Circa Survive - Child Of The Desert Lyrics



Was it all burdened with sin
Searching like a child in the night
Trust in me, no one here could see
I would never lead you astray

Oh, all is lost
All will be returned in the end
Oh, all we have
All we have is somewhere to begin

Nesting in the thorn bush
Blowing in the breeze
Calculate the pattern
That is causing my disease
Child of the desert
Never had a name
Climax on the concept of eliminating pain

Take it in underneath the sun
Washed into the surface of your skin
Don't believe
Time will help you see
I would never lead you astray

Oh, all is gone
All will be returned in the end
Oh, all you save
Dare I say, just give it away

Give it away
Give it away

Lurking in the shadows
Nurtured in the dark
Rise above the surface to
Eliminate the spark

Wild like a daydream
Soon to be erased
Searching for the moment
To evacuate the race

Nesting in the thorn bush
Blowing in the breeze
Calculate the pattern
That is causing my disease
Child of the desert
Never had a name

No one here will ever be the same

Not sure how to make it real
How to take my time, how to come alive
I don't want to feel a thing
I don't want to know, I don't wanna
I don't want
I don't want to take my time
Make it come alive, make it come on

Circa Survive Child Of The Desert Comments
  1. A D I E R W

    This is the first time I've heard circa Survive and I feel that they sound a lot like The Mars Volta in this song

  2. Glen

    This is great ain't it

  3. Barry A.

    NOT to offend anyone....but I thought a chick sung this song....HEARD it as backup music and thought for sure a gals voice....

  4. Arianna Ommundsen

    This was in PHILLLY <3

  5. Marcixchu Marcixchu

    Loving this song and the vocal range of this guy.

  6. Judea Dumont

    Hi Circa. This song changed my life on 7/25/2019 through 7/26/2019. It's not a joke. I am another person deeply saved by the music you have made over the years. I've been listening to you for 9 years, since I was seventeen. I can put this song on repeat and let my mind drift into the abyss it crept out of. Catch me driving in a straight line for hundreds of miles with this on blast.

  7. Gabba Ghoul

    That's bailing? what does that mean????

    childofbhaal

    It’s that’s balling

  8. Ali Haider

    Gaara fans, where you at? ❤

  9. Jeff J

    What a SICK music video. 2019 anyone?

  10. The Evil Within Me

    The people who disliked this song are trolling

  11. Angel Del villar

    Warped tour anyone!!

  12. Nathan Swan

    I love how they played this song in American Satan and featured Schema in their soundtrack. Sumerian records all the way!

  13. Li anne

    I have to hear this song live at least once in my life

  14. Banana Wanana8227

    First band second song for the start of my 2019 morning.

  15. change is good

    Love you guys no homo❤

  16. Roger Goza

    Imagine a song with Anthony Green, Tilian Pearson, Jonny Craig, Kurt Travis, Cory Lockwood, Donovan Melero, Thomas Erak and Jon Mess. Now that’d be an epic collaboration

    Miguel Pereda

    Anthony and Jonny Craig are somewhere else on this list man. The rest just try to imitate. I mean, I love Donovan with Sianvar but he literally sounds EXACTLY like Anthony

  17. jealousy vargas

    2018 and I’m still listening to this masterpiece

  18. Matt

    This song is totally about shadow work/inner child

  19. Luis Js

    Buenas canciones ,saludos desde México

  20. William

    How the fuck am I supposed to do that sing scream thing he does? If anyone knows how to please lemme know.

    Color Me Leighzy

    Be tenor
    Under bite Jaw technique
    Pharyngeal Resonance
    Fry scream
    be Anthony Green

  21. Kitty V

    what does it say on is guitar? (2:34ish)

  22. Lorena s

    Tell me how to gravi

  23. Vitória Garcia

    Come to Brazil!!💜

  24. Ricardo Braghetto

    When the song reach this point 3:47 I feel something growing inside my chest and an incredible desire to break things

  25. Tattered Prince

    Reminds me of phantasmagoria.

  26. Self Proclaimed esper

    Damn this sexy mfer his voice is ❤❤❤😘😘

  27. Erik Gutierrez

    Fuck this song is too powerful. Something I would dedicate to my daughter, makes me emotional every time

  28. TGI ŠurVie

    There better then saosin

  29. MrTehAlex

    is that guitar a reference to superbad

  30. Matthew Rodriguez

    Am i like the only one who thinks descensus was like their only “bad” album like the first 4 were pretty good

  31. Kimmy Pagan

    My dream came true! I seen them play this at HOB! I can die happy! They fucking killed it!

  32. spicyboyclique

    People mosh at Circa concerts?

    Ryndan Riley

    Circa concerts are the most surprisingly wild shows I've been to. Both the band and the crowd go hard.

  33. j e s s i k a es

    Boy do I remember seeing these dudes in show back in 2007 in Washington DC. They were amazing.

  34. Toribia Hdz

    This is good my casin needs to hear this

  35. Kimmy Pagan

    Going to see them in November! They NEED to play this one!!

    Daniel Goodwin

    Also going to see them in November
    Sadly i gotta wait til the end of the month

    Kimmy Pagan

    It’s ok. It will be worth it.

  36. Canis Minor

    Finding this band and coming back listenin to both new and old tracks. I am so happy to be part of this generation simply because of the true talent out there like these guys. Holy fucking shit. Like. Do you know how phenomenal it is to be able to hear this.. To the deaf, my whole heart goes out to you :(

  37. Ryan Cesena

    Due to living in Palmdale most of my life , i relate to being a child of the desert and wandering through life's mazes awaiting an exodus. Thank you circa and Anthony. You always provide the best life sound tracks.

  38. Caseh

    Looking at Anthony Green and Jonny Craig, I've learned not to immediately assume what their vocal range would be by looking at them lmao I wouldn't think the hairy. rugged dudes could hit notes higher that Snoop Dogg on the weekend

  39. Jeremy C

    Colin's pants are way too tight

  40. Lucas Walker

    wish I had a voice with that range, singing in my car to this is like listening to a garbage disposal trying to sound like a piano... doesn't work.

  41. ituajadeh

    so now anthony green play for both saosin and circa survive?

  42. Aaron Malcolm

    in an interview on his return to Saosin he talks a great deal about his sobriety and this particular sing came up.. he said 10 minutes BEFORE this video was shot he did heroin... congrats Anthony for your strength and sobriety.. mostly thanks for your return to Saosin .. keep writing deep music Man!

  43. TrackstarOP

    I was a fan of *Saosin* when *Translating the Name* Ep came out so naturally I would fall in love with this band as well. I love all his projects including
    *The Sound Of Animals Fighting* which some may not know.
    This guy has so much material to write about, its insane and a good thing for us ;)

  44. Serj Mejia

    High school was the shit because of this!!! So much nostalgia!!

  45. kJims OnWeed

    Good stuff

  46. Levi Black

    best artist of all time

  47. Zloy Chort

    А чо,норм!

  48. Alex Millan

    Does anyone know what shoes colin is wearing?

    Nameless Ghoul

    Alex Millan blue and red robin? I think it is macbeth brighton

    Alex Millan

    @Nameless Ghoul thanks appreciate it.

  49. Jav The Ripper

    Was the guitar entrance at 0:03 an accident??

  50. THE EVIL EMPIRE

    This is trash rather listen to EDM than this crap

    Agustina Pirro

    wtf man

    Juan V-Tech

    THE EVIL EMPIRE I think I got abs now because you made me laugh so hard!

  51. Eduardo Reis Nobre

    AID brought me here... Now I understand why Anthony sounded so passionate about his music...

    Yume / DreamishMood

    I don't get it, Anthony himself brought you here? x)

    Yume / DreamishMood

    Eduardo Reis Nobre Thats cool!

  52. MysticZamponite

    I came to this,because my DIM teacher recommended this band to me.

  53. Danillo Visser

    best song ever released on my birthday!

  54. Ace

    The first song I ever heard of Circa was this, that was almost 2 years ago and now it´s my fucking favourite band man. They are awesome. So, if you came here for Saosin, give Circa a chance, you will not regret.

    Joshua Stout

    nice bud, ive been following them for about 4-5 years and they are also my favorite ^^

    Sarcastic Critics

    Ace / Basstrip I started from Anthony's solo album, and then Circa. I knew Saosin as the last.

    Ace

    Thats a nice start tho, now you will be able to appreaciate every member of circa and not only anthony as much of us do at least when we first heard them

    Shannan Osnower

    eh i love saosin but dont like circa... VERY different sound. I like the heavier/catchier stuff

    hexatentacle

    hey man, pass your condolences to your wife and family, but you should totally listen to Deftones' White Pony and *then* listen to Circa Survive's Juturna. Just killl the bass and do it.

  55. Martin Silva

    Is he in a band called Saosin?

    forbidden404

    Yes, former singer and he came back to the band in 2014 or something

    Edwin Jeffries

    He still is in both bands currently after the previous singer that replaced him left and he was able to fix differences he had which had caused him to leave the band and from there circa survive came forth

  56. Braindeath

    Zach Galifianakis-Core

  57. Jackie Noff

    Wow...♡

  58. Caffene

    I love coming back to this video. I was at this show, what great night. Anthony told everyone to stay really still until he said go, then we were supposed to go crazy. makes for a really cool video that's for sure.

    Louis Morello

    Dude this show was phenomenal... I'm actually the dude that's crowd surfing when Anthony green grabs my head! "I want you to hold in all your wiggles!"

    Aaron Hummel

    What's the venue?

    Brian Murray

    Aaron Hummel Union Transfer in Philly

  59. kohra

    his voice doesn't match his appearance...

    Lindsey Northington

    That's the beauty of Anthony Green.

    Sara Looney

    It’s funny I always thought it did

    boysinthesink

    i think stephens christians face matches his voice

    Ally Cavanaugh

    It used to, haha before he got all fit and tatted up

    Andrew Bolesky

    either does mine,,

  60. Steve Manning

    THE BEST

  61. Joshua Gongora

    Rlly wish this band would blow up more

    My Minox Beard

    prog. aint such a dirty word.

    Emanuel Carmona

    i always considered them kind of indie

    Cindi Barrientos

    I honestly think it's better in the way of like their wouldn't be posers that try to ruin the band you know what I mean

    Tom Scott

    The Angry Tree I agree but I think their indie status is very intentional. I'm pretty sure there are major labels that have tried to sign them but doing things their way is important to them. As it is for many of their fans I'm sure

  62. Luna Monbebe

    Hands down absolutely amazing! Circa Survive rised from the grave and decided to murder everyone with a killer album♡👌

  63. Sarahgorath

    When i first saw this video I thought the guys at 4:25 were just random guys having a good time, then I saw it was Anthony Green and a fan and it warmed my heart even more. :)

  64. Clandestinn

    Circa Survive please play on live stream.

  65. Justin Rolling

    Hitting that Mars Volta sound on this one

    chrisp8827

    +Justin Rolling

    A collaboration with those two bands would be amazing.

    chrisp8827

    +Justin Rolling

    A collaboration with those two bands would be amazing.

    Fantomex

    +Justin Rolling I cry. :TMV was amazing.

    Kevin Jones

    I found it more akin to At the Drive-In's Invalid Litter Dept.

  66. Yesenia Rodriguez

    Anthony makes me feel things. love this

    James Fleming

    childofbhaal I'm walking at my park doing exactly this.

  76. Christopher Brieske

    Still cup fucking the mic like a rookie.

  77. Levi Black

    I could careless what you people say about Anthony Green. He is one of the best artists to this day. Such an inspirational guy.

  78. Suck It Hard and Fast

    Just went to their Juturna show in Cincinnati, Detroit, and Chicago. Fucking amazing all three times.

    childofbhaal

    I was there at the Chicago show on LSD dude. Best time of my life

  79. Ryan Toad Ryan Todd

    But seriously, how rad would it be if they featured Donny from HTS on a song.

  80. Heytheresailor

    I went through the comments and was very surprised no one commented on the guitarist's wrinkly head 1:18

    Proud to say I was at the show they recorded this video, Union Transfer in Philly, amazinggggg concert like always Circa.

  86. Austin Wenger

    why can't everyone just get along, we all like the same music here, and difference in opinions will always happen, but doesn't mean that you can't look past it

  87. Haziq Zainal

    This should be the new Metal Gear Solid theme song.

    hexatentacle

    Nope, this will follow you, and you alone like a ghost to the end of time.

  88. Emptydawgg

    Why does the grown adult male singer sound like a 12 year old girl

    AtMostFear

    They all can't sound the same

    childofbhaal

    +Emptydawgg He doesn't, and that's just his natural voice. He's not doing any falsetto at all.

  89. Vortecx Pc

    modern rock at its best ! very inspirational track ! really fucking like this bad :)

  90. Endo Pyro

    i cant listen to this band anymore, the lead singers voice reminds me of Dr.Rockso the rock n roll clown who does cocaine.

    Stanley Milton

    +John Adams Anthony Green has been addicted to heroin for quite some time now, he just recently got help. I love Anthony and hope he really gets straightened out because it would be awful if he overdosed.

  91. Ramses Plascencia

    that breakdown at the end, so good

  92. Kate Zee

    That shot at 1:36 is everything

  93. Frank Fiorella

    It's amazing how people will nit-pick about the littlest of things. Cupping the mic, stage performance, mic technique.

    Jose Barutia

    +Frank Fiorella well from a musician point of view, cupping the mic affects the sound of the vocals which could be good or bad, as does mic technique but its only really for bad if not done properly. On the other side from the sound engineer point of view, cupping the mic and mic technique can make their job harder an make the sound not optimal for the show. As of stage performance, thats just for the public, but not everyone is into it, very variable. Mic technique is not a nit-pick though, is very important and it really bothers me when people don't understand something so simple, although there are some sounds that might need a diferent kind of mic technique to be achieved.
    (i am not trying to fight here by the way, just giving some information from what i've learned from years of experience as a musician and sound engineer, it is true that people make too big of a deal about this sometimes though)

    UnityDeicide

    +Jose Barutia Or, you could just say every person has their own technique. And everyone else should stop bitching.

  94. Sheiluh

    If you think you can't mosh to Circa Survive then you just don't understand.

    Kate Zee

    @Sheiluh That's exactly right. Their crowds are NUTS

    childofbhaal

    @Sheiluh Moshing is fucking lame anyways. I like to enjoy concerts and dance and have fun and not get run into by people flailing their arms that are are way taller and weigh like 100 pounds more than me. No thanks.

  95. Jonathan Lopez

    great songgg mannn!! great rhythm all of that songg!!
