From small speck of stardust to wondrously sentient
Revolving and spinning in space
Waking and sleeping and yielding to gravity
It starts to show on your face

Millions of forces of physics and providence
Teamed up and brought us all here
Waking and sleeping and yielding to gravity
Pointless to measure in years

Out in the desert your thoughts are as clear as the stars
You feel golden
You're billion year old carbon.

    General CommentI agree with the joni mitchell comments above. Her voice is quite like suzanne vega
    This is a fantastic track. And due to the refrerences/sample it's one I felt I knew well instantly
