"The White Mountains" as written by and Carpenter Huffman....
The thing is we live in fear - fear of the monsters in a crowd
Three legged machines that haunt my dreams
Machines made of metal so cold
Could there be something to believe?
A place where we can find the refuge we need?
Dwarfing the trees, the machines block out the sky
Machines fueled by ugliness and greed
Could this be something to believe?
A place where we can find the refuge that we need
A place where their long arms can't reach
Up in the mountains where we can still believe
From the heights we'll wage this war for all the things we long for
So we can think the way we like
This could be something to believe
A place where we can live the music that we breathe
Our lungs are strong as in our song
Up in the mountains where we can still believe
From the heights we'll wage this war for all the things we long for
So we can sing the way we like

    General CommentThis is simply about the book by the same name by John Christopher. Very similar to war of the worlds but more in depth than that book and more about the world after an alien takeover.
