I've Been to the Mountaintop

(Grunt M./Grunt M.)

In my dream, I've been there
Where the shadows of the past
Dwell in peace
Vainly I'm extending my hand
It's too far out of reach

And the choir of the mute was singing
Lullaby for the broken, unheard by most
Yet heard by the dreamers

Wafted on the breeze by force of thought
Tones like a caressing hand, they float
Slowly through the hall


In my dream, I've been there
Where the shadows of the past
Dwell in peace
Vainly I'm extending my hope
It's too far out of reach

A frameless, dim, hazed picture
Somehow lacking the slightest essence
Unearthly stairway

And the choir of the mute was singing
Lullaby for the broken, unheard by most
Yet heard by the dreamers

Wafted on the breeze by force of thought
Tones like a caressing hand, they float
Slowly through the hall


On the top I peeked behind the corner
And feeling the future's presence
On the top I peeked behind the corner
And I've seen the beauty

These walls I know too well
In this waiting room - world/hell
I'm changing the channel
No need to pass me the remote

I've been to the mountaintop
I've seen the beauty, I've really seen it
(I've seen the beauty)
And while falling down to the ground
I'm closing my eyes, to keep that image in my mind

If the man was meant to fly
He'd have been given wings
...If the man was meant to fly…

Then why are we gifted
With the burden of dreams
Then why are we gifted with the burden?

Come and take my hand
Through the paths unknown we shall go
Come and take my hand, you can fly



[SPOKEN: Martin Luther King, Jr., Mason Temple, 3.4.1968]

Well, I don't know what will happen now. We've got some difficult days ahead.
But it really doesn't matter with me now, because I've been to the mountaintop.

And I don't mind.

Like anybody, I would like to live a long life. Longevity has its place.
But I'm not concerned about that now. I just want to do God's will.
And He's allowed me to go up to the mountain.
And I've looked over. And I've seen the Promised Land. I may not get there with you.
But I want you to know tonight, that we, as a people, will get to the promised land!

And so I'm happy, tonight.

I'm not worried about anything. I'm not fearing any man!

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord!
