Geddy Lee – The Present Tense lyrics
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past, the future makes no sense
Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame, no victim of consequence
Living in the present tense

Crawling out
Secure and confident
Embued with innocence
Ready for the world

Suddenly
The view was more intense
Living in a different kind of world

You're living
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past, the future makes no sense
Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame, no victim of consequence
Living in the present tense

Something is said
It made me step outside
The moment eyes pan left and right around my world

Open yourself
Up to the possibility
Aware of some reality
Outside your world

In a silent universe
The moment can be so real, you almost can't stand it
In a distant universe
Distracted from ourselves
You can't help but wonder
In a crowded universe
When the talking turns to noise, you almost start laughing

You're living
Living in the present tense
When you lose the past, the future makes no sense
Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame, no victim of consequence
Living in the present tense
When there's nothing to blame, no victim of consequence
Living in the present tense
Living in the present tense
