Away With Words Prompt:
When we are young, everyone chomps at the bit to teach us what they know. Our parents and teachers badger us to death to learn words and ideas so important for them to pass on. But these ideas work like viruses – they work for themselves and their own livelihood and reproduction, not ours. The idea is always clamoring to "get out", to be spoken or written so it can make another copy of itself - so it can reproduce. Just as some strains of virus can be beneficial to us and others can be so damaging, ideas can work to improve or destroy us. But the virus doesn't care about its host's well-being; we become only a breeding-ground. To be too attached to our ideas works against us in the long run. To clear the mind of these visitors shows us more of what "we" are – we are not our ideas. We are not what we have learned. "We" are something else, something that by its very nature defies description. But a clear, unattached mind sees a profound and beautiful truth that is lost on those who are too obsessed with definition, too greedy to say "I know" when the case may be that we can never know. It is up to us if we despair of this notion, or if we can embrace and make peace with it.

Lyrics:
I have never had my way
Away with words
Now I remember days
Where I just felt insane
And loved the pain

You’re wasting eternity
Believing the worst in me
While the march of the days takes you farther away
Listen to me

Light floods, see again the sun
Light floods, bitterness undone

Grand designs release me from the mire
Let forgiveness guide us to the shore (the shore, the shore)

Away with words
What we define loses its worth
Away with words
Old thoughts confine us
Away with words
Death of desire is rebirth
Away with words
Make peace with her

Way down, way down, way down…

The balance can end the tragedy
The poison will pass without harm (You'll see)

Minds to run...

Grow fallow fields once more
Grow fallow fields once more

Let the march of days take you far away
And the balance restore your harmony
An eternity spent in tragedy
Let the balance restore this memory.
