Grain of Sand

I have been around for a long time
Dune to Dune, desert to desert
Keeping my identity and remaining sane
I have been around for a long time

I have seen wars beyond unwritten history
I have stuck to the bloodied foreheads
Of fallen heroes and slain innocence
I have been around for a long time

I have been pushed, I have been crushed
Drowned in the sea a million times
Yet washed to shore every single time
I have been around for a long time

I have been walked over and over
By saints and sinners with no remorse
Cities were built and perished on me
I have been around for a long time

The secret of my enigmatic existence
Is that no one knows that I exist
Even when they see millions like me
They never know that I exist
I have been around for a long time
And I will be around even after you pass
