"My Hill" as written by and Adam Michael Turla Sarah Jackson Balliet....
When I was a young boy
I went up to a hill
And looked on to a spot that
A parking lot would fill

I knew would have no say
In whether it was done
I looked on that spot
And I wish I had a gun

When I was older
I took her to my hill
The shopping mart security
Couldn't find us there
It gave us a big thrill

Long ago, the family farm
Would've hidden us from the stores
But yellow weeds and garbage heaps
Hid us from the cars

Now I sit on my hill
In a basement for machines
Rich folks laugh
While the furnace burns
As this condo sits on me

Can't see any blackbirds
Can't see any clouds
The weeds are gone
And so is she

The rich folks choke on billowing smoke
And I found a new hill

    Lyric CorrectionI think it goes
    "In a basement for machines"
    "As this condo sits on me"

    and

    "The rich folks choke on billowing smoke
    and I found a new hill"

    Makes it sound like he now works in the boiler room heating the condos. I also get the feeling he burns the place down at the end and creates a new hill for himself out of the ashes of the condos and rich people.
