flesh to the crows lyrics – firstborn

contemplate the body
as a body.
ardent, fully aware and mindful
having put away all grief for the world.

aware
of breath, and of posture.
aware
internally, externally.

not clinging to anything in this world,
as this body too shall become flesh to the crows.

aware
of death and its nature.
aware
internally and externally.

contemplate the body
as a body.
ardent, fully aware and mindful’
having put away all grief for the world.

aware
of the body’s arising factors.
aware
of the body’s vanishing factors.
aware
of the body’s arising and vanishing factors.

impermanent, in sati.
suffering, in sati.
independent, in sati.

not clinging to anything in this world,
as this body too shall become flesh to the crows.
