mordre la poussière.
Apparently dates back to the time fights or tornaments took place in sandy arenas. It means basically to be thrown to the ground, and by extension, to fail, to loose. No indication of death in current language.

You're in the blink
You gonna bite the dust
Can't fight with us

On a certain place
And when fresh stuf runs through the veins there
You bite the dust
And this time she hasn't come

and then we bite the dust.
The shadows are becoming longer.

Make her bite the dust
Of all those who are no longer hungry...

our story.

leaving space for the questions

And in bad times I would not be allowed to leave this life behind
And you would sell me, I mean nothing to you
Tell me please how often did I have to bite the dust
Tell me how often was I used by you

Vetusta Morla - Every Man for Himself

I'm able to piss off, I can be charming,
I'm able to call you without a single word.
I'm able to win, I may bite the dust,
I do know that, without all of you, this hurts more.

But at least I'd would be well off.
And we continue to cut the lawn to measure
and then we will bite the dust.

Which takes over control
Come on, friends, hold me back if you mind it
I take off now, bite the dust, so that you all see I am fed up with this lonely life, I am missing something here
I cry like a small child

You ain't alone in this ugly town
You stick a needle in your arm
You bite the dust, you buy the farm

Bite the dust, fall from high
or waiting patiently for the war to start

in two the risk is minimum
we're together
those who bite the dust
leave the teeth to bite

One thing you rappers cannot deny,
I am the most successful rapper of all times,
you'll bite the dust, one word from me is enough,
I am skyline and curb at once,

I'm walkin tall
I don't let their hatred test me
They bite the dust
Head above water, they still can't breathe

Hemp Gru - Is it true

And let everyone do it for oneself
It will be better like this, I hit* those who destroy what is ours
They bite the dust sometimes, sometimes they'll lose their brains* again
They tell, it's hard sometimes, one lives on

DumDum Boys - A beautiful day

One in a million gets struck by lightning
But eventually, we all bite the dust.

Fler - Everything’s Passing

Your hands, completely dusty
we’re reaching for the stars
and in the end, we bite the dust ²
The days and the weeks,

Who swallowed some glass

One by one, we bite the dust
We kick the bucket and begin to rust

Without you, I won't die
I assure you, I won't die
Although I bite the dust
You will be a sleeping flower

And hang out with people that lead you towards the sun
And not with those
Who want to see bite the dust!
Believe me!"
