Life goes up and remembers forward
Starts right there in the ground.
An ant, a worm, a disgusting bug
Buddy, you’ve been around.
And each life time
You remembered up
Like a funnel pointing skyward
On a coffee cup
Life remembers forward and
Life goes up.
Ants have no memory of humans or birds
Can’t remember being a cow and living in herds.
Don’t recall being an alligator
Lawd, we hate to but sooner or later
Life remembers forward
Ain’t no going back.
And life goes up ’til it comes back down
That is just a fact.
