lyrics

Near the town of Jericho
after the sun sets behind the mountains
I've passed a city in the dusk
a splendor like no other
of glittering jewels and diamonds in the dust
on a basin of stone and sand
only to see her fade away again
sinking into the desert in a flash flood
a lost treasure of the nomads

Don't let it dazzle you
or play tricks on your mind
the beautiful mirage
stand facing the sun
in the first rays of light
let the shadows fall behind

She rises out of the sandstorms
queen of the desert
long crow black waving hair
commands her troops without a word
her eyes illuminates them all
I found myself riding that storm

Should you bear witness
at the grand dance of the birds of prey
their wild colors at the fading day
a divine tapestry for you the dead

Are you still waiting for
flashing signs and visions?
are you still biting at the
hand that feeds you?
driven to extremes
with a hunger that never ends
out on the highway
let the chips fall where they may


Birds circle, roar above
shadows gather unto a night
the land of the prophets
a body without a head
shackled to their master's hands
a promise of demise
soldiers passing by
hyenas in their thousands wait
laughing like a mad men

This land has bled so many lives
you're born to live and not to die!
desperately waiting for the night
fall embraced by the crimson skies

Are you still waiting for
flashing signs and visions?
are you still biting at the
hand that frees you?
driven to extremes
with a beauty that never ends
out on the highway
