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

"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"."

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.

@Tanner Adams Thanks man, nice of you to say.

@Jordan Crawford I think drugs should only ever be used to break down walls, once they are gone you shouldn't need any substance to bring you back to that realization and mindset. Good for you

This song isn't about drugs or tripping out...Alexander's father was a psychotherapist, and a very Freudian one at that, and it's about his relationship with his father...Which is why he kills him in the video. Everything in the video and the song has deep emotional and psychological meaning behind it.

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