Lyrics/Song Structure: ===================== ---> Play Riff 1 (x2) ---> Play Riff 1 over:
When things are outta whck and they might collapse And at the end of the day you still can't relax And physically, you ache like a cavity Feeling the bind of your mind and the rest of your body Listen to your heartbeat, flow and imagine Become Jackson Pollack, airbrush Chinese dragons Or a sky-blue conversion van or an electra Buick of the mind full of luminous matter---> Play Riff 2 over:
And slowly all the pressure recedes and you stop to decay Naturally, think clearly Ultimately through your grace will give way to traffic jams Submachibe guns in hand City rednecks who think like the Omega Man Feelin' the extremes of the times we're livin' Stockpile Spaghetti-O's and Cheerios Tryin' to survive that fallout shit---> Play Riff 3 over:
It's not ambiguous to be continuous It's all about us, it's for real my man The continuous life, there is no end Movin' through life, movin' through death---> Play Riff 1 (x1)---> Play Riff 1 over:
My radio emits a signal for A strange noise the kind of which I've never heard before I scan the dial for more stations But all I get is an eerie feelin' I'm not dreamin', this is the real dealin'---> Play riff 2 over:
There's nothing like this trance, I'm caught in the daze Cuz I'm finally out of my body The blue lights ablaze, yeah I'm really amazed And feelin' so light, that's right Lift off and I'm into the sky As if a hologram were created to shift my consciousness Changed again and I'm flung in the riff I wanna be free, I wanna do right I move through the portal to be purified---> Play Riff 3 over:
It's not ambiguous to be continuous It's all about us, it's for real my man The continuous life, there is no end Movin' through life, movin' through death It's not ambiguous to be continuous It's all about us, it's for real my man The continuous life, there is no end Movin' through life, movin' through death---> Play Bridge---> Play Ending over: It's not ambiguous to be continuous It's all about us, it's for real my man The continuous life, there is no end Movin' through life, movin' through death
