COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

COME ON IN, BEND YOUR SKIN

At the Core




we came upon a temple
with a solemn atmosphere
but the davening was deafening
and bloodied up our ears

so we moved on to a chapel
with a father and a son
but the place was haunted by a holy ghost
that frightened everyone

looking for meaning
held by ones who came before
nothing's needed
at the core

we’re searching for the answer
said the seeker to the sage
who took us all down to bollywood
to helped us disengage

the leading lady a sitar star
wowed us on the stage
she turned to whole house on with a live satsang
that felt more like a rave

looking for meaning
held by ones who came before
nothing's needed
at the core

we came upon a pathway
overgrown with pop gurus
they were offering maps to nowhere
how could we refuse

we don't need directions
when there's nowhere to explore
so we put away our compass
we didn't need it anymore

getting out of our own way
and the ones who came before
because nothing's closer
than the core

only those illusions
held by ones who came before
nothing's closer
than the core

nothing is needed at the core
