Track Name: The Lonely Mountain: Part 1
There aren't many visitors
Here on the mountain
This time of year

I carry a notebook
In my back pocket
In case there's anything
Worth jotting down
Notebooks filled with
Things worth jotting down

Maybe next season
Someone will come around
Track Name: The Lonely Mountain: Part 2
I have lost myself in the comfort
Of star and trees and graves
Of flowers and lights and more flowers
The Mountain is not a lonely tower
Track Name: The Lonely Mountain: Part 3
On Holy Lonely Mountain
There's a stream too small
To be called river

It carries to me fish
It brings to me such peace

I carve my words in stone
And will be outlived
By my language
Track Name: The Lonely Mountain: Part 4
The apple is not the garden
And Lonely is the Mountain
And it is not

Even with few visitors
I am confident that I have many friends

So fresh is the stream
I rejoice, "O Mighty River!"
But I'm not so foolish
As to be deceived

Years pass by with no company
The Mountain stands
Neither more, nor less Lonely
