lyrics

There's a man
and he's a fisherman
way out in the Mojave Desert
and he pulls giant trout out
of the California Aqueduct
and fries them up in the hot dry High Desert

Now there's a man
and he's a mountain man
way up in the Colorado Rockies
and he pulls every-colored strands of sands
from the roadside shelves across the country
and he bottles them up in the Colorado Rockies
in Ouray

And if you don't believe what I'm saying's true
just go out West and you'll find them too
dreaming away on the edge of the frame
They realize reality's just another game that we play
in our minds
every time

Now there's a woman
She's a teenage pregnant woman
way out in the Val Verde canyon
and she writes letters to the nation and God
sealed away in time capsules
that she buries on down in the Chiquita Canyon Landfill
Val Verde!

Now there's a guy
He's some kind of artist guy
way out on ole Mansteinstrasse
and he builds a portal to heaven and hell
at the end of civilization
up on a butte in the Mojave Desert

And if you still don't believe what I'm saying's true
you can just go out West and you'll find them too
dreaming away on the edge of the plain
They realize reality's just another game that we play
in our earthen minds
every time
