I got those Samsara blues,
Thinking good or bad? Win or lose?
All that smokin' and talkin' meth
Just turns the wheel of birth and death.
I'll never attain liberation
By mere sense gratification
LSD and marijuana
Won't get me to Nirvana,
And meditating on the Void
Only gets me paranoid
Remembering I'm not this body,
Telling her I'm Brahmachary,
There's really nothing to control
'Cause I'm eternal spirit soul.
Fixed up in Krishna Consciousness,
Who cares about the Maya mess?

So forget that Uncle Sam Thing,
Just keep chanting, chanting, chanting
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna
Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare.
In material entanglement what calms me?
A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami.
Krishna chase away those Samsara blues!
That's what I said.

Hari Das Brahmachary
