Monkey Mind

“Monkey Mind”

How can I stop
My unruly thoughts
(Like a horse it gallops)
Endless chatter
(A million miles an hour)
Serving no good purpose
(A million miles an hour)

Tame the monkey mind
(My mind is racing, racing)
Rein in your ideas
(Like a horse it gallops)
You’ll find the peace you’re seeking
(A million miles an hour)
In the stillness of the water
(A million miles an hour)

The monkey monkey monkey
The monkey monkey monkey
Like a tide it races
Going all directions

How can I stop the
Monkey mind, monkey mind
Endless chatter of
Monkey mind, monkey mind

Tame the monkey mind
Rein in your ideas
You’ll find the peace you’re seeking
In the stillness of the water

How shall I find
(Can’t find it find it find it)
The stillness of the water
(Like a tide it races)
I am buffeted by currents
(A million miles an hour)
Going all directions
(A million miles an hour)

Cease your chasing
(Can’t find it find it find it)
After foolish pleasures
(Like a tide it races)
You cannot enter heaven
(A million miles an hour)
On the back of an idea horse
(A million miles an hour)

I want to chase
Monkey mind, monkey mind
The foolishness of
Monkey mind, monkey mind

Tame the monkey mind
Rein in your ideas
You’ll find the peace you’re seeking
In the stillness of the water
In the stillness of the water
