I'm a wheel, I'm a wheel,
I can roll, I can feel
(And) You can't stop me turning


'cause I'm the sun, I'm the sun,
I can move, I can run,
But you'll never stop me burning


Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again


I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain


I'm the day, I'm the day,
I can show you the way
And look, I'm right beside you


I'm the night, I'm the night,
I'm the dark in the light
With eyes that see inside you


Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again


I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain


Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
Someone's screaming my name
Come and make me holy again


I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain


Well, I can help you, you know I can,
I'm the man on the silver mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain


Just look at me and listen
I'm the man, the man, here go my hand
I'm the man on the silver mountain


Come down with fire
Lift my spirit higher
I'm the man on the mountain
I'm the man on the silver mountain

    My version.. First two paragraphs.. Talking about how the "man" which i the corrupt federal government and central banks can't hold him down or stop him.

    Chorus.. Asking god to make him strong and pure against the tainted or corrupt.

    Second verses.. He knows the truth about central banks, corruption, evil. And truth has more power over corruption.

    I'm the man on the silver mountain... I'm the man that has truth and god on my side to face the evil for when it comes.

    Thank you.

    Silver is a cleanser, or biblical meaning of redemption. Mountain a high place. The man on the silver mountain is separate from others. Holy means separate, to be separate for someone or for a cause. Someone is calling ronnie. His discription sounds like the lord jesus christ. After all he is the only one that can see inside the soul, and he is the only way to true holiness, which ronnie wants to be holy. Come down with fire also speaks of cleansing. Yet ronnie glorifies not jesus christ in his life or lyrics but the devil. Ronnie i believe has a twisted view on god and the devil. Just as albert pike believed that god was bad and lucifer was good. So i believe ronnie is praying for the devil to cleanse him, which is an impossiblity, since truthfully the devil is the father of evil not good. The devil is the great deceiver and leads men to hell not heaven.

    I'm a wheel. This is speaking of the rotation of our planet and souloursystem. You cant stop me turning is speaking in direct defiance against manknind who seeks to rock the human race. (you know like a rock that doesnt move or to be a rock and not to roll like the wheel) i can run is talking about the soulrsystems attempt to escape its own fate apparently caused by man (caused by man is from other songs he wrote) come down with fire lift my spirit higher is pointing to a new evolution that will separate humans into human beings and mankind. I'm the day, way right beside is talking about the 12 or 6 archetypes of jung we all possess and this is how we speak to the 'gods' or planets or the man on the silver mountain. The man is alluding to the mountain of lies designed to hide our inner light which is a real physical phenomena notable below the light spectrum. Very gnostic in origin. Anyone else out there accessing?

    P.s the line - i´m the dark in the light is wrong!
    The correct lyric is i´m the dark and the light

    My meaning is:
    the song is a prayer a conversation beween a human soul and god - god explains/reveals/describes himself
    and the human soul (whoever) asks him to " come down and to lift his spirit higer and make him holy again - revers to a sentence in moses where god commands - i am holy and so shall you be - someone obviously asking for a close relationship to god - a very touching song
