Name of Song: One Life Goals

One life goals,
OK… but what about next life,
You think it’s all baloney,
We’re so rife with the endless strife.

You strive for the perfect partner,
You strive to make the perfect life,
You persist until you’ve achieved it,
And it’s worth every ounce of strife.

But why don’t we plan for next life,
Or longer if you can even see,
There’s more to life than just this one,
There’s more to feeling free.

At first it’s hard to remember,
After all that’s why you can’t,
Deciding to best this endless spell,
And ignore the earthling rants.

Conditioning minds is old hat,
That’s why you can’t recall,
It’s been going on for endless years,
This insidious spiritual brawl.

So come ye one and all I say,
Rise up above the common fray,
Be willing to open your very own soul,
To the invitations to stray.

At first it’s hard to remember,
After all that’s why you can’t,
Deciding to best this endless spell,
And ignore the earthling rants.

I hope this song has shaken you,
We’re running out of Earth time,
We’re balanced on the edge to hell,
That’s much worse than all this crime.

You spend your life achieving,
You finally meet up with death,
I’ll bet you’re worried about where you’re going,
As you take your very last breath.

At that point you might remember,
That you’re not the body you’re in,
And you probably know you’re an immortal being,
That will return to be again.

Aren’t you tired of losing all your assets,
And having to start again,
Aren’t you tired of repeating those same old lies,
So you always remain the same.

So many distractions,
From what you need to find,
It’s silly I know to say such things,
But please find yourself in time.

So many distractions,
From what you need to find,
It’s silly I know to say such things,
But please find yourself in time.
