Default Song Structure

Hey guys,
How are you?
I'm doing a project for college which I have to explain the structure of a song.
I have picked "This is What You Are" by Mario Biondi.
All I have to do is explain the whole structure in this song, such as if it contain Introduction, Verse, Chorus, Bridge, etc.. I also have to explain elements in the song that catch attention of the listener and also the lyrics.
I'm not really experienced with song structure so I was wondering if is there anyone out there who can give me a little help or even guide me to get this project done.

Thanks so much in advance.

Using the song here ...

1. Long intro, about a minute
2. The repeating melody is the verse (ending in "this is what you are")
3. Starting at about 1:40 you've got layering - verses with additional instrumentation added
4. Then there's some instrumental interludes. There might be a technical term for that but I don't know what it is.
5. Doesn't seem to have a distinct chorus, but maybe the parts where he sings the nonsensical words could be considered a chorus. Or even the repeats of "This is what you are" could be considered a very brief refrain/chorus. Sometimes songs blur the line between verse and chorus.

That's about it. Nice song, have never heard it before.
