This song is a musical journey that starts somber, builds to a climax, then resolves back into a meditative state. There is a lot going on in this composition - Cello, Flute, Piano Charango (a South American guitar), Bansuri, not to mention a full string orchestra and a tapestry of acoustic guitars. This was by far the most difficult song to complete on the entire album.
