Kokia - Karma
Karma – I fall through the cycle of the same events that repeat over and over again.
Karma – this body is like a spiral; even if I am reborn, I will still continue wandering .
(Ah) (Bue) Peacefully, (Bue) Let’s bring this to the end with our own actions.
Karma – even now, when I’ve escaped from the wilderness of oblivion, I can’t remember.
Karma – whenever I pursue my memories, I always lose sight of my heart at the same place.
(Ah) (Bue) Unable to hold on to anything, (Bue) I’m drifting.
(Bue) Peacefully, (Bue) Let’s bring this to an end
With our own actions… good night.

Hollywood would have you think we all look like this:
Not only does no one look like this, but here’s what we really look like…
…And there are 566 different indigenous cultures in the continental US alone. With as much difference between us as the difference between Spain and Germany, or France and Ireland.
So yes it is kind of problematic, insofar as pretending we’re all a monolith of some kind…
