I Am Mountain by Gungor

2 Comments

I’ve been listening to this song (along with the other cuts on the album) today.
As an album track I Am Mountain is at once a single song, and also part of an overall concept.
Some of the imagery in the lyrics is compelling about the spiritual reality which is innately joined to our physical beings.
Michael and Lisa Gungor share the lead vocals effortlessly.
There are some very different sounding songs on the album too.
Spaghetti Western guitar riffs and autotune vocals, among others, feature on various tracks.

I AM MOUNTAIN
(Michael Gungor / Lisa Gungor)

I am mountain, I am dust
Constellations made of us
There’s glory in the dirt
A universe within the sand
Eternity within a man

We are ocean, we are mist
Brilliant fools who wound and kiss
There’s beauty in the dirt
Wandering in skin and soul
Searching, longing for a home

As the light, light
Lights up the skies, up the skies
We will fight, fight
Fight for our lives, for our lives

I am mountain, I am dust
Constellations made of us
There’s mystery in the dirt
The metaphors are breaking down
We taste the wind and sight is sound

As the light, light
Lights up the skies, up the skies
We will fight, fight
Fight for our lives, for our lives
2x

Momentary carbon stories
From the ashes
Filled with holy ghost
Life is here now
Breathe it all in
Let it all go
You are earth and wind
