Been To The Mountain Lyrics

I got nothin’ to prove, I’ve got nothin’ to sell
I’m not buyin’ what you’ve got, I ain’t ringin’ no bells
I got a myth in my pocket, got a bullet in my teeth
I’m goin’ straight in the fire, I’m gonna talk to the high priest
Used to be a lover, queen, and a drifter
A cowboy devil, a bride in a box and
A pilgrim and a thief, but it was me underneath
I just know who I’m not, man, that’s alright with me
Alright, alright

Can’t tell me nothin’, babe, and that’s a fact
I have been to the mountain and back
Alright

Well, I wish I was God, but I’m glad that I’m not
‘Cause I think too much, got my head in a knot
The world’s on fire, better save your brother
I’ve been a child and I’ve been a mother
I’ve been a victim and I’ve been a tumor
Used to bе a waitress, but now I’m a consumer
I’ve been on food stamps, I’vе been out of my mind
I rolled in dirty dollars, stood in the welfare line

I’ve been a number, I’ve been under attack
I have been to the mountain and back
Alright, alright

I’ve been a dancer, a saint, an assassin
I’ve been a nobody, a truck-driver shaman
So many seasons that I’ve been adrift
Sometimes, I wonder if I even exist

Do you ever walk down the street and do you think to yourself
“Am I bein’ watched, man? Am I on the list?”
Well, I’ve been called every name in the book, honey
Go on, take your best shot
Take your best shot, take your best shot
And I got my back turned, honey, aim at my heart
Go on, take your best shot now

I am the hunter and I am the hunted
I am a baby unwanted
I’m an alchemist teacher, I’m a sinner, I’m a preacher

And I know that there’s out more here than this
As I stare in the void of the black magic vacuum
I know the scent of death like a perfume
No, this ain’t the end, this ain’t the end
This ain’t the end, this ain’t the end
Oh, take off your tired eyes
Undress your holy thighs ’cause

I have been to the mountain
I have been to the mountain
I have been to the mountain
I have been to the mountain and back
Alright, alright

Can’t tell me nothin’, babe, and that’s a fact
I have been to the mountain and back
Alright
Alright
Alright
