I'm caught in too many directions and I'm trying so hard to show some love and affection but the situation has got me under suspicion I'm breaking no rules & needing no protection but it won't suffice, not to save her life No it won't suffice, not to save my life She cries and she cries and she cries tears from her eyes and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice and she cries and she cries and she cries every time and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice, no no no... Pain stricken for no reason at all and I'm blaming myself for dropping the ball Replying to her at her every beck and call still I can't stop the tears that fall No it won't suffice, not to save my life No it won't suffice, not to save my life She cries and she cries and she cries tears from her eyes and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice and she cries and she cries and she cries every time and I try and I try and I try; it never suffice Don't believe everything that they're telling you (Why me?) because I never do those things to make you feel so blue (Why me?) You got to believe in the love that we have together is true (Why me?) because I never do those things to make you feel so blue (Why you?) I'm caught in too many directions and I'm trying so hard to show some love and affection but the situation has got me under suspicion I'm breaking no rules & needing no protection but it won't suffice, not to save my life No it won't suffice, not to save her life but I cry and I cry and I cry tears from my eyes and she tries and she tries and she tries; it never suffice and I cry and I cry and I cry every time and she tries and she tries and she tries; it never suffice

Chorus: Reincarnation Starting it over again If you don't finish what you started then you have to be born again Reincarnation The cycle will never end If you don't finish what you started then you have to be born again Verse 1: Here I am back again My Karma's got me a new skin Tell me will I lose? Tell me will I win? It all depends on the life I spend 'Cause I'm not really of this world The situations I find myself in Now it's time for I-n-I to break the chain so that I can be released again I've got to know myself Keep seeking the light Knowledge overstanding Become eternal light Liberation freedom & forget all the strife without all the illusion your future is bright See for yourself & follow your path Seek the truth 'cause that's all you have Count your blessings you must do the math & you will learn the facts (Chorus) Verse 2: Yes the mystic shall rise again You'll be looking for the Christ within & then the revolution begins & you'll never be afraid of sin Living for the purpose of life When you center & you focus your mind Your purpose is to join the divine & all of the mountain you climb You've got to seek for yourself & find out the truth To know the tree you must know the root You never finish 'til your journey is through Yes, there's many lessons for you Seek the light & follow the path Stay with your vision 'cause that's all you have Count your blessings you must do the math & There's no turning back (Chorus)
