Demo: 

Liner Notes: 

The other day I finally got around to seeing the original 1937 Frank Capra version of "Lost Horizon".... this seemed to want to arrive..was also thinking about people returning to schools, jobs, making a new start or new beginnings, etc.. Perhaps a certain zen philosophy is in there too?

a rare (for me) -start with the chorus- kind of song, with two very oddball verses in there too.. not sure what i think of it!

Lyrics: 

Shangra-la is where you are, if you believe in you
When you rise and recognize, the things that you can do

vulnerability
capability
humility
changeability

credibility
responsibility
sensibility
tranquility

A breath of something new! I like that chorus so much too.

Interesting message - utopia is contentment with what you are and what you have.

That's a really cool chord progression and great rhythm guitar playing! I feel the Zen, and it's fun and catchy, too. Good one!
