I was looking through the Bible
I was looking at a code
If you try you can't remember
That what you see is just what you know
So I hide my feelings for you to find

I was climbing up Blue Mountain
Say, "I need someone," that train just said, "I need someone"
(I need it. I need it. I need it. I need it.)
Wherever you go, whatever you do, I'll be waiting
Wherever you go, whatever you do, I'll be waiting for you

We can live on Blue Mountain, like living in a sunset
We can live honestly and true
We can live on Blue Mountain, like living in a sunset
I wanna live on Blue Mountain with you

I was looking through the Bible
I was there at the show
Some of the early morning blues on the radio
Yeah, yeah, ye-ah
Yeah, yeah, ye-ah,
Yeah, yeah, ye-ah, for you to find

We can live on Blue Mountain, like living in a sunset
We can live honestly and true
We can live effortlessly, like children on a swing set
I wanna live on Blue Mountain with you

On Blue Mountain, God will save you
Put the pieces back together
(On Blue Mountain, God will save us
Put the pieces back together)

    Link(s)Do these lyrics have anything to do with 'The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test'? The Pranksters travel across Blue Ridge Mountain and it sounds like a book that Sam would be inspired by (very good read btw!).

    My InterpretationI'm hearing "I was looking at a code". From my perspective, Blue Mountain represents a place of disposition that christianity presents for people. "What you see is just what you know" - we are insignificant on a universal level, but we make ourselves forget that so we can find reason in our lives. We climb Blue Mountain in hopes of finding other lost souls to live harmoniously with, to abide by a common code of conduct, and ultimately save each other from desperation and loneliness. In this way, God is the idea that life will come easy to us if we live in ignorance of the fact that there is no point in living. :-)

    This song empowers me, no matter the intention of the artist, by my own interpretation. It's not easy being a cynical atheist, but at some point you have to stop your belly aching, put the pieces of your life back together, and just live true to yourself.
