1. Educate the Masses (5:36)
I, the Everyman 
Born defenceless 
Trusting guiding hands 

There is a fountain, from which flows: 
Knowledge, usurped for deceptive goals 

Educate the masses 
The only sure reliance 
[to] lessen isolation 
Conceive freedom 
In the here and now 

Urge original thought 

Unknown expanse, we must enter 
Simple pleasures, human purpose 

Hereditary power leveled while deconstructing wealth 
The spirit of inquiry draws the battle lines of intellect 
Banish speculation and open up your eyes 
Hatred breeding scaremongers, with conviction… belie 

A seed is planted, but a great disruption looms ahead
2. To Do What Must Be Done (4:32)
It functions by dysfunction, became a matter of belief 
Debt created slaves, made legitimate the thief 

Sinister concept of property 
became master of all 

Awakened, from heads buried in sand 
Plan of action, to do what must be done 

Paradigm mind shift, possessive antithesis 

Who owns the sun or moon? 
The title has not been laid claim to 

Whether by intervention 
Whether by natural force 
Too much reckless consumption 
It is a certainty that this empire must fall 

In a finite system 
We must arrive at zero growth 
With a war bearing and common focus 
Forge a sustainable civilisation
3. Overhaul (3:36)
It functions by dysfunction, became a matter of belief 
Debt created slaves, made legitimate the thief 

Sinister concept of property 
became master of all 

Awakened, from heads buried in sand 
Plan of action, to do what must be done 

Paradigm mind shift, possessive antithesis 

Who owns the sun or moon? 
The title has not been laid claim to 

Whether by intervention 
Whether by natural force 
Too much reckless consumption 
It is a certainty that this empire must fall 

In a finite system 
We must arrive at zero growth 
With a war bearing and common focus 
Forge a sustainable civilisation
4. Trial of the Sentient (5:05)
For its crimes 
The human condition, standing trial 
In geological time 
The scratch so far: barely perceptible 

Cutting edge of moral philosophy 
Moving concept of right or wrong 
One might wish for assured stability 
Attend the trial of the Sentient 

Will this imperfect race 
Be the first to document its own ascension? 

Here is the Judgement delivered: 
“Flawed as you are; the human brain is still the most complex thing in the known universe, 
with the potential to further evolve into an immense intelligence."
5. Penulimate (4:43)
Emerge through the Great Filter 
Achieve longevity escape velocity 

Penultimate age 
The fringe of fundamental change 
Our time has always been 
on the steep rise of an exponential curve 

Project ahead to the future 
There is no limit, but imagination itself 

Considering Fermi’s Paradox 
A species as unique as it would seem 
The pinnacle of creation from chaos 
Transitioning to universal understanding 
The rhythm of existence might be the most profound thing you will ever hear
6. Resolution (12:04)
Eureka moment dawns 
Collective conscious alive 
That feeling was dulled and distracted 
Unable to reach its potential 
....and be free 
Deliberate step to evolve 
As far as the mind can see 

What will be the legacy? 
A dead fossilised rock floating in space 
Or a vibrant enlightenment 
Stretching across eternity 
Until and beyond the end of time 

Successive iterations 
Essence of what was human 
Shaped by Earth, our perception 
Its cycles decide the limitless forms 

The scale at which life was defined 
Seemed so small, nearly invisible 
Yet from humble beginnings 
It could become what we called God 

Having passed through the rabbit hole 

Perhaps the one thing we may never understand 
Is the glory of sound to move all flesh to tears 

A musical analogy to the Universe 
From a quantum inception to heat death 

That is the true higher power 
Dependable sacrament 
Embodiment of …grace 

From tribal genesis 
Became altruistic 
Like fire to the primitive 
It’s magic in the sky 

The last question to be answered 
Will see entropy sent in reverse 
But that is some way off from now 
In the meantime live life well 

After twilight in the garden 
The empire greed built is fading away 
To the observer, observe yourself 
Honest assessment, through shades of grey 
Ultimately find resolution 

I live in the real world 
Flesh and blood 
Physics and chemistry 
Stars and gravity 
The average dreamer
