lyrics

I saw your face
in a sand cloud
a mile high
you devoured me whole
and into a strange new world

with
nothing behind me
nothing ahead
and nothing beside me
only inside

oh desert spirit
lead me to water
or some kind of shelter
in a city
built to burn

oh in the Black Rock Desert
alkali dust in my eyes
oh I can see
eternity
oh the ashes hold
shapes of our destiny
the stuff we were made
to be
to burn

to burn

on the dust white tiger I
rode in on
I am luminous
she gives me courage
I laid by your side
for the last time and
into the deep night
I said goodbye
goodbye

oh I finally know
what it is
to burn

on the dust white tiger I
rode in on
I am luminous
she gives me courage
we tried to catch the sun
but time waits for no one
and we lost our way
smoke and neon skyline
I laid by your side
for the last time and
into the deep night
I said goodbye
goodbye

I wrote your name
on the temple wall
and when the fire came
all the pain was gone

and it's
a white out
a white out
a white out
