Ashes to ashes and dusk to dust
Cry no more tears for part we must
Ashes to ashes and dusk to dust
Who shall remain once the saw has cut

Ashes to ashes and dusk to dust
Scatter like seeds in ruddy dust
Ashes to ashes and dusk to dust
Love comes and it cuts

Hearts once a mirror now fracture and fissure
An open heart with madness meets
Float on the ocean of dreams
Burning you in effigy
