lyrics

Cause I need all this darkness so I know when it’s light,
I face my own death so I don’t forget to fight,
For every moment fleeting past me,
Every second I can be or not be,
Cause consciousness is a choice,
To silence that incessant voice,

Choose to be where you are,
Pull back thoughts from afar,
Fully see life and death, past and present and bow,
Brought to knee before the eternal naked now,

What can I do to find enlightened eyes,
Less than you can do to make the sun rise,
So what point is the practice you prescribe,
To make sure you’re awake when the sun hits the skies,

This insistent beauty,
Undeniable mystery,
Light in darkness,
Sound in silence,
Eternal this-ness,
Chosen existence,

I choose this paradox for my own,
I relax and fall back a stone,
Dropped in the eternal ocean,
Forever fading into endless motion,

I become a part of the flow,
Between the three, never any, but all, I know,

What can I do to find enlightened eyes,
Less than you can do to make the sun rise,
So what point is the practice you prescribe,
To make sure you’re awake when the sun hits the skies,
