Track Name: Transmission
the signal prepared without awareness emanated without force
transmitted to all regardless of a lacking intent
these waves flow unending just as the transmission
is sent outward devoid of regard
the intended receptor exist unaware
mindlessly receiving and broadcasting simultaneously

mourn the loss of the transmission
a message never intended will thusly never be heard
ever forbidden the understanding
with each passing day the transmissions are washed away

the ultimate giving of oneself
becomes a pointless, fruitless act, instantly defeated
the process becomes mirrored, reflecting into ironic, eternal emptiness
a perpetual loop cycles. its feedback unnoticed
an endless lack of understanding radiates vibrantly
among those transmitting

mourn the loss of the transmission
a message never intended will thusly never be heard
ever forbidden the understanding
with each passing day the transmissions are washed away

may we one day be set to receive
may we see what beams at us unending
to be free to exchange infinitely
to at last hear the transmission
Track Name: Tethered to the Vortex
being dragged across the cosmos
chained to thy master, gravity
one force pulls another along
and is itself yet pulled

spiraling
circling

held in by fiery reigns
a captive of ageless motion
a screaming juggernaut
even time must give way

cursed to be continuous
even in death
tethered to the vortex

a prisoner of an ever-expanding cell
a child of the lost singularity
this dancing of mass and heat
a lesson in utter ruination

tethered to the vortex
Track Name: Gemini
there are two worlds in which we live
more than just our own experience
a telling of our lives through the eyes of the infinite other
coexisting with the life of individual mind

no matter what we try to portray to the other's eyes
the experience is something we can never control

the outsider's version carries just as much weight as our own
if we seek to please, or anger, the weight is the same
nothing we can do will separate the dualistic nature
we love and hate the other for their dominion

we all exist as a Gemini
two lives occurring as one
pointless to favor internal perception
we are what the other decides

honor the life of the Gemini
intrinsic experience is never complete
join the two in mutual prosperity
be a light in the other's eyes
Track Name: Vibrations Thriving in the Vacuum
in the frozen void
enveloped in absolute nothingness
comes a spark, a hope
a dream of being

it crackles without sound
it burns without heat
it shines without light
nonetheless it is

it is and is not
never needing to yield to the cold
our most incredible law demands
it be given life

without mother
without father
without blood
nonetheless it lives

gathering, growing
feeding itself
harnessing the energy
of will alone

these waves become ravenous
sending tremors through the universal connective
where no others shall be allowed to live these vibrations thrive

where no others shall be allowed to live these vibrations thrive
