I went up on the medicine rock
So I could hear the silence talk
Danced beneath the ancient stars
Far from all of my petty wars
I could almost touch the sky
Felt the wind was stalking me
And I turned to face it

From my soul I sang out loud
Far away from the frantic crowd
The earth embraced me through my feet
Like there was a promise to keep
I could hear for miles around
The rising moon seemed to have a voice
And I heard it call

I went to the mountain
I never came down
I buried myself to pass away in the sacred ground

I burned my past away
I felt it all go
I was raised from the ashes of an obsolete and a cluttered ego

Felt the twilight erase the day
Into night and far away
Went up there a-hunting change
Fell upon me like a desert rain
Felt my old life slip away
Brought my past there to sacrifice
I'm already gone

I went to the mountain
I never came down
I buried myself to pass away in the sacred ground

I burned my past away
I felt it all go
I was raised from the ashes of an obsolete and a cluttered ego

I'm dead in the past
I live in the present
I have no need now to look away

I pull myself back from noisy distractions
Now I'm whole in the moment, in the quiet
And I hear the spirit

I went to the mountain
I never came down
I buried myself to pass away in the sacred ground

I burned my past away
I felt it all go
I was raised from the ashes of an obsolete and a cluttered ego

I went to the mountain
I never came down
I rose from the rubble, a child from a dead king's broken crown
