As the sand
spreads wide open
and the glow of the sun
pearls the skin
All hope is craving fluids
and the yearning to where we've been

Golden grounds
so absorbing
When the heat of the sun
boils the skin
We have to stand the test of nature
to return to where we've been

Hold on my saviour
Keep my heart in holy dimensions
Drag me on your back
for one more day
One more day

One more day

You give
You learn
You live
You learn
I guess what ever you may find
It's all right to eat a piece of your mind

    General CommentAt first this...ALMOST sounds like being trapped in the middle of a desert (and not just because of the sand and sun references, but the "One more day," "Hold on my saviour" bits seem a bit desparate and goal-oriented). I'm not sure what the last section is about, however...I don't think a piece of my mind would taste that good, anyway!

    General CommentOne comment? This song is amazing. I think the last few lines are referring to the ego..

    General Comment"At first this...ALMOST sounds like being trapped in the middle of a desert" The instrumentation hints at this as well. Great song from a great album.

    General CommentThis song makes the desert a metaphor for life, because we have to stand all its tests to survive so then we return to nothing (or the places religious thoughts say that souls belong). The saviour may be jesus, buda or any other prophet or messiah that tells people to be generous and keep good natured. Most people take religion as a comfort, a thing that gives them hope about life and that gives them strength to keep living. The sacred right all humans should have is this one: the right to believe whatever gives them piece.
