      I was trying to say that the recurring theme of time recently is indicative of it. There are varying degrees of personal relativity to the passage of time. Yearning for the past and feeling the weight of years, feeling like it's dragging too slowly and you'll never get where you're wanting to go, slipping away too quickly, etc.

      It's not the worst of the recent songs, but it's not the best. It's just too musically and lyrically scant for my tastes.

      I've listened to this track several times a day since it appeared, and I'm still loving it. It's a great driving-on-a-sunny-day song (like Fatty, In the Future, All You Need is Me, Satan Rejected My Soul etc).

      It reminds me a little of 'Julie in the weeds' which I love. Nice little ditty. Although it sounds like the vocal was done in one take, and Moz just went 'next'

      thanks for posting this. are these lyrics official? i feel unable to hear "have you on the low", though it is an interesting take. i think the line was intentionally obfuscated. when you listen closely, you notice that it is sung differently each time. first time sounds a bit like "and have you, oh my lord!" and the last time like "and have you on the line/loin".

      i did, yes, my pleasure. thanks to you for using this serviceable but at the same time iridescent word in the other thread. i tend to lose track of all these threads, i have to say. somehow their titles all sound similar in a way, and i forget that i've once trod their paths.

      Irregardless of title, most threads eventuate into the same querulous discussions. Clearly some seek to be mollycoddled while others just bloviate. Your posts are never parlous and I look forward to them.

      Now that the topic "words" has come out, I dare to express my curiosity. I wonder if "wherever I'm going" makes reference to a geographical place, a state of mind, a personal situation or something else. I like this song because anxiety about how short is life is a universal concern and its music is very nice.

      interesting question, i first thought it to be a geographical location, like someone who (could that be) is travelling a lot and then all these places s/he visits become meaningless, comparable to the "home is a ?" theme. the other two options sound plausible too. i eventually came to the conclusion that the "wherever i'm going" is death: "
      For in that sleep of death what dreams may come

      When we have shuffled off this mortal coil
      ,
      Must give us pause. There’s the respect
      That makes calamity of so long life.

      so that person knows life is passing by quickly. "by the time.... there will be no time" indicates that if death is finally there, there won't be any more time to meet someone. i could be wrong here though.
      the other option is one of rejection, "by the time ... there will be no time" meaning that this person bears a grudge against someone and does not even hold out the prospect of seeing this person.
