Giving Up Everything by Natalie Merchant

Giving up everything
My hungry ghost of hopefulness
Giving up everything
Not haunted by wanting this
Giving up everything
The fortune I was saving
Giving up everything
I mercy-killed my craving
Giving up everything
I've opened up my eyes for this
Giving up everything
See the whole magnificent emptiness
Gave what I want for how it is
For the stone inside and the bitterness
For the sweetness at the core of it
Giving up everything
The master plan, the scheming
Giving up everything
My cursed search for meaning
Giving up everything
The compass and the map I was reading
The hinterlands I'm leaving
I'm finally leaving behind
Giving up everything
The big to-do, the hullabaloo
The tug-of-war for some twisted truth
For the everlasting ache of it
No longer slave, not chained to it
No gate, no guard, no keeper
No guru, master, teacher
See the slow-receding faces
Dissolve to black, no traces
