Miles and Miles of Wilderness

Find shelter under a barren tree
Stay low and squint with distress
What do you see? What do you see?
Miles and miles of wilderness

Beauty is a mirage in the wilderness
That instant hope gone in a flash
When you realize and assess
That you've been imagining that splash 

Yet in the middle of it all
That hectic crisis 
You yell, you shout, you bawl
Bliss! Bliss!
