Lyrics/Song Structure:
======================
---> Play Intro (x1)
---> Play Riff 1 over:
   Groove as your soul sings
   Spinnin' all around as we dust a melody
   Groove as your soul sings
   Spinnin' all around
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Welcome to this groove you can move right
   We gonna take you higher not caught in the quagmire
   I can't survive on a stupid nine to five
   I'd rather be poor writing tunes livin' on a commune
   Kickin' it with my brothers and significant others
   Life in pursuit of only money we think it's funny
   The only thing that money it could ever bring to me would be some gifts
   For my friends follow me now trips for my family
---> Play Riff 3 over:
   The only thing I love is freedom the people around me I need 'em
   I'd like to build the world a spliff but like I said I said
   You could never get me interested in dreams of wealth
   Myself my birthday happens to land on April twelfth wack
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   A Coney Island of the mind it's mine
   I swipe the sweets strip the beats in the sunshine
   Loco holmes I stroll because I'm thinking
   A tone poem alone is love medicine 
   Then the demon spring revolution in my spirit
   Here it is and I will kill with it
   Traveling head spinnin' from the medicine
   Illusions fadin' out and comin' on again
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   Unwind your mind then find entire minutes
   Abstract the tract of sight day breaking in it
   Doles out my share of the world ocean and sun
   Rising with whirling motion
---> Play Riff 4 (x1)
---> Play Riff 4 over:
   I fought kicked and screamed my way to getting born now I feel
   Warm and I say come on the night won't save anyone
   Won't you roam we've grown so we can write
   Again our soul select its own way for the travellin'
---> Play Riff 2 over:
   We're here we're breathing and we wanna keep our blood running
   So we're gonna keep gunning till the next homecoming
   I like the boogie to the bang bang boogie say up
   Jump the boogie to the bang bang come on
---> Play Intro (x1)
---> Play Ending
