Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust...
(x5)


[Hook]

Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
Without you, there is no us
And without us, there was no you
It's all love baby
Through and through
(x2)

[Verse 1]

Meet Molly Mae, they read me like her resume mate
We're not accustom to fresh faces nowadays
It seems like her friends strayed since the day she passed away
Tides rose and for her time froze
Look engraved in my chest, read for her lies to rest
Such a beautiful beauty or what a shame in a breath
Life was cut short like she cut class in the 9th grade
Ironic, isn't it? Or so it seems to outsiders
But inside her, she just couldn't take the outside
Had a baby brewing, belly on a slow rise
Couldn't break the news to pops and watch moms cry
So she tied a knot and let the chair fly

[Hook]

[Verse 2]

My face blank, I represent the unknowns
P.O.W.'s and soldiers who ain't coming home
And if they do, it's to lay to rest the physical
Millions of us here, the words we share are few
A calm cool collective of a nation's protection
The collection's regrets, we don't stress one
We were the iron clad warriors in hard times
And so you'd live free, we'd give our lives
Ultimate sacrifice for superficial accolades
Not asking for a medal, just a hand above your eye
Understand our choice, understand our pride
Let us never be forgotten as we roam the sky

[Hook]

[Verse 3]

Mine nothing crazy, ehh... Death of gold age
Long life, big fam, left a loving wife
They say to live and love once worth a lifetime
But he love twice. It put him out his right mind
His wife cried a small river on his casket
Had his children backwards, we'll call them case baskets
This case tragic, enter stage mistress
At the wake, she'd unveil what their sins did
What makes it worse... She was the sister of the widow
Explicit innuendos exchanged with incidentals
And that's why when you look me in my face
It says the good die young... And this ones aged...

[Outro]

We may have crossed our path before...
We're the tombstones that carry on the tales of the deceased...
Give us your kind words...
'Fore it's only a matter of time before we speak for you...
Ashes to ashes...
Dust to dust...
May the Lord watch over us...
