    I will soon have a very limited number of discs with a version of this project where I've set the crossfades between songs in order to give it an interesting flow - more like the "concept albums" from the 70's (remember laying on the floor with headphones on, staring at black light posters and lava lamps?). They come in a digipack case with no shrink-wrap (you're welcome) and also include an actual physical object (CD) with a lyric sheet. All proceeds will go to support the Thosum Gephelling Institute in Williamsville, Vermont, where nice people gather for weekly free teachings.

lyrics

Drinking Poison

Negativity – comes so easily -- but instead of tea --it’s like drinking poison, this avoiding opens doors for ignorance and suffering

CHORUS:
Will I change something true inside me
If I’m looking instead of hiding
Can I see any thoughts behind the pain
(Lurking just beyond what you can see)

Nothing here in my situation
Is the cause of this agitation
What are bad are the thoughts I entertain
(You believe that your thoughts are really true)

It’s extraordinary
When I finally comprehend that
What I’m thinking just may not be true
(all your thoughts are temporary)

When I think that I got an answer
To the question of the moment
My days of drinking poison now are through
(Am I out of your mind?)

Cherishing myself invites attachment, hatred, enemies and lonely suffering

(CHORUS)

Are you still gonna drink the poison? Do you really have to suffer?
Does it help you if you suffer? Should you really have to suffer?
Do you like the taste of poison? Do you really like to suffer?
Do you want to suffer anymore?
Will it help if you choose to suffer more ?
Should you really suffer anymore?
Are you still gonna drink the poison? Do you really have to suffer?
Does it help you if you suffer? Do you like the taste of poison?
Do you really like to suffer? Do you want to suffer anymore?
