Calling out
Demanding answers
Pleading skies
Cry for hours
Dropping peace bombs
Collecting prayers
A sky that mirrors
A sky that stares, as I sing

I have been to the mountain
And I have walked on his shores
I have seen, but I can't see him no more.

Round'em out, make an echo
Destroy the destroyer
And do it fast
That man lived in this town
'til that pig took him down
And have you heard the sound,
Of a man stop breathing, pleading...

I have been to the valley,
And I have sung all her songs
Watch me sing along
And I say,

I have been to the mountain
And I have walked on his shores
I have seen, but I can't see him no more.
