Gold In The Mountain Of Our Mind- Flaming Lips By Sammy Gabs

They started up the hill

With their young lives exploding still

They loved to dream and run

They had the grass and the trees and the sun

They dreamed of the gold they’d find

At the top of the hill as they climbed

No one would ever doubt

Their spirit and strength could never run out


But the hill was steep and long

They never thought they’d be wrong

But it wasn’t a hill at all

It was a mountain a thousand feet tall

But with the gold in their thoughts

They used their young lust to climb and climb

And by the time they got to the peak

They were old and they were weak


Their was no gold that they could find

It was all just in their minds

They dreamed and they had run

They found the grass and the trees and the sun

Said what do we do now?

Spend the rest of our lives climbing back down

We can treasure what we find

And make it golden in our minds
