Lyrics: Deserted


Recorded at: London Bridge Studio, Seattle (Feb - June 1992)

 

Grab my knee and look at me
And try to tell me Iíll be home soon
Asleep in my bed and unstoned
Iím tired of me this way
I donít know what Iíve gotten into
But Iím glad itís now instead of sooner
This desert heat has crowded me strong
With a wish I had for winter
Itís not as gentle as it sounds
As though it sounded yesterday
When I heard a leaf of my life hit the ground
And as a bottle cap flew from my fingers
I donít know what Iíve gotten in to
But Iím glad itís now instead of sooner
This desert heat has crowded me strong
With a wish I had for winter
And the sands blew in my eyes
I stood on the edge and looked down to see
The light of a new life, shinning up on me
With a wish that I had
The sand blew in my eyes

 " 'Deserted' is about coming back from the desert. We were all tripping on acid, and I was tripping when I got home the next morning at 10:00. The song's like, "Man, I've got to get sober- I'm tired of tripping my balls off. I'm completely exhausted, dehydrated, hungry. I just wanted to be in my bed and 'unstoned'. I walked in the door, grabbed my guitar, and wrote the first verse-just done. It came so fast, it was ridiculous..."
Brad Smith from the book "A devil on One Shoulder and an Angel on The Other" by Greg Prato
