Up on over the mountain, where it's keep or stay
Causing all that racket boy, they been doing that all day
And if you could find one
Wouldn't take him on
'Cause those boys are as clever now as the day is long

But he who holds the north wall
Is gonna' save his mortal kin

Back from the eastern wars they tell you what they've seen,
Mountains melt for dreadful armies and a new man machine

And the days they are retreating just as the condor steals his keep
And it's taking me over
It's taking me over
It's taking me over
It's taking me over

(Don't you see)
We're all useless, here in your new society
Estranged in our own land
On the earth of our father's hand we swear
To remember that were not alone child

Up on over the mountain East to the end
These eyes are fit for the fair and the knowledge of all men

But let you be forewarned from North to South
Whatever your burn is yours and no one else

Beyond the seventh hour
And takin' beyond the silent shade
Take your leave young prowler
And takin' beyond the balance made
It's takin' me over...
This crowd of hollowed mirth
It's taking me over...

(Don't you see)
We're all useless here in your new society
Estranged in our own land
On the earth of our father's hand
We swear to remember
That we're not alone, child
We're not alone, child
We're not alone, child...

    General CommentI think that this song is about a guy who came home from Afghanistan and didn't know how to fit back in with civilian life, dealing with memories, flashbacks, and the nightmares that come with being a combat veteran. Remember that we are not alone and buring the 420 that many of us use to cope with coming home. I totally relate to this song having been there myself.

    General CommentThis song is about American supported coups in South America against socialist governments so they could be replaced by western-empathizing puppet governments, despite how this may disenfranchise the people of those societies ("We're all useless, here in your new society, estranged in our home land"). Simple.
