Up On the Mountain

Remastered from 4 track circa 1987. The backing track was shoved into one track (drum machine, casio CZ-101 synthesizer bass, rythmn guitar) - the vocals are buried because I wrote a song that was way way too high for my range. The backwards-ness is done the obvious ways - flip the cassette over and play along with the track backwards.

Up on the Mountian

I see you up on mountian
and I wonder how you got up there

I feel myself standing on soft ground
I feel it moving under my feet
I feel myself sinking on down
I feel I have lost the peak!

I see you up on the mountian
I wonder how you got up there
I don’t understand the reason
I feel that its gone in thin air!

I see the tide is turning
I guess maybe its something you don’t know
I feel that my mind is burning
each heartbeat and here comes the smell!

I don’t understand it!

I don’t understand the mountian
how did you get up there?
I don’t understand the mountian
how did you get up there!

I feel the tide is turning now….

I’m up on the mountian
looking down up on the earth
I’m up on the mountian
this Land that gave me birth!

I missed this one Chris. A really great rock song. The backing is punchy, solid and I think, right up there.
