    I heard that you said you'll never die twice,
    that's true in the physical but this is life.
    I've died many times in this thing call life,
    in mind, in spirit, in pain and in strife.
    I've died only to find myself resurrected,
    in light that keeps my soul well protected.

    So the journey we take is always within,
    but that's not the place most people begin.
    We think of another, a friend or a lover,
    a place we can hide or live under cover.
    We seek the external that's so out of reach,
    in hope that we'll find true love or true peace.

    We play with each other in lust do we seek,
    to find all we need to make one complete...
    but this ain't the answer and life will reveal
    the truth once we learn to really be still.
