LYRICS:

Desert sky
Dreams beneath a desert sky
The rivers run
But soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight
Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons
And in bows
Like a siren she calls (to me)
Sleep comes like a drug…In God’s Country
Sad eyes crooked crosses…In God’s Country
Set me alight
We’ll punch a hole right through the night
Every day the dreamers die
To see what’s on the other side
She is Liberty
And she comes to rescue me
Hope faith, her vanity
Sleep comes like a drug…In God’s Country
Sad eyes crooked crosses…In God’s Country

Nake flame
She stands with a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love
