At the Temple

My credit's no good but my karma ain't bad, I'm a buffalo roaming the hills.

lyrics

Well, the prayer wheels were turning at the temple
The smell of incense was heavy in the air
And the monks were all chanting a tune that felt so familiar
And when I close my eyes and sing it, it takes me back there

And they sang Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Up at the temple, they gave me a song

Well I wondered aloud if I'd like living at the temple
I wondered if there were some answers that I might find
Wondered if all of this thinking might somehow be harmful
But if nothing is permanent, then neither's my mind

So I sang Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Down at the temple, they gave me a song

My credit's no good but my karma ain't bad
I'm a buffalo roaming the hills
And all this soul searching might come to an end
If I could just keep my mind still

Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
The jewel in the lotus gave me a song

So we sang Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Om mani padme hum
Up at the temple, they gave me song
