Part 1 - This part flows like water. The staccato drops are contrasted with the long flowing bands as one overlooks a river that teems with life.

Part 2 - This part is a bit of appropriation and parody of older Klezmer and Zydeco music. While it is tonic and comparatively tame, there is always a forward motion that leads into the next part. Part 3 - This part is starts off peacefully but as always, something is amiss as one progresses throughout life. The end of it is unsettling as it isn't truly the end but rather the beginning of something else. Part 4 - The most dissonant and chaotic part. This part contains fragments of the other parts that appear out of nowhere and end as abruptly as they start.
