"Desert Song" as written by and Collen/savage/allen/elliott/clark....
Dark and dirty
Like you have never seen
A mind so twisted
With thoughts so unclean.
My heart is racing
All tattered and torn
I stand here naked
As the day I was born.

Over and over I stand
I'm holding the world in my hand
I got to believe

The sky is falling
On this setting son
Echoes of silence
Ringing loud and long
This isolation
Is the king of pain
A lost horizon
In an ocean of flames

Only the lonely will stand
I'm holding the world in my hand
I got to believe

I've been here before,
But not as I stand here today
I wait for the dawn
Ready to walk
Into the light

    General CommentThis is one of my favorite songs off of Def Leppard's "Retroactive" album. A real rocker that would've helped Def Leppard through the nineties if they'd released it instead of the constant stream of ballads from "Adrenalize" and "Retroactive".
