This song was inspired by the writing of Eckhart Tolle.



-----( Verse 1 )--------------------------
We all know how
to find the power of Now
The universe in condense
with all of it's subtle hints
The breath in your lungs
the white light of a million suns

So you made your own bed
and your ego's well fed
But how long can you stall
preparing for the fall
There's nothing to outlast
in a universe so vast
( A, A7 ) ( D, Bm ) ( E, A ) E

-----( Verse 2 )--------------------------
While you're thinking so fast
on regrets of the past
You find yourself
divided by two
Is it vu' ja' de',
or de' ja' vu'?

But you must fear not
and rise above your thought
It is here you will find
you are not your mind
According to Eckhart
it's in the beat of your heart

-----( Chorus )--------------------------
Herein lies
the core delusion
Which leads to so much
dang confusion

Just a tool to set down
when you're done
Still, the mind
will run, and run

So just let it go
Cause it's not what you're thinkin'
( E, A )// A7, D// ( A, Gb ) ( D, E ) A

-----( Verse 3 )--------------------------
Always one step behind
your routine is so well timed
But your eternal flame
has already been lit
It's not like a job
that you can quit

How can you fall
into the flow
With all of your
baggage in tow
Like a present moment fest
the Now is here at your request

( to chorus )
