Enlightenment

It's a long long haul my friend
Don't even try to pretend
It's a long long haul my friend
On the road to enlightenment

There was a time
When there was money and power
There was a time
When success became an anchor
There was a time
When the whole act came a cropper
And then there was a time
When I nearly turned a nester

It's a long long haul my friend
Don't even try to pretend
It's a long long haul my friend
On the road to enlightenment

I then turned to religion,
Oh, there were charlatans in every corner
I then turned to boozing
But the hangover was worse than the cure
I then turned to medication,
Sought help, from far and near
After years, it came as a flash
That the 'I' was the self so pure

So, it's a long long haul my friend
Don't even try to pretend
It's a long long haul my friend
On the road to enlightenment

All that you see is what
The mind tells you it's there
All what you hear is that
The mind tells you it's there
All that you feel and cry
When some you love, dies
And all that you think is yours
When you lose it, don't cry yourself hoarse

So, it's a long long haul my friend
Don't even try to pretend
It's a long long haul my friend
On the road to enlightenment
