Come climb a mountain made of sand
A glacial remnant on the land
Where flowers seldom grow
The wind forms patterns as it blows
And what we'll find up here, we're not sure we'll ever know

The hill is steep as we attack
Take two steps forward, slide one back
But when we reach the top
We'll see for miles and we'll be free
And I'll help you my friend
because I know that you'll help me

But the clouds obscure the sun
The shade creeps back the warmth is done
The wind is whipping now, the sand kicks up and rushes to my eyes

We move to get out of the storm
The clouds retreat and we feel warm
I think back to the East
To where we found ourselves as one
I feel it all inside, a smile commences all the fun

And does my soul feel temporary
In flesh and bones instead of light
Of this I contemplate as shadows shift, the day has turned to night
