Where each atom meditates
Silence reigns supreme
There’s our* home
In the Himalayas
Where the leaf deer** springs
And a 100 million year gecko*** ticks
There’s our home
In the Himalayas
Where I become one with the leaves
And fly in the moist air to my heart’s content
There’s our home
In the Himalayas
But lately we feel the atoms quaking
As your piercing eyes have found us out
Will our Paradise be lost?
But WE were not disobedient
