Vedder Tuesday ⅩⅩⅩⅤ: Present Tense

It's a good lesson, the temporal positioning.  We remember our pasts.  We formulate our futures.  We live our presents.

Do you see the way that tree bends?
Does it inspire?
Leaning out to catch the sun's rays --
A lesson to be applied
Are you getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets;
Or you can, come to terms and realize
You're the only one who can forgive yourself
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense

Have you ideas on how this life ends?
Checked your hands and studied the lines?
Have you the belief that the road ahead ascends off into the light?

Seems that needlessly it's getting harder
To find an approach and a way to live
Are we getting something out of this all encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets;
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who cannot forgive yourself

Makes much more sense to live in the present tense
