From the lyrics to Annie Lennox ‘Primitive’ (on the album Diva)
For time will catch us in both hands
To blow away like grains of sand
Ashes to ashes rust to dust
This is what becomes of us
One distinctly hears on the audio the “rust to dust” — a line providing a variation of “earth to earth, ashes to ashes, dust to dust” phrase from the funeral service in the Book of Common Prayer — which variation leads me to propose another: “ashes to ashes rush to dust”.
And so for day 1876
