"The Mountain is Burning" as written by and John Patrick Vivian Flynn....
The cause and effect never met, never met
The cause and effect never met
The end hasn’t happened
My soul’s in the blue
The end hasn’t happened
As the mountain is burning

In the words of the dead
You were never among
There were times I was old
There were times you were young
The gods are not kind
Say a passionate few
There’s a struggle at large
Some you win
Some you lose
There’s a fight in the air
Not what Kilmarnock’s for
All your countrymen gone
Yet they open the door

The cause and effect never met, never met
The cause and effect never met
The end hasn’t happened
My soul’s in the blue
The end hasn’t happened
As the mountain is burning

In the careful rest
That brings solace to all
Where the whispers of fires
In the windows and walls
Through the windows and walls
Is the world you might need
And if creature you are
As it’s man in the trees
In the trees of old love
In the leaves I forget
Are your parents and children
The new to beget

The cause and effect never met, never met
The cause and effect never met
The end hasn’t happened
My soul’s in the blue
The end hasn’t happened
As the mountain is burning

You’re a break in the line
When humility’s end
Is the best you can bring
To the table, my friend
You should know you’ll be fixed
Like your word is as true
As the word in your heart
Is the one in the blue
Ever born in the mist
Ever dead in the sun
We’ll be welcoming home
The prodigal ones

The cause and effect they’re the same, are the same
The cause and effect they’re the same
The end is illusion
My soul’s in the air
The end is illusion
As the mountain is burning

In the words of the dead
The gods are not kind
There’s a fight in the air
In the careful rest
Through the windows and walls
In the trees of old love
The break in the line
You know you’ll be fixed
Ever born in the mist
