About the song
I wrote the music first and then I came up lyrics that fantasized about filming a person's entire 80-year life and watching it in ultrafast motion so the 80-year span passes as quickly as a dynamite explosion.
Lyrics
LIFE'S JUST A SINGLE BLAST
Music and lyrics by Paul Iorio
Copyright 2010

Watch the film of your entire life to
Play it back fast
So it only lasts a minute or two

Watch the film of your favorite day
Play it back slow
So it last 80 years to play

One moment
Is eternity
A life's just a single blast

Watch a film of a dynamite blast
Slow it down to see how long it'll last

Watch a film of your longest blues
Speed it up so it lasts as long as the morning dew
(or the evening dew)

One moment
Is eternity
A life's just a single blast

A lifetime's a single blast
A lifetime's a single blast
A lifeitme's a single blast

Life's just a blast
Life's just a blast
Life's just a blast
