There is fire on the mountain,
And nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
And no one is'ah running.

I wake up in the morning...
Tell you what I see on my tv screen:
I see the blood of an innocent child,
And everybody's watching.

Now, I'm looking out of my window,
And what do I see?
I see an army of soldiers that're
Marching across the street, heh...

What did they say to make you so blind,
To your conscience and reason?
Could it be love for your country,
Or for the gun you use in killing? So...

There is fire on the mountain,
And nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
And no one is'ah running.

Heh, Mister Loverman!
Can I get a chance to talk to you?
'cause you are fooling with a dead man's corpse,
And you don't know what you do. Oh...

So little Lucy turns sixteen,
And like the movie she's been seeing,
She has a lover in her daddy.
She can't tell nobody...
'till she makes the evening news.

For there is fire on the mountain,
And nobody seems to be on the run.
Oh there is fire on the mountain top,
And no one is'ah running. Oh yes.

One day the river will overflow,
And there'll be nowhere for us to go
