Nothing is born and nothing dies
Hey my friend, have you got some cash to spend?
Fresh water that will heal you
And wash away the pain
But it’s only a reflection, a dream and nothing more
Because nothing really exists and nothing will ever be
Hey my friend, are you hurting bad for her?
And your mind it lies and tells you
Hey, it’s brighter over there
But it’s only a heavy fog that soon the sun will lift
Because nothing really was and nothing will ever be
Through your eyes
Reality’s painted new
But if you take away the images and thoughts
What will stay behind?
Tell me why, please tell me why
Why I can’t, can’t be free, tell me why
Because no prison walls exist and you were always free
Nothing really exists, nothing will ever be
Hey my friend, is there peace deep in your heart?
Like a restful wave that holds you above the turmoil
And takes you to the shore
And no ideas or suffering or fame
Will change the life you have
Because you know that nothing exists
And nothing will ever be
You know nothing is born and nothing ever dies
