The Lyrics

I feel the cactus, ow ow ow ow
I ran into it while in the desert
I wake in pain, ow ow ow ow
It really hurts, can't get all the spines off

I dream of comfort, yeah yeah
Those dreams are far away from how I feel
Drives me insane, yeah yeah
I just sat on another small cactus tree here

This desert cactus, ow ow ow ow
Each of its needles really hurt me
This stupid tree, ow ow ow ow
Nothing else ever tortured me more than this

It just won't heal, no no no no
Why did I go into the desert sands
The burns I feel, oh no, oh no
Are from the sun in my vacation land

This vacation, ugh ugh ugh ugh
Hasn't worked out quite as I had planned
As everyday, whoa whoa whoa whoa
I always end up feeling spikes in the sand

I feel the pain, ow ow ow ow
The pain of cactuses everyday
I won't be back, ow ow ow ow
Never liked deserts much anyway

I dream of rain, yeah yeah yeah yeah
To wash away the injuries I have
To heal the pain, yeah yeah yeah yeah
From the cactus that just went through my hand

Mean desert cactus, ow ow ow ow
Each spine hurts me even more
This spiny thing, ow ow ow ow
I hope I never have more contact with it

Desert Cactus, ow ow ow ow
You know that its needles haunt us all
This awful thing, the rarest plant
Gives you so much pain and makes you fall

Ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ow ooowwww ow ow ow ow ow
Ow oooowww
