lyrics

I'm going to the mountain top
I'm gonna see everything they got
Hear every sound
See every town I can

I got a bookshelf full of words
That no one has ever heard
And the TV screaming at me
Telling me how to be
But when I look around my town
It's nothing but a big old frown
It's not as simple as the people
On the TV make it out to be.

I met a man along the way
Who taught me how to pray
And a teacher teaching me
There's no god but you and me
And a father working hard
To keep the family farm
And a banker telling me
How to make a quick buck or two

I met a man way down south
With an elephant in his mouth
And a jackass to the north
That'll bore you to a snore
And a town up in the west
With a whole lot of socialists
And a bit of anarchy
In the big city
