    (if you renounce everything- including renunciation - you're sort of back where you started - but sort of not...)
    Renunciation
    ©2014 Don Nelson
    It’s a balancing act on a tightrope wire - just to hold back from fear and desire
    You gotta keep on trying every day – just to keep your eyes on the middle way
    Be moderate in all things – including moderation
    Renounce everything - and then renounce Renunciation!
    Somebody told me it’s a noble truth – that there’s no refund on misspent youth
    Whatever goes “boom” must go bust – everything will turn to dust
    The only way to deal with this situation
    Is renounce everything – and then renounce Renunciation
    Old Man Death with his bones and scythe – one of these days he’s gonna claim your life
    No use trying to cop a plea – he don’t give a shit about you or me
    But until the day of your final disintegration
    Renounce everything - and then renounce Renunciation
    Buddha sitting under the Bodhi Tree – he had a few choice words about reality
    If you want to get through sorrow and strife - Make this your goal for the rest of your life
    Forget about heaven and liberation
    Just renounce everything - and then renounce Renunciation
    It’s a balancing act on a tightrope wire - just to hold back fear and desire
    You gotta keep on trying every day – just to keep your eyes on the middle way
    Be moderate in all things – including moderation
    Renounce everything - and then renounce Renunciation
    Do you renounce Satan? (we do renounce him)
    And all his works? (we do renounce them)
    God and his minions? (we do renounce them)
    Public opinions? (we do renounce them)
    Name and Fame? (we do renounce them)
    Loss and Gain? (we do renounce them)
    We do renounce this – we do renounce that – we do renounce this – we do renounce that….
    You can save yourself a lot of frustration
    Just renounce everything and then renounce Renunciation!
