DThere is a mystic in the mountain, high above the great salt lake
Dancing in the heavens, far below his golden gates
G D G DHe's looking at our cars below, laughing at our rock and roll
DSo I found a little woman, thought that I could change her name
She had the colour of the city and the fire of the country flame
G D G Bm A D So I hid my body down below, hoping that my skin wont show
DMystic from the mountain, in the end what did you say wed find
A promise from a pamphlet, a crucifixion on your highway sign
G D G Bm A But I sold you for a cigarette, does it make you want to love me less
Bm G A DAnd if I dont believe. What does that mean?
Bm G A D And when I die alone, who will eat my soul
G D G DIn the cave of God, while the angels watch
G D Bm A DTheres a manic scream, hallelujah
Babe I know I lost you, moment you could finally see The part of me Id hidden, far below our leather seats If I could make you understand the empty that I tried fill Id crucify my body, leave the pieces at your mystics heels But I sold you for a cigarette I hope youd sell me off for less And if we dont agree What does that leave And when you die alone I will eat your soul In the cave of God While the angels watch Theres a manic scream hallelujah Tabbed by Floor Demon
