The Mountains Look Like Scotland

from by Pale Bird

lyrics

Yes I believe in atoms
I believe I’ve seen them with my own eyes
Through a silver window when I was just 25
In a darkened basement
My friends showed me a device
That drills down into the universe
And comes back with a prize

And everywhere I go
The mountains look like Scotland
The valleys look like Wales
The mountains look like Scotland

That was 15 years ago
And what I worry about now
Is whether people would treat me differently
Like I said I’d seen a ghost
Like I said I’d seen
The shadow of Jesus, the face of Elvis
On that silver screen

Everywhere I go
The mountains look like Scotland
The valleys look like Wales
The mountains look like Scotland

Everywhere I go
The mountains look like Scotland
The valleys look like Wales
The flat bits look England

I know the world changes, I’ll never see
The same mountain twice
Superimposed with the grey ghosts
Of the rest of my life
