The Fractal 04:09
Let me see... Profound yet prescribed Existence in bounds Enslavement for hire Join it for free... Mentions of litter Dust in your brain Tiresome loathing - A must every day The season is stormy You gather belongings Cherished in sleep Laughter is pleasant Only when true Desire is scorching, Extinguished by you The purpose is single - Continue the breed Exist for your offspring And scatter the seed
Used to make the same mistake - I would fall Inside a space you made me face, Into you. Sleeping in fire and wandering round The estranging romance - icicle dance. Going in and out of you - A pleasant dream. Waking cold, cause I hear you scream, You're quarreling. Sleeping in fire and wandering round The estranging romance - icicle dance.
The Fracture 04:13
There's an old man by the sea Sets his spirit free He knows what happiness Is all about Made it himself, there's no doubt There's a vision of a throne Last day all alone Against humanity Against machines A new point of view as it seems I'm done circling Round the fractal Of Repeating patterns To Approach the Sun There's a fracturing of dreams Light bursting in beams I feel an altitude I'm rising high Seems like I'm able to fly Man is a creature that may comprehend Only he is to be crowned the king and Only he can foresee Only I am to be King of the sea Wisdom's begun As I reach for the sun Framing a piece to learn Wisdom's begun As I reach for the sun Flaming at peace to burn I'm feeling lighter The sun is brighter I'm feeling lighter
