Everything flows in an endless stream
And if we close our eyes
Like a vision or a dream

We'll see this world in it's myriade ways:
Everything flows and every single minute
Brings a change to the earth and to everybody in it -
Watch a million lives playing out their days.

People at this very time
Are making many things-that's
That's so:
But fools are in command.

In the desert rockets point
Towards the stars: in sleazy bars
Someone's getting drunk and ugly:
On the city sidewalks hustlers
Pick their prey: far away.
Bodies bake on surfing beaches.

Tonight
Today
Feel it all going
On-all this moment's different strands of life:
Tonight
Today
We're a part of it all

Though we're on our own and making love.

Everything flows - Nixon's called a meeting:
There's a massive demonstration
And some kids are getting beaten up
In time to make tomorrow's first editions:
Yeah
There's striptease shows

While at Buckingham Palace
They're working out the seating plans for Jackie and Onassis
And in Kalamazoo there's two boys fishing.

People at this very time
Are making many things-that's
That's so:
Speeches and sailing-boats and scenes

While kids in faded jeans
Sit cross-legged in the park:

In a Roman night-club Carlo
Stuffs his mouth
Further south
Dino dines on left-out garbage:
In a jungle hospital
A mother sighs
Baby cries
New arrival in the life-stream.
