We don't wanna rock the boat But we're living all kind of ways What did they do before the soap Before they came up with the holidays Oh, it makes me wanna holla holla Look at stars or something We're so lethargic It shouldn't make sense So, I'm agnostic I lost my patience For the commentary Call me atheist  I wanna party I wanna celebrate What you know, I know And I know I don't know See, what we know don't mean a thing If we don't know our heart Let's get back to our start That's the hardest part I'm a mortal man Just a mortal man Sunshine on your face Beauty so intricate I see your infinite power This time can't be replaced So, I will enter it This is our intimate hour.

Why is everything so black and white? With enough peace and love We won't have to fight Aren't you tired of having nightmares? Cause I'm weary I say, let's sleep when we're dead At least in theory Man, I'm serious And I'm curious to know If I go Would you go with me? Raindrops, the raindrops, they fall all on my head Raindrops to teardrops, I swear that's why I'm red Teardrops for fear cops will use what I have said Will you conspire with a liar? I'm not that bad though People get tired of going through backdoors Just to get served Won't you look at the nerve? (Dot Dot Dot Dot) Door of no return (Dot Dot Dot Dot) Working hard without the earnings (Dot Dot Dot Dot) Praise our God or burn (Dot Dot Dot Dot) Will we ever learn? I doubt it But me and you don't have to subjugate ourselves to this No more No more Come on We gotta get out We gotta get out of here.

I know this chick named Sallie I met her on the scene I thought she was so caring But she was a groupie Frontin, cause I can't afford her services That I didn't intend on No, I didn't intend on Being a fiend But now, I'm clean Cataract gone, yeah, now I see Cadillac zone in all my dreams But she stay phonin me Moanin Talking bout how I'm owin And it keep growin She think she controllin me But before I hang up Well, I tell her, Yeah, I tell her this here I'm a be a star one day These days, I sit here and try to decide If I should go back to 9 to 5 Won't you come rescue me Free me from industry You've seen all my tweets Music is the same beast Music is the same Don't let me go insane They say I'm better for it But I don't wanna play this game No more Don't you ever question my love.

Yeah Come on Shoot for the stars You'll land on a cloud Don't let em tell you who you are Because it's up to you See, people can't name every star When they look up And they say, that's where we'll go They say, trust me, I know But I was born in Missouri Where we have a history Of setting out on journeys to unknowns And even they have told me They didn't show me And every man's journey is his own Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Everything you want, man, you can get it You just gotta apply yourself Everything you want, man, you can get it Why don't you try yourself? Everything I dreamed came to fruition Gave up on wishing And started doing Made a decision I gotta shoot it Like number 3 A.I. is me Siddhārtha was 29 He found it at 35 So I got time Least I think I got time Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Nam Myoho Renge Kyo Nam Myoho Renge Kyo.

about

I was born on August 7th, 1984 and have now reached the exact age where Siddhārtha Gautama aka The Buddha found his enlightenment (35 years and 8 months). While I am uncertain I have found it, these songs aim to describe my journey along the Noble Eightfold Path. May these vibes help light your way.
