Still falling, breathless and on again
Inside today, beside me today
Around, broken in two
Till your eyes shed into dust
Like two strangers turning into dust
Till my hand shook with the weight of fear
I could possibly be fading
Or have something more to gain
I could feel myself growing colder
I could feel myself under your fate
Under your fate
It was you, breathless and torn
I could feel my eyes turning into dust
And two strangers turning into dust
Turning into dust

Punctuated by a slow melodic guitar, this song tells the story of a woman who feels she is decaying and fading away into thin air, as if into dust. She explains to somebody how she feels that she and every other interaction she has with other people disappears into nothing.
The song has been used or referenced in multiple occassions, such as:
Virgin Media’s 2009 ad campaign:
I’m turning into dust again
My melancholy baby
The star of Mazzy must
Push her voice inside of me
