(Mad River Chant) - written while riding up the Mad River in VT


Straight up ahead
Is where you are going
Straight up ahead
Is all you need to know

Your legs may be dead
But your heart is still burning
Get out of your head
And into your bones

The fire is fed
The wheels the they are turning
The embers are red
And we are going home

Nowhere to go but up from here
Nowhere to go but up
Nowhere to go, we've lost all fear
Nowhere to go but up
