The Mountain - Lyrics

i was born in a forked-tongued story
raised up by merchants and drugstore liars
now i walk on the paths of glory
one foot in ice, one in fire

i see the mountain, the mountain come to me
i see the mountain and that is all i see

some poor prophet comes, some find solace
some lay him down in a junkyard bay
some will chase us and some will call us
gone, gone, gone in a day

gone to the mountain, the mountain come to me
i see the mountain and that is all i see

miller take me and miller grind me
scatter my bones on the wild green tide
maybe some rovin' bird will find me
over the water we'll ride

over the mountain, the mountain come to me
i see the mountain and that is all i see

some build temples and some find altars
da-ri kur-niserin-na, pirin zalag, pirin zalag

some come in tall hats and robes spun fine
da-ri kur-niserin-na, dili-du-a, dili-du

some in rags, some in gemstone halters
da-ri kur-niserin-na, pirin zalag, pirin zalag

some push the pegs back in line
da-ri kur-niserin-na, dili-du-a, dili-du

i see the mountain, the mountain come to me
i see the mountain and that is all i see
