"March of the Camels" as written by and Matthew Prescott Clark Adam Kent Russell....
There is people in a picture
Hanging on the hall wall
We watch them 'cross the desert
From an armchair in the hall

We saw the world from the edge of our seat
Dance with the harem and drank with sheet
The man on the back of the camels were following me

And we make ourselves a home
At the foot of the steps
Blankets and old wooden chairs
And we stayed there
We laid there, room go smaller
We beg for water but went for air

So we ran away from our old brittle home
We thought it was sand
And the lamp was the sun
So let's get outside
?Cause we've been inside for too long

And we take a drive
And the buildings all turn into trees
And after a while
We find ourselves down by the sea

The beach was a dessert
Outside in an old magazine
The sheiks and the harem
Were under the waves
The camels they all wash away

And no one is happier
And nothing is free
So I think to myself
We should go and get us a drink

    General CommentThis song has got to be about friends trippin. They start off in a house and see the picture on the wall with sand, camels, and the harem. Then they feel they got to get outside so they get in their car and drive and everything is turning into other things....tree, buildings. then they go to the beach .

    General Commentno I think it's just about getting away from life. The building to trees things is like when you drive from the city to the country. all the buildings become trees. then they went to the beach

    General CommentThere is people in a picture
    Hanging on the hall wall
    We watch them cross the desert from an armchair in the hall
    We saw the world from the edge of our seat
    We danced with the harem and drank with shieks
    The man on the back of the camels were following me

    And we make ourselves a home at the foot of the steps
    Blankets and old wooden chairs and we stayed there
    We laid there, the room got smaller
    We begged for water but went for air
    So we ran away from our old winter home
    The carpet was sand and our lamp was the sun
    So let's get outside cause we've been inside for too long

    And we take a drive and the buildings all turn to trees
    And after a while we find ourselves down by the sea
    The beach was a desert outside in an old magazine
    The sheiks and the harem were under the waves
    The camels had all washed away
    And no one is happier
    And nothing is free
    So I think to myself we should go and get us a drink
