I just love the marimba. In this instance I am speaking of Carl Orff’s Musica Poetica; so interesting that the same person that composed Carmina Burana also composed something so soft and sweet as this collaboration…

 - [from wiki]  Musica Poetica, which Orff composed with 
Gunild Keetman, was used as the theme music for 
Terrence Malick's film Badlands (1973). Hans Zimmer later 
reworked this music for his True Romance (1993) score.

It was also reworked by Esau Mwamwaya & Radioclit on the “…The Very Best…mixtape”

"He felt a lack of security. No place existed in all the world that could be called safe, and he knew for the first time in his life that there had never been any such thing as safety, and never would be, the difference being that now he knew it as a fact, whereas before it was a natural unconscious state.” - Alan Sillitoe
