That which was put in the ground
Will someday come back around
From dust to dust it goes on and on
Everything that ends becomes a beginning again eventually. The “dust to dust” reference refers to death and rebirth. When a human is buried in the ground, regardless of whether you believe in reincarnation or an afterlife, the physical body eventually becomes part of the earth again and plants gain nutrients from it. The circle of life continues, and “that which was put in the ground” “comes back around.”
The album cover for Audio, Video, Disco. by Justice, the album that contains “On'n'On” — the song this hook is sampled from.
