hot sand
wheel keeps clicking
wheel keeps clicking
cracked hands
my mind keeps ticking
my mind keeps ticking

we are in some dry land
but your desert’s not a desert at all

you’re with some divided man
just be careful you don’t fall apart

call me if you want to break out
call me if you can’t win
we can find some desert hideout
your desert’s not a desert at all

ain’t it strange the lack of color?
but it’s all together colorful
ain’t it strange to lack color?

you gotta believe me, you gotta come see me
i know you from way back when
you gotta believe me, you gotta come see me
i know you, i knew you way back then

so call me if you want to break out
call me if you can’t win
we can find some desert hideout
and let the desolation sink in

you gotta believe me, you gotta come see me
i know you from way back when
you gotta believe me, you gotta come see me
i know you, i knew you way back then
you desert’s not a desert at all

    General CommentGive us a beat
    for our halfway hearts and tenement teeth!
    a beat
    to fill up the room
    they’ll be splitting soon and dancing without feet
    a song
    when the days are long and your friends have gone
    lock the door, it won’t hurt no more
    you won’t feel the floor
    it’s only love
    it’s only love
    we did this before it’s only love

    and when the record’s done
    let it scrape and scratch
    let’s drag up the past and dance
    so give us a beat
    for our halfway hearts and tenement teeth!

    it’s only love
    it’s only love
    we did this before it’s only love

    recognized it right from the start
    it was the sound of a breaking heart
    are we hammering in our nails?
    are we taking down the sails?

    according to the pages in books
    on modern psychology
    a broken heart might not restart
    and very well might follow me
    down into the water, down into the water
    and downward we descend
    well i kissed your lips of ruby red
    and this is what was said

    "land"
    "land"
    "land"
    "land"
