Light of Consciousness
Deep in the dark forest of your mind
A little white flame enlightens the night
It's guiding you to help you find
The long-hidden path of what is right
O sweet seductions, how many of you there are
That try to mislead us, and make us do wrong
Still we can rely on the bright shining star
That in the skies above us does belong
We must try to unite those two;
The light within us, and the light in the skies
Together they're the essence of what is you
They are all that in past and future lies
