The Unreal Never Lived tracks

Lyrics


[Quantum Mystic]

Teacher of endless grace was born in India
A modest shopkeeper living in the seat of Bombay
He raised a family, a common, simple life
until he met his master and through grace opened eternal eyes.

(chorus)
Spirit opened wide
heart held in his hands
Quantum Mystic arise

Without education his grasp of truth was deep
a fearless lion
delivering souls from ageless sleep
though he lived in poverty
his wealth was limitless
past and future abandoned
to eternal living presence

(chorus)

His message to this world
still resounds for all time
the unreal never lived
and the real does not ever die
beyond all birth and death
the real is timeless
open the shutter of the mind
and it will be flooded with light

(chorus)





[Grasping Air]

Entwine with despair like a lover
bleak obsession take its toll
burnt souls in the wake
embers at stake
the cycle internal unfolds

ancient wounds fester and bleed
empty food from which they feed
sustain the wealth subliminate
the self
create the suffering we need

(chorus)
slow crawl
timeless call
watch it burn down burn down
the egos fall
nothing lasts forever
grasping air
peace lives in the space where
no one is there

rigid dogma breeds disease born from needing to believe
there is a reason for all this pain
fear of life creates the stain

(chorus)

darkness and light
shadows call
colors and sight
blind us all
each moment a brand new day
each life is all
don't believe your eyes





[Kosmos]

Insight into the one sublime magnified
unspoken sacred oath the universe in all life
dawn of the rising sun burning the timeless
living equilibrium of the Kosmos

(chorus)
clear light-personified divine-clear light-no thing is denied expansion-pervading the void-Kosmos-vast eternal sky

atoms vibrate
the chanting begins
hymns to the funeral pyre
give birth to tommorow's dead
subsonic sage drones reach to the stars
with ancient insights into the Kosmos

(chorus)

oh mani padme hum
oh mani padme hum
oh mani padme hum
each thought creation's dawn
each breath one with the all
hearts pulsate with the mantra
vibrant in the Kosmos

faith of fear
empire of old
fear in disguise
seething false power
the empire withers and falls
the world revealed
to be in the mind
to be in the mind

personified divine
the dreamer sleeps no more
no thing is denied
the whole drama is witnessed
diverse in the void
the Kosmos is within
within us within us
within all





[The Mental Tyrant]

iron mask
clad in armor
vast fear
disguised as wisdom
in the end
the fortress falls
nothing survives
that is false

(Mike)
constant desire for virtue, the higher
achieve the right to judge our brethren with a smile
distortion clinging salvation hangs on by a thread
to all we think we know
illusions of what is gained

to be favored or disgraced
is to live in fear
no matter how we try
we walk the path alone

(Isamu)
cherished beliefs
dependant upon the past
the past and the future
phantoms in the now

overwhelmed with the struggle
try to achieve redemption
grapple with the values
of those who seek control
impressions of the righteous
such a pitiful waste create the seeds of hate
loss
gain
perpetuate
the mental tyrant
