We were climbing the mountain, after so long | and the climb was long, too | You could say the mountain had been that way | for eras and dynasties | And the climbing was hard, dangerous, as it should be | But then the mountain began moving, and then | oh, I don’t know… |     | That morning, caught up in the reins | it took me a while to wake | You were sliding through my hands | it’s easy to do | and we came to the shore | later than we’d imagined we would | We were losing our footing | The myth was more stable than the truth | Though I felt exhausted | I knew I would sleep in the evening | There are all these uses for sleep | don’t you think? | It took an age | to recover from that bar-room brawl | and you knew | you’d never play piano again | Still, we chatted late into the night | politics is a good subject | but we never quite managed to fit | the means to the ends | There were too many claims, too many causes | Waiting for the burden | and waiting for wild horses
