Honestly, it's a nice little song but very, very far from my favorite on the album.

Bomb, but it's so tough to choose...I love this album like a an unborn child that is destined for greatness. I'm not really sure what that means.

You were resurrected for agreeing with me on Bittersweet Me.

Poor result voting out Bittersweet last round. Low Desert is resoundingly average, got that bullshit American swagger that sounds anything but genuine. Quite horribly forced

an eyelash or a little bit of sleep?
did time stand still?
just call it. now, and you're on your way.

hey
hey hey
hey

all the ashtrays cities and the freeway drives
broken casinos and waterslides
the 18 wheeler and the payback dives
gravity pulls on the powerlines.
a jetstream cuts the desert sky,
this land could eat a man alive.
let's say you'd leave it all behind.

hey
hey hey
hey

"tricked again." let go.

there's a radio tower, it's egging you on.
back to the place where you never belonged.
where the people thrive on their own contempt.
whatever meaning is long gone spent.
if you had to guess or make bet,
would you place yourself inside of it?
the mountains yawn. the clouds let out a sigh.
"tricked again." let go. okay.

hey
hey hey

Personal choices to go forward:

Undertow (one of my favorites since I heard them play it on the Monster tour)
Be Mine (Thom Yorke chose THIS song to sing with Peter, Mike, and Bill. SOARING guitar work)
E-Bow the Letter (lyrical brilliance + Patti Smith = WIN)
New Test Leper (not really new territory but a very well-written song)

nevertheless a great song though


for me:
E-Bow
Be mine
Leave
How the west was won ...

though I wouldn't mind Undertow and New Test Lepper as #3 and 4 either
