Replacing the rasping with feeling,

Las Vegas-like we charm the crowd with dealing-

Of highs and lows- of soft piano- a little ding-a-ling- 

Ching ching- the synch of symbol,

Snare taps n' snaps,

Authoritative Bass lays down the line,

Old Clarinet ceding encouraging impetuous Horn-

We never noticed the morn,

Crept in like a gentle friend,

On and yawn- the tired mind evolves with wandering rhythms,

New intros pretending to be outs,

No stopping now as sunshine brings new

Colors, riffs, slides and shifts;

Know your turn?

No need now,

It's burned into your unconsciousness Reborn.
