When things are outta whack and they might collapse
And at the end of the day you still can't relax
And physically you ache like a cavity feelin' the bind
On your mind and the rest of your body
Listen to your heartbeat flow and imagine
Become Jackson Pollack air brush Chinese dragons
On a sky blue conversion van or an electra
Buick of the mind full of luminous matter
And slowly all the pressure recedes and you stop to decay
Naturally think clearly ultimately though your grace
Will give way to traffic jams
Submachine guns in hand
City red-necks who think like the omega man
Feelin' the extremes of the times we're livin'
Stockpile spaghetti-o's and cheerios
Plannin' to survive that fall-out shit 

It's not ambiguous it be continuous
It's all about us it's for real my man
The continuous life there is no end
Movin' through life movin' through death

It's not ambiguous it be continuous
It's all about us it's for real my man
The continuous life there is no end
Movin' through life movin' through death

My radio emits a signal form
A loud noise the kind of which I've never heard before
I scan the dial for more stations but all I get
Is an eerie feelin' I'm not dreaming' this is the real dealin
There's nothin like this trance I'm caught in a daze
'cause I'm finally out of my body the blue lights are ablaze
Yeah I'm really amazed and feelin' so light that's right
Lift off and I'm into the sky
As if a hologram were created to shift my consciousness
Changed again and I'm flung in the rift
I want to be free I want to do right
I move through the portal to be purified

It's not ambiguous it be continuous
It's all about us it's for real my man
The continuous life there is no end
Movin' through life movin' through death

It's not ambiguous it be continuous
It's all about us it's for real my man
The continuous life there is no end
Movin' through life movin' through death

When we shed the skin, we'd be continuous
Catch the feelin', you're for real
The continuous life, there is no end
Movin' through life, movin' through death
