Song: Enjoy It While It Lasts – “Make the most of whatever”
Seems like it's too early for me to put a mid-life crisis in a song, but I guess this easily qualifies as one: that moment when you look at your life and figure, hey, didn't I want to make a little more out of this? Not exactly world domination, but, you know, something a little more meaningful than the nine-to-five grind and watching TV, that kind of thing.
After thinking about it at length, I've decided there are more important things in life than doing important things. It's just a ride, after all! (Paging Bill Hicks...)
Also in this song: a return to purely a cappella music. I'm suspecting I won't be doing this a lot anymore, but it definitely was nice to do something like this again. A lot of work, too, but what took the longest time by far was taking the title I got from this round of Circle of Titles and turning it into something that's kind of genuine.

You say you've heard of work-life balance And you don't see the difference... You say you're aching to make it okay some day But where to start, you ask It's such a daunting task Well I don't know but where there's a will, there's a way Or so they say In any case Keep on going on being here We're all caught up in our pasts And the future's near, paralyzed in fear Just one thing works while nothing's clear Take it as it comes And enjoy it while lasts While it lasts While it lasts, while it lasts While it lasts, while it lasts Take it as it comes And enjoy it while it lasts In the wastelands of confusion We cling to that illusion Of the one and only path we need to go, and it's so slow Throw our lives under the bus Give it all that, raise no fuss Til eventually, maybe, we can be happy But don't you see You got to Keep on going on being right here We're all caught up in our pasts And the future's so near, paralyzed in fear Just one thing works when nothing's clear Take it while it's here And enjoy it while it lasts While it lasts, while it lasts While it lasts, while it lasts Take it as it comes And enjoy it while it lasts
