    Description: A lengthy and complex prog-rock-influenced track from Secret of Mana, composed by Hiroki Kikuta. This song uses a method of composition called "beat displacement", in which the percussion is designed so that the snares/hi-hat hits have inconsistent patterns and never land on the same beat. This made the first two channels of this song an absolute nightmare to transcribe. If I've made any errors on that front, I apologize and will fix them if they're pointed out to me. Otherwise, this is a more-or-less identical recreation of the original song.

    This could work in a relaxed level, perhaps fitting especially well in a jungle/forest or beach stage. I could also see it being at home in an overworld or town setting.

    Due to issues with ARAM limitations, the original SMW samples @7 and Thunder are overwritten. If you need to use those samples with this song, however, then enough room can be made simply by removing/reducing the echo effect.

    I just noticed that I had made an octave error at one point in the song that caused the piano chords to go out of tune for a few seconds. I have since fixed and updated the file.
