At magic mountain
Nobody sings today
Nobody speaks today
Close my eyes
And hope to see
Weeks go by like a day
In a lowland

I live here on magic mountain
No one leaves magic mountain

At magic mountain
Nothing changes
Everything stays the same
Cross my heart
And hope to live
All the time
With a little fever

I stay here on magic mountain
No one leaves magic…

My heart can hear you sing
My heart can see you speak
But I never make it in the flatlands
I must stay on magic mountain

    General CommentI think this song is talking about drugs.
    They are seemingly helpful - the place is referred to as "Magic" Mountain - but once you are hooked, there is no way out:
    I live here on magic mountain
    No one leaves magic mountain
    The girl is obviously very deep in her drug obsession, and each day has lost its meaning:
    At magic mountain
    Nothing changes
    Everything stays the same
    Although the girl still has hope, she admits that she has lost all worth in her life.
    My heart can hear you sing
    My heart can see you speak
    But I never make it in the flatlands
    I must stay on magic mountain
    (I think the flatlands or lowlands refer to normal life, pre-drug use.)
