Ashes & Dust

from HEMISPHERES || NORTH by Merry Ellen Kirk

lyrics

After the apocalypse, if we survive
What would be left over, could we salvage it
And if we were swept under the water
Would you come find me
So that we can find our peace together

What will become of what we’ve done
After it’s all over
What will shine through ashes and dust
After all is settled

Can you see the billowing of smoke and the brimstone
They’re a living testament to a downfall
Maybe we can lay right here together
Till the stars go dark
Nothing lasts forever, everything is transferred
Will we remember

What will become of what we’ve done
After it’s all over
What will shine through ashes and dust
After all is settled

Go through the flames
And you will see what you’re made of
It’s beauty remains
And pierces through like a diamond
Like a diamond

What will become of what we’ve done
After it’s all over
What will shine through in the end it’s
Truth will find the surface
