lyrics

Blinding flashing red,
A thousand angry thoughts scream
inside your head

Tendons strain and nerves ache
Statues break in this
Frozen, raw communion
Minds awake

Sharpen your mind on that whetstone
Gritting teeth,
Unloading wailing ghosts here
spirits flee

Sit with this suffering
A Path through pain to purify
Grieve and cleanse your sins
A Path through pain to purify

Sit with this suffering
A Path through pain to purify
Breathe and look within
A Path through pain to purify

Broken but Clean,
The open wound in your mind
Cleansed of pus and dirt
Healed, pure, cool and sound

Fluttering butterfly wings
Lifts the dust and clears the view
The flowing tears washes away
mud and caked blood
The hardened soil loosenes
the barren landscape fertile once more
Dig through the layers to within

Cool, untouched water
The still pool offers wisdom
Drink and recieve
the knowledge that was always yours

Stand aware
