Desert sky
Dream beneath the desert sky
The rivers run but soon run dry
We need new dreams tonight

Desert rose
Dreamed I saw a desert rose
Dress torn in ribbons and in bows
Like a siren she calls to me

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's Country, yeah

Set me alight
We'll punch a hole right through the night
Everyday the dreamers die
And see what's on the other side

She is liberty
And she comes to rescue me
Hope, faith, her vanity, yeah
The greatest gifts are gold

Sleep comes like a drug
In God's Country
Sad eyes, crooked crosses
In God's Country, yep

Pluck it up, Edge

Naked flame
She stands in a naked flame
I stand with the sons of Cain
Burned by the fire of love
Burned by the fire of love
