I'm a cross country runner at my school in the fall. I also run track in the spring. Listening to this makes me think of some of the races I've run. During a race, you often forget everything else going on around you. The only things in your immediate vision are your fellow runners and the trail. You become aware of nothing but the air speeding past you and your own air filtering through your lips as you sprint those last 100 yards to the finish. At the beginning, you always start out entirely aware, of everything. The lone dew drops on the grass, the stones in your path, the crowd cheering you on. Then, as you break through out of the sunshine and into the coolness of the woods beyond, everything fades away but you, your legs, your breath, and the others. Even they too seem distant and transient, you may stick behind one racer for some moments and then in the next he may be behind you, down from a cramp or out of breath, and you move on to the next one. Or, you yourself may be left behind on a hill, and are forced to make up the distance on the way down or on the flat later on. Even so, you forget about all these things, even who you are, in the single thrill of the run. Not all races are like this. Many just plain suck, because either your knee is blown or you can't catch enough air into your lungs or your stomach is about to burst from a cramp. But in all of the good races, I can hear this song pounding through my head, my heart, even floating upon my very breath. Yet even that is never the same. The song is ever changing, constantly, with the pace of your run. And you always keep running. You always run the race from beginning to end.

Some parts sound off beat from each other and it's pretty much just a bass line with noise every now and then.
