lyrics

Michael take me to the mountain
where the air is clear and free.
I know the road and the obstruction.
We will avoid our enemies,
our enemies, our enemies.

Michael take me to the mountain.
We’ll leave behind these city streets.
I can no longer be around them.
Let’s go someplace where we can breathe.

Michael meet me in the garden
Underneath the laurel tree.
We’ll take our fill from the fountain
For it will be a long journey.

Michael meet me in the garden.
We’ll fill our carpetbags with fruit.
This kind of knowledge, it was hard won.
Shall we go looking for the truth?

Watch for the eagles in the sky.
They will lead us, be our guides.

Michael take me to the mountain.
In the hills, we may find gold.
We’ll make our offerings at the temple
And then we’ll give the bell a toll.

And the god and goddess deep inside,
Come out to guide us toward the light.

Michael take me to the mountain.
