chatter. I was the lead vehicle in all convoys, spaced out about 500 meters, or 1/3 of a mile, and had to skirt the sides of the road to detect IEDs. I was never blown up, fortunately. Every time I listen to this album I think of that time. And also my fiance, who loves Thrice. Man, what a life.
