  1. Mountain of Stuff

From the recording Black & Gold

(written by Lynda Kay Parker)

Lyrics

My burden is this mountain of stuff
I wonder if I'll ever have enough?
I pack it in my sack
And I carry it upon my back
My burden is this mountain of stuff

I walk along these sidewalks everyday
All the people turn and look away
My face is filled with shame
And they don't even know my name
My burden is this mountain of stuff

And I cry every night
For no matter how I try
I cannot find my peace of mind
When all the time I carry
This mountain of stuff
This mountain of stuff

I'm tired and I need a place to sleep
And a pair of shoes to fit my feet
If I could just lie down
Someplace other than the cold hard ground
I'd leave behind this mountain of stuff

Every morning I look to the sky
And wonder if today's the day I'll die
If I could make it to the tracks
I'd leave and never ever ever look back
And walk away from this mountain of stuff

But I cry every night
For no matter how I try
I cannot find my peace of mind
When all the time I carry
This mountain of stuff
This mountain of stuff

This mountain of stuff
Mountain of stuff
Never enough
Mountain of stuff
