Lauren Mayer How Can I Stay In The Moment (When The Moment Sucks)? 

Life can sometimes be a process And the process isn't always fun You keep finding new crap to get through And you wish that you were done You won’t give into despair yet, Tho you wanna yell, Are we there yet? But you grit your teeth, stick out your chin And throw more cliché phrases in Trying to stay serene when things are in flux But how do you stay in the moment - when the moment sucks Angst isn’t just for teenagers Though that’s what the songs seem to say But when things don’t make sense and pressure’s immense adults can get tense, okay? When nothing we know seems valid Where's our power ballad To rant and rave and the way kids do We can wave through windows too Trying to express the stress from life's messy fights Cause how do you stay in the moment – when the moment bites Cause there’s no point in whining Or pining for a silver lining? So you rearrange and say you've changed Tho it’s hard not to get downhearted When you end up back where you started My own mind doesn't mind me Making my head a strange place to dwell With thoughts that can be vicious or weirdly suspicious Or just repetitious as hell It might help my self-possession If we could change this chord progression Dn't mean to sound insincere - so here is the crux How do you show what feeling low meant When there is so much angst and foment How do you stay in the moment when the moment sucks Whoah, wish someone understood Whoah- (that felt really good!) How do you stay in the moment when the moment sucks!
