According to Buddha

Life has a bright side and a dark side, for the world of relativity is composed of light and shadows. If you permit your thoughts to dwell on evil, you yourself will become ugly. Look only for the good in everything so you absorb the quality of beauty.

twenty-five years ago they spoke out and they broke out
of recession and oppression and together they toked
and they folked out with guitars around a bonfire
just singin’ and clappin’ man what the hell happened
then some were spellbound some were hellbound
some they fell down and some got back up and
fought back ‘gainst the melt down
and their kids were hippie chicks all hypocrites
because fashion is smashin’ the true meaning of it
you might as well be walkin’ on the sun
you might as well be walkin’ on the sun

According to Buddha

Strive ceaselessly; never be impatient. Once the finality is achieved, incarnation of troubles will be over in a second, just as when light is admitted within a room that has been locked for decades, the darkness vanishes instantly.

i was working up a conversation
but i didn’t know how to start
your heart is a work of art
i wanna be rich in memories not money
our love is our inheritance honey
we’ve come so far

According to Buddha

The relationship that exists between friends is the grandest of human loves. Friendly love is pure, because it is without compulsion. If you once know divine love, you will never part with it, for there is nothing else like it in the whole universe.

i’m out on the street walking home
a small pale blur
leaving trails like a snail
i move so slow
time can bruise
violent indigo
rush home to your arms
you soothe my weary soul
others stray but i won’t
walk away
walk away

According to Buddha

Am I the ocean? It is too small, A dream dewdrop on the azure blades of space. Am I the sky? It is too small, A lake in the bosom of eternity. Am I eternity? It is too small, Framed in a name. In the vast region of namelessness I love to dwell, Beyond limits of dreams, names, conceptions. I am what I am always — In the ever-present past, In the ever-present future, In the ever-present now.

here’s what we know
we don’t know what we’ve got or if we’ve got it
and what we had, we already forgot it
the race is evidently to the bottom
we don’t, we don’t, we don’t know what to say
don’t know what it was but we want it back

According to Buddha

I enjoy everything, but I have no desire for anything, so there is never any pain or disappointment from unfulfillment. Whatever I do, wherever I go, I enjoy myself.

i been looking at the stars tonight
and i think oh, how i miss that bright sun
i’ll be a dreamer ’til the day i die
but they say oh, how the good die young
but we’re all strange
and maybe we don’t wanna change

and i don’t want a never ending life
i just want to be alive while i’m here
and i don’t want to see another night
lost inside a lonely life while i’m here

i got guns in my head and they won’t go
spirits in my head and they won’t go
but the gun still rattles
the gun still rattles, oh

we are not alone
and we are more alone
so hurry up and lose me
hurry up and find me
again
so i’ll pass
the lumber mills
i’ll pass the coal mines
and the parks
and the dried up oil fields
i’ll pass a thousand lonely pines
that bend their backs against the sun

once i was seven years old, my mama told me,
“go make yourself some friends or you’ll be lonely.”
once i was seven years old
it was a big big world, but we thought we were bigger
pushing each other to the limits, we were learning quicker

According to Buddha

However deep your
Knowledge of the scriptures,
It is no more than a strand of hair
In the vastness of space;
However important appears
Your worldly experience,
It is but a drop of water in a deep ravine.

all i can say is that my life is pretty plain
i like watchin’ the puddles gather rain
and all i can do is just pour some tea for two
and speak my point of view but it’s not sane, it’s not sane

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
