[MACROCOSMIC]
the violent truth proclaims: this is not an illusion
mortality still swirls and the contract tightens
fed to reason, ingested by valor
discretion and the better part of brutal reality
split the silence, listen now

while i may move among the crawling species
live in the dirt and give in to my will (it’s not without trepidation)
the bookmaker inexorably adds another zero
still, time to hate, feed, fight, live, kill (i prophesy incarceration)

these odds would send the highest intellect through a decline
the myth, deception and the evidence entwine

amoebic melting pots
wriggling things in water
footfalls printing the land
creators
thinkers
idiots.

[MICROCOSMIC]
i can imagine how evolution seems determined to wield the eraser
and strike its lead on the map where there was once a something

because we’ve thrown the primordial
soup into this festering moat of decay
was nature’s work for nothing?
did the heavens blaze down through the ground for this
blasphemy
blasphemy?
but we’ve refused to acknowledge that

odds of destruction:
one against, chalk it down again


not too sure about this one, but what the hell, i'm writing for myself, not anyone else.

it's about evolution, although that was possibly obvious. first bit is me wondering how on earth nature decided to be nice to us and actually let us evolve... the odds of me being alive right now keep me up at night, believe me. second bit is a reflection of how we've gone and wasted the whole process by seeing how fast we can undo all that work.

i'll C4C if anyone wants.

i agree about the first verse. i think it might be just some random mumbling that i threw in to add atmospheric tension, but it doesn't quite fit.

this would be metal-ish stuff. think progressive metal with math influences.
