    Lyrics
    From the dusty mesa
    Her looming shadow grows
    Hidden in the branches of the poison creosote
    She twines her spines up slowly
    Towards the boiling sun

    Lyrics
    We stopped for coffee in the Redwood forest
    Giant dripping leaves, spoons of powdered cream
    I wanted to kiss you but I wasn't sure how
    Like those Indians, lost in the rain forest
    Forced to drag burning wood wherever they went

    Lyrics
    It's four in the morning, the end of December
    I write you now just to see if you're better
    New York is cold but I like where I'm living
    There's music on Clinton Street all through the evening
    I hear that you're building

    Lyrics
    My name I don't remember, though, I hail from Ohio
    I had a wife and children, good tires on my car
    What took me from my home and put me in the earth
    Was the mouth of a deep, dark hole I found behind my barn
    We'd been filling it with garbage as long as you could count

    Lyrics
    If the world should end in fire
    The oceans boiling into flame
    I will watch the last sunrise
    And think of all the sunny days
    When the mystery of the skies
    If the World Should End in Fire  -  48,700 plays
