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
