I was born in a Desert
Barren and bone dry
I tumbled into this desert out of darkness
From some bloodline
The wind put me together
From particles of stardust
Breathed some life into me, then left me here
No one to trust

I was raised on mythology
I drank the blood of a man
Consumed his broken body
To keep me out of this sinner's wasteland
I make my home here anyway
What do you know?
It's just as dark and lonely as I was told
Just as harsh, bitter and cold

I was born in a desert
But I'll escape to a sea
I'm not gonna stay here and be dragged to hell
If I don't have to be
I'll be a Free Man in Paris
I'm sitting in some cafe
My father and my dear mother
They're crying somewhere, miles away...
In a Desert
