  • I'm a wheel,I'm a wheel
    I can roll,I can feel
    And you can't stop me turning
    Cause I'm the sun,I'm the sun
    I can move,I can run
    But you'll never stop me burning
    Come down with fire
    Lift my spirit higher
    Someone's screaming my name
    Come and make me holy again

    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the day,I'm the day
    I can show you the way
    And look I'm right beside you
    I'm the night,I'm the night
    I'm the dark and the light
    With eyes that see inside you
    Come down with fire
    Lift my spirit higher
    Someone's screaming my name
    Come and make me holy again

    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    Come down with fire
    Lift my spirit higher
    Someone's screaming my name
    Come and make me holy again

    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    Just look at me and listen
    I'm the man,the man,give you my hand
    Come down with fire
    Lift your spirit higher
    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the man on the silver mountain
    I'm the night and the light
    I'm the black and the white
