Suffering is the nature of samsara by The Roches
I woke up on a mountain I had walked around the world
My family would have been so proud
I never had that kind of courage when I was a girl
Of all the children it was me who always cried out loud.
I cried out loud when a boy in my class
poisoned my best friend.
He put her body in a box on the grass
I had so much to tell her but I never saw her again.
I'm trying to be true to what I believe in.
I grew up on the east coast of a place they call The West
I had a set of rules to go by
Followed them so faithfully I needed me a rest
So I took up with the guru but I didn't really know why.
Guru said "The pain you're in is nothing but a dream"
I told him "I'm unable to believe."
"Well, that's a start," he said and then he ran out of gasoline
But I still think he's got something up his sleeve.
He's trying to be true to what he believes in.
