eventually, all at once, we each exist when we eat.
eventually, all at once, each realize we're existing.

this is the new space i've taken up in.
this is the new space i'm offering
you to live in through me.
turn it on, turn it all off, and take me up on my offer.

eventually, all at once, we are each extinguished
and we may not recognize it then when it's happening,
so we deal with it now, try to make 'now' more 'now'

and understand understanding
is understanding not understanding? [x4]

    General Commentthis is pretty simple, yet not simple. I think thats the meaning. Is understanding not understanding? Life is like that. We think we know something, but its just a perspective. Everyone is right, everyone is wrong. There is no right or wrong. Take it for what it is, the moment.

    General CommentThere's a nine minute video of him playing this song, and he sings the last line for over 7 minutes. It's kinda funny. But this song is amazing and I always thought that he said "can't understand understanding, is understanding not understanding" That made much more sense to me than what he actually says, but oh well. Whateva.

    General CommentI always thought of the last line as being all together. Like he's saying that people need to understand that the only way to understand things is to understand that we can't understand things. That makes the most sense to me..
