Lyrics:

FADE TO DUST Meredith Blis
Betty Page was all the rage, 1945
Sweet and Sassy innocence made all the boys alive
A Pin Up Girl on a Tilt-a-Whirl
Pictures for the world to see
You can pin her up and tie her down
Joke's on you, she's free

The 'Prince Said to the Showgirl', 'Let's Make Love'
'Something's Got to Give'
Tell Me Dear, "All About Eve' &
Why these 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes'
There's Duality in Sexuality
'Some Like it too Hot' for reality
This 'Monkey Business', 'Don't Bother to Knock',
'A Seven Year Itch' from 'Niagara' to the 'Bus Stop'

Too much Fear, Not enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust
Too Much Fear, Not Enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust
Me, You ..

Pick that Southern Steel Magnolia, Put her in Your Palm
Feel the Flowery Strength Within, Like an Atomic Bomb
Like a Butterfly, She's gonna Fly Away
Remember everything you wanted to say
She's as good as Gold, you're as good as it gets
So much we haven't figured out yet

Too much Fear, Not enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust
Too Much Fear, Not Enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust
Me, You and The Rest of Us









You wanna Tell me why it's the 21st century
You wanna Tell me what I should believe
You wanna Tell me bombs, you wanna tell me guns
But neither weapon is protecting our sons
I say Beauty and I say Grace, I want Clean Air and Equality of Race
Tell me who's the Terrorist and what for
When we're killing God's Children in the name of War

Too much Fear, Not enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust
Too Much Fear, Not Enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust

It's all about Love
And it's not about Greed
We're the only Mass Destructive Weapons
That I see
It's all about love
Not about hate
A little bout sex
Cause it's how we relate


Too much Fear and Not enough Love
Eventually we're Gonna Fade to Dust

Me, You
Without Love
We're Gonna Fade to Dust
