“Present Tense” Pearl Jam

Do you see the way that tree bends?
Does it inspire?
Leanin’ out to catch the sun’s ray
A lesson to be applied
Are you getting something out of this
All-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets, oh
Or you can come to terms and realize
You’re the only one who cannot forgive yourself, oh
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense

Have you an idea 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 gettin’ harder
To find an approach and a way to live
Are we gettin’ something out of this
All-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone
Redigesting past regrets, oh
Or you can come to terms and realize
You’re the only one who cannot forgive yourself, oh
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense
