to the mountain and the mountain stands by me

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need
to the mountain and the mountain stands by me

When the Earth all around me is sinking sand
On Christ, the solid rock I stand
When I need a shelter, when I need
I GO TO THE ROCK
Writer Dottie RMBO

I go to the rock

Where do I go,
When there's nobody else to turn to
Who do I talk to,
When nobody wants
wept full sorrows
Tore her hair and wrung her hands
Till she met another sailor
Walkin' down by the Liverpool sands.

Why fair maid are you
of the ocean
Or a wave upon the sand
Or just a drop of water in her hand
A pebble or a broken shell
A rock upon the shore
I doubt if I could love her any
who had betrayed me.
Silent and unmovable,
I am not sorry
For I had hated the light.

Now I ride with the undead
Across the night-sky
And play by
The rocks crumble
Unto dust they die
Once hard stuff of mountains
Now soft powder among the sand
Who dares crush a rock
Oh rock, no rock
Reduced
vain against the wild and terrible wind.
In me so helpless, as dashed against the rock she met her end.

And the waves crashing around me, the sand slips
Well a love won't last the night 
If it's built on sand 
But when it's built on rock 
Ain't nothin' that it can't withstand 

I guess you know
Well a love won't last the night 
If it's built on sand 
But when it's built on rock 
Ain't nothin' that it can't withstand 

I guess you know
watched as he buried her in the sand
And then he climbed my tower, and off of the edge of me he ran 

[Chorus]

I am a lighthouse, worn by the weather
See me, feel me, come and touch me
The way I touch you
In the crossfire, live wire
Who said maybe
I said maybe won't do

The sands of time are
the haze

Ya who' Jumme gae bile ya heed
The Senorita said
I'll drag your lungs out through your nose
Space truckers free and high
Teamsters get you by
the haze

Ya who' Jumme gae bile ya heed
The Senorita said
I'll drag your lungs out through your nose
Space truckers free and high
Teamsters get you by
and burning sand
Led by the stars the ancient stream
The call of treasures yet unseen
So if we climb to the rocks of kings
Together we'll discover
and burning sand
Led by the stars the ancient stream
The call of treasures yet unseen
So if we climb to the rocks of kings
Together we'll discover
on the sand

Yeah, I'm sittin' pretty in Suntan City,
With a cold one in my hand

I gotta buddy who blew all his money,
And he had to stay his broke-ass home,
Who cares for me? Who cares for me? 

The picture frame spins round and round my face
I've lost the place I used to go all by myself
He stands
Sleeping sky
Winding walk
Breezing by
Ravaged rock
Swarming locust-land
Spiders spinning sand
Grubbing enterprise
No time to reply

Down,
sailing by,
And I feel like,
Growing fins and falling in,
With the bricks the bikes, the rusty tin
I swim around without a care,
I'm eating sand when I
goodnight, sleep tight 

Won't you play the music so the cradle can rock 
To a lullaby in ragtime 
Sleepy hands are creeping to the end of the clock 
Play
goodnight, sleep tight 

Won't you play the music so the cradle can rock 
To a lullaby in ragtime 
Sleepy hands are creeping to the end of the clock 
Play
And the ghosts of the sailors who died on the rocks
Feel not a twinch of regret
Though the wind may tangle the hair on your head
You sing like a siren to me
sailing by,
And I feel like,
Growing fins and falling in,
With the bricks the bikes, the rusty tin
I swim around without a care,
I'm eating sand when I
like ships across the sea
And some of them they've come on rocks, and some faced mutiny
And when they're sunken one by one I'll join that company
Old
