Lyrics
"Take a Look Around" (Fliess/Holbrook)

Open your eyes, take a look around

When I feel like the world is crashing down
(open your eyes, take a look around)
When I let the little things bring me down
(open your eyes, take a look around)

Life is great
Life is great!

When I get so hung up in my life
(open your eyes, take a look around)
When I feel there is just too much not right
(open your eyes, take a look around)

Life is great
Life is great!

When the pressure pushes down on me
(open my eyes, take a look around)
When I need that welcome release
(open my eyes, take a look around)

Life is great
Life is great!


Open your eyes, take a look around
All the wonders waiting to be found
There is so much for you to see
Open your eyes, set your mind free



When you see all that you miss
(open your eyes, take a look around)
Your life will be filled with happiness
(open your eyes, take a look around)

Life is great
Life is great!

Open your eyes, and take a look around
Life is great
Open your eyes, take a look around

Wow
This is terrific. What a great arrangement and excellent combination of music and words. The playing on this is superb - brilliant instrumentation, too. And the lyrics are uplifting and performed with real vitality and heart. This has an epic feel to it, and just a great vibe. Terrific stuff. Great collab. Kudos to you both, guys. Nicely done. Peace.

I hear that ..

..Pete Townsend, The Who, "Baba O'Riley" (CSI NY) influence in some of the changes too.

Fine set of lyrics and well sung Mark... nice multi-tracking and use of effects.

Uplifting
Loved the lyrics to this tune, resonates with me, for I had a pretty rough year and a half, but towards the end of it, I was pretty much coming to the conclusions you give us in this tune. So this one hit home for me.

Very uplifting.

Id like to see...
I know its a weird idea, But think about a slow version of this song...a reprise type of deal. it could even be less than a min long...then tag it to the end of song...sort of a theme to tie and few songs together....I loved it....
