Lyrics/Song Structure:

======================

---> Play Intro (x4)

---> Play Intro over:

Nick:

A day like today is for you

To let your mind unwind like you ought to

Feel the earth turn 'round when your heart rate slows

Contemplating the thing only your heart knows

That life's not a race

---> Play Chorus (Guitar 1) over:

SA:

So hard to believe

Part of me will fade

In the mystery

---> Play Chorus (Guitars 1 & 2) over:

In a future world

Long ago

Part feels for your love

And lives to tell you so

---> Play Solo 1 over Intro

---> Play Intro over:

Nick:

The world whirls around your mind in a golden spiral

The natural way that things organize

You can't stop the entropy so why even try

Observe the conscious flow and don't mystify

Life's not a race

---> Play Chorus (Guitar 1) over:

SA:

So hard to believe

Part of me will fade

In the mystery

---> Play Chorus (Guitars 1 & 2) over:

In a future world

Long ago

Part feels for your love

And lives to tell you so

---> Play Solo 2 Over Intro

---> Play Fill 1 over:

Nick:

Slippin' into a trance

A chance encounter in the autumn

What do I see an opportunity

And then, I got 'em

Sought a chill-out mix to

Carve some space

To make you wanna listen

It's a bubblin' spring and

Double in kings of this Soundsystem

---> Play Chorus (Guitar 1) over:

SA:

So hard to believe

Part of me will fade

In the mystery

---> Play Chorus (Guitars 1 & 2) over:

In a future world

Long ago

Part feels for your love

And lives to tell you so

---> Play Fill 1 over:

Do you see world without end

The rising sun my friend

Imagine cloud-like

You will form again

In the spacey boredom

In the autumn of the late afternoon

You are calm

Just like a sleepy room

---> Play Solo 3 over Intro

---> Play Outro (x4)

---> Play Solo 4 over Outro
