lyrics

i) I still wonder what I am
Always marvel at the sight of us
That we are here sharing these stories
Always believing that our noises go on

Alone, I needed someone
to reactivate my blood
I was missing in my action
and I hadn’t understood
That some eyes see you clearer
Regardless of your blur
And the fates will only intervene
Once you’ve found your nerve

Standing on this Random Earth
Reaching through ambient light
I am a towering pine
in an unkept world
With roots that dig through yesterday
Tracing my timeline

I’ll never know what I am
The idea is ever shifting
But I am here … a shadow of a story
Dimensions away from my own

Alone, I’m made of nothing
I’m a dream that no one had
Calculate my darkness
I’m a mass-resistant man
The freedom void inspires
is the map for every trail
Oh, to wend among the treasures
On the microstellar scale

Passing through this Random Earth
Relieved of matter and of might
I am a glimmering shine
in an untimed world
With routes
that span ubiquity
Chasing the boundary

ii) But the beauty of this moment
is the view I have right now
And all that I choose to see
Is the bursting dawn of endless possibility

It’s the limit of the brilliance
That the sun will fade away
So all that I choose to see
Are the glowing rays of omnipresent energy

But the beauty of this moment
Is the view I have right now
And all that I choose to see
Is the bursting dawn of endless possibility

iii) It’s the magic maker’s torment
That the trick will be found out
So all that I choose to see
Is the flowing rush of conquering infinity

It’s the end of deception
The illusion fades away
So all that is left to see
Is the endless truth that everything’s a part of me

iv) Passing through this Random Earth
Relieved of matter and of might
I am a glimmering shine
