Ozzy Osbourne – Over The Mountain lyrics

Over the mountain take me across the sky
Something in my vision, something deep inside
Where did I wander, where d'ya think I wandered to
I've seen life's magic astral plane I travel through.
I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how.
Over and over always tried to get away
Living in a daydream only place I had to stay
Fever of a breakout burning in me miles wide
People around me talking to the walls inside
I heard them tell me that this land of dreams was now
I told them I had ridden shooting stars
And said I'd show them how.
Don't need no astrology it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to ride with me - I'm free.
Over and under in between the ups and downs
My mind's carpet magic ride goes round and round.
Over the mountain kissing silver inlaid clouds
Watching my body disappear into the crowd.
Don't need no astrology it's inside of you and me
You don't need a ticket to ride with me - I'm free.

    I think that "Over the Mountain" is a metaphor for transitioning to the afterlife, or an out-of-body experience. The "land of dreams was now" could very well be a reference to the afterlife. Riding shooting stars and traveling through an astral plane also seem indicative of some journey of the soul.
    Until just now, I always thought that the "Watching my body disappear into the crowd." was disappear into the "GROUND" which would pretty much wrap it up as a "life after death" meaning. Surely if you're "watching your body" your consciousness is elsewhere. I still lean toward the life after death idea.
    Regardless, it's an awesome song with some cool lyrics.
