Lyrics Translation[edit | edit source]
Everything is your will mother, Star of will you are,
You do your work mother, people call it my doing.
Elephants sink in swamp,
while handicapped traverse mountains
One is given the path of enlightenment,
another is given the path of downfall.
I am the machine, You are the user;
I am the house, you the Spirit dwelling there.
I am the chariot, you the charioteer;
the way you drive, that way I walk.
