"Live in the Moment" as written by and Moses Davis Sly Dunbar....
My home
Is a girl with eyes like wishing wells
I'm not alone
But I'm still lone, lonely
When I was young
Always go below the midnight sun
Those days are done
But I'm still glowing

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

My home
Is a girl who can't wait for time to tell
God only knows
We don't need history
When your family
Swinging from the branches of a tree
God only knows
We don't need ghost stories

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh I can't believe it
Nothing's gonna comfort me now

Ooh I can't believe it
Nothing's gonna comfort me now

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
A lie, oh well
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Ooh la la la la la
Let's live in the moment
Come back Sunday morning
With that soul to sell
When you're gone
Goodbye, so long, farewell

Oh my god I can't believe my eyes
Wake up everybody you know
Come and watch the garden grow
I'll see you when you get there

Oh my god I can't believe my eyes
Wake up everybody you know
Come and watch the garden grow
I'll see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there
I'll see you when you get there

    General CommentPortugal. The Man is not religious. They don't believe in the Bible and other nonsensical mythology, thus the lines:

    When your family
    Swinging from the branches of a tree
    God only knows
    We don't need ghost stories
    We are primates who evolved (swinging from the branches), not creatures made by some fictional deity. The Jesus myth is also dissed: "We don't need ghost stories."

    PTM recognizes the harm done by idiotic patriarchal monotheisms like Christianity, and they're declaring that they don't buy it. This theme is seen in other songs and lyrics, such as when they sing:
    Don't pray for us
    We don't need no modern Jesus
    To roll with us
    The only rule we need is never
    Giving up
    The only faith we have is faith in us.

    This song is clearly another rejection of religion -- we've all got much better things to do on Sunday morning than listen to lies and fiction from moronic preachers. Amen! (Pun intended.)
