I looked outside of my window
There was fear in the beat of my heart
There was desert as far as the eye could see
Blistering, dusty and hard

I texted you in desperation
I said, "Heaven, forbid this place
It's hotter than hell and I'm losing my cool
It's just not of the human race", no, no

Way down low, death valley
A thousand miles to go, oh
Way down low, death valley, yeah
A thousand miles to go

Ooh, what if the engine should break down?
What if a tyre should blow?
What if my soul should slip off this bus
And land in the inferno?

Bouncing and tumbling onward
Watching in vain for a change
A windmill, a billboard, a Joshua tree
A rusted old home on the range, yeah

Way down low, hey, hey, death valley
A thousand miles to go, death valley
Way down low, hey, oh
A thousand miles to go

Slippery sand in the back of my throat
Silica in my eyes
Pretty soon this will all be another bad dream
If we make it to the other side
If we make it, if we make it

Death valley, hey
A thousand miles to go, yeah, death valley
Way down low, death valley
A thousand miles to go, hey

And ain't it a human race, no
Ooh, not of the human race

I got slippery sand in the back of my throat
Silica in my eyes
Just another bad, bad dream
If we make it to the other side
