The Only One celebrates the preciousness of life and embraces impermanence as our only real certainty. It suggests that we should live and do things right in the moment of now, rather than procrastinating and never accomplishing anything, in wait for an afterlife or another shot at it.

It proposes a controversial theory that we are all actually one universal entity with a shared quantum consciousness, and that we only exist in time and space through embodying a physical manifestation of that energy.

Lyrics

It’s over in a moment, a blinding flash of brilliance, a flash so insecure
We keep it safe and shackled, and hold it like a prisoner. Lamented and assured
Assured of brighter futures; assured of greater things ahead
Eventuality is nothing but a fiction, nothing but anomaly, so give it air to breathe
Just give it air now!

Cos you won’t be around forever, and you won’t be around til Kingdom Come
So just live here in this moment – The Only One

And we wait for love, and we break for love and find the only one is opening a door
As we fake for love, we erase the loving of the only one who’ll catch us where we fall

Cos we won’t be around forever, and we won’t be around til Kingdom Come
So we live here in this moment – The Only One
And when we understand this notion that everything that’s ever been will go
Our impermanence is only
The Only One

They won’t like it, that you’re The Only One, at all

Cos I won’t be around forever, yeah you won’t be around til Kingdom Come
So just live here in this moment – The Only One
And when we understand this notion that everything that’s ever been will go
Our impermanence is all we have
