lyrics

Then we awoke
We awoke
We were hungry and we killed
We were thirsty and we traveled
Our skin felt the seasons
Our eyes saw the hours
We gazed at one another
And felt a sacred fire
Two became one skin
As we watched new life begin
We pleaded with the skies
For favor and fortune
We made tools to construct our origins
Our visions were strewn, along the rocks
Our first dreams, were forged then

A creature obsessed with discovery
Moving through a landscape of complexity
Ever pining for answers, reasons
Abolish all mystery

The docile spin of this precious gem
The violent lure of our dent in the expanse
We are suspended by these forces
Their banter spawns all that's awake

We exist, pristine result
Countless endeavors and alternatives
A vast timeline
Beauty and beholder unite

The energy of our reality
Is homogeneous
A pinhole containing all the chaos
All the chaos that will ever be

Substance and space are unrealized
Still in obedience
In anticipation of a word
Without form and void
Darkness was over the surface of the deep

The docile spin of this precious gem
The violent lure of our dent in the expanse
We are suspended by these forces
Their banter spawns all that's awake

To the mountain wrapped in fog
Only a fleeting moment
To the dirt we hold in our palm
Only a brief chapter

With eternity in our hearts
We ponder our fate
