Sangtekst

There's smoke up on the mountain
There's fire in the bush
There's blood up on the fountain
Skin is pale behind the rouge

Climbin' downhills with tablets of stone
Skin still burnin' I walk alone
Below waves of laughter and song
Keep on wonderin' what's goin' on

Darkness permeats the air
Head’s dizzy from presence upstair
Down in the crowd sparklin' glints of gold
Out in the desert are souls to be sold

Veilin' my face approachin' the camp
Moisture reeks from bodies so damp
They sing and dance around a golden calf
Splitting the tablets and hearts in half

mountain of fire
desert of cold
we stumble across
while bones growin'old

There's smoke up on the mountain
There's fire in the bush
There's blood up on the fountain
Skin is pale behind the rouge

The dancin' cost us some forty years
Dryin' out in blood, sweat and tears
Beggin' for mercy in another land
Where crosses are raised by another man

crowds of liars
walkin' so bold
we mourn our loss
while hopes are growin' old

Mountain of Fire
Desert of Cold
