My past, my future, my disease
Perhaps collapse to make me seize
A moment just a breeze
Greatful, humble I allow
These words to be the past somehow
I wonder, am I here now
Am I here now
I feel, hear, see and it confuses me
I am wrong, I am here now
Is mine, I'll take it all around the world
Take my future past, it's fine, but now is mine

My precious present, will you bloom
To make this fourth dimension womb
Stop asking, stop asking why
All I know is all I am
Will never fully understand my breathing
I try, how I try to feel, hear, see and it confuses me
I am wrong, I am here now
Is mine, I'll take it all around the world
Take my future past, it's fine
But now is mine

    General Commentbeing a person who constantly worries about their past & future this song really appeals to me. It's not the positive, happy carpe-diem attitude - not that there's anything wrong with that, but I guess you either have it or you don't and if you're the kind who thinks about their own lives a lot you won't be able to decide to live for the moment.

    The song captures the moment when you realize that it's no use worrying about your future & your past too much, because you will live to see what the one is like and aren't able to change the other anyway. You won't be able to stop it completely, you will take up these thoughts again and again, but right now you are, for once, able to concentrate on the moment and forget about everything else. you can't even explain why it's happening right now but in the end you decide to appreciate it for as long as it lasts.

    General CommentI love this song! You know what you all should do? Play it REAL loud wearing a headphone. Then you can hear the strings on one side, and the guitar on the other... a great effect. (but I figure you guys already know that, hehe) GREAT SONG and BEAUTIFUL LYRICS!
