Lyrics
It takes a lot of time to live in the moment
To become a thing of no thing
To bleed into emptiness
And be sucked into the cosmos
To reverse aging
And be born again into the arms
Of mother sucking at life
And infinitely charged an infant
It takes a lot of time to live in the moment
To believe without belief
To suffer without grief
To steal the riches without being a thief
By taking it all
The construct
The identity
The ego
And lighting it up with fluid and a match
And as it burns
Throw it to the cops of soul who catch
Arrest it and kick it back
Into the center of the sun
Burning out black hole teeth
Laughing and chewing the moment
It takes a lot of time to live in
As it takes a lot of time to live in the moment

Where dark is light
And blindness sight
And where wrong is right
And the day is night
And there is no more I, or you, or time
Or future
Or need to nickel and dime
Or skin
Or bones
Or thought of rhymes
Just the evil low-end buzz of consciousness fuzz
Blossoming rose to the nose of eternity eternal
And the vast never-was
Sucking all the fire from the old sun
And lighting up the new one
For the generations to come
Who have so much time to live in the moment
It takes a lot of time to live in the moment
