To Sand We Return – Song of the Week

I really enjoy music. I listen to either my iPod or RadioU pretty much all day long at my desk, and very often I come across songs that have very meaningful lyrics. My goal is to post a song every Monday that I particularly enjoy. At times it will be one that I have just recently heard for the first time and sometimes it may be a song that I have been listening to for quite some time. This will be the second entry in (hopefully) a long list.

If you missed it, the first song I posted last week, “For the Life of Me”, by This Beautiful Republic.

This week’s song is a fairly new one, by Project 86 called, “To Sand We Return.” Lyrics below video.

To Sand We Return

Cowering Man, A legion of no one’s call
Bet it all
Covenant kill, he points to the heavens
Bare with blank stares

Beckoning search in self for his answer
Reckoning, purge, the great fall, the cancer
Settlement comes in wages now he is
Shattered, broke, and all alone

We’ve lost all our control
Our faces fall to the ground
We’re powerless to your voice
Surrender to the sound

What’ll it take to prove our decisions wrong?
Will we fail?
Alone in ourselves there nothing but chaos
Fear end it here

‘Til we concede to drink from the endless
The desert we find ourselves in is hopeless
‘Til we submit and let go the control
We will always be alone

We’ve lost all our control
Our faces fall to the ground
We’re powerless to your voice
Surrender to the sound

We’ve lost all our control
Our faces fall to the ground
And no longer seeming
So shattered, broke, and all alone

Who do I belong to?
Not earth, not world
Not evil, not mortals
Not wretches, not horrors

Who do I belong to?
Unchanging, unbreaking
Unfailing, creator
Immortal, eternal

We’ve lost all our control
Our faces fall to the ground
We’re powerless to your voice
Surrender to the sound

We’ve lost all our control
Our faces fall to the ground
We’re powerless to your voice
Surrender to the sound

Who do I belong to?
Not earth, not world
Not evil, not mortals
Not wretches, not horrors
