through an encounter with a fly a disciple attains awareness of his own mortality, sitting at his teacher's lotus feet... distracted by scents of humor and the spectacle of the spiritual, he denounces his guru and begins his own journey



this fly
this fly
tracing circles in the sky
today he flies around
tomorrow he may die
oh me! oh my!
how a mortal man could cry
for a fly's demise
brings tears to my eyes...

mmm, what's that scent?
something smells so sweet
could it be? yes it is!
it's my guru's feet!

Master! I couldn't help but notice
your feet are shaped like lotus flowers
i've been listening for hours
to you speak
what a treat
to sit here at your feet
if I had it my way
I would put you on repeat

pada pada pada

master, you said that you could teach me to be free
but nobody can teach me what it is to be me
no lifeguard on duty
no bound'ries in beauty
if I had it my way
if i had it my way...
