A sho bottle, 3 sho bottles, a sho bottle, a sho bottle, no answers
Zen dialogue, Zen dialogue with Hideki Yoshimura. Zen dialogue, Zen dialogue, no answers
They exist, they exist

Twin reverb, Listening respectfully to the twin reverb. Twin Reverb, The twin reverb of Okazaki the cicada man
Ten tone scale, The ten tone scale of a Jazz Master. Twin reverb, twin reverb, no answers
None! No answers!

There are no answers, no shining marks either
The answer is not to ask: Sensei, am I crazy?
To seek answers is to essentially get nowhere

I understood… I had a feeling…

Sensei, who on earth are you?
Sensei, easy answers get me out of trouble
Sensei, who are you?
Sensei, who are you?
Sensei, who were you?
