Far From Any Road Song Lyrics

From the dusty mesa
Her looming shadow grows
Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
She twines her spines up slowly
Towards the boiling sun
And when I touched her skin
My fingers ran with blood

*****

In the hushing dusk under a swollen silver moon
I came walking with the wind to watch the cactus bloom
And strange hands halted me, the looming shadows danced
I fell down to the thorny brush and felt the trembling hands

*****

When the last light warms the rocks
And the rattlesnakes unfold
Mountain cats will come to drag away your bones

*****

And rise with me forever
Across the silent sand
And the stars will be your eyes
And the wind will be my hands……
