Parched soul
Golden grass in sunlight
Waiting for a cigarette
Tossed from a car
To let it all ignite
Restless ground
Searching for a better place
Carving the landscape
Where ancient redwoods
Reach up into space

The fires of California
Glow on the other side of the hill
Everything changes all the time in California
Still I’m afraid nothing ever will

Stand in the sand
Watch the fog roll in
It sneaks by
Like a drunk late at night
Swears it won’t happen again

Sometimes the smoke
Blurs the sky with haze
Makes the sunsets more lovely
What more could we ask
At the end of your days
