I drove out to the canyon
grinding dust up from the sand
I don't ever fuck with the dust devil
He's got the power of an upright in his goddamn hand

Sand becomes a fountain of mist
and wind as hot as flame
The bodies fight right through the night
all faceless and without fame
I grabbed onto a foreign hand
I was walking through a door
but discovered that I was just buying a pint
of Turkey at the liquor store

I drove out to the canyon, baby
I hit the motherfuckin' road
I could not find in all the lives
Exactly like the picture show
The desert sky before my eyes
Had burned into a sea
A flaming mass of oil and gas
And screams of ecstasy

    General CommentHe has the power of an upright? That makes no fucking sense. God, I wish they had put lyrics in the booklet.
