lyrics

Riding on horseback we trek the desert
I got a sun burn it makes my head hurt
Is that a lake or is it the sand
We drink the dream on our knees and hands
We hunt with our fists we eat with our teeth
We sleep in our walk we talk in our sleep
Desert to island island to sea
With or without present company

Trouble the oarsman calls out his name
His seawater breakfast plays with his brain
One hundred o'clock we're off by degrees
Rowing one boat across seven seas
Shipwrecked on a rock we've lost half the crew
To amoebic dysentery, scurvy, and flu
Desert to island island to sea
With or without present company

Flying in first class making good time
Vodka and tonic squeezing the lime
This is your captain wind shears ahead
Trying to land but crashing instead
Oxygen masks drop from the ceiling
Somebody shouts something's on the wing
Desert to island island to sea
With or without present company

Riding the rails across the country
Living off cornbread and oolong tea
Staying awake in the sleeping car
When we get there we'll know where we are
We love with our lips we fight in the street
We sleep in our walk we talk in our sleep
Desert to island island to sea
With or without present company
