Track Name: Peculiarities
We came from nothing, we thought a thought and suddenly we were. Born into fire. High density, high pressure waves, high temperature. I am explosive; my fuse is lit, there's no putting out this flame. Just try and stop me. These things, once set in motion, can't be changed. Try and stop us; we're burning ever brighter every day. No signs of dwindling, we're infinite potential led astray.

In a vast and quiet darkness motes of microscopic dust created friction, resonated. Suddenly our atoms touch. Out of nothing there was something, out of something; out of something, something more. Time unending, no beginning; temporary at its core.
Track Name: The Scattering
When we were created I could sense a sort of vastness within ourselves, without ourselves. When we knew what it truly meant I found a sort of sadness within myself, without myself, and now that time has passed us I've begun understanding why; it's because of our expanding worlds.

I can feel us scattering.

And in that great expansion I could see nothing else but time, as an arrow fast-and-forward, ever-onward, never stopping, piercing holes in our dimensions; why in linear and narrow flight?

In that cosmic pain that follows, I still wallow, I still sigh. A hundred-million down the line, eons later still I can feel us scattering.
