Track Name: Under the Firmament
The Earth is flat. Fixed, immovable and firm.
Celestial spheres. We're central to everything.
What have we learned during our tenure under the firmament?
What have we learned during our tenure under the firmament?
The Earth is flat. Fixed, immovable and firm.
Celestial spheres. We're central to everything.
We're entitled to it all.
Our minds are made up, don't bother with facts.
Track Name: Subjugated Apophenia
Signifier. Signified. Our inventions, held as truth.
Language has failed! Language has failed!
Arbitrary words. Arbitrary sounds. They mean nothing.
Language has failed! Language has failed!
Arbitrary words. Arbitrary sounds. They mean nothing.
Held as truth, our inventions. Signified. Signifier.
Track Name: Certain Structures
The order in nature. Recursive formulas.
From here to the end of greatness, all singing of self-similarity.
Drifting in the stars, we've seen where we are.
The details change. The pattern remains.
The dreams are persuasive. I let them lie to me.
Eyes gliding across the surface of things.
Ritual observance of formulas well known.
Illusion of choice. They speak with one voice.
The details change. The pattern remains.
Certain structures unfold.
Certain structures have hold.
Track Name: Invisible Surfaces
We fall into it again, returning to what we know well.
These eyes have seen through too much.
Invisible surfaces curve into the distance.
An image on the screen meets my gaze and says to me:
"It doesn't matter who you think you are, you'll believe anything."
Track Name: Almost Awake
A shadow descends. The water will cleanse.
I watch myself hold you under.
We fall into it again, returning to what we know well.
Struggling to breathe, the porcelain screams.
Your eyes lose focus, knowing its hopeless.
What did you see looking through me?
No! Please, no!
Track Name: Planeswalker
Receive the key. Open the doors of perception. Lift the veil.
Feel it in waves. Let it take hold. Expand the mind. Shine like gold.
Morphing spaces. Patterns unfold. Experience other worlds.
Learn to see through the deceptions of your senses. Take control.
Reality is subjective. An illusion in your head.
The Planeswalker, with eyes aglow, watches all things shine like gold.

Track Name: The Golden Hour
Forged in the heart of an ancient star.
Released into the night, destined for life on Earth.
Many suns hang near many horizons.
Clouds roll like thoughts forming, setting the skies on fire.
What will we learn when we return to the stars whence we came?
It's all the same, rearranged.
