Lyrics

meteoric bodies fallin down each night
old woman meteorite
meteoric bodies fallin down each night
old woman meteorite

ferritic spirit, massive, pitted, and old
beyond comprehension

found you in the mountain
found you in the mountain
found you in the mountain
old woman mountain

old woman mountain
old woman mountain
old woman mountain
old woman mountain

tonight the biggest meteorite
i have ever seen
crashin down over cadiz town
big as a fire in a jumbo jet

big as a fire in a jumbo jet
big as a fire in a jumbo jet
big as a fire in a jumbo jet
big as a fire in a jumbo jet

take away this summer night
take away this summer night
take away this summer night
take away this summer night

take away five hundred million summer nights

warm shallow waters of cambrian time
heavin and churnin with primitive life
extravagant creatures with too many legs
shells and tentacles, eyes on sticks
broken pieces fallin like snow
layer upon layer they bury you deeper
bury you under a blanket of lime
asleep in the bedrock, mute and blind

found you in the mountain
found you in the mountain
found you in the mountain
old woman mountain

meteoric bodies falling down each night
old woman meteorite
meteoric bodies falling down each night
old woman meteorite

old woman meteorite
