Song#: 4

Album
Name of Song: Understanding

I survive on understanding,
It always gives me life,
It softens the shell of time within,
It calms that inner strife.

I need that understanding,
I need its pervading wave,
Its power derives from the spirits we are,
Without it just isn’t the same.

Chorus
Understanding oneself,
Understanding my friends,
Understanding those around,
That’s my spiritual cleanse.
______

I desire true understanding,
Desiring its potent love,
There’s nothing that matches its quiet calm,
We use it to be who we are.

I continue because of understanding,
It urges to pervade and blend,
It looks for what we don’t quite get,
It solves without even a qualm.

Chorus
Understanding oneself,
Understanding my friends,
Understanding those around,
That’s my spiritual cleanse.
______

I innately live for understanding,
To give and receive no matter what,
I sometimes forget its power,
Reminded by that vacuum in my gut.

Understanding is within us,
It never dies like death just goes to sleep,
As it awakens again in our new life,
It’s the timeless and deathless we keep.

Chorus
Understanding oneself,
Understanding my friends,
Understanding those around,
That’s my spiritual cleanse.
