Reminds me of this, which is what I'm listening to right now.



Lyrics:
There's unlimited supply
And there is no reason why
I tell you it was all a frame
They only did it 'cos of fame
Who?

E.M.I.
E.M.I.
E.M.I.

Too many people had the suss
Too many people support us
Un unlimited amount
Too many outlets in and out
Who?

E.M.I
E.M.I
E.M.I

And certain friends are crucified
The day they wished that we had died
We are an addition
We are ruled by none
Never ever never

And you thought that we were faking
That we were all just money making
You do not believe we're for real
Or you would lose your cheap appeal?

Don't judge a book just by the cover
Unless you cover just another
And blind acceptance is a sign
Of stupid fools who stand in line
Like

E.M.I
E.M.I
E.M.I

Unlimted edition
With an unlimited supply
That was the only reason
We all had to say goodbye

Unlimited supply (E.M.I)
There is no reason why (E.M.I)
I tell you it was all a frame (E.M.I)
They only did it 'cos of fame (E.M.I)
I do not need the pressure (E.M.I)
I can't stand those useless fools (E.M.I)
Unlimited supply (E.M.I)
Hello E.M.I
Goodbye A & M

Those Mahayana have their kickass song:
http://satinoxide.bandcamp.com/track/th ... s-of-being

Ohm Ah Guru Namo Amito Hum

Visualize the body
Translucent as a rainbow
The three stages of being
My spirit, a drop
I am a traveller to the pure lands
The channel, the path
Dharmakaya near my lord’s heart
My destination

Scalp: Avalokiteshvara
Heart: Dharmakaya
The egg, The dome
Of white and oval light

May all creatures enjoy
The purity after the ritual
Spirit-drop, my heart, my soul
My body is like a bird
Spirit drops, into the core
Body dissolves in air
Drips and drops will drift
Fingers dissolve in water
Through all the lower doors
Closed and I reach
The pure land of the Buddha

Hi Benjamin,

...the cause, the germ, of the arising of dukkha is within dukkha itself, and not outside; and we must equally well remember that the cause, the germ, of the cessation of dukkha, of the destruction of dukkha, is also within dukkha itself, and not outside. -- Walpola Rahula, "What The Buddha Taught"

Made in Thailand แผ่นดินของเรา,
เราได้เก็บมันไว้ตั้งแต่สมัยโบราณ, มีการสิ่งที่ดีมาก
ตั้งแต่ยุคของสุโขทัยไปลพบุรีอยุธยาธนบุรี
ผ่านไปวันที่ทันสมัย​​กรุงเทพฯ
เมืองที่ผู้คนล้มลงเปิดท่อระบายน้ำ (ไม่ตำหนิพวกเขาสำหรับมัน)

Made in Thailand ทำในที่ดินของเราเอง
ดินแดนแห่งความหมายเพลงและการเต้นรำ
ชาวต่างชาติที่แอบชื่นชมอยู่ของสินค้าไทย แต่คนไทยไม่เห็นคุณค่า
กลัวถูกมองลงไปที่ชื่นชอบสินค้าไทยไม่ได้เป็นแฟชั่น
ถ้ามัน "เมดอินไทยแลนด์" ใครจะให้การรับประกันสำหรับพวกเขา?
(ฉันคิดว่าคนควรจะยอมรับความรับผิดชอบในการนี้.)

Made in Thailand และมันชื่นชมคนเข้าใจ
ว่าเหล่านี้เป็นผลิตภัณฑ์ที่ผลิตโดยคนไทยทำโดยคนไทย
เสื้อ, กางเกงและกางเกงยีนส์,
จะส่งไปต่างประเทศบนเครื่องบินและนำเข้าแล้วกลับ
มันคนไทยที่ใบหน้ากำไร (แต่ชาวต่างชาติที่ได้รับเงิน.)

(Interlude)
Made in Thailand และใส่ขึ้นเมื่ออยู่ในร้านค้า
พวกเขาวาง "ในญี่ปุ่น" ป้ายพวกเขา
แล้วพวกเขาก็ขายดิบขายดี, ขายราคาสูง
และผู้สวมใส่แล้วโม้พวกเขาได้มีเสื้อผ้านำเข้า
แฟชั่นล่าสุดจากนิตยสาร
มันไม่ได้เป็น foreginers ที่โกงเรา
แต่มันก็เป็นเราที่โกงตัวเอง ... โอ้ ...

Daniel Variations was done by Steve Reich in memory of American Jewish reporter Daniel Pearl who was kidnapped and murdered by islamic fundamentalists in Pakistan in 2002. The work celebrates Daniel, instead of focusing on his death.

And the Blessed One addressed the bhikkhus, saying: "Behold now, bhikkhus, I exhort you: All compounded things are subject to vanish. Strive with earnestness!"
