Now it s time to say good bye,

and lighten up my load;

Pay off all my worldly debts,

so I may hit the road.


Give way what I do not want,

take only what I need;

Honor my commitments,

so at last I'm finally freed.


Free to go where the wind may take me,

in my mind or upon the land;

Detached from the weight of attachment,

mindful of who I am.


Who am I, but who I am,

Iím me, myself, and I;

Not the people Iím with, fame, friends, lovers, or wealth,

but me, the Spirit of this guy.


So mindful I am, and mindful Iíll be,

conscious of creating further bonds;

Except the joining of my Spirit,

with the Spirit to which all life belongs.
