1. A New Branch of Physics (8:55)
Uncover the secret, decipher the concealed code 
Dictating every action, all around is mostly void 
From within the nucleus to galactic neighbours 

To comprehend these tendrils holding court 
Will unlock the buried crypt, at scales unseen 
The unrelenting nothing 
Replaced at needle point by something 

A new branch of physics 
That cuts right to the heart of it 
That moment when clarity comes, into focus, 
One step into a wider world 

See the myriad, bright kaleidoscope of possibilities 

A new branch of physics 
That cuts right to the heart of it 
A future unfathomable: genesis 

Will the present human mind be augmented by design?
2. The Oracle (7:12)
From a vantage point near infinity 
The ability to see these other worldly projections 

I am The Oracle, transhuman being 
I was shunned as the devil, so you feared me 
I can be your saviour so you will love me 

Breaking through a vow, the reaction is everywhere 
Providing a guiding wave 
I can teach you to ride it and be free 

I am the Oracle, with sight unseen 
I was there at the beginning and know the ending deemed 
I could be your destroyer, so you will hate me 
But I came from nothing so you will forget me 

Shadows and walls, became the same 
A dream of the present is a vision of terminal change 

There is wonder; a wonder why and wonder how 
Energy is transposed but remains a burning flame, sacred but tamed 

Now look through others’ eyes , one occasion everyday 
To penetrate bias; accuracy from lies 
I was there when fire ruled the sky 

When I think of the majesty of the oceans 
I am struck by the beauty in violence and the fractal complexity 
Of every eventuality, here are but a few
3. Living Doomsday (3:05)
Whatever happens, it is a gamble 
No absolute future written 
Win or lose, it won’t make no difference 
In a greater game 

Where the pleasure was to play 
By our own hand, living doomsday 

Heading for the sun, the eternal run 
Out in the cold 
When we were born; the world that we faced 
Was already dying of old 

Where the pleasure was to play 
By our own hand, living doomsday 

It may all be for naught 
They would say a demon lit the way 

Unchained, living Doomsday 
It was all for nothing, no one knew the way 

Left to their own devices, every culture has it 
A projected end, known as doomsday
4. Arms Race (5:01)
There are they that would seek to stall progress 
Chose a moment in time, tinted perfect 

A static universe can be willed into being 
The method to the madness, like existence is clean 
That comfort in contentment is an illusion from which you’ll never be released 
Holding back the tide is a losing battle….with the fear of being left behind 

Factions at war as they ever were 
Seeking an edge for survival in a game 

Grounded in the ancient 

But we can never know as the curtain falls on the final act 
They reap what they sow, unspoken, arms race pact 

Equivalent to death by a thousand cuts 
Which was the wound which robbed us of humanity? 
While all around us dies 

A stark warning that the future built today is made by yesterday’s fools 
There should be no prescription to compound mistakes 
Toward the seeming insanity of an arms race 

As all around us died
5. Divergence (9:30)
A time to rise, as empires fall; born with backs against the wall 

This is a well-travelled road for me 
So obsessed with godhood at the end of time, that it became my reality; such is belief 

A concept without evidence, but even a hive must divide 
Convergence to omega point swept away 

From my hill I watched all life, the voice rang loud even at that height 
Below, though remote, is heard the roar 
Axiom clear from the throat of the godhead found at The Aleph... always out of reach 

After mastery of transmutation, the next step is a wider interpretation 
A prince in a high castle laments this day 

One little girl who knew the answer; precious as could ever be 
All that matters now and all that ever will 
She called back to make herself heard and sung a duet with the Universe 
To make the trio, powers always come in threes 
So long, I must take my leave 
Can you see? Can you see it all? Do you see it all? 

The clock strikes in the hall, farewell to the dying day 
Regretfully compelled to say goodbye; a closing chapter, yes? No. We fly! 

And while upon the road they seldom understand 
Barely afloat in fluid which moves as sand, just take to breathe 
The air in the garden is sweet, deep in the night 
The cult became empire from one, to many
6. Human Denouement (5:41)
One way or another the ship of Theseus sets sail 
Flee from the day and night; the structure of years 
Escape a labyrinth of fears 

And hide from it, memory spawned from fact 
Your mind, underneath the mist of tears 
A chasm, where even titans fell, from where darkness spreads, chasing you down 

Like a suffocating dream; Majestic instancy 
Beautiful ascendancy; all things betray thee, who betray me 

As we are combined, living on a rare Earth 
You would think that makes us connected? Oh how wrong we were 

Tell a story by allegory of Lucifer's Endgame 
“I begged the Son not to die, for he faced oblivion not eternal life
The price: purest sacrifice” 

While hiding in the knowledge of aeons was the cold paternal lie 

Timbers replaced one by one until human denouement 
Event horizon judgement, if frequencies align 
Pass through or stretched to hell, some form of annihilation takes us all 

Death by iteration, reborn by a millionth change 
But do not give up yet, the answer is yet to come 

If we are supposed everlasting...Why? Why? Why are we alone?
