In The Dust
by Brandon Heath



For as long as I remember, and as far as I can see
There are pilgrims in a valley, lost and thirsty just like me
We seek shelter in each other, when the rocks begin to slide
We can’t run from what is coming, down the mountain side

And it all comes down, it all comes down

From the ground we were created, to the ground we will return
Every moment that we've borrowed, every token that we've earned.
It was his in the beginning and its his to take away
But we can’t be sure 'bout nothing but we’ll surely know one day

And it all comes down, it all comes down

And this vapor of a life will vanish over wind
Every road I've traveled on will come to an end
He’ll come riding in and steal me up in a rush
Take my place in the light, leave my bones in the dust

(Vocals)

So I won't root myself too deeply in this valley where we dwell
I won't tie myself to nothing, that tells my soul it isn't well
I will wait and I will wonder, but only time will tell

And it all come down, it all comes down

And this vapor of a life will vanish over wind
Every road I've traveled on will come to an end
He’ll come riding in and steal me up in a rush

Take my place in the light…

And I will leave this mess broken down on the shore
Any shadows down below wont haunt me anymore
Any shackles on my hands will turn to rust

Take my place in the light (take my place in the light)
Leave bones in the dust (leave my bones in the dust)
