Stars are out there, many, everywhere, all the time.
Try not to think about this all the time.
Those stars, they’re everywhere, even in us, all the time.
Don’t be stupid about this. Try not to think about this all the time.
If it’s important to you where Space ends, you may not
Be picking up the clothes you always drop on the floor,
For someone else to pick up. Learn to pick up, all the time.
Mountains change, rivers change, weather changes,
Volcanoes are still erupting, it’s colder some days.
Why is this so hard to understand? Don’t think about it.
We can’t remember everything that’s happened. That’s
Why we always mess things up. That’s not hard, is it?
Don’t be stupid. Another person is a person to appreciate.
You can’t appreciate only those who look and act like you.
This isn’t hard, but don’t be so afraid. Take a deep breath.
Stop doing that. Whatever it is you are doing, stop that.
Why are you this old and you are still acting like that.
This isn’t hard, it just takes practice. Don’t think about it.
Of course, we are water. It goes in every day. We wash up.
We wash what’s dirty. We are in awe of its beauty.
If you don’t know that, wade in, go under, hold your breath.
Stop asking for applause. Do what you need to do well.
What’s hard to understand about that? Are you still that needy?
The best line of that movie was Will it help? So stop worrying.
When has worrying ever helped you to get things straight?
We are all here, standing line. You can’t make us go away
Like that. Stop blathering so. You look silly doing that.
Are you a busy person? Nothing to admire there.
Everything else in the cosmos is not busy, but it’s there.
Staying busy will tire you out. Take a 2-minute time out.
Are you feeling any better? You know, there are no truths.
I know that’s hard, but get used to it. Don’t think about it
Ever again, just try doing everything you’ve done, better, that’s all.
