lyrics

I first saw him when I was eight,
an image now shrouded at the peak of my memory
but I remember the white.
A relentless blankness,
a numbness of colour
and I wondered how it came to be,
this face of indelible stone.
I was told, and I sighed, I realized

It was a rock with nowhere to go
A rock with nowhere to go
A rock with nowhere to go

And the bus moved on,
she announced over the microphone
that the mountain was always growing.
And his caves even more trenchant,
and I sit there contented,
that there is one stream

That knows her way
That knows her way
That knows her way
Into the deepest of his caves
