Lyrics

Yesterday seems so far away
It was so long ago when we didn't know how to get along
But today, how we've changed our ways
We will go on together, today, in unison

They tell you, "Man, you'll always lose"
But you know it ain't true because success is an attitude
It's up to you, what you think and do
Y'know things won't look blue until you believe it's true

United we stand, divided we fall
We're in this together, we're in one and all
We've all got a gift, here's your chance to use it
Don't care what they say, no time to discuss, just do it

Yesterday seems so far away
It was so long ago when we didn't know how to get along
Our focus stays on the brighter day
When honour's at stake, oh we'll stay, today, in unison

About The Track
The original idea for Today, In Unison came to me at the start of 1996, when the new motto for my "house" at school had been announced. I thought about writing a song that incorporated all the general themes and mottos over the years.

During the project other influences crept in. A trip to the New Norcia Monastery gave me a great sense of calm around me, and I was entranced by the Gregorian chants. The general harmony in the landscape around me gave me the idea for the one minute ambient intro at the start.

I was almost going to give up on the song when I received confirmation that I was permitted to use a bird call sample I had made from a recording by John N. Hutchinson. That revived my interest and dedication to the project, despite the fact it was uphill all the way.
