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
