Dam The River



   Going higher than I've ever been
   Sowing seeds of my own destruction...

Tendonitis in my little brain
I flex my thoughts and then I fall again
2 plus 2 makes 4 take 3 you've got 1
Wax is dripping in this desert sun
Yeah, I'm dripping in this desert sun
Oh hot and sticky

Pull the stick sit back and watch the wheels
You know the score but you forget the deal
Precipices tower naked and red
Valleys blossom in my unmade bed
Yeah, they they blossom in my unmake bed
Pink and fragrant desert flowers

   Going higher than I've ever been before
   Planting bombs for my next bloody war
   Going higher than I've ever been
   Sowing seeds of my own destruction

She's a mirage shaped from shimmering sands
Massaging my mind, caressing my shackled hand
An arid beauty grinning lucid and free
Her golden nugget, false prosperity
Another pina colado by the pool for me
High velocity, baby
High velocity, baby, slow down...slow down...

   Damn the flashing plasticene play
   Damn the glitter get it out of my way
   Damn the twinkling night like a daytime
   Dam the river, wash it all away
   Dam the river, wash it all away
   Oh damn the river, bury it under the waves
   Dam the river, dam the river, dam the river...
   Slow down, slow it down
