I first heard this song as a 12yo back in the sixties. It's still one of my favourites. It's also the only tune I know where the crowd is part of the music.

"You know, sometimes we're not prepared for adversity, When it happens sometimes we’re caught short. We don’t know exactly how to handle it when it comes up. Sometimes we don’t know just what to do when adversity takes over and I have advice for all of us. I got it from my pianist Joe Zawinul who wrote this tune and it sounds like what you’re supposed to say when you have that kind of problem and its called Mercy, Mercy, Mercy"

(When it comes to a crisis still keep on running.)
(You believe in power it's mental power.)

押し寄せる Material World 加速する Metallic Time
Ah~ 置き去りにされてく
傷つけば流れる赤い血と痛みが
Ah~ 綱渡りの日々 どちらに墜ちても生命は無い
まっすぐに進むだけさ

※(You'll never lose your mind.)
I'll never lose my mind. 生き様の証明
(You'll never lose your mind.)
I'll never lose my mind. それは火花散らし熱く
(Flaming up! It will be shining your soul.)※

囁きが聞こえる 深い闇の向こう
Ah~ おまえは誰なのか…?
自分らしくなんて言ってたらはぐれる
Ah~ 自分の替わりは自分しかいない たとえいつか
世界中が変わっても

☆(There is no time to lose.)
焦る気持ち 未来が見えない
(There is no time to lose.)
でも負けない いつも探求めている明日を
(Nevermore you'll never look back on the past.)☆

(☆くり返し)
(※くり返し)

(When it comes to a crisis still keep on running)
(You believe in power it's mental power)

The imminent material world, the accelerating metallic time
Ah, only things left behind after getting hurt
the flowing crimson blood and pain
Ah, days of walking on a tightrope
Either way, hell awaits if you fall
Just head straight!

※(You'll never lose your mind!)
I'll never lose my mind! Proof of my life!
(You'll never lose your mind!)
I'll never lose my mind! This is the light and heat of the flare!
(Flaming up! It will be shining your soul!)

I can hear whispers, beyond the deep darkness
Ah, who might you be?
Saying I'll be myself, yet I lose my way
Ah, I'm the only one who's going to change myself, even if someday
Even if the whole world changes

☆(There is no time to lose!)
My antsy heart, I cannot see the future!
(There is no time to lose!)
I will not lose to
(Nevermore)
the tomorrow that I long
(You'll never look back on the past!)

(☆ Repeat)
(※ Repeat)
