The Mountain

  • Every day I'm just survivin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain
    Even when I feel like dyin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    Another night I'm barely holdin' on
    One step away from being dead and gone
    Am I alive to die another day?
    Is this life that I've been livin'
    All that's meant for me?

    Every day I'm just survivin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain
    Even when I feel like dyin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    Every time I think I'm over it
    I wake up in the bottom of it all again
    I'm still survivin', keep climbin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    The higher I go, the harder I fall
    So I don't look down, I don't look back at all
    And when I wish it all would turn to black
    I try to see the light and push the darkness back

    Every day I'm just survivin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain
    Even when I feel like dyin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    Every time I think I'm over it
    I wake up in the bottom of it all again
    I'm still survivin', I keep climbin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    So If I'm numb, already too far gone
    And If I feel a pulsin', I can carry on
    When I'm lost and wanna fade away
    I tell myself to live to die another day, yeah

    Every day I'm just survivin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain
    Even when I feel like dyin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain

    Every time I think I'm over it
    I wake up in the bottom of it all again
    I'm still alive and keep climbin'
    Keep climbin' the mountain, the mountain Writer/s: Neil Sanderson, Brad Walst, Barry Stock, Gavin Brown, Matt Walst, Johnny Andrews
