Critical Mass (Part I, II, III) Lyrics
[Part One: fission]

Atom by atom gaining a few
Collapsing and waxing and building anew
Eleven dimensions curled up so tight
Time and space one thing the speed limit light

Neutron and proton collapsing afresh
More complex carbons creating the flesh
Super string membranes dark matter burst
Pulling together our universe

Strange, charm and gluons imploding again
All of this matter formed into men

Energy everywhere and no drop to drink
Each generation a chain in the link
Science has helped us in getting this far
The road has run out so get out of the car

We're approaching the critical mass

What will become of the spirit of man?
What is the story and how does it end?
Where are the boundaries and where are the doors?
Who are the heroes for fighting this war?

How did I meet you and why have we spent
Our lives together, why were we sent?
I know that I've lived with you twelve times before
We're growing together, but what is it for?

We're approaching the critical mass

What will become of the spirit of man?
What is the story and how does it end?
Where are the boundaries and where are the doors?
Who are the heroes for fighting this war?

This means war

[Instrumental]

[Part Three: Lucky]

I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do

I don't pray so i'll have to stay lucky
I don't pray so i'll have to stay lucky

I was dead I was alive
I've been everyone in this life
I was alive I was dead
I've heard everything ever said

But...
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do

I don't pray so i'll have to stay lucky
I don't pray so i'll have to stay lucky

I was awake I was asleep
I never had anything that I could keep
I was asleep I was awake
I never broke anything I couldn't make

But...
I've only just found it
It's slippin' away and there's nothing I can do
