Dust in The Wind is the 7th song on the album "point of Know return" released album performed and recorded by the Kansas progressive rock band in 1977.
Reached  6 lists the Billboard Hot 100 popular place in the week of 22 April 1978 being this the only single Kansas who has reached the top ten on the Billboard Hot 100. It was written by Kerry Livgren, and was one of the first acoustic band; its gentle melody and melancholic letter ostensibly differs from other successes of the band as "Carry On Wayward Son" and "The Wall". The interlude song contains a distinctive and memorable melody only interpreted by Robby Steinhardt violin.
Is made with a deep spiritual significance and is currently played in many funerals.

I close my eyes


only for a moment and the moments gone


all my dreams


pass before my eyes a curiosity


Dust in the wind


all they are is dust in the wind


same old song


just a drop of water in an endless sea


All we do


crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see


dust in the wind


all we are is dust in the wind


Now dont hang on


nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky



Now dont hang on

nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky

It slips away. And all your money
won't another minute buy.

Dust in the wind

all we are is dust in the wind

all we are is dust in the wind


dust in the wind


everything is dust in the wind




everything is dust in the wind



I close my eyes


only for a moment and the moments gone

all my dreams

pass before my eyes a curiosity

 

Dust in the wind

all they are is dust in the wind

same old song

just a drop of water in an endless sea

 

All we do

crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see

dust in the wind

all we are is dust in the wind







The subject makes us remember that we are nothing compared to the entire universe. It may sound depressing, especially with a sad melody like this, but its purpose is to try and make us aware that we need to live and better appreciate the present because it's all we have. This is just a modern version of the medieval "memento mori" topic.
