Lyrics

See, when you give up climbing you can see
die to all opinion
that will clean our vision
death is a seed
see through me
Iím not of worth
my cell, must shatter if Iím to be free

see, when you give up striving you can see
when you finally cave in
the self is always lying
end the division
life speaks to the world
through the bodies
of those who are willing
to take their armour off
love impale my disgust with myself

we sold our life
to buy a blight
leave all you were behind
explore alone
stay alone
please explore the pain you run from
deny the pleasures you hide in
songs are anesthetics
theyíre not freedom
freedom is a word that has no meaning
unless you watch in the dark is what needed
understand the science of our blight
of our sorrow
it was caused by what we wanted
we were afraid to be just normal
so we tried
lie after lie.

Analysis

Tao Te Ching, 71

Knowing ignorance is strength.
Ignoring knowledge is sickness.
If one is sick of sickness, then one is not sick.
The sage is not sick because he is sick
of sickness.
Therefore he is not sick.


Tao Te Ching, 13

Accept disgrace willingly.
Accept misfortune as the human
condition.
What do you mean by "Accept disgrace
willingly"?
Accept being unimportant.
Do not be concerned with loss or gain.
This is called "accepting disgrace
willingly."
What do you mean by "Accept
misfortune as the human condition"?
Misfortune comes from having a body.
Without a body, how could there be
misfortune?
Surrender yourself humbly; then you
can be trusted to care for all things.
Love the world as your own self; then
you can truly care for all things.
