"I Can Climb Mountains" as written by Joseph Birch, James Mccarlie Findlay, Will Mcgonagle, Tomas Edward O'donoghue and Justin Robin Schlosberg....
Give me some kind of hope
Give me one honest lie to promote
And try to think better days when you choke
When blood for profit gain wins your vote

And you can fake smiles to make you feel
When its time to break the deal
'Cause it's easy now, I'm easy now
And buy a new disease
When it pays to sell the cure
It's easy now, I'm easy now

'Cause I can climb mountains
I can spit further than you can hurl
And I can swallow failure just to learn
And I can build bridges from, what you burn
And you can fake smiles to make you feel
When its time to close the deal
And it's easy now, I'm easy now
And buy a new disease
When it pays to sell the cure
It's easy now, I'm easy now

'Cause I can run, I can hide
I can take a world of pain in a stride
And I don't need fairy tales to pretend
And I don't need heroes to depend on
I can heal, I can regenerate
I can give birth and I can meditate
And I can hate, I can love, I can fuck
I can see the view below from the top

With arms around it
I'll take the summit
With arms around it
I'm home

    General Commentthis is a good song, and just 2 try n b clever, im gonna hazzard a guess that this song is bout overcoming adversity and not giving a shit about it afterwards.

    General Commentone of my favourite songs of all time, I think this song is a criticism of the corporate world or more specifically the music industry. this become obvious with lines like "buy a new disease when it pays to sell the cure", which is about the lengths people will go to to make payola, but i also agree with stebug in that is is also about overcoming adversity

    General Commenti love this song. i think it is about over coming put downs or things that make you feel down. its more uplifting than just being cheery. love it

    General CommentI do like this song, but I always thought (and I know I'm wrong) the last lines were;

    When I'm surrounded I'll take the summit
    When I'm surrounded, I'll climb

    Which I much prefer to the real lines! Sort it out HIFH!
