Lyrics to "Present Tense"

Do you see the way that tree bends?
Does it inspire?
Leaning out to catch the sun's ray
A lesson to reapply
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 can't forgive yourself, Oh
Makes much more sense
To live in the Present Tense...

Have you ideas on how 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
And approach...Ain't no way to live
Are we 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 can't forgive yourself, Oh
Makes much more sense
To live in the Present Tense...
~Eddie Vedder
