A song about Wonder Valley California. (Near Joshua Tree National Park.)

Miri Hunter and Thom Merrick (c) 2015

Circus of the Sun is a road song. It's literal. It's about driving east on Amboy Road, toward the Dale Gold Mine (the mother lode.) We pass the only bar, we do not stop there, which is strange, but "we have to change" we are avoiding gossip and gas-lit environments. We turn onto Hollywood Lane to visit a friend and never quite get to our destination. Are we looking for freedom? It's the reason we came here in the first place.
CIRCUS OF THE SUN



Drivin’ down that road, passed the Mother lode

It occurred to me God might be angry

In my damaged car I just passed a bar

Headed down the washboard trail, rollin’ somewhere



dot-n-da-da-da.……I wanna be free

dot-n-da-da-da.……Have a mercy on me

dot-n-da-da-da…….’Cos livin’ ain’t easy



In the afterglow I thought l’d drive real slow

So I wouldn’t lose it all on Hollywood Lane

I need to change, there’s no one left to blame

Gaslit whispers played tricks on me



dot-n-da-da-da.……I wanna be free

dot-n-da-da-da.……Have mercy on me

dot-n-da-da-da…….’Cos livin’ ain’t easy



Everything it seems has all been a dream

Good friends I’ve known, they’ve turned on me

Although I’m not the sacred poet

The desert found in me only a lover
