Running 12:20, this is the closing track on Funkadelic's sixth album, Standing on the Verge of Getting It On
. It was written by band leader George Clinton
and guitarist Eddie Hazel. The first 6:35 is instrumental, at which point Clinton comes in, speaking trippy lines like:Listen to the inner voice
A higher wisdom is at work for you
It's the kind of uplifting, consciousness-stimulating message Funkadelic was famous for.
