Mojave

(Bring Back The Real Don Steele)

Have you heard the hot Mojave
Calling you to up and leave behind
Leave behind the race
And the bumping grind
Leave behind the pace
Leave it all behind in hot Mojave
Have you heard the hot Mojave
Calling you come forth and leave behind
Leave behind the chain
And the double bind
Leave behind the strain
Leave it all behind and find the Mojave

Where do you go when the body dies
Does the spirit rise
Or blend into oblivion
Is there a place you can get perfection
And grok while you still have a body
Eradicate the sadness in Mojave

Leave behind your lords and masters
Leave behind the old disasters
Leave behind the rotten dogmas
All the drawn-out melodramas
Leave behind the sexy bedlam
Leave behind the interregnum
Leave behind your gods and pharaohs
Walk the straightened arrows all over Mojave

Where do you go when the body dies
Does the spirit rise
Or blend into oblivion
Is there a place you can get perfection
And grok while you still have a body
Egress of the ego in Mojave

Leave behind insipid wisdoms
Leave behind malignant systems
Leave behind useless illusions
All the myriad confusions
Leave behind your mythic prisons
Leave behind restricted visions
Leave behind all fixed opinions
Join the misfit minions who wander Mojave

Lie on your back and face the heavens
Consent to let death become a friend
Rest your best defenses in the desert
Till you learn just what it means to end

Leave behind your lords and masters
Leave behind the old disasters
Leave behind the rotten dogmas
All the drawn-out melodramas
Leave behind insipid wisdoms
Leave behind malignant systems
Leave behind useless illusions
All the myriad confusions
Leave behind the sexy bedlam
Leave behind the interregnum
Leave behind your mythic prisons
All the wrong restricted visions
Leave behind . . .
