Lyrics

When I asked him
He described a thousand lifetimes
At each turn, a hint of what one still must learn

Now I've read the thoughts of philosophers
The words of liars, who say that underneath I'm worthless
Incomplete?

Some one said we live our lives in between the extremes
Is the art of life discipline?
Is that the sweet mystery?

The art of life is ...
Without rushing, without faltering we push it as far as we can

Observe with patience
Free your mind
Efficiency, control
To develop the form starts with acceptance
Then submission to the goal

Some one said somewhere we live our lives in between the extremes
Is the art of life discipline?
Is that the sweetest mystery?

The art of life is ...
Without rushing, without faltering, unraveling the secrets of knowledge
We must challenge and defeat our four natural enemies;
Fear
Clarity of mind
Power and the desire to rest
