Way down deep in the land of Bongo-Bongo
Missionaries arrived
But were headed off in their show
The tribesmen had a tale to tell
Of events three-thousand years ago:

‘The great God Umbumtibiikus
‘Was born as one amongst us
‘Dying for our sins
‘Leaving his tale in our trust
‘Now it’s time to share with you
‘Save your tribe and whole world too’

The missionaries fell laughing
At this funny little show
‘These silly pygmy people
‘Oh what they don’t know
‘The world so vast
‘Beyond their grasp
‘As if the great creator God
‘Would choose the land of Bongo-Bongo!’

Way down deep in the land of Bongo-Bongo
A mirror for our minds
To reflect upon what we know
Way down deep in the land of Bongo-Bongo
Way down deep in the land of Bongo-Bongo

Consciousness is
For if consciousness is not
You’re not really reading this
And we’ve tied ourselves in a knot!

Consciousness is
But consciousness is what?
It’s foundational and encompassing
Consciousness is all we’ve got!

Matter is
In Consciousness it seems
To speak of it outside
Whatever could that mean?

The self is
In consciousness too
Myself and yourself
Are one not two

Consciousness is
Always was and will be
From its eternal eye
Nothing shall ever be free

What is the nature of this consciousness
In which we arise?
Look in deep
You might get a surprise
