To stand before it, in all its glory, to see its beauty above the clouds,
Will we make it? That’s another story, but it’s our duty at least to try,
To find a bold path, that takes us higher, far above vast and misty shrouds,
To face its cold wrath with inner fire, and then at last to touch the sky

Lost upon it, we feel no glory, a snowy wasteland within the clouds,
We brace the deep wrath, for how we tire, on our knees where eagles fly.


Where’s the steep path to take us higher, safe above these icy shrouds,
Can we make it, or end the story? Time for haste or time to die.

To stand upon it, in all our glory, to see this beauty, here on high,
To know we’ve done it, and tell our story, it was our duty to touch the sky
