Lone Ghost

Remove The Veil

In devotion, I remove the 'you and me' veil
and perceive everything as me or mine.

Only in such state I naturally concern
about the common welfare of all,

Otherwise, it is tremendously hard,
and service is a torturing sacrifice,

it is not that I am egocentric,
that's just how nature operates,

it is all about me, me and me.

I am the seat of all I can experience and perceive,
No wonder why 'I' always comes first, and 'you' next.

They key is in identifying everything as me or mine.
So long as there is 'you and me', union will never be,

Remove the veil.
