Aimee Mann - Momentum Lyrics




Oh, for the sake of momentum
I've allowed my fears to get larger than life
And it's brought me to my current agendum
Whereupon I deny fulfillment has yet to arrive

And I know life is getting shorter
I can't bring myself to set the scene
Even when it's approaching torture
I've got my routine

Oh, for the sake of momentum
Even though I agree with that stuff about seizing the day
But I hate to think of effort expended
All those minutes and days and hours
I have frittered away.

And I know life is getting shorter
I can't bring myself to set the scene
Even when it's approaching torture
I've got my routine

But I can't confront the doubts I have
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I'm condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

When I can't confront the doubts I have
I can't admit that maybe the past was bad
And so, for the sake of momentum
I'm condemning the future to death
So it can match the past.

    I hate all hipsters with an indescribable passion, but tech hipsters are the worst kind of hipster. It's like saying the worst kind of murderer, but they are truly the most insufferable, void of personality, and ethically bankrupt people.

    Erik Frost

    Roscoe sands Roscoe sands Never got the hate for “hipsters” and in fact I truly hate the term overall. Some of these people that could be considered “hipsters” are obnoxious, condescending, and at times pretentious but that’s only a small fraction of them. Nowadays if you have a beard or wear a cool jacket or happen to not like pop music and instead are a fan of obscure indie generally, all of a sudden society deems you a hipster and some random jerks now hate you. It makes no sense. Just let people like what they want, dress how they want, and live how they want as long as its not hurting someone else’s rights

    Liam Fitzpatrick

    wtf are tech hipsters?

  9. Cromwell

    Très belle musique, merci

  10. Neil Merschbrock

    my theme today

  11. Nirmal MN

    Whenever I listen to this song, I usually blast it at full volume while I snort some cocaine to finally get the police banging on my door.

    Aaron Burress

    What the fuck.

    Nirmal MN

    Tobi T-Rekt It's a reference to the scene from Magnolia.

    Ogami0Itto

    Hopefully you get a nice understanding officer wearing a thigh uniform my friends.. she ll be back later on..... sit on your bed and then create one of the best movie ending of all time...period

    poisonforlunch

    well did they bang on your door?

    ahuffman

    @Ogami0Itto you made this comment two years ago but I have to respond. My God you are so on the money. When she turns and looks at the camera that smile just takes your breath away.

  12. f4rt

    I love Aimee Mann and Nietzsche! I hate inappropriate arguments. I guess I am ambivalent! Rock On Aimee!

    f4rt

    Joe G

    Most underrated comment

    @f4rt i really didn't understand the comment. I know Nietzsche but i am not much familiar with aimee mann
    If this is a really good comment i wanna know why please help

  16. Sam Potter

    Ah, have to love the pedantic bickering about stuff like Nietzshe. Pretentiousness at it's finest.

    Awesome!

  19. Jem S

    And this will all make sense...in the end.

  20. Big Kahuna

    As soon as the music starts, I hear, "Now what I'm going to do is, I'm going to read a line to you from an opera. I want you to give me that line back in the language in which the opera was originally written. And for a bonus two-fifty...you can SING IT!"

    But I'm not singing Carmen.

    Кевином Martell

    and this all will make snese,..... at the end.

    But feelings aren't switches that you can flip on and off. True, you may be ambivalent towards someone/something, but you are only ambivalent because you both love and hate them/it. Ambivalence would describe feelings that you already have, while love and hate are themselves feelings. The feelings coexist, they do not alternate.

    Flammiedrum

    Tell that to a bi-polar; your interpretation is simplistic at best, medically inaccurate at worst.

  23. Kirk Divizio

    experimental films are cool.

  24. kyle dominic

    You're a funny guy.

  25. nicholas byrne

    One of the best songs of all time.

  26. Mitchell Richters

    You can love something or someone for one reason and hate something or someone for an entirely different reason. You might like a cupcake but hate the sugar content in which it has. Perfectly logical.

  27. Akytom

    Things fall down, people look up and when it rains it pours.

  28. hocuspocusfocusable

    one of my all time favorite films...I think it's Cruise's finest moment...and he worked for scale. Anderson is brilliant.

  29. the impractical transhumanist

    Aimee Mann's been rocking for a long time now!
