Letters To Cleo – Here And Now lyrics

Just living on a sunday morning,
Got my toast and tea and I'm warm and I
Just thought I'd think about all the things to get and keep getting,
Never enough not enough and never ending.
I just thought I'd think about.
And it might be...
The comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky above
Could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the here and now.
Parody of yourself in color,
Giving it to everybody but your mother.
You've got much to think about, soaring higher with every treason.
Never justify, never reason.
You've got much to think about.
And it just might be...
[The fast part again.]

    A lot of people think this song is about the value of living in the here and now, but I actually think it's about how that screws up your priorities. She's contemplating (i just thought I'd think about) whether (and it might be) the comfort you get from living your life with the values to achieve afterlife (the comfort of a knowledge of a rise above the sky above) is weaker than the urge of instant gratification from acquiring more stuff (all the things to get, and keep getting - not enough, never enough, and never ending) in the here and now (could never parallel the challenge of an acquisition in the here and now). That the growing rush you get from living just for today (soaring higher with every treason) causes you to do things that go against your values (never jusified and never reason). The message is non-judgmental, just "think about it". Imho.
