the flies were steady buzzing heading for the south walking back and forth until the last leave town the dust was always rising powder in your mouth the insides of your nostrils were black with soot and you'll never get around too well on foot the desert's always calling soft and warm embrace the life you live is nothing but a game but if she curses you at least she says your name the desert's always calling bitter to the taste the life you live is just a stupid game but if she curses you at least she calls your name if she curses you at least she knows your name
