Joshua Tree's looking' over at me
dust in the wind coming round again
have you ever been lost in the desert
have you drifted across the wasteland
city people you say you love it so
gazing at the dry turf through a photo

Desert folks we dance for rain
desert folks we wait for trains
oh how I hate it here but I do love it dear
desert folks driving ourselves insane

we like to get away somedays

in the black nights,
we see the stars a little bit clearer
during the black nights
we tend dream a little bit bigger
there is no color
no rhyme no rhythm going round
people grow tired
before the sun intends on going down

we like to get away somedays
but we always decide to come back
cause deep down we'll always be desert rats
