Sufjan Stevens – My Rajneesh Lyrics

My Rajneesh By Sufjan Stevens

After the storm, we shaved our legs to the skin
Into the snow, our footprints showed where we’d been
They gave us names, they said my name means war
Dwelling in song, the lion and the lamb were restored

Illumination, accede my need, my Rajneesh
Hallucination, accede my need, my Rajneesh

I lit a fire and drank of the breath of his kiss
My tambourine affirmed by the dance of his wrist
Mystical star, burn bright like the tail of a dog
Now we are blessed with the righteousness of the Lord

Illumination, accede my need, my Rajneesh
Hallucination, accede my need, my Rajneesh

I’m on a path of love, I’m on a parrot
Possess me with prayer on the bluff
I’m on a task for God
Entheogen, you lift me within Upanishad

Bright as a thunderbird singing
You stare at the sun to see the sublime
Forgetting the light that makes you go blind

Osho you ask of us singing
If courage is love of the unknown
Consider the powers parading you home

I’m on a path of love saying
You stand in the shade to feel it was blessed
Obscuring from light the seeds you possess

I’m on a path of trust singing
Whatever it takes, receive of the light
The terror will take whatever it likes
