...

What do you want?

... to make each moment creative. ...

I'm the mystery's final page ...

I'm the stranger's lonely glance.

...

I'm the world you'll never see.
I'm the slave you'll never free.

"... time has run out for all those who wait ..."

And every pulse of your heartbeat is one liquid moment
That flows through the veins of your being.
Like a river of life flowing on since creation
Approaching the sea with each new generation,
You're now just a stagnant and rancid disgrace
That is rapidly drowning the whole human race.

"We want to be free! We want to be free to do what we want to do! We want to be free to ride. And we want to be free to ride our machines without being hassled by The Man. And we want to get loaded. And we want to have a good time! And that’s what we’re gonna do. We’re gonna have a good time. We’re gonna have a party!"

The Wild Angels
1966, dir Roger Corman
