lyrics

Like a lance that flashes free in the open sky
Cutting through the root of mortal grief
Such is the sudden victory over duality
Flashing freely in unconditioned state.

I’ve lain dead, utterly alone…

On the sands of ancient deserts.
I have held in my heart so many tears of stone.
I have dreamt of drinking dewdrops
That sparkle like galaxies.
I have longed to see you,
But did not know where to look.
Suddenly I gazed upon myself
And saw you smiling…

Like a lance that flashes bright in the open sky,
A decisive understanding of true Reality.
You are Me, and I am You.
You are here to bring me Joy, I am here to bring you Peace.

The rhythm of my heart is the Birth and Death of all that is.

I have longed to see you,
But did not know where to look.
Suddenly I gazed upon myself
And saw you smiling at me…

Tonight all weapons fall and turn to dust,
Rust devours iron, as iron breeds rust.
