You thought you knew because you read it in a book
The words fed to the masses and traded for faith
The ideas of the prophet translated as memes
Blinding beliefs sold as merchandise
Making profit on the devotees.
Beyond the frontiers of dogma,
there is an unrestrained freedom
but to get there, you have to forget about
the uncivilised freedom of the old school rock star.
What you thought was the truth
is only the beginning of a lie.
Go back to the body, go back to the rhythm of the heart.
Loose yourself in the purifying fires of not knowing with the mind.
Faith is a big word
Freedom is even bigger
The Word distracts you from the truth
into the exquisite pleasures of description.
While the real you sits quietly knowing,
filled with every single spark that shines forth from the Sun.
The teacher shapes you into an anxious contradiction.
A skilled puppet
Who is in charge?
Is it the Donkey or the Spirit Rider
