Lyrics

[Verse 1] I got nothin' to prove, I've got nothin' to sell I'm not buyin' what you've got, I ain't ringin' no bells I got a myth in my pocket, got a bullet in my teeth I'm goin' straight in the fire, I'm gonna talk to the high priest Used to be a lover, queen, and a drifter A cowboy devil, a bride in a box and A pilgrim and a thief, but it was me underneath I just know who I'm not, man, that's alright with me Alright, alright [Chorus] Can't tell me nothin', babe, and that's a fact I have been to the mountain and back Alright [Verse 2] Well, I wish I was God, but I'm glad that I'm not 'Cause I think too much, got my head in a knot The world's on fire, better save your brother I've been a child and I've been a mother I've been a victim and I've been a tumor Used to bе a waitress, but now I'm a consumer I've been on food stamps, I'vе been out of my mind I rolled in dirty dollars, stood in the welfare line [Chorus] I've been a number, I've been under attack I have been to the mountain and back Alright, alright [Verse 3] I've been a dancer, a saint, an assassin I've been a nobody, a truck-driver shaman So many seasons that I've been adrift Sometimes, I wonder if I even exist Do you ever walk down the street and do you think to yourself "Am I bein' watched, man? Am I on the list?" Well, I've been called every name in the book, honey Go on, take your best shot Take your best shot, take your best shot And I got my back turned, honey, aim at my heart Go on, take your best shot now [Verse 4] I am the hunter and I am the hunted I am a baby unwanted I'm an alchemist teacher, I'm a sinner, I'm a preacher [Bridge] And I know that there's out more here than this As I stare in the void of the black magic vacuum I know the scent of death like a perfume No, this ain't the end, this ain't the end This ain't the end, this ain't the end Oh, take off your tired eyes Undress your holy thighs 'cause [Refrain] I have been to the mountain I have been to the mountain I have been to the mountain I have been to the mountain and back Alright, alright [Chorus] Can't tell me nothin', babe, and that's a fact I have been to the mountain and back Alright Alright Alright
