대자연 속에서 인간이란, 그냥 바람에 휘날리는 먼지같이 적은 존재.

아메리카 대륙 원주민의 노래, 서정시에서 따온 것임.


바람에 날리는 먼지일 뿐. (칸사스 1977. Dust in the wind, by Kansas)


눈을 감고,한 순간만. 그 순간도 가고.

모든 내 꿈은 지나가버려.

호기심으로 가득찬 내 눈 앞에서.


바람에 날리는 먼지.

그 모든 것들은 바람에 날리는 먼지.


늘 똑같은 노래

끝없는 바다에 그저 한 물방울일 뿐.


우리가 한 일은,

산산이 부셔져 땅에 떨어지네,

그걸 부인한다고 해도.

바람에 날리는 먼지.

우리는 바람에 날리는 먼지.



이제 기다리지 마라.

영원한 것은 없어. 땅과 하늘만이 영원해.

허나 그것도 금새 떠나가버려.

네 돈으로도 1분을 더 살 순 없어.


바람에 날리는 먼지.

우리 모두는 그냥 바람에 날리는 먼지.

(모든 게 다 바람에 날리는 먼지) 


1977. Dust in the Wind . - Kansas 




I close my eyes

Only for a moment and the moment's gone

All my dreams

Pass before my eyes with curiosity

Dust in the wind

All they are is dust in the wind



Same old song

Just a drop of water in an endless sea


All we do

Crumbles to the ground, though we refuse to see


Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind

Oh, ho, ho



Now don't hang on

Nothin' last forever but the earth and sky

It slips away

And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind

All we are is dust in the wind


(All we are is dust in the wind)

Dust in the wind

(Everything is dust in the wind)

Everything is dust in the wind

(In the wind)



Kansas’s acoustic hit “Dust In The Wind” is a reflective song about the inevitability of mortality and the insignificant role every person plays in the bigger picture.


 It was written by guitarist Kenny Livgren, who was inspired by a Native American poem containing the line “For all we are is dust in the wind”. 


The music came from a picking exercise he was doing that his wife suggested he make a song out of. 


“Dust In The Wind” was a top 10 hit in the US and Canada in the spring of 1977. Ironically, the band’s most well known song does not reflect their typical hard rock sound (as in “Carry On Wayward Son”) and was the last addition to the album.
