lyrics

Atop the mountain with the sunrise
It seems all the light has darkened my eyes
I sit and gaze, I drag my brush
I can't make the view any more lush

I've always wanted to earn my seat
among the valleys and fields beneath
I stare at the scenes that you might admire
there is no role of me thats required

I watch the trees,
I sift the sand
They look like pictures
I held in my hands
but I can't grasp them
I can't understand
whats my place
in this undeserved land?

I've come down the mountain a different man.
Have my eyes dimmed like Abraham's?
Where is my joy? Haven't I won?
I lost a ram In place of my son

I watch the trees,
I sift the sand
They look like pictures
I held in my hands
but I can't grasp them
I can't understand
whats my place
in this undeserved land?
