  1. Borrowed

From the album The Beatenpath

Lyrics

Nothing is what it seems
still I’m attached to everything
my weakness, my Achilles heel
whether aversion or love I feel
I keep holding on, I hold on
I keep collecting although I know
I’m not bringing anything where I’m going
I keep forgetting it’s all borrowed
everything I think I own
even my life will be given back
given back when I am done
maybe it’s the temporary situation
makes me cling to every little thing
this solid state doesn’t mix
with my ephemeral fate
although I’m just along for the ride
I can’t help but wonder why
I wonder why
I keep forgetting it’s all borrowed
everything I think I own
even my life will be given back
given back when I am done
I often hear knowledge brings us power
I can’t see a trace of that at all
as my life is slipping by the hour
I can’t find comfort as I fall
so many ways I try to find
meaning behind what doesn’t exist
so many ways I try to hide
behind the fear of what I missed
I keep forgetting it’s all borrowed
everything I think I own
even my life will be given back
given back when I am done
