Published on 4 Nov 2015

“Stiller” – an adaptation of “Thriller”, performed by Br. Phap Luu and the Wake Up Ambassador “Mellow Moons” dharma sharing group at the 2015 Deer Park English Retreat be-in.
LYRICS:

It’s close to midnight with fear and sadness lurking
In the dark
Under the moonlight you feel a pain that almost stops
Your heart
You try to breathe, but tension takes the breath before
You make it
You start to freeze as anger looks you right between
The eyes
You’re paralyzed

Until your stiller, still inside
And no one else’ll save you from the beast inside yourself
Till you are stiller, still inside
You’re fighting for your life without a stiller
thriller insight

You hear the bell sound and realize there’s nowhere
Left to go
You see your mind run and wonder if you really see
The sun
You close your eyes and know that this is just
Imagination
But all the while you feel the madness creepin’ up
Behind
You’ve lost your mind

Until your stiller, still inside
There ain’t no birth and death there’s just the present and
your breath
And then your stiller, still inside
You’re fighting for your life without a stiller
thriller insight

Mindfulness calls
And the dead start to step into freedom
There’s no way out except into the depths of your mind
(It’s open wide)
This is the start of your life

Now they can’t get you; though demons close you in on
Every side
They can’t possess you unless you’re trapped by habits in
Your mind
Now is the time for you and I to walk in peace
Together
All through the night it saves you from the terrors
in your mind
It makes you free

Since it’s a stiller, stiller night
Your breath can free you more than anything
that you could buy
Yeah, now you’re stiller, still inside
Your practice is your guide to find a stiller, fuller
freer
Deeper insight

That it’s a stiller, stiller night
Your breath can free you more than anything
that you could buy
Yeah, now you’re stiller, still inside
