Momentum

Synopsis

The buddhists have this analogy: The numerous thoughts we have every second is like having monkeys jumping from branch to branch... They describe the restless, agitated, incessant movement of the mind... This song talks about the importance of being in the present moment. Taming the monkey mind. It is when we are in the present moment that we can find the momentum to go higher, further and to be happier.

Lyrics

MOMENTUM

4"22 (Bastien Picot)

The moment is now but you can’t get enough
The moment is fierce but you feel it so rough
Your mind is on the next step, please
Don’t focus on the next step

Can’t you see the apes rocking,
Can’t you see them all chatting,
All you got is more than enough
Seize the day and you’ll get it!Can’t you see it is time
To tame monkey in your mind
All you got is more than enough
Seize the day and you’ll get it:

Momentum

The moment is now and the climax is loud
The moment is screaming but you can’t hear its sound
Your mind is on the next step, oh please,
Don’t focus on the next step, no

Can’t you see the apes rocking,
Can’t you see them all chatting,
All you got is more than enough
Seize the day and you’ll get it!
Can’t you see it is time
To tame monkey in your mind
All you got is more than enough
Seize the day and you’ll get it:

Tame the monkeys in your mind
Tame the monkeys in your mind and you will find the Momentum !
