Make it Empty

The Psalm

1. The storm makes the lake cloudy—But—
when the water is calm you can see all
that lives between the surface and the lake bed.
2. I fill my brain, I like being smart—But—
it is peace and calm that are hard to find.
3. More effort brings less and less reward
the mind is full but hard to tame
4. Make it empty for true understanding
calm the waters so to truly see.

The Song

[spoken] The storm makes the lake cloudy—But—
when the water is calm you can see all
that lives between the surface and the lake bed.

[chorus] Make it empty
Make it empty
Make it empty for true understanding

I fill my brain, I like being smart
It’s peace and calm that are hard to find
More effort brings less and less reward
the mind is full but hard to tame

[chorus]

I fill my brain, I like being smart
It’s peace and calm that are hard to find
I work real hard, I do my part
It’s peace and calm that are hard to find

[chorus]
