i was walking with the dead
when he walked into my life
a kind of Master Zen
his eyes were clear and spirited
I was listening long before
there were words...
deep behind the hologram
Is a mystery, a silent thoughtless gap
I know you've been afraid of that
but now the tides aren't holding back
The surging of an ocean inside
it's so easy
to follow the hounds
of reason and "logical thought"
I'm tired of the chase
never still, unfulfilled
i just wanna feel whole
standing at the water's edge
i cried: I don't even know myself!
and all I thought I knew is lost.
the Master answers with a smile
he turns and he answers
"is that so?"
i'm giving up
yes i'm giving in
