If you want to be enlightened, oh, oh
You gotta lighten up, it’s so.
If you want to be enlightened, I know
You got to lighten up.
Well way back when in Moses time
This kid was floatin’ down the Nile
While Pharaoh’s daughter was takin’ her bath.
After she recovered from her blushes – she drew him
out of the bulrushes and took him home.
Little did she know that many years hence this little bitty
baby Egyptian prince would be the star of a hot hit
Some Swami from Tibet sellin’ karmic heaviness preached
superstitious suffering victim martyrhood.
Well if I knew better I’d certainly do better
But if I use all my time to should on myself I get those
woulda, coulda, shoulda metaphysical blues.
So I stay in the now with a twinkle in my eye
Meditate, belly laugh, endorphin levels up, releasin’
self-pity to the garbage dump.
Well, life’s just a big old ink blot movie that sometimes
appears a little screwy.
So we blame game conditions on the other guy.
Consciousness creates Lord what you say
Relationship is the hall of mirrors
And the fears & the angers are all made of glass
So I choose today to deal in the Real.
Since God is everywhere, I wanna take her to brunch.
Release doom & gloom, watch the Brady Bunch.
