She skipped town, dimmed the city lights

Packed her possessions, left her lover’s bedside

The engine blew, shy of the borderline

Ditched the Pontiac, the desert swallowed her alive

 

This settlement creaks under the weight

Of abandoned love and a faceless magistrate

I've paid my dues, settled my debts ten-fold

I’m sentenced to decay, a solitary soul

 

Bleach my bones in the desert sun

Tell the coroner I've found my salvation

On the barren plains and motorways that claimed my love

 

The sun sinks low like a pendulum

Ticking away the years until my penance is done

My mortal heart has staked a claim in you

Sweep my sorrows clean, fill this vacancy for two

 

Bleach my bones in the desert sun

Tell the coroner I've found my salvation

On the barren plains and motorways that claimed my love
