Be honest with yourself.
The world is not honest with you.
When you are honest with yourself
you find the road to inner peace.

well i won’t back down, no i won’t back down
you could stand me up at the gates of hell
but i won’t back down
gonna stand my ground, won’t be turned around
and i’ll keep this world from draggin’ me down
gonna stand my ground and i won’t back down

According to Buddha

Why be elated by material profit?” Father replied. “The one who pursues a goal of even-mindedness is neither jubilant with gain nor depressed by loss. He knows that man arrives penniless in this world, and departs without a single rupee.

by the sidewalk there with the cracks in it
with the mexican restaurant next to it
with the clothes for the big and the fat in it
and the moth ball smell to the hats in it
is the lonely little thrift store,
the hard luck little thrift store where i go

According to Buddha

One must never give up hope of becoming better. A person is old only when s/he refuses to make the effort to change. That stagnant state is the only “old age” I recognize.

here today the red sky tells his tale
but the only listening eyes are mine
there is peace amongst the hills
and the night will cover all my pride
blessed are they who smile from bodies free
seems to me like any other crowd
who are waiting to be saved

o amarelo da carris
vai da alfama à mouraria
quem diria
vai da baixa ao bairro alto
trepa à graça em sobressalto
sem saber geografia
o amarelo da carris
já teve um avô outrora
que era o xora?
teve um pai americano
foi inglês por muito ano
só é português agora

According to Buddha

If you want to be sad, no one in the world can make you happy. But if you make up your mind to be happy, no one and nothing on earth can take that happiness from you.

foi no domingo passado que passei
à casa onde vivia a mariquinhas
mas está tudo tão mudado
que não vi em nenhum lado
as tais janelas que tinham tabuinhas
do rés-do-chão ao telhado
não vi nada, nada, nada
que pudesse recordar-me a mariquinhas
e há um vidro pegado e azulado
onde via as tabuinhas

lisboa, lisboa
the sorrow of your days gone by
now the hinterland of lovers should lay
beneath all your vacant skies
lisboa, lisboa
from alama’s arms to lisbendade
paper lanterns, falling embers
quiet cantors sing of sandade
the ever twilight amber of your alleyways
paint the air of evening oh so well
and strolls about the river bank
suggests there’s history left to tell
aye lisboa
a paradise beside the sea

Turning a corner, I ran into an old acquaintance—one of those long-winded fellows whose conversational powers ignore time and embrace eternity.

there is fiction in the space between
the lines on your page of memories
write it down but it doesn’t mean
you’re not just telling stories
there is fiction in the space between
you and me
you and everybody
give us all what we need
give us one more sad sordid story
but in the fiction of the space between
sometimes a lie is the best thing
