Go On Alone!

Swami Kriyananda
January 1, 1980

Sung by Swami Kriyananda, in a concert in Germany approx. 1980.

Lyrics:

Some men call it progress—

Down with those who doubt!—

To join the causes others join,

And shout when others shout.

Come, you’re a man,

No passive stone!

Stand up, and call your soul your own!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Banish weakness: Go on alone!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Don’t look back! just go on alone!

 

Some men lack the daring

Ever to be free!

They shun the heights, and crowd the depths,

And court security.

Come, you’re a man,

No passive stone!

Stand up, and call your soul your own!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Banish weakness: Go on alone!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Don’t look back! just go on alone!

 

Cowards see but pride in Singularity,

“Oh, never mind if men are wrong,

So long as they agree!”

Come, you’re a man,

No passive stone!

Stand up, and call your soul your own!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Banish weakness: Go on alone!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Don’t look back! just go on alone!

 

Claim the power within you

Error to defy!

The world may change or disappear,

But truth can never die!

Come, you’re a man,

No passive stone!

Stand up, and call your soul your own!

Go on alone! Go on alone!

Banish weakness: Go on alone! Go on alone!

Go on alone! Don’t look back! just go on alone!
