Dinosaurs On The Mountain

Album: American Head (2020)
  • So tell me now

    So tell me now
    How'd it happen
    After the lava flows
    Maybe no one knows
    Now that it's burned off
    The scum of the Earth
    I wish the dinosaurs
    Were still here now
    Be fun to see them playing
    On the mountains

    Up on the mountain, they'd be all alone
    We can't just leave them on the side of the road
    You know they'll never make it on their own
    All alone, all alone

    Up on the mountain, that mountain's too high
    You can't just leave 'em there, you know that they will die
    They won't make it even if they try
    All alone, all alone, all alone

    Oh, I'm just wishing
    Oh, wishing
    Something else had happened
    All those years ago
    Things could have been so great
    But now I think it's too late
    To see them playing on the mountains

    Up on the mountain, they'd be all alone
    You can't just leave 'em on the side of the road
    You know they'll never make it on their own
    All alone, all alone

    Up on the mountain, that mountain's too high
    You can't just leave 'em there, you know that they will die
    They won't make it even if they try
    All alone, all alone, all alone Writer/s: Steven Gregory Drozd, Wayne Michael Coyne
