Up on the hillside you can see the cross shine 
Out in the alley hear the hungry dog whine 
You and I, friend, sit waiting for a sign 
See how the sunset makes the lake look like wine 
Over the mountain I can hear myself called 
I want to come running but my window's too small 
The cliffs are so high and I might fall 
What were you saying? -- oh, it's nothing at all 
Yes, the world's in convulsions and the weather is fine 
Buicks get bigger and five cents costs a dime 
I must get going, you know, there's not much time T
he road is waiting and I'm running out of rhyme 
Up on the hillside, see how the cross does shine
