  • The message of the song is that everyone views things differently and is entitled to their own opinion.
  • Despite the title, there are only two uses of the word "mountain" in this song: the opening lyric "Coming down the mountain," and in the second verse, which starts, "I was coming down the mountain."

  • Dan from New York, NyActually, the word "mountain" is repeated in the second verse... "I was coming down the mountain, I met a child man she had pin eyes..." -thanks, Dan
  • Willie from Scottsdale, Az"pin eyes" is stoner slang for very small pupils, often encountered during heroin use when the eyes try and limit the light let into the brain. Also, going up and coming down "the mountain" is user slang for getting on a binge, and coming off one. The word is actually used twice in the song, not just in the opening line.
