Whichever way I look at it,
The present’s here to stay.
I’ve tried to prove it counterfeit
And shoo it on its way.

But living neither in the past
Nor in the days to come
Can change the fact it seems to last
Forever and then some.

And so I’ve sought to wean my mind
Off living by the clock.
The good thing is what’s left behind
Is solid as a rock.

It’s easy just to live for now,
At least it is when you know how.
