lyrics

Let's take the scenic route up to the mountain top.
Although it's miles away, no, we ain't gonna stop.

Grey eyes and dark skies
That's the price to pay to see the sunrise
8 wanderers with restless souls

Musician and a poet, writer and a preacher
Driver and a dancer, lumberjack and dreamer
All searching for the same thing

With former limb of tree in hand
No map or compass but a rough plan
They set off on foot for the hill
Singing

Let's take the scenic route up to the mountain top.
Although it's miles away, no, we ain't gonna stop.

Mossy stone walls and half a roof
A dirt floor trampled under hoof
They called it home for the morning

They unpacked the back-packed rucksack
And tighten the hammocks slack
While the flames ate their fill of feed

They kept their eyes on the horizon
Watchin' the dance of the sun
Together they stood, ready for the world

Let's take the scenic route up to the mountain top.
Although it's miles away, no, we ain't gonna stop.

They didn’t find what they were looking for on the top of the hill
But in their companions and the morning still
They found the Father in the midst of the clouds
For His love will always shine through the shroud

Let's take the scenic route up to the mountain top.
Although it's miles away, no, we ain't gonna stop.
Brothers and Sisters, here we go

Let's take the scenic route up to the mountain top.
