Desert Song
Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros Lyrics


I was born, the devil's son
Yes my dad, he gave my name
Now my mama keeps saying

Run to the desert
You will see be all that you need to be
Run to the desert
You will see all that you need to see

I woke up to the shadow of a man standing over me
Here in the land of frozen hands
I came out here to kill you father like a Sergio Leoni picture
Gee I hope you understand
And as the red soaked the sand

Run to the desert
You will see all that you need to see
Run to the desert
You will be all that you need to be

"Desert Song"

I was born the devil's son
Yes my dad, he gave my name
Now my mama keeps saying

Run to the desert
You will be all that you need to be
Run to the desert
You will see all that you need to see

I woke up to the shadow of a man standing over me
Here in the land of frozen hands
I came out here to kill you father like a Sergio Leoni picture
Gee I hope you understand
And as the red soaked the sand – shhh

Run to the desert
You will see all that you need to see
Run to the desert
You will be all that you need to be

Dear Edward Sharpe, Jade, and the Magnetic Zeros, While walking my dog
today, I noticed that something was off. Your fans are getting
desperate. Since you've split up, they've been trying pseudo-occult
books and experimenting with stem cells found in cat brains and rabbit
intestines. You inspired them to reconfigure their DNA and open their
third eyes. But without your anima/animus example, the fans have begun
mutating into creatures from our evolutionary past.
-- You are the spiritual superheroes of a corrupt digital planet. Help us
overthrow the Old World Order Surveillance Spectacle Culture and shed
our names like ducks shed water. Without your music as a guide, we are
self-blind: oscillating between weird loners and terrified
daughters-of-Dracula.
-- Getting Jade back into the fold is a spiritual test for everyone. If
passed, your band will go beyond the deserts, shores and mountains to
hail the birth of a new kind of music; to taste the fruits of hard-won
wisdom; to celebrate the retreat of tyrants and demons; to cast away
superstition and hatred; to explore the incredible, baroque
possibilities of the mind; and to usher in the arrival of a New Golden
Age.

@Cordell Carrier BEST DAD EVER AMIRIGHT?

"His father would often take the family on long car trips through the desert. On one such trip, his mother shot footage of his father chanting in the desert, cradling Alex's baby sister Gabi, which would one day become a part of the video for the Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros song "Desert Song"."

If Salvidor Dali and Tim Burton dropped acid together, this would be the result.

They forgot to credit shrooms in the making of this video.

Everyone doesn't "have to" get high to enjoy it - but it's obvious that the song is inspired by or influenced by tripping on some kind of drug. If you've been high you can see it, and that's fine. If you haven't been high like this and don't relate to that aspect then that's fine, too. But don't fool yourself into thinking this group doesn't trip pretty damn hard and then come up with these wild videos and songs.

Saying that they had to have had drug experiences definitely takes away from their natural talent. Yes, they have, but for the most part, they are a relatively sober bunch. Ebert, being in recovery and all

i'm a stoner, i'll admit that. But...i watched this sober and it almost makes me want to stay sober in the sense that, this spoke to me on a deep level i wouldnt have realized high.
