Anthem for Recovery Process

I have decided to have an Anthem for My Recovery Process, which I will hear and keep in mind every day. The song I found suits the purpose in both lyrics and sound. If you hear it, you'll notice that the first half of the song is fully rajasic (loud metal). The next half is traditional Indian music with an electric guitar as background and it gives a very sattvic effect. So, it's ideal for a person who wishes to get out of the tamasic state of mind.



Pathetic display of unjustified aggression
Killing of mortals in the name of religion
You kill your other self and you think it's God's will
Not knowing that you've been victimized by your false ego

Instead of fighting on the battlefields
Wage the war on the mental plane

Your mind is now misleading you
Enslaved in a cell of dogmatism

You call him Father, but are you a worthy child?
If He is so merciful, why are you so merciless?

All apparent dissension and conflicts will fade
into obscurity when you see the Unity behind this Diversity
With whom can you fight, if there's only One

Wage the war on the mental plane
Kill the ego, which breeds ignorance

Seek Shanti, Abide in Shanti
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

I was also thinking of having a sort of anti-anthem -- and one of the most obvious candidates seemed Californication by Red Hot Chili Peppers. There's also Hotel California, somewhere in the middle of the continuum.

This whole anthem thing came to me after I was just reminded of Napoleon Hill's hierarchy of human drives (sex came first, then came music). It won't hurt anyway, would it, so I decided to try it out. What do you say?
