Life: a truly nebulous idea
Where does it begin?
Where does it end?
When are we living?
When are we dead?
An organ separate from the body is dead
Yet an organism is simply the sum of its members
Perhaps, in like manner, the earth itself is alive
A living thing as the grand amalgamation of its parts
As a microbe in this vast and infinite universe
Track Name: Viral DNA/RNA
Neural feedback loops
Creating the thoughts, perception, and memories you hold so dear
We do not posses this alone
Consciousness is not limited to your species
Indeed; you have not the belly for this
So beat your chest and strut about
Claiming to be above Nature
As bacteria in a culture
We breed and consume
Gorging ourselves until sustenance runs out
The collapse is imminent
There is no second chance
We did this ourselves
Track Name: Nucleus
Your shock at the state of the world is amusing
Killing one another for one reason or another is simply our nature
The individual is inherently selfish
Natural selection favors the self serving
Even the straight line you walk is out of fear
Fate plays a hidden hand
Even the most noble of intentions cloaks an ulterior motive
The sun will shine and always cast shadows
