lyrics

Hike in the woods, it’s a pastime for me
Over the hill, and what do I see
Way out here an abandoned building?
Peek inside, a crew of monks are chilling
“What do you search for? There is no meaning”
I’m looking for something you gotta help me
“Don’t bother searching, there is no meaning”
I checked myself into that zen ministry
For ten days and nights I didn’t speak
Standing all day on a balance beam
You got to learn to unlearn all that shit he decreed
My master leaned over and whispered to me
“What do you search for? There is no meaning”
I’m trying and trying, you gotta help me
“Don’t bother searching, there is no meaning”
And kouan and so on, into infinity

森を静かに歩くこと、それが俺の楽しみ
丘を越えて、何が見える?
こんなところにさびれた建物?
覗けば、僧侶がチルしてる
「何を探している、意味なんてない。」
何かを探している、俺を助けてくれ
「探しても無駄だ、意味なんてない。」
俺は僧侶になったんだ
十の朝と夜、黙って過ごし
一日中棒の上に立った
「今までの経験は捨てろ」
師匠は俺の耳元でささやいた
「何を探しているのか?無意味なことを…」
何かを探している、俺を助けてくれ
「探しても無駄だ、意味なんてない。」
問いの答えは出ない、永遠に
