lyrics

He was only 12 years old
I'd met him once before
Casing 'round this big old joint
On the other side of town
When they reopened up the case
They found he was the one
He killed a man for 20 dollars
And he fled the town so long

Just like in the older days
Dark medicine decays
Shooting up in poison veins
The bad times start to fade
Now those days have come and gone
A Revolution in our head
Taking pills to numb the pain
One was white and the other red

Goin' up on the hillside
Gonna make some plans
While we're getting high
Right up on these mountains
We can reach the sky
Goin’ up on the hillside
Gonna see some friends
On the other side
Right up on these mountains
We can disappear... into the light

Treated you like tainted gold
An ornament on the shelf
A parasite in awkward light
In a makeshift iron cell
All around this dirty town
The people never speak
Of Old Man Brown or that crazy clown
Or the mountain at its peak

Goin' up on the hillside
Gonna make some plans
While we're getting high
Right up on these mountains
We can reach the sky
Goin’ up on the hillside
Gonna see some friends
On the other side
Right up on these mountains
We can disappear... into the light
