lyrics

the moments start to tessellate. the sequence falls apart.
entire world histories turn mass hysteria.
the atoms, stricken terminal, break free from rank and file.
the matter can’t resolve itself. it decides to take its life.

all the disassembled pieces dissipate into unbeing.
all the while, bodies pace rooms self-consciously;
oscillations, faint whitecaps on the breaking surge
of nothingness we’re carried by.
the axes we are drawn across
splintered, fragmented, nebulous.

each potential future and all the static past
converge at the edges until there’s nothing left.
light snubbed out. time just stopped.
space collapsed. data lost.

along the fabric of our being, stitches tearing at the seams;
dangling threads unceasingly unraveling,
begging questions of the meaning we have tried to find
in knowing that we’re here, alive.
we’d all agree we’re truly blessed,
but how to face this looming nothingness?

in time, oneness and noneness align.
where do we fit in?
in the wake of the sublime, everything and nothing collide.
where will we reside?

and if all of the patterns, trajectories, and systems
of our so-called existence in the distance decompose–
if all of the moments and their marriage to one another
are lost in the margins of a spectrum we can’t know–
well, how can we hope to live meaningful lives,
or even so much as make a simple decision,
when faced with the prospect of all continuity rendered discrete?

take a deep breath and exhale belief.
have faith in the fight for us all.
take a deep breath and exhale belief.
believe, believe, believe.
