lyrics

Impermanence is Perfection

My flesh knees in the deep, cold snow
The snow and I impermanent
Recycled here and evermore
a daydream that is without end

The binding contract has been signed
Embrace the struggle and the strife
Don't press against these factions of reality

Expose the darkness and the light
the white of snow against the night
return again down to your knees
Attention as bare as the trees

Experience the change, the release
Stop grasping at what you wish were true
Cease to hope for what could have been a reality

Employ yourself in the here and now
In the present, the moment is all we have
Surrender to imperfect permanence

Expose the darkness and the light
the white of snow against the night
return again down to your knees
attention as bare as the trees

Oh slave to your ears, freedom appears
Oh slave to your eyes, freedom arrives
Oh slave to your tongue, freedom is won
Oh slave to you our touch, slave to your touch, slave to your touch...

Expose the darkness and the light
the white of snow against the night
return again down to your knees
attention as bare as the trees

Learn to accept your thoughts and deeds
cast off the shackles of your Self
Make peace with struggle and with strife
BE, and then know of this release

Nothing lasts forever
