Song#: 4

Album
Name of Song: So why can’t you live past the time of your dead

It slices through everything
that stands in its way,
It melts opposition
so you still have your say.

You can’t really feel it,
Perceiving you can,
The power of the spirit
permeates all things grand.

You cannot even see it
but its intention gives life,
The power of the spirit
never tangles with strife.

Chorus
You are a spirit,
Immortal it’s said,
So why can’t you live
past the time of your dead.
______

It’s about your awareness
and how conscious you are,
Staying awake when the pain
goes too far,

Unmoved by a loss
that you can’t even talk,
When the pain just continues
but you still try to walk.

Real immortality
has a tolerance for force,
You don’t take the bait
and you stay right on course.

Chorus
You are a spirit,
Immortal it’s said,
So why can’t you live
past the time of your dead.
______

Real immortality
understands the both sides,
It’s always so neutral
It has codes it abides.

It never betrays
the rights of a being,
Never deserts
a true friend in need.

Chorus
You are a spirit,
Immortal it’s said,
So why can’t you live
past the time of your dead.

Bridge
Collect up your friends
who play in your game,
These are my friends
who can stand up the same.
Each has a willingness
to protect and to love,
Whatever is needed
to stay separated above.

There aren’t many players
who can play in this game,
It’s not something magical
but that stand up the same.

Each has a willingness
to protect and to love,
Whatever is needed
to stay separated above.

Proud to be spiritual,
It started with us,
Us is the spirit
without all the fuss.

Find your own self
when you know you will die,
Separate completely
Especially from your mind.

You’ll stabilize yourself
by locating present time,
Then separate yourself
and disconnect from your mind.
