Lyrics
NIKKI BOY He came here from far to the east Noble birth lit his way, Sprung from the Mon he climbed the plateau Mount Kailash from its mysteries and magic he came. To this spiritual lad known as Arhat (Ar het) Mankind his mission became A fire was lit, his spirit made fit The alchemist of Meru, he met his gaze. Both Emperors and Kings sought his dreams, his council helped Light their way He said,The Dharma you seek, in meditation deep On this path you'll find your way. This enchanting lad upon Satan he came He asked him, with love, wont you come out and play, Lets run with the wind, you can give up on sin but Satan he laughed and turned away (Chorus) Run me Laddie, run my boy, This child of love, this child of joy You stand with the broken, you stand with the lost Your smile helps light their way, Nikki Boy lights their way. Abram had visions at war with his faith, Idol Maker his fathers trade Arhat Stood by him and with his bright grin, Said Father Abraham let the true 1 light your way. They meditated all day, until the moon met their gaze, Abraham saw his path, his enlightenment ablaze Born that day, many nations he raised Mankind's song sounded the coming of days. Moses he struggled and lost his way His destiny weighed heavy each day, Arhat pointed on high, and they climbed Sinai Moses received God's word on that day This lad, this sage, spoke of The Ingratitude of Man The 4 noble truths and The Eightfold Path, Moses looked upon him, and finally understood his sin On Mount Nebo Moses ended his days. (Chorus) Run me laddie, run my boy You touch mankind with your zen like joy Bring mankind to know love and good faith They will laugh and sing your praise, Nikki Boy will light your way Ahasverus, The cobbler, doomed to wander cursed till the end of days, Arhats vision for him, learn from where you've been In redemption through dharma your salvation may lay Through centuries of travel to The west he's come, He's found Mankind to be sick, decay and disease in its grip in visions to the powerful, came apocalyptic sorrows ignorance and greed now, and nothing tomorrow In dreams he met with them all, in a great hall He asked them with love, wont you come out and play We can run with the wind, you can give up on sin, But like Satan of old, they laughed and turned away. To Nikki Boy it seems clear, Humanity's in fear Far from the Dharma, Mankind seems lost, But With a smile and a wink, he knows joy and sorrow Are linked, in dharma a new path will light our way. his love will guide our way. (Chorus) Run me laddie, run my boy your gift to mankind, is a karma of joy Bring mankind to know love and good faith We will laugh and sing your praise, Nikki Boy will light our way... (Chorus) Run me Laddie, run my boy, This child of love, this child of joy you've gone to the angels, on their wings you now play Yet Your smile still lights our way, Nikki Boy still lights our way. (Chorus) Run me Laddie, run my boy, This child of love, this child of joy you've gone to the angels, on their wings you now play Yet Your smile still lights our way, Nikki Boy still lights our way.
