LYRICS

Foals “Mountain At My Gates” Lyrics

I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
What I give, it takes away
Whether I go or when I stay

I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
I see a fire out by the lake
I’ll drive my car without the brakes

I see a mountain in my way
It’s looming larger by the day
I see a darkness in my fate
I’ll drive my car without the brakes

Oh, gimme some time
Show me the foothold from which I can climb
Yeah, when I feel low
You show me a signpost for where I should go

I see a mountain at my gates
I see it more and more each day
And my desire wears a dark dress
But each day, I see you less

Oh, gimme some time
Show me the foothold from which I can climb
Yeah, when I feel low
You show me a signpost for where I should go

Through lanes and stone rows
Black granite, wind blows
Fire lake and far flame
Go now but come again
Dark clouds gather ’round
Will I run or stand my ground?

Oh, when I come to climb
Show me the mountain so far behind
Yeah, it’s farther away
Its shadow gets smaller day after day

Yeah, gimme my way
Gimme my love
Gimme my choice
You keep me coming around
Gimme my fate
Gimme my lungs
Gimme my voice
You keep me coming around
Gimme my lungs
Gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my
Gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my, gimme my way
Gimme my fate
Gimme my lungs
Gimme my choice
You keep me coming round

Behind-The-Scenes with Foals and GoPro

The video is an awesome ocular experience. Shot using GoPro’s spherical, virtual reality technology, the viewer floats toward a city before being thrust into a maneuverable environment. Arrows on the screen and the AWSD keys allow the viewer to rotate in any direction within the snow globe-style atmosphere.

The videos are new examples of musicians riding the cutting edge of interactivity. Bob Dylan’s 2013 video of “Like a Rolling Stone” and Jack White’s “That Black Bat Licorice” from earlier this year are other examples of artists’ testing the interactive media.

Previously Foals shared the album’s title track with an accompanying music video, “What Went Down.”

Pick up What Went Down on Amazon (Vinyl, CD, MP3).
