I like the fact that many people are becoming awaken more and more. And I would like to share with you lyrics of a song I heard recently (This is no ordinary song to me, it really hit the bull's eye within me, which happens rarely). And purchased the CD right afterwards, as I felt a huge urge I must support someone like this.
It is a rap song and you could really see the drastic change in lyrics and trend of topics rappers rap about in range of several years. I recall 10 years ago singing about awakening would be unthinkable in my country. So people rapped about smoking weed, then there were usual hatred, ego boosting topics, now it's becoming a stream for channeling Buddhist-like ideas. Although I don't listen to rap a lot, I find it to be the genre with the greatest ability to impact one's mind. Because it mixes hatred and love, it often shows you bad stuff to teach you about the good one.
The song is not in English, so following is my own translation of the lyrics.
Name - Solitude and music
refrain: Pushed to a corner, Evil trying to swallow the world,
Everything seems to get complicated,
lies and chaos in your minds, are
testing you all the time, so let go of
your uncertainties and fly. Solitude
and music is the greatest cure.
Humility and purity want to become
part of you, When Ego calls, it ends
with a feeling, so try to avoid it.
Your soul wants to go home. The
confusion will disappear when you get
to know yourself.
part 1: See less with your eyes, listen more with your ears, Solitude
and music will help to purge your soul.
That's why I please my sight lot less,
I start playing piano and welcome the
Running away from tension to higher
dimension, My body dies, my soul
becomes alive. Although I feel like
falling asleep, I'm waking up, I
travel into my soul where I'm in the
center of the universe.
My body becomes merely a tool. The
music opens the gates of understanding
towards the endless wisdom.
In solitude I ask nothing, search for
nothing, I feel the freedom and have
compassion for everything. I don't
judge the evil that I recognize,
because even the evil carries a
part 2: Solitude energize me, in it I am myself, music is magic that
creates a beautiful world that makes
me smile like Buddha did. It's just me
And so healing of my soul can begin,
before my Ego has chance to intoxicate
the world. Shallowness of the never
sleeping mind can betray you, so in
meditation I find the deeper meaning.
Thus sometimes I run to my own cave,
when I cannot find the answers to my
questions. Being with myself alone is
magical moment of peace, solitude in
the nature is my own island of
Maybe that's why I'm running alone
like Forrest Gump my whole life, If
somebody follows me I don't mind. When
someone joins me, I'll be glad, if
nobody does I won't get sad.
part 3: Do you see that obsessive addiction to everything around us?
This way the flower of your soul won't
be able to grow. How can you expect to be
happy with someone else, if you cannot
be happy with yourself?
Maybe that's why people are looking
for happiness outside of them, looking
for something beautiful, material,
something that will succeed. They're
unhappy and nervous, asking when will
happiness come? Without realizing it's
already within them.
Your love for others is just an
selfish act. More than love you give
them slavery. Perhaps that's the
reason for so many tears in this world. Knowing
yourself is tough but will make you
Even the sunshine seems to be nicer
after the storm, the whole life is just a
ride that tempts you. Energy starts
nowhere and nowhere it ends, that's
why I never depart myself with hope.
