"Today" as written by Joey Ramone, Dee Dee Ramone, Tommy Ramone and Johnny Ramone....
I'm a shock trooper in a stupor
Yes I am.

I'm a Nazi schatze
Y'know I fight for fatherland
Little German boy
Being pushed around
Little German boy
In a German town
Today your love, tomorrow the world

    Lyric CorrectionToday will not be happening
    We've come too far away from being to be at all
    We're putting the law back in your hands
    Today we're setting our sights for a new land
    Lean into me cuz there's no signs on the vehicle
    Look out and see cuz the city has no people
    They don't know who you are but they know who
    you will be
    Monsters of all colors and we're all distorted energy
    Pain looks on up at me
    And when I'm beat
    From the backseat I'll crash my car
    Incensed I feel like a fool when I'm feeling
    Right off this blossoming hurts like I'm peeling
    Oh God
    I can't be found when I'm dreaming
    Words hard
    I'm into the sound of their meaning
    I am divorced from the image I've created
    So many nights and days that are separate from the ages
    Thank you for the lessons that I learned while John was sleeping
    Whoever it seemed the Creator did the teaching

    General Comment"I can't be found when I'm dreaming"

    What a fantastic song. I love blasting this in my car. Some awesome guitar work by John, as usual.

    My InterpretationToday will not be happening
    We've come too far away from being to be at all
    - we have evolved with mind. Mind has been very successful at masking our being. Hence, we have come too far with Mind to have sense of being at all.

    We're putting the law back in your hands
    Today we're setting our sights for a new land
    - Reject the mind, move towards being

    Lean into me cuz there's no signs on the vehicle
    - You must feel this place, being. You cannot 'find' being by looking for it.
    Look out and see cuz the city has no people
    - I am unsure, but I interpret as the 'new land' or being doesn't have people, personification and form are subordinate at this level (hinted at below too, re energy)
    They don't know who you are but they know who
    you will be
    - Perhaps referring to mind-identified beings having a tendency to look to what you will be/bring in the future, rather than existing in and witnessing you, for who you are in the narrow and true time of 'now'
    Monsters of all colors and we're all distorted energy
    - Mind can manifest itself with many behaviours, morals, values etc (colors) - our essential nature (energy) is distorted by it
    Pain looks on up at me
    And when I'm beat
    From the backseat I'll crash my car
    - Mind is the source of all pain, we do it to ourselves, we're in the backseat when our mind (or pain) is in the driver seat.
    Incensed I feel like a fool when I'm feeling
    - When you feel pain, sometimes consider yourself foolish for feeling it
    Right off this blossoming hurts like I'm peeling
    - I think this refers to the awakening (blossoming) being like revealing new, fresh skin beneath, the stripping away of the old, dead skin.
    Oh God
    I can't be found when I'm dreaming
    Words hard
    I'm into the sound of their meaning
    - if one was into the meaning of the words, one would need to be of mind to consider them. Being can witness sensory inputs, but it is not concerned with their reasons
    I am divorced from the image I've created
    - To be divorced from ones image is to mean you do not identify with form (any more, because it is created). It is a key stage of witnessing your essential nature (being/'new world'), identification with your form (your mind, your body, your personality, something in the physical world) by it's very definition prevents you from transcending the physical to witness the unmanifested.
    So many nights and days that are separate from the ages
    - So much time (nights and days) is spent looking towards the past and present (ages) which are separate from the present, now and ultimately being/essential nature, through identifying with our mind images of the past and future.
    Thank you for the lessons that I learned while John was sleeping
    - John, refers to his form (mind, body, personality, 'him') that he no longer identifies with, such that he is able to transcend the physical realm
    Whoever it seemed the Creator did the teaching
    - Being (essential nature, 'new land', god) is the creator and teacher of love, peace and joy which was given thanks for in the previous line :)
