    The music definitely comes with the title. All the melodies go together perfectly as one and I do think the world should be viewed that way. With one another we become successful and without each other we can be lost.

    This is a good song to meditate to because there are no words to it so you can relax and take a moment to think about what you need help with or your problems.

    As I hear this song in my mind the thought of different cultures and tribes come together. The fact that there’s a mixer of different music…I heard Asian, African and other different combinations of sounds coming together as one forming something beautiful.

    Repetition/pattern, times of peaceful tones that then quickly turn into rapid/loud tones
