Basically it means - I'm leaving... mess with someone else for a while.

When something sits to long in one place it gets dusty.  It becomes time to
shake the dust out.

Of course, your interpretation may vary, but I believe that is the most
widely accepted translation.

(By the way, welcome to the list.)
