Tribute to the late guitarist Tommy Bolin. Bolin fans will catch all the hints dropped throughout the lyrics.

lyrics

Dropped down on the open road,
ghost town that I call home,
wild dogs won't leave me alone,
they're biting right through my bones
sun sets and the wind, it blows,
broken down with a desert rose
picking up that scent again,
I can't believe the state I'm in.

Chorus:
Oh baby won't you take me home
oh baby please don't leave me alone

Is my mind playing tricks on me?
I can't trust what I see
Soundwaves and broken hearts
silver birds shooting through the dark,
I hear your voice
I can't see your face
electric fire in the blood I taste
roots growing from my feet
I feel so trapped
yet I feel so free

Chorus

I'm digging deeper
now I'm in a pit
my chance to escape from this
the music plays on a purple plane
while the gang goes
completely insane
Rosie sings as Carol strums
Karen cries while Alexis hums
I close my eyes and I feel the spin
I can't believe the state I'm in

Chorus
