  by straying slightly from the root.

(Chorus)
Sound system gonna bring me back up
One thing that I can depend on.

Try to descreibe to the limit of my ability;
It's there for a second
Then it's given up what it used to be.
Contained in music somehow more than just sound,
This inspiration coming and twisting things around
Because you always know that it's gonna have to go.
You always know that you'll be back in the cold.
Point of departure sublimated in a song
It's always coming to give me that hope for just a second
then it's gone, but!

(Chorus)

Static pulse inside of music bringing us escape.
It's always temporary, changing nothing in it's wake...
Just a second where we're leaving all this shit behind.
Just a second but it's leaving just this much in mind;
To resist despair, that second makes you see...
to resist despair, because you can't change everything...
To resist despair, in this world is what it is to be free.

(Chorus)

Wake up turn my box on,
Bust the shade, let the sun in.
Times getting tougher 'bout time to start runnin'
Box in my hand music by my side,
Skankin' to the rhythm of the music by my side.

Almost there ...
