Mountains O' Things Lyrics

The life I've always wanted
I guess I'll never have
I'll be working for someone else
Until I'm in my grave
I'll be dreaming of a life of ease
And mountains
Oh mountains o' things

To have a big expensive car
Drag my furs on the ground
And have a maid that I can tell
To bring my anything
Everyone will look at my with envy and greed
I'll revel in their attention
And mountains
Oh mountains o' things

Sweet lazy life
Champagne and caviar
I hope you'll come and find me
Cause you know who we are
Those who deserve the best in life
And know what money's worth
And those whose sole misfortune
Was having mountains o' nothings at birth

Oh they tell me
There's still time to save my soul
They tell me
Renounce all
Renounce all those material things you gained by
Exploiting other human beings

Consume more than you need
This is a dream
Make your pauper
Or make you queen
I won't die lonely
I'll have it all prearranged
A grave that's deep and wide enough
For me and all my mountains o' things

Oh they tell me
There's still time to save my soul
they tell me
renounce all
renounce all those material things you gained by
exploiting other human beings

Mostly I feel lonely
Good good people are
good people are only
My stepping stones
It's gonna take all my mountains o' things
To surround me
Keep all my enemies away
Keep my sadness and loneliness at bay

The life I've always wanted
I guess I'll never have
I'll be working for somebody else
until I'm in my grave
I'll be dreaming of a life at ease
and mountains
oh mountains o' things

I'll be dreaming
dreaming
dreaming...
