Liner Notes: 

40 Rod was practicing for our gig next month, but at the end of the night, just before everyone unplugged, I said, "Now make something up!" This is what happened. I put down the vocal after practice. A song about the ephemeral nature of music and life.

Ben from Hell - drums
Chuck - bass
Jon @Blumenkraft - lead guitar
Brian @8String - lap steel guitar
tom @plainwhitetoast - vocal and (mostly inaudible) rhythm guitar

Lyrics: 

while we've got the time, let's take it
because this only exists while we make it
what tomorrow brings is certainly uncertain
no one knows what's behind the final curtain
while we've got the time, let's take it
this only exists while we make it

while we've got the time, let's take it
because this only exists while we make it
we've got right now, let's not forget it
this could be our last, we don't want to regret it
we only get right now
we only get right now

we only get right now
we only get right now
while we've got the time, let's take it
because this only exists while we make it
yes, this only exists while we make it

i feel like im back at the fillmore in 1968, where i saw and heard cream for the first time, this is a wild psychedelic jam turned into a major song. right from the drums things are kicking hard, and those vocals are like operatic garage. .just like cream, a short vocal verse leading into a long jam then back for a second verse to tie it all together,

I really like your voice, raspy yet soft, aggressive but sweet. The heavy rock of the song is incredible. Congrats

Cool how drums and bass thunder along in the verse. Nice jam and your voice sounds good
