I stood with a rugged brow.
Here my seat, my place, my home!
Not much o’ a sight to reckon with.
Me & my kind, we stood glances apart,
Since time immemorial.

Rusty nails!, thorny shrubs!
Unblinking glares! & deathly ridicules!
Defiled my restless soul.
Evil blood too! stained me deep
From the cup of Roman justice.

Then a day! like no other
Of great commotion & agitation;
A gentleman of finest purity,
Upon him the weight of the cosmos!
Cruelly on me was raised.

O how the wounds of love cried!
Not of pain, or anger or defeat.
An ocean of bleeding love flooded!
In which hopelessness drowned;
O how hopefulness vanquished!

How here I stood even taller!
And how love intoxicated.
How the heavens envied!
And how my kind wished
They were the Skull Mountain
