lyrics

when i sat and looked up at the veins of the trees
i felt something colossal shift in my mind
as if the groaning heaves of Eon came loose below me
and sent me staggering for a moment in time

and with my arms extended outward ahead,
i try to feel every bead of blood in my bones
i've never been very good with saying what i mean
but i've an even worse fear of saying nothing
and being
alone

when the prokaryotic seas swam and the atmosphere boiled
they took all that they wanted without care
they were children! they explored!
how could they possibly know
that they'd soon die out once they used up all of their air

and i'd like to say that it doesn't bother me much
i can look back, learn the lessons and be satisfied.
but i kid myself trying to carry the weight of the phanerozoic race
with my mitochondria screaming from inside

and when i was a creature living in Pangaea
i looked up at the sky and would feel afraid
but the cold shine of stars warmed our bodies in the dark,
the same dust from which we were made

and i'd like to say that it doesn't bother me much
i can find peace by looking inside
but i kid myself when i stare into the eyes of the ocean
and it blamelessly looks back, knowing i'm the one who has something to hide

tell me: when you were a creature living in pangaea
did you look up at the sky and feel afraid?
did the cold shine of stars warm your body in the dark?
did you question once the dust from which
they were made?
