Track 1 of 12 from "Gretchen Goes To Nebraska", the second album by heavy metal/hard rock trio King's X. It is a concept album, based around a short story written by drummer Jerry Gaskill.
It is often considered to be one of their best albums.
The album's first track is named after the title of the band's debut album. The songs "Over My Head" and "Summerland" had promotional music videos. The album's cover artwork is seen at the end of the latter video.
King's X is an American hard rock band that combines progressive metal, funk and soul with vocal arrangements influenced by gospel, blues, and British Invasion pop groups. The band's lyrics are largely based on the members' struggles with religion and self-acceptance.
Since being signed to Megaforce Records in 1987, King's X has released twelve studio albums, one official live album, and several independent releases. The band is currently recording for the InsideOut Music label, and continues to tour with each new release. Early in their major label career, they had many opening slots on arena tours, but lately the band, for the most part, headline their own shows playing mostly clubs and smaller venues.
Each member of the group has recorded solo albums and has made numerous guest appearances on other artists' albums and compilation projects. Doug Pinnick and Ty Tabor also have albums released with side bands that they participate in.
Despite the band members having varying degrees of Christian beliefs through the years and the group having had early dealings in the Contemporary Christian market, the members of King's X have never considered themselves a "Christian" band. However, some of their early lyrical themes (especially the first three albums) have led to some people labeling the group as such, which all three members strongly oppose.

Doug Pinnick--bass, lead & backing vocals (1980--present)
Ty Tabor--lead guitar, backing & lead vocals (1980--present)

mountains robed in glory
coming into view
son becomes the story
essence of all true
i saw what cannot be seen
she spoke to me
take what you've learned set it free
see what you'll see
ah flowing power waterfall of wisdom
flawless bold commands
masterpiece written o'er the vision by the perfect man
living martyr truer than the seasons
no more place for lies
cast a seed push aside the reason
reign of terror dies
