  • Oh desert speak to my heart
    Oh woman of the earth
    Maker of children who weep for love
    Maker of this birth
    'Til your deepest secrets are known to me
    I will not be moved
    I will not be moved

    "Don't try to find the answer
    When there ain't no question here
    Brother let your heart be wounded
    And give no mercy to your fear"

    Adam and eve live down the street from
    Me
    Babylon is every town
    It's as crazy as it's ever been
    Love's a stranger all around

    In a moment we lost our minds here
    And lay our spirit down
    Today we lived a thousand years
    All we have is now

    Run to the water
    And find me there
    Burnt to the core but not broken
    We'll cut through the madness
    Of these streets below the moon
    These streets below the moon

    And I will never leave you
    'Til we can say, "this world was just a
    Dream
    We were sleepin' now we are awake"
    'Til we can say

    In a moment we lost our minds here
    And dreamt the world was round
    A million mile fall from grace
    Thank god we missed the ground

    Run to the water
    And find me there
    Burnt to the core but not broken
    We'll cut through the madness
    Of these streets below the moon
    With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts

    Yeah, I can see it now lord
    Out beyond all the breakin' of waves
    And the tribulation
    It's a place and the home of ascended
    Souls
    Who swam out there in love!

    Run to the water
    And find me there
    Burnt to the core but not broken
    We'll cut through the madness
    Of these streets below the moon
    With a nuclear fire of love in our hearts
    Rest easy baby, rest easy
    And recognize it all as light and rainbows
    Smashed to smithereens and be happy
    Run to the water (and find me there)
