lyrics

MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS
-----------------------

southern sun of midnight pours it’s
reddish rays upon white snow
blueish ice and water lanes
black bits of exposed granite slope
great barren peaks of mystery
cryptic world of frozen death

puffs of smoke from erebus
the lavas that restlessly roll
their sulphurous currents down yaanek
in the ultimate climes of the pole -
outpost of the great unknown
cryptic land of frozen death

headlong through the biting cold
to fathom secrets aeons old
a burning curiosity
dares glaciated mystery

the doubts and horrors around us
we shall never reveal
transcent the loss of reason
with sheer scientific zeal
deep in the mountains of madness
the outer reaches of mind
is where i chose to be
is where i can see me

to wonder what is at the core
our little flames are burning for

the mountains stand as kingdoms fall
there are no answers none at all

would to the heavens we'd run back
before we'd seen what we did see
before our minds were burned
when we could easily breathe
beyond in the mountains of madness
theres something else, you see
a cauldron so vast
an abyss so deep

pylons of a frightful gateway into forbidden spheres of dream
complex gulfs of remote time, space, and ultra-dimensionality
we’re rolling in the wind across the endless leagues of frozen plateau
