lyrics

ĀLAYA-VIJÑĀNA

Why are we born if we all have to die?
Why is so poor the place that gave me life?

- “Little boy, what worries you so much?”
- “I’ve seen dead bodies floating in the Ganges and I wondered what’s the meaning of all this pain and suffering?”
- “Have you forgotten it, little boy?”

The flowers grow and
Then they all wither
Stars that shine on
Have to fade off
I’ve wasted my life to solve this riddle
But just death responds to us all

Why do we keep standing here
just to feel pain and grief?
Why do we fight to live
if death is the one who wins?

- “What’s the point of being born if death and sadness always triumph at the end?”
- “Life and death are parts of the same thing. The world is constantly changing, in constant motion. Things die so others can born. It is not the end”
