"Zen does not confuse spirituality with thinking about God while one is peeling potatoes. Zen spirituality is just to peel the potatoes."-Alan Watts


Brings me happiness but you don’t know why

In the darkness I can learn how to hide



Exposes shadows independent of the sky

You say you love me

But the voices tell me when you lie


Do you like the way the sun sets

It sets so low

I want to take you to a mountain so high

And push you over while you reach for the sky


I hear voices

When I’m around you

But I don’t fight it

They teach me how to feel so good


Do you like the way you make me feel

I feel so low

Why do you insist on wasting my time


Do you like the way you drive me crazy

Crazy like the wild blue sea

You want to help me

But truth and honesty is everything to me

And you don’t know what it means


In my dreams

The shadows have been coming to life

I see you in them

Don’t go to sleep

They’ll drive you right out of your mind

So don’t you close your eyes
