Lyric Essay

Isabelle and AJ

Inside Siddhartha's Head

I wanna reach the sky

I wanna be up there high

I'm climbing and climbing

but for every rung I pass

Another Appears

I climb and climb

Wondering if I'll ever reach the top

I climb and climb knowing I can't ever stop

I climb and climb

A rung breaks and I dangle

No more climbing

I feel stuck

I already was stuck

In this continuous Journey up

I wasn't happy where I was

I'm not happy where I am now

Will I be happy when I reach the ledge?

The children he scolds then becomes

Why isn't life fair?

Why can't we all just have what we want?

What can't we all just have what we deserve?

Why is it always take take take...

Why do we break our backs, our hearts, and at times sell our souls?

For what?


Take life

Take love

Take hope

Take happiness

Take strength

Take support

Take faith

Take trust

Take friendship

Take warmth

Take effort

Take hard work

Take passion

Take the good

Why don't they take

Take misery

Take anger

Take hunger

Take thirst

Take exhaustion

Take heart break

Take grief

Take greed

Take guilt

Take helplessness

Take pain

Take hurt

Take longing

Take barriers

Take enemies

Take hate

Take the bad

Why must we lose to gain? And gain to lose?

Why can't we gain to gain?

Can't we never lose?

What is life anyways?

Something to be worked for so hard, literally entire lives - no pun - and bam, taken.

And that take not only effects that who was taken, but it ripples and takes something from family,

Ripples, takes from friends

Ripples, takes from acquaintances

Ripples, takes even from the unknown

Ripples, takes from the world.

And what it takes is replaced and given something awful...

I'm over the rainbow

Over it.

I don't see any pot of gold..

I see withered, dry, beaten and eaten old grass...and an imprint with nothing was taken.

Oh death what a marvelous conception.

I don't care,

I want them back.

Don't tell me everything happens for a reason,

Don't tell me something lost is something gained,

Don't tell me their in a better place,

Don't tell me time heals all,

Don't tell me it was anyone's will,

Don't tell me don't tell don't tell me

I do not care.

All that matters is that I have lost.

I am in grief.

The emotions I am experiencing are boundless.

How about a gift?

I give, and you take.

The Jedi

Super hero

I am your super hero

You don't know it's me

I'm fine working behind the mask

Please don't ask,

My identity you don't need to see!

I work for love

I work for justice

I work for you...

Sometimes I wish you could know the truth

But it's my secret...

I gotta keep it..

I would die for you

I fight for you

Take a bullet to my brain for you..

If that's what it takes

I am your superhero

Flying through the stars

Taking ever scar with pride

As long as I am by your side

You don't know it's me

I'm your superhero

I sacrifice

I pay the price

Just so you can walk away safely...

In the shadows i'm there

Watching over you...

Good vs evil!

I triumph all

You can sleep safe tonight

My darling...

Because I am your superhero

Vasudeva (New Life)

We live We laugh We love

We cry We hate We fall

But we always carry the passion

One day our passion becomes great

so great that it has an incomprehensible power

We leave our bodies

We leave everyone behind

We go to the otherside.

You will not be punished for your anger, you will be punished by your anger.

Star Wars Siddhartha and The Hero's Journey

“Wisdom cannot be imparted. Wisdom that a wise man attempts to impart always sounds like foolishness to someone else ... Knowledge can be communicated, but not wisdom. One can find it, live it, do wonders through it, but one cannot communicate and teach it.”

"Who's the more foolish, the fool, or the fool who follows him?"

"Fear is the path to the dark side, fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, and hate leads to suffering"

"Your focus determines your reality"

"The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the learner; now I am the master.”

"Attachment is forbidden. Possession is forbidden. Compassion, which I would define as unconditional love, is essential"

"Luminous beings are we, not this crude matter"

“You enter the forest
at the darkest point,
where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,
it is someone else's path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else's way,
you are not going to realize
your potential.”

“To translate knowledge and information into experience: that seems to be the function of literature and art.”

“Passion makes most psychiatrists nervous”

“The fundamental human experience is that of compassion.”

I am not going to identify which quote came from what work. That way there is no bias. There is a common theme in all three. Love and wisdom. Once you strip away the titles, the comparison is uncanny. Like stripping the clothes and colors off a human, we're all the same underneath.
