I propose to climb Mount Normal
My expedition needs supply
And fortune smiles upon the fool who gives at least a try
And in the quest to take Mount Normal, I've no sherpa for a guide
It's the kind of trek that feels it's way as I sacrifice my pride
And deign to dare to risk rejection from what I don't know how to fake
So much that I would give to this
And I don't know what to take
And I am scaling up Mount Normal and I get higher every day
And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray that I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy
Well I am halfway up Mount Normal
From here at least it looks that way
Because I notice in the newer eyes a fear I lack today
And it occurred to me this summit is something everybody seeks
We're so aware the precipice while we dream about the peaks
And I am scaling up Mount Normal and I get higher every day
And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray that I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy

And I'll chip at the icy obstacles until this mountain is secure
Then I will realize and find my way, at least I'm reasonably sure
When I am high atop Mount Normal, I'll finally forgive the past
And feel at once that I belonged to normalcy at last
And I am high atop Mount Normal and I get higher every day
And I dream to be somebody else
And every night I pray that I will stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if I grasp
And cling to normalcy
And we are scaling up Mount Normal and we get higher every day
And we dream to be somebody else
And every night we pray someday we'll stand atop Mount Normal
Proudly survey the land and sea
And have happy endings if we grasp
And cling to normalcy
