    A few lines stand out from the lyrical dada running through the hypnotic music; "there's no turning back," indicates a moment of deep realization in the present that the future is what may be. That sends the guitars off on a lovely contrapuntal riff in conversation with the drums which one wants to hear again. "all for freedom and of pleasure nothing ever lasts forever," shows a distinct flavor in the mouth as a result of actions taken that must be acknowledged and swallowed. It's evident in downwardly harmonic chords, that even participating in the best of life is temporary. Rejoice.
