The mountains surrounding
Mark the boundaries you're not meant to leave
I'll stay far away
But to keep my place
I want to write our names on Culm Bank's face

Our hands only shake when we cross state lines
I've made hundreds of mistakes
And peace with dying in my sleep
That's just right with me
While the kids back home will leap
To the riverbeds below below Market Street

The mountains surrounding
Mark the boundaries only mentally
Never set free
You know where I'll be
There's a time a place
When and where they'll bury me

Our hands only shake when we cross state lines
I've made hundreds of mistakes
And peace with dying in my sleep
That's just right with me
While the kids back home will leap
To the riverbeds below below Market Street

    Lyric CorrectionThese are the correct lyrics straight from the album booklet:

    The mountains surrounding
    mark the boundaries you're not meant to leave
    I'll stay far away
    but to keep my place
    I want to write our names on a culm bank's face

    Our hands only shake when we cross state lines
    I've made hundreds of mistakes and
    peace with dying in my sleep
    but that's what's right for me
    While the kids back home will leap
    to the riverbeds below Market Street

    The mountains surrounding
    haunt the boundaries only mentally
    Never set free
    You know where I'll be
    There's a time a place
    when and where they'll bury me

    Our hands only shake when we cross state lines
    I've made hundreds of mistakes and
    peace with dying in my sleep
    but that's what's right for me
    While the kids back home will leap
    to the riverbeds below Market Street
