"Desire" as written by Mark Taylor, Adam Phillips and Jeffrey Reagan Taylor....
I want to be clean, I want to be whole
I want revenge, I want control
I want to give up, I want to give in
Destroy all I have been
I want to be cruel, I want to be cold
I want a chance to sell my soul
I want to break out, I want to dive in
To lose myself in sin

[Chorus:]
I don't need anything
I'm just wanting
Just wanting
I don't need anything
I'm just wanting
Just wanting
Desire all desire is
Desire feeds desire
Desire all desire is
Desire breeds desire

I want to scream, I want to shout
I want to have faith and never doubt
I want to bend, I want to break
To sleep and never wake
To break down walls and to escape
Be alone and hide my face
I want to feel, I want to touch
Want to stop wanting it so much

[Chorus]

    General CommentI agree about it being amazing. My own feeling is that sometimes, you just get the urge to break out and do something completely uncharacteristic of yourself. I know I feel that way sometimes. It's not necessarily something that I would do, but sometimes I just desire to be something else.

    My OpinionThe song is about the desire to be content.

    General CommentThis song rings to me some of the Buddhist leanings Glenn has expressed in interviews; one of the precepts is one of the sources of suffering is desire. So to me, it's very simple. Desire is a disease, something to be eliminated; we should appreciate what we have, stop accumulating junk, and be content.
