Dust


When dust finally settled
On the hurt ya left for dead
Everything felt kinda numb
Or at least least that's what ya said
There was still a glimpse of misery
Held tight against your chest
When dust finally settled
And ya gasped for your last breath

When dust finally settled
Pants tucked down in your boots
With a half pint of whiskey
Heavy on the proof
Not much time for final rights
Defiant until the end
When dust finally settled
And the Angels led you in
