No Mountains

Standing in line, hypothetical freedom
I claim my blood as my fortune
But no statement of mine could ever define
The morning and its surprise:
Toxic air everywhere, short breathe suffocation
Dollar bills, automobiles; the center of attention

There's a pain in my head and it just won't go away
It'll take all my strength to ease the strain
There's a song in my head and it just won't go away
It'll take all my mind to stay away, take all my mind to stay away

'Cause there are no mountains here
No waterfalls to serenade the night
There are no mountains here
No elder trees to fill my dreams with light

Now you're feeling alone you think you're all on your own
Maybe someone should teach you that if your crippled inside
And always wear a disguise, somebody's bound to cheat you.
There's a feeling of pride 'bout ten miles wide
And East from where you're standing.
You know you should leave but you've been deceived
Now everybody's laughing

There are voices in my head getting louder everyday
Pleading me to stay awake
There is someone in my head to whom I just cannot relate
Would do no good to give him a name

'Cause there are no mountains here
It's race with time and the vehicle is Fear
There are no mountains here
It's school of life but the lesson isn't clear
