This one's influenced by things Krishnamurti said.


You are learning from now till the day when you die
Understand who you are, and you won't have to ask why
Don't be afraid of your fear, the key's in your hand
Just be your Self for the truth is a pathless land

Listen to the meaning, not the words
Don't rush to learn the names of all the birds
Time's an illusion
It's the space you leave between your thoughts and deeds
You struggle with your thoughts but there's no need
It's an internal fusiona

All roads lead to God, the god of the Self
Which all of us share, it's a true common wealth
And there's no need for effort, because effort distracts
You just need to know that to see is to act

All philosophies
All ideologies
All idiotic and crass
Be at peace with your being
Be at peace with your self
And just lay in the sun on the grass
Because to see is to act


from The Tears Of Xerxes, released September 30, 2013
