"Hill" as written by Jerrad Shain, Wes Geer, Ben Vaught and Mark Young....
What was the reason?
Didn't need one
Like instinct born into a trade
Not by choice but for a purpose
Push the rock move the stone
Forever the hill your home
So, have you come to resurrect me
Or have you come to crucify
Step aside or get behind me
I wish someone would get behind me
And the hill so very high
Does not give comfort
And the sweat upon your brow
Will go unnoticed
You see there will be
Those who come and stand
Come and stand stand in the way
They can't believe that a stone can be moved
So they laugh when you are still
They're waiting for that hill
To swallow you and spit you out
Another casualty of art
Whose only fault was being born
Born between the rock and the stone
Forever the hill your home
I was born to move a mountain
I will die before I fade away
I always thought that I was chosen
King of the hill, King of the hill
And when the light is dim
Who will stand by my side
Crawling on bloody knees
Who will believe in me
Who will stand by me
Who will walk with me
Who will fly with me?
I was born to move a mountain
I will die before I fade away
I always thought that I was chosen
King of the hill, King of the hill

    General Commentwell its obviosly about struggle. the idea of moving the rock is biblical- some dude in hell with a rock that he has to push up a hill, i forget the exact details.

    General CommentAnother song referring to religion...Jesus' struggle with the stone in fron of his final resting place. He's comparing this with his struggle with living. Apparently, the more you know, the harder it is to live on this planet.
    "So, have you come to resurrect me
    or have you come to crucify
    step aside or get behind me!"
    And apparently he feeld alone in his struggles to exist

    General CommentThey reused the lines:

    "Who will believe in me? Who will stand by me?
    Who will walk with me? Who will fly with me?"

    in the later song "Swan Dive".

    General Commentok as posted on hedrocks.com hed's new official site, the song is about sysophus, the greek patron who tried to push a rock up a hill only to see if fall back down the hill. u may have seen such a resemblance in the recent redbull commercials. very interesting meaning. not one you would think a song would be about.
