Here we go now

No one here can show you where it is but I can point to a sign
On the roof of the world without apparent design
The frozen definition of a lunatic ambition to rise
The air is thin, the future is dim, dimension hard to find

Up on a mountain encased in solar rays
Beyond the electric dreams of inarticulate passion plays
Coming down a mountain, eons have a human ring
The conversation of impassive planets
Intercepted by a human being

Ratiocination is a practicable way to derive
An attitude of altitude and probity by which to abide
Or maybe a theophany of flaming creosote in disguise
The air is thin, the future is dim, dimension undefined

Up on a mountain encased in solar rays
Beyond the electric dreams of inarticulate passion plays
Coming down a mountain, eons have a human ring
The conversation of impassive planets
Intercepted by a human being

Here glaring cold in the crystalline geometry of night
Obscuring form and tracing faceless fears
Of a super human immensity in a patch of sand
Or a raptors guileless shivering intensity
I'm only a visitor, an atom of atoms
On a jutting red splattered synagogue of granite
As it crouches literally in space
A frozen amoral giant lizard, gazing heavenward forever

Let's go where the raptor goes to the mountain in a cosmic glow
We'll have a genuine terrestrial show on a mountain, on a mountain
Let's scan the horizon clean for any trace of human schemes
And try to touch upon immortal themes on a mountain, on a mountain

Coming down a mountain, eons have a human ring
Let's go where the raptor goes to the mountain in a cosmic glow
The conversation of impassive planets
We'll have a genuine terrestrial show
Intercepted by a human being
On a mountain, on a mountain
Up on a mountain encased in solar rays
Let's scan the horizon clean for any trace of human schemes
Beyond the electric dreams on a mountain, on a mountain
And try to touch upon immortal themes on a mountain, on a mountain

Coming down a mountain, beyond the electric dreams
Let's go where the raptor goes to the mountain in a cosmic glow
The conversation of impassive planets
We'll have a genuine terrestrial show
On a mountain, on a mountain
Up on a mountain encased in solar rays
Let's scan the horizon clean for any trace of human schemes
Beyond the electric dreams on a mountain, on a mountain
And try to touch upon immortal themes on a mountain, on a mountain

Coming down a mountain, beyond the electric dreams
Let's go where the raptor goes to the mountain in a cosmic glow
The conversation of impassive planets
We'll have a genuine terrestrial show
On a mountain
