THE NATIONAL lyrics : "Mansion On The Hill"

There's place out on the edge of town sir
Risin' above the factories and the fields
Now ever since I was a child

I can remember that mansion on the hill

In the day you can see the children playing

On the road that leads to those gates of hardened steel
Steel gates that completely surround the mansion on the hill

At night my daddy'd take me
and we'd ride through the streets of a town so silent and still
Park on a back road along the highway side

Look up at that mansion on the hill

In the summer all the lights would shine

there'd be music playin' people laughin' all the time
Me and my sister we'd hide out in the tall corn fields
Sit and listen to the mansion on the hill

Tonight down here in Linden Town
I watch the cars rushin' by home from the mill

There's a beautiful full moon rising
Above the mansion on the hill
