Ashes to ashes, and dust to dust
Meaning: We come from dust; we return to dust.
Biblical text, Genesis 3:19 : “In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread, till thou return unto the ground; for out of it wast thou taken: for dust thou art, and unto dust shalt thou return.”
Also David Bowie: “Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
We know Major Tom’s a junkie”
