About the song
Words of prophecy about life coming to the desert and various fantasy images of encounters and epiphanies and the need for water.
The oasis I fall by holds a black sky and snakes
The crowd here lost all masking busyness
But something emerges from the curses in the stories
And something holds in the mess

You are the God who's been haunting all our dreams
You are the man I meant to meet
With all this wondering to find some goal to seek
You were the point of light to be watching.

Dirt in the water reveals true ugliness
A covering too heavy for those with grief to wear
Did it take a dead king to make a God, from man
Or do I just want to be part of that goodness, broken

Life will bloom again
In the deserts we live in
Let the stones and sand bloom
With flowers we never knew.
