Meet Me In the Desert

from by Badwater Sound



come over after work drink this coffee drink this wine
unravel sing me up and down pound the sweat out of our bloodlines
nine to five eight to six nights and weekends christmases
I'll pull your mind down off your struggle and bathe you in the night
hopscotch with me on down the alley over soggy pizza boxes dodging
dead rats raccoons possums kids don't ever let me home again
I'll pull your call out of the puddle pull my head out of the rubble
dust me off until I'm someone you can bear to share the ride
forty days of daylight turned to forty years of night
push on out this heartland save your life
meet me in the desert

all the life that you were taught that you never could imbibe
paid for on a credit card you used to cut up lines between your
enemies and family your hustle and some peace at night and
all the sons of gunfire raging through the night
step out of the wasteland away from all the yes men
pinching pennies faking fire wrapped in concertina wire
step on out this heartland save your life
and baby if I fall behind
meet me in the desert

a bloodied doorway ain't gonna save me from this noose around my neck
I ain't guilty I ain't sick
no burning bush or engine gonna talk me down the right side of this cliff
I ain't coming down for shit
until I've seen our wagons circling up again
