Track Name: Aleph
A forced march to the future
Wheels pound granite to dust
Step forward into light
If you outpace the twilight it appears as dawn

Speak to me of eternity
Of shifting mountain stone
An illusion of recursion
Sing to me
Songs of time and distance
Mechanize a moment
A recursive illusion

A forced march to the future
Wheels pound granite to dust

Speak to me of eternity
Sing to me of time and distance
Track Name: Voyager
Time seems to stop as every moving object fades into the distance
A silence deeper than any possible on earth
From this vantage point we gain a new perspective
Looking back upon ourselves as we reach into the void

Through the fog and shoal surveying the wonders in the deep
By a single spider's thread connected to home

A symbol of the best of human kind
A greeting etched in gold
A spirit of determination

A message of hope cast into the cosmic tide,
We are only trying to “survive our time so we may live into yours”
Track Name: Athenæum
An endlessly forking path
A clearly repeating pattern
A load bearing structure
A poetic device

An intricate labyrinth, or simple chaos?

An endlessly forking path
A clearly repeating pattern
A load bearing structure
A poetic device
A transcription error in a self replicating system
A collective memory
Four simple symbols, the fingerprints of the gods
Track Name: Daybreak
To drink up the sea
Wipe away the horizon
Unchain the Earth
Re-imagine

It calls in a long lost tongue
A tide that draws us home
Inspired by each new candle's flame
A voice in the resonance of stone

The romance of distance
An echoed desire
Inspired by each new candle's flame
Chase retreating horizons
Called by the voice of reason
A voice in the resonance of stone
