about

Risking your life for a better one. This is the last single release of our upcoming album, The Land Of California.

lyrics

Water jug and kicking dust
Backpack holding everything I own
Under sun and mystery
Understanding nothing but my home

Running for the one I love
Running out of all the things I need
Think of all the times we had
Thinking that I got some mouths to feed

It’s a desert world
It’s a desert world

Got to get to family
Got to get away from enemies
Never been away so long
So long as I can keep my sanity

Holding on to memory
Keeping track of trails in the night
Separation desperately
Hear me howling at the cold moonlight

It’s a desert world
It’s a desert world
Yeah yeah
Oh

Hanging on and digging in
Holding out for opportunity
Cactus, snake, tarantula
Cheering section underneath my feet

No more drops of sweat to give
White man’s warning baked into my brain
Past and present pioneers
Lead me on with footprints and remains

It’s a desert world
It’s a desert world
Yeah Yeah
Oh

It’s a desert world
Yeah Yeah
Oh
It’s a desert world
It’s a desert world
It’s a desert world
