As you follow the path of peace,
The view of enemies fade and cease,
Life becomes the path itself, free of belief,
True budo you become, from a cocoon released.
What were those foolish thoughts of fight and opposition?
What were those foolish wants for power and position?
The kami dance for joy, buddha nature is expressed,
When religion disappears divinity and holiness is left.
If only people knew respect is non resistance,
If only people knew all else is non existence,
If only people knew if only don't exist,
The fog would clear and left would be a swirling mist.
Yeah but, no but, yeah but,yeah but no but what if?
There is no yeah but or no but or what if, it's all a myth.
The mist now clearing the sun shines, and it detects,
The formless forming and shows, if what? Respect!
