about

This song is about how life is too short. It is a dreamy, rambling song about how we would care more about the planet if we lived long enough to reap the consequences of our environmental abuse. The thesis of this song is that the longer we live the more long-term our ethic must be, and this ultimately leads to a state of enlightened harmony with the planet.

This song is also about getting out of your own way, and not letting the past hold you back and not being caught up in cycles of self-fulfilling prophecies.
"don't waste time worrying that you waste time"
"if you see, no future, there won't be one"
"yesterday don't give a fuck"
"impatiently, I am speeding nowhere"

Would we care more about the planet if we lived long enough to reap the consequences of our actions?
Would humans care more about the future of the planet, if human lives were more than a blip in planetary time?

Immortality will save the world!

lyrics

USED WORLD - from "Truth and Fun" by Eight Two

It's a used world
Eyes will close
Cruel world
Driven by users
Love for new shit
So they can toss it
It’s our only used world
It’s an abused world
Just let living be
It's a used world

Don’t waste time worrying that you waste time
If you see no future there won’t be one

Yesterday don’t give a fuck
If I cruised or passed that truck
When is when?
I'm tired of time
Impatiently I’m speeding nowhere

I’m only passing time passes me by I can only pass time
I’m only passing time passes me by I can only pass time
I’m only passing time passes me by I can only pass time
I’m only passing time passes me by I can only pass time

Immortality will save the world
Short lives make a fragile world
Longevity loves the land
Live your life like you will live twice
Long lives make paradise
It’s an abused world
Just let homeworlds be
Immortality can save the world
