  • What ya gonna do when the light slips from your eyes?
    And what will you keep bar the penny in your fist for the tide?
    Become the joke because you can't let go
    You suffer hurt because you can't let go

    Give the penny to the boatman, see he guides you well
    Reflect upon the water as you reflect upon yourself
    This river always will be here
    Always rushing here, all traces disappear

    So
    As equanimity shows
    To try and stay in control
    And not fall apart
    Slow
    The ataraxy will grow
    As the shepherd has shown
    Gentleness and kindness
    Is what our world needs now
    Find it in my heart somehow
    Oh
    Yeah, you know

    This river always will be here
    Always rushing here, all traces disappear

    And soon
    Equanimity blooms
    Giving scent to the room
    You might not have noticed
    Ah, and so
    Some self control
    Might save the day
    Which is worth saving
    It's what our world needs now
    Let's find it in our hearts somehow
    You know
    Yeah, you know Writer/s: Paul John Weller
