  • I cannot spend another night in this home
    I close my eyes and take a breath real slow
    The consequences if I leave 'em alone
    But what's the difference when you beg for love?

    'Cause I learned the blood's in the stream
    Cannot see, oh
    With the name that my father gave me
    And take the face of the one

    This is a wasteland, my only retreat
    With heaven above you, there's hell over me

    I met a girl who never looked so alone
    Like sugar water in your mouth luke warm
    She tied her cherry stem for me with her tongue
    We fell in love and now we're both alone

    'Cause I don't need any more friends
    And another kiss like a fire on pavement
    We'll burn it down to the end

    Oh, oh
    This is a wasteland, my only retreat
    With heaven above you there's hell over me
    The water is rising, the air is so clean.
    And then for a second I feel fine
    This is a wasteland, my only retreat

    I waited all this night to what you say
    I know it's hard, but who you are you to fall apart on me, on me

    This is a waste land my only retreat
    With heaven above you there's hell over me

    'Cause this is a waste land my only retreat
    With heaven above you there's hell over me
    (Said) What about us well, what about me?
    Came from the girl that's asleep in the rain
    This is a waste land, my only retreat Writer/s: MICHAEL FUENTES, VICTOR FUENTES
