Some songs are little novellas, this is one of those.


Carrie I’m dead on my feet
just take the wheel for awhile
When we get to the Salton Sea
You can wake me

When the things in my head
Meet the things that I see
when all of these worlds are colliding in me
I said what I said ‘cause I thought it would be
The right thing

The right thing
met the wrong thing
out on the street then
that’s when the wrong thing
happened to me

We fell down that golden road
Into the arms of the blue-white sea
Everything so shiny and new there
killed me

when the things that you want
Meet the things out of reach
When all of these dreams start
To rotting in me
I did what I did ‘cause I thought it might
Set us free

But freedom, don’t come cheap
oh how much freedom
oh how much freedom
oh how it cost me

Just lay me down for awhile
The desert night is so soft and sweet
Billions of perfect stars

When the things that I loved
meet the things that I need
when all of these words are exploding in me
I did what I did but it never seemed to be
the right thing
