Take everything / have nothing.
Have everything / mean nothing.
Mean everything / be nothing.
Be everything = you are A no thing.

Dance everything / applaud to nothing.
Applaud everything / silence nothing.
Silence everything / God bless the nothing.
Bless every thing = you are A no thing.

Say everything / hear nothing.
Hear everything / sound nothing.
Sound everything / silence nothing.
Silence everything / every thing.

each. 1. Single. Tiniest. Thing.
STOP. MOVING. STOPS.
