Mountain

Bunny slippers
sure we’ll take them
but offerings won’t alter this
do you understand
sure it matters if you are really
Superfly’s secret wife

she’ll be down
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spits you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spits you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
so the city spit you, spit you out, rejected
kiss the brave men that you thought had you protected

see the city, city, city, now
see the city, see the city now, rejected
kiss the pavement that you thought had you protected
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go her way
she’ll be down when the mountain lets her go

Here to return
to return
to return
to return
to you
to you
to you
you
