lyrics

Image of Existence

Come and be drowned, come and be drowned
Come and be drowned, come and be drowned

Come and let us wash away the image of existence
And no longer speak of ‘I’ and ‘we’

Come and let all those thoughts drift away
Forget both worlds and be silent

Come so we can shun the shame of knowing
Send those endless lines of learning from your head
Come so we can cast far away, all things that maybe said
And blind our eyes to all there is to see
We will be strangers to all and see mad in the eyes of rational man

Come and be drowned, come and be drowned
Come and be drowned, come and be drowned

Come and we will empty ourselves of self and leave behind
The shame of ‘I’ and ‘we’
Come and welcome un-fulfillment for we do not suppose
Our self’s desires to be the goal
Come but be aware of pain of knowing
Send those endless lines of learning from your head

Come so we can cast far away
All things that maybe said
And blind our eyes to all there is to see
We will be strangers to all
And see mad in the eyes of rational man

Come and be drowned in the ocean of unity
Free from all thoughts of union and separation
As this world is not even worth a grain of sand
Other than what is old and new
It is nothing, it is nothing
