Now’s all we’ve got
So stop thinking about the other day and someday
Or your mind will rot
In a fetid, decaying pot
Nothing is ever really just as it seems
Don’t let your short life unravel at the seams
Hold yourself together with sheer will and spit if you have to
Whatever you do, hold the fuck on!
It’s never, ever an easy ride
It was never meant to be, ya know?
Take a picture of this now
It’ll serve as your memory in the afterlife
Make it your absolute best damned shot
Your aim ought to be to leave here in better shape than when you first came
This is the NOW life
For fuck’s sake, live it NOW!
Your afterlife comes once you’ve mastered your million nows.
