The Path of Destiny's Child

                         (Why Must I Think?)

 

 

Chorus: 

Why must I think about any tomorrow?

 Why can’t I just be here now?

  If I stopped thinking of any tomorrow,

    then I’d have no fear or doubt

 

Isn’t each day, sufficient for living?

         Isn’t one moment enough at a time?

       Aren’t my needs all met in this moment?

      The wolf in the sheepfold is only my mind:

         fussing and fretting, creating a storm

      the rabbit who’s never on time—

       wailing and weeping, disturbed and distressed

the snake in the garden—based on illusion

                 the source of vexation—is all in my mind

 
Who’s in control here? Who wrote the script?

       ‘Free will’ would be anarchy rampant—

     What is the meaning of ‘Life’ as we know it?

         Aren’t I more than a bird or a bee?

            (who live in a more civilized way than me)

         Don’t I create my re-al-i-ty?

            These questions are all ego-driven

 

The myths we’ve created, religions we’ve birthed—

     the wars that are all based on ‘God’

    What’s ‘right’ and what’s ‘wrong’

         the weak and the strong

     are shadows / not substance at all—

        The fall’s the descent of a circular motion

           that reaches once more the Sublime,

              it seems like a function of Time—

                       but it’s all a chimera of mind

 

We’re all Plato’s shadows, thinking we’re Real

      Don’t we feel? Can’t we act and reason?

    To think that we’re puppets and not in control

  is a posture more heinous than treason

    But Life’s the Illusion

       we’re just playing roles

     we have fifteen minutes of fame— 

                           then we’re gone

 

   And all that remains is the Game being Played

             over and over

                    over and over

                      over and over, again  

 

(Chorus)

Why must I think about any tomorrow?

 Why can’t I just be here now?

  If I stopped thinking of any tomorrow,

   then I’d have no fear or doubt—

 

All my problems would be gone

     and I could mosey on—

                     down the Path of Destiny’s child
