If Gerry Beckley, Dewey Bunnell, and Dan Peek had gone to Burning Man

my first art car - a 12′ tall traffic cone.

On the first part of the journey
I was looking at all the life
There were bikes and drums and fire and things
There was dust and hills and rings
The first thing I met was a guy with a buzz
And the sky with billowy clouds
The heat was hot and the ground was dry
But the air was full of sound

I went to the desert and joined a camp with no name
It felt good to be out of the rain
In the desert you give yourself a new name
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

After two days in the desert sun
My skin had been painted blue
After three days in the desert fun
I was looking at a playa bed
And the story it told of the water that had flowed
Made me sad to think it was dead

You see I went to the desert and met a girl with flames
It felt good to be out of the pain
In the desert you can’t remember your camp
cause there aint no one for to give you no fame
La, la …

After nine days I let the bike run free
cause the desert had turned to sea
There were boats and mermaids and fish and things
There was waves and ice and wings
The ocean is a desert with its life underground
And a perfect disguise above
Under the camp lies a heart made of ground
And the humans will give you love

You see Ive been through the desert in a camp with no plan
It felt good to be out of the sun
In the desert you can burn the man down
cause there aint no one for to give you no pain
La, la …

    If you begin talking in song lyrics, or movie lines I will know for sure you are your Unk ron’s boy or Couz Sean’s brother.
