On the Emfirst part of the Fmjourney I was looking at all the life. There were plants and birds and rocks and things, there was sand and hills and rings. The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz and the sky, with no clouds. The heat was hot and the ground was dry but the air was full of sound. I've been through the desert on a horse with no name. It feels good to get out of the rain. In the desert, you can remember your name because there aint no one for to give you no pain. La laaa, laaa, la la la la La la la, laaa, laaa La laaa, laaa, la la la la La la la, laaa, laaa After two days in the desert sun my skin began to turn red. After three days in the desert fun I was looking at a river bed. And the story it told of a river that flowed made me sad to think it was dead.

Chorus

After nine days I let the horse run free because the desert had turned to sea. There were plants and birds and rocks and things there was sand and hills and rings. The ocean is a desert with it's life underground and a perfect disguise above. Under the cities lies a heart made of ground but the humans will give no love. La laaa, la, la la la la La la la, laaa, la etc.
Last verse:  s-t-r-e-t-c-h  'above' ( ahhh-bove)
