lyrics

I AM The Mountain

Old man had a window
But now it's bricked in
Used to sit by the window
Watch the spinifex roll in
All that's left is just a masa dem nada
They could've saved it
if they tried a bit harder
Even the fat cats are now
Thin on the ground
They shoulda listened to the Ibis
When they suddenly hit town
Al I'm hearing is I told you so's
I told you so
I told you so
Him seh yeah

I am the mountain and
I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me

There were cedars to horizon
Sun never hit the ground
There's no pop in the dirt now
No drop in the cloud
Feelin' abandon like a
Beaten-up boxer
They've fallen deaf
When opportunity knocksa
Would not know a good thing if it
Was half way up their ass
Here it comes now just
Step out of the way
And Let it pass
Misspelt graffiti bubblin'
Underneath my skin
Yeah we used to get along
But now the humour's wearing thin
All I'm hear in is I told you so's
I told you so
I told you so yeah yeah

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me

Hey hey they've run down the heroes
Who's gonna save us
From the danger as we sail
Over the edge of the wine-dark sea
Chase down the autograph of a zero
You know we're in trouble
When we're holding
The celebrity chef up
As someone to be
So take a photo of
Your plate of food
Put your neck out
You can feel the mood
The bottom 20 really ready
A sight so pretty
When they come to
Burn you city down

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
Climb over me

But don't you try to reason
Reason with the demons
In your mind
Let them run their course
They'll be gone in time

I am the mountain
And I am the sea
You can walk on the water
And climb over me
