"Desert" as written by and Dorival Tostes/pinheiro Caymmi....
Dark is full of rays
and this ocean is a wave
and this desert is a keyhole
of passed dancing days

So they're yelling out for last call
and you want to comply
so you fade into the background
dissolve into the night

Can you pull down the colossus
Can you justify her scars
Can you bring life to a desert
can you justify her scars

You can hear the breathing
its an unexpected beast
As the icecubes are screaming
you make your retreat

Come you slashers and you rippers
And you wonders of the world
Theres a long closed fairground
And an ocean on the moon

He found himself a private desert
and sometimes he feels that it expands
its like its got him mirrored
the way it fits into his hand
as if its tailored
If you smash yourself against his wall
then you`ll never trip
You`ll never fall

"Time and the hour runs
through the roughest day"
So you dream of lizards in fumbling foreplay
And our faults are in ourselves
until they are unleashed
You can win all you want
As long as you cheat

He tries to make himself something special
As he tries to make his dreams ignite
He says its for Dr. Jekyll
You re a witness now to his last stand
you re in danger
But if you smash yourself against his wall
then you`ll never trip
You`ll never fall

eternal night can make it crucial
you know you ve got to make a stand
Why dont you ask the expert?
Somehow it fits, he`s in command
He`s been repaid he`s shut you down
If you smash yourself against his wall

You`ll never trip
You`ll never fall

You sit amidst your crayons
extravagant balloon
Wonder if theres someone
In the ocean on the moon

But the dark is full of rays
And the desert is a wave
And the ocean is a fishbowl
With nothing on display

Well everyone is bluffing
Watch them reeling in
And if you believe them
The desert`s gonna win
