Nature Will Treat Me as Nature Does
When Peter Di Girolamo climbs a California mountain and faces a lightning storm, he experiences an unexpected side of Mother Nature.

 
I lived in California for a year,
But I hadn’t been up the peaks.
It hadn’t rained much at all.
I decided I’d take my sleeping bag
And climb one of those mountains.
I didn’t take water or food with me.
 
Nature will treat me as nature does.
Nature will treat me as nature does.
 
The farther up you get and it’s just rock,
But I got right to the peak,
Up 10,000 feet.
I’m looking out into the sky.
I could see one raincloud.
Must be half a mile wide.
 
Nature will treat me as nature does.
Nature will treat me as nature does.
 
It felt like something crawling in my hair,
My hair was standing up,
Reaching up to the cloud.
I thought I better get out of here,
Might get struck by lightning,
Don’t wanna be a lightning rod.
 
Nature will treat me as nature does.
Nature will treat me as nature does.
