Grateful Dead - Fire on the Mountain (live) lyrics

Long distance runner, what you standing there for? Get up, get up, get out of the door You're playing cold music on the barroom floor Drowned in your laughter and dead to the core There's a dragon with matches that's loose on the town Take a whole pail of water just to cool him down Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Almost ablaze, still you don't feel the heat It takes all you got just to stay on the beat You say it's a living, we all gotta eat But you're here alone, there's no one to compete If mercy's a business, I wish it for you More than just ashes when your dreams come true Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Long distance runner, what you holding out for? Caught in slow motion in a dash for the door The flame from your stage has now spread to the floor You gave all you had, why you wanna give more? The more that you give, the more it will take To the thin line beyond which you really can't fake Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain Fire, fire on the mountain
