Love, child, reach, rise
Sight, blind, steal, light
Mind, scar, clear, fire
Clean, right, pure, kind
Sun, come, sky, tar
Mouth, sand, teeth, tongue
Cut, push, reach, inside
Feed, breathe, touch, come

No pain, no death, no fear, no hate
No time, no now, no suffering
No touch, no loss, no hand, no sense
No wound, no waste, no lust, no fear
No mind, no greed, no suffering
No thought, no hurt, no hands to reach
No knife, no words, no lie, no cure
No need, no hate, no will, no speech
No dream, no sleep, no suffering
No pain, no now, no time, no hear
No knife, no mind, no hand, no fear

Love! Now!
Breathe! Now!
Here! Now!
Here! Now!
Here! Now!

    My InterpretationI think the song is about life and death. The first and second verses juxtapose life against death, respectively. In the first we hear Gira listing off a bunch of random things, which at first seem senseless.

    "Cut, push, reach, inside
    Feed, breathe, touch, come"

    As the list goes on, the things seem more and more familiar, more and more like what we might do every single day. So repetitive and monotonous. At some point you might think "wow, look at all of these things I have to do, I'm getting kind of sick and tired of doing all these things every day". The thought seems enticing for a minute.

    In comes the second verse. Gira knows what you're thinking, and gives you just what you ask:

    "No pain, no death, no fear, no hate
    No time, no now, no suffering"

    It sounds nice for a minute. A reprieve. No hate, no suffering, no time, nothing to worry about, nothing to try to improve, nothing to fear. Sounds great, doesn't it? But wait...

    "No need, no hate, no will, no speech
    No dream, no sleep, no suffering
    No pain, no now, no time, no here"

    No anything. Nothing at all. But maybe you'll miss the struggles of life, the ups and downs. The pain and anger, just trying to make it through. Maybe these are the things that make life what it is. Life without any of these things would be, well, nothing at all. So Gira encourages us to live, while we're still alive:

    "Love! Now!
    Breathe! Now!
    Here! Now!
    Here! Now!
    Here! Now!"

    Pay attention, it will be gone soon enough.
