"Misty Mountain" as written by and Ferron Foisy....
Up the misty mountain
Wildflowers bind the ground
Down by the rushing river
Force will wear those boulders down

Me? I'm underneath my covers
Me? I'm trapped inside my brain

Well, up above the misty mountain
Up above the rushing river
Up above the bed of longing
The eagle takes the wind

The eagle takes the wind, my friend
The eagle takes the wind
It makes me think of this my friend
Where does the eagle live in me?

I am crawling through this city
I say the city will be my home
I say "Ferron, you are halfway pretty"
And may you never be alone

Be it's gonna be in favor
Be it but a moment gone

But I stood before the mirror
Like an open ended cavern
Like a breath held in
And I barely knew my name

I barely knew my name, my friend
I barely knew my name
It make me think of this my friend
Where do I live in me?

I barely knew my name, my friend
I barely knew my name
It makes me think of this my friend
Where do I live in me?

Oh, it's a planet of resistance
It's a whirling flame of choice
I hear my comrades in persistence
I swear they'll know us by our voice

Though we lay down in dusty corners
We are ragged as a scar
And when we rest our eyes they open
We are always off to war

We're always off to war, my friend
We're always off to war
It makes me think of this my friend
Where can the quiet be?

Oh is it up the misty mountain?
Where wild flowers bind the ground
Is it down by the rushing river?
Where forces wears those boulders down

Is it underneath my covers?
Is it trapped inside my brain?
Is it up above the misty mountain?
Is it up above the rushing river?
Is it up above the bed of longing?

Where the eagle takes the wind (c'mon)
The eagle takes the wind (c'mon)
The eagle takes the wind (c'mon)
The eagle takes the wind
