"In the Now" as written by Tim Kasher, Matthew Ryan Maginn and Ted James Stevens....
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know

We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell
We're wearing out our heels
On a road to hell

While history repeats
The present won't repent
So history repeats
Cus present won't repent
So history repeats
Cus present won't repent
Repeat repeat repeat

Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now
Don't wanna know what I know
Don't wanna live in the now

    General CommentIf anyones interested, there was some more...writing/comentary I guess you would call it in between these lyrics in the cd booklet. Actually, there was commentary in between quite a few of the songs, but I'm too lazy to post them all and I thought these were most relevant. Here is what it looks like. (from this point on it will be exactly what it looks like in the lyric booklet unless it's in parentheses)

    Mama, I'm swollen.

    I wrote this little poem about you. Well, It's about you and me, I guess.

    I don't want to live in the now.
    I don't want to know what I know.

    It's pretty basic. I was saying it over and over to myself on the way to the store when I ran into the most irate man in the parking lot. He was old, his hair scraggly grey, his teeth rotted yellow. He kept pounding his fist on a phonebook, screaming about 'End of Days'... I started thinking since the poem is so short, I could add this line-

    We're wearing out our heels
    on a road to Hell.

    So, I guess that's an ode to him. Now, I guess the poem is about you, me and how that crazy guy kinda scared the shit out of me. 'End of Days' makes life seems so linear, but I know and you know it's not. It's circular. (---history is writted, then crossed out---) -wait a sec-

    While History repeats, the Present won't repent.
    So, History repeats, 'cause Present won't repent.
    So, History repeats, 'cause Present won't repent. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat.

    There-I think that's it. It's about You, Me, the Phone-Book Beater, and living in circles. That last part was kind of off the top of my head...

    General CommentThe demo version with alternate lyrics is pretty damn good as well. I haven't figured out which one I like better though I'm leaning towards the demo version. It's a bit more subdued in the beginning. Bought the CD today and downloaded the songs they give you just now.

    It's obvious what the song is about though. I think it's about somebody who would rather be ignorant about the things he knows now because ignorance is bliss oftentimes. But the thing - the Catch 22 - is that history repeats itself if you don't learn from your mistakes.

    General Commentthis song rocks, and yeah, it's pretty obvious what it is about - life is just a second of present time and we have nothing to do with it, it just the way it goes and we have to accept it and try make something of our time. Or not to try - everybody chooses themselves.
