Desert or Ocean?

I just can’t decide where my heart truly lies.

For anyone that’s spent time out in the middle of nowhere, you know what I mean.

I’ve never been able to put my finger on it.

Maybe it’s the contrast of the intense, blue sky where it meets the horizon, or the arid sandscape and rock formations…. Fuck knows!

But this week’s track has an infectious intro that’s the equivalent of a magic carpet ride into the heart of Red Rock country. If you’re not hooked with the intro, the change in pace throughout the track will keep you on the edge of your seat, accompanied with genius lyrics that just keep you wondering.

I’d love to know your thoughts on the story behind “Sunrise”. My take is one of an incarcerated drifter, possible a repeat offender that’s caught in a vicious cycle – and the only life he knows

 

Here I go again straight up out the motel
Hock my guitar out of a pawn shop jail
If I quit, I'm just rolling the dice
Couldn't pass up the red beans and rice singin'

Oh, my, my, see them girls shake their ass
Underneath the sunrise
Oh, my my, taste the sugar on their lips
Underneath that moonlight

Well, I've never met a devil with a one-eyed dog
Well, you could lead a blind man out of Vietnam
Cause everybody's beggin', well, everybody wants a chance
Stuck in a storm, we'll do a rain dance

Oh, my, my, see them girls shake their ass
Underneath the sunrise
Oh, my my, taste the sugar on their lips
Underneath that moonlight, ooh

Well, I'm taking my chances, I'm taking my sins
Throwin' 'em down the hill and I'll watch 'em come around again
Watched them fall, watched 'em rise up to the sky
Hundred miles an hour across the river to the other side

Oh, my, my, see them girls shake their ass
Underneath the sunrise
Oh, my, my, taste the sugar on their lips
Underneath that moonlight

Well, I've never met a devil with a one-eyed dog
Well, you could lead a blind man out of Vietnam
Cause everybody's beggin', well, everybody wants a chance
Stuck in a storm, do a rain dance
