Desert Song

 

Dark and dirty 

like you have never seen 

a mind so twisted 

with thoughts so unclean. 

My heart is racing 

all tattered and torn 

I stand here naked 

as the day I was born. 

 

Over and over I stand 

I'm holding the world in my hand 

I got to believe 

 

The sky is falling 

on this setting son 

Echoes of silence 

ringing loud and long 

This isolation 

is the king of pain 

A lost horizon 

in an ocean of flames 

 

Only the lonely will stand 

I'm holding the world in my hand 

I got to believe 

 

I've been here before, 

but not as I stand here today 

I wait for the dawn 

ready to walk 

into the light
