You can use another image, such as a gradient or even a greyscale version or the rocks falling as a track matte on the text.

Check the help files in AE under using "track mattes" if you don't know how to apply them.

I believe the best and easiest solution is going to be a combination of using a track matte on and some manual masking. Its dificult to say without looking at the footage.

Good luck.
