Track Name: Cosmonaut (Misha Mansoor - Periphery)
{End Act Two}
(Begin Act One)
01 - Cosmonaut
The Cosmonaut
Preparing for launch...
No amount of preparation leads me,
To be ready to depart, believe me,
I hold on to all of that which freely,
Floats about under my feet, beneath me.
Elevation, ever rising, I’m shown,
Upwards into everything that’s unknown,
What’s the meaning, or the purpose? I’ll go,
Despite all the reasoning that I know.
Floating upward,
Searching forward,
Reaching inward,
For my home!
Bring me back home, (Home!), to the world that I’ve known, (Known!)
I resent this, resistance!
How have I grown, (Grown!), from the people I’ve known? (Known!)
I can't bear this, distance!
Distance!
I’ll be waiting for gravity, to be,
Pulling me back,
I’ll be running on empty, 'till we,
Find the right track.
Bring me back home, (Back home, back home…) to the world that I’ve known, (Back home, back home…)
I resent this, resistance!
How have I grown, (I've grown, I've grown…) from the people I’ve known? (I've grown, I've grown…)
I can't bear this, distance!
Distance!
Distance!!!
The Fabric of Spacetime
[The Fabric of Spacetime Instrumental Role is performed by Misha Mansoor of Periphery.]
The Cosmonaut
Arriving in orbit...
Now I can grow from the people I know,
There is no resentment left that I show,
All I had to do to fall was let go,
I have bridged the distance over the flow.
Now I can grow from the people I know,
There is no resentment left that I show,
All I had to do to fall was let go,
I have bridged the distance over the flow.
I’ll be waiting for gravity, to be,
Pulling me back,
I’ll be running on empty, till we,
Find the right track.
…Find the right track...
Track Name: DNA
02 - DNA
The Cosmonaut
Portrayed either by his biological side, or his cultural side, internally.
The Biological Cosmonaut
Contemplating from space...
I am a battlefield, within my,
Character, I’m not sure, why,
This division draws the line,
Between this fissure.
Please explain the separation,
This composure can’t define.
It creates unseen relation,
Between what I am inside.
The Human Condition
There is the world around us,
All it’s own.
Then there’s the world within us,
All alone.
The Biological Cosmonaut & The Human Condition
I am both the, Vessel and Sea,
Both the Voyage, and the Journey,
Both Beginning, And the Ending, ON!
The Human Condition
There’s no controlling it.
At least there isn’t yet.
Despite this we regret,
The changes we beget.
The Cultural Cosmonaut
Contemplating from space...
Don’t even think about it, thinking won’t bring about it,
Forget the dreams about it, wasting my time.
They say these ties control me, create all that implores me,
Dictates the life before me, fate in my mind.
But it cannot create a, person who lives today a,
Human who paves the way and, breaks from the line.
There is a will about us, and nothing can confound us,
Or ever get around us,
We are mankind.
We are, so much more than what the genes tell us,
We are, so much more than what our dreams tell us,
We are, so much more than those who've come before us,
We are, so much more than common life would let us.
The Human Condition
Before, you think, that this is a Right instead of a Privilege, you will see,
The more, you think, the greater your mind helps you to, be who you want to be,
You're on, the brink, of making this evolution, more than reality,
So if, you think, this won't just be handed to you…
The Cultural Cosmonaut
Don’t even think about it, thinking won’t bring about it,
Forget the dreams about it, wasting my time.

Dictates the life before me, fate in my mind.
But it cannot create a, person who lives today a,

The more, you think, the greater your mind helps you to, be who you want to be,
You're on, the brink, of making this evolution, more than reality,
So if, you think, this won't just be handed to you…
The Cosmonaut
Whole once more, as his signal fades...
We are mankind.
Track Name: Mindflay (Brian Wade & Josh Clark - Vestascension)
03 - Mindflay
The Holy One
OH YEA!
Enter this world of mine, leave your inhibitions behind,
Its not worth wasting time, without an open mind.
The Disciple
[The Disciple Character Role is performed by Brian Wade of Vestascension.]
If I could only take your head,
Upon my shoulder,
Is what you told her,
You're growing older…
Growing older...
The Shadow
[The Shadow Character Role is performed by Josh Clark of Vestascension.]
If I could see inside your mind,
I would come over,
Is what you told her,
You're going over…
Going over...
The Clergy
Take my hand.
Understand.
The Holy One
Take my hand, and hold on tightly,
For the fight that's ahead.
Now you know,
Where I stand, and don't take it lightly,
With these bombs overhead!
The Clergy
Ah, ah, ah, ah!
The Disciple
There's no pretending that this isn't,
A war for you.
The Shadow
Do you expect to make this,
Battle mine too?
The Follower
Understand that together we are more than mighty,
On the path that we tread,
I demand that you get everything you rightly,
Deserve in the end!
The Holy One
Leave from this world of mine, keep your inhibitions defined,
Its not worth wasting time, now that I know your mind!
The Holy One, The Disciple, The Shadow
If I could only take your head,
Upon my shoulder,
Is what you told her,
You're growing older…
Growing older...
The Follower
You're growing older, you're growing older!
The Holy One, The Disciple, The Shadow
If I could see inside your mind,
I would come over,
Is what you told her,
You're going over…
Going over...
The Follower
You're going over, you're going over!
The Congregation
You're going over!
Track Name: Story For A Muse
04 - Story for a Muse
The Lover
Gazing in your eyes with your hand in mine,
We watch the moon rise and leave time behind.
I lay my head on your shoulder to rest,
Feeling your heart beating on in your chest.
The Lover & The Muse
Waiting together while we watch the sky,
Wishing whenever a star passes by.
I had you closely beneath shining stars,
When we’re together the whole world is ours.
The Lover
I will always remember, everything we’ve been through,
I’ll share forever together with you.
You and I are a story, and the whole world should see,
You mean more than anything else to me.
This is our story,
As our tale is told, our lives unfold.
And this is our story,
Each time we begin, Wishing it will never end.
Never end.
Never end.
Never end.
Never end.
I feel at ease just by hearing you breathe,
You are the piece that completes all of me.
Lying awake as the moon lights your face,
Waiting till morning to feel your embrace.
The Lover & The Muse
So when the sunrise is burning above,
Open your eyes feel the warmth of my love.
Though this night is ending we’ll always be,
Together forever in my memory.
The Lover
I will always remember, everything we’ve been through,
I’ll share forever together with you.
You and I are a story, and the whole world should see
You mean more than anything else to me.
The Lover & The Muse
This is our story,
As our tale is told, our lives unfold.
And this is our story,
Each time we begin, Wishing it will never end.
The Muse
This time I can tell you, (Tell you…)
This isn’t pretend. (This isn't pretend.)
I know I love you, (Love you…)
From beginning to end.
The Lover
I will always remember, everything we’ve been through,
I’ll share forever together with you.
You and I are a story, and the whole world should see
You mean more than anything else to me.
The Lover & The Muse
This is our story,
As our tale is told, our lives unfold.
And this is our story,
Each time we begin, Wishing it will never end.
This is our story,
As our tale is told, our lives unfold.
And this is our story,
Each time we begin, Wishing it will never end.
The Muse
…as it begins to break like a worn out doll.
Never end.
Track Name: A Part, Apart (Brian Kohlhoff - An Obscure Signal)
05 - A Part, Apart
The Antagonist - Script
The Antagonizers - Script
Stay tonight, and fight with no surrender, for,
The reality, that has come to be, a part of me, (A part of me),
What is right, is only a contender for,
The ideas we, only want to see, as a part of we, (A part of we).
Its not the sun that circles around us, (No its not the sun that surrounds us…)
We are the cycle, elliptical 'round, (Cycling elliptical 'round…)
These are ideas that change what's around us.
(And as they change Universes are found.)
So, are yours, worth fighting, for?
The Debate
[The Debate Instrumental Role is performed by Brian Kohlhoff of An Obscure Signal.]
The Antagonizers
Do you believe that this world will never change?
The Mob
We stay the same.
The Antagonizers
Do you believe that your dreams are out of range?
The Mob
We're stuck in frame.
The Antagonist
Aren't you better than that?
Why regret all of that?
What's the matter can't you shatter all that's holding you back?
The Mob
You can't blame us for that.
Its the shame we combat.
And the latter that comes after that we fear to attack!
The Cosmonaut
Watching events unfold on Earth, from Space...
I'll be waiting for gravity to be, pulling me back,
I'll be running on empty till we, find the right track…
The Antagonist
Stay tonight, (Stay tonight…), and fight with no surrender for,
The reality, that has come to be, a part of me, apart of me.
What is right (What is right…), is only a contender of,
The ideas we, only want to see, as a part of we, apart of we.
The Antagonizers
Do you believe that this world will never change?
The Mob
We won't remain.
The Antagonizers
Do you believe that your dreams are out of range?
The Mob
We broke the frame.
The Antagonizers
Aren't you better than that?
Why regret all of that?
What's the matter can't you shatter all that's holding you back?
The Mob
…as only one member remains.
Nothing remains of that.
There's no shame to combat.
And the latter that came after set us free of attack!
Track Name: Perpetual Groove
06 - Perpetual Groove
The Passenger - Script
The Attendants - Script
Boarding the flight...
Everyone’s telling us,
Everything’s destined to fall. Crumbling!
But what they’re selling us,
Isn’t worth buying at all. They stumble the life we live!
Its unspoken,
But its still a part of us all.
Lines unbroken,
Progressing far from the time that we fall.
This vibration,
Measures our lives in the actions we take.
It’s creation,
Affected by all the decisions we make.
(Aaah, aaah, aaah.)
Though we all crumble, we will still perpetuate,
Far beyond all in which, we can participate.
We will live on in all that, which we propagate,
Destined to always be heard, as we resonate.
(Aaah, aaah, aaah.)
Though I will crumble, I will still perpetuate,
Far beyond all in which, I can participate.
I will live on in all that, which I propagate,
Destined to always be heard, as I resonate.
Open all eyes, past this disguise…
Here there’s a reality, without beginning or an ending,
Here there lies a sanity, never in need of any mending.
Unlock our mind, inside we’ll find…
Time and space don’t have a place, its what we fill it with that matters,
And everything that we embrace, and all the things we SHATTER.
Though we all crumble, we will still perpetuate,
Far beyond all in which, we can participate.
We will live on in all that, which we propagate,
Destined to always be heard, as we resonate.
Though we all crumble, we will still perpetuate,
Far beyond all in which, we can participate.
We will live on in all that, which we propagate,
Destined to always be heard, as we resonate.
Though I will crumble, I will still perpetuate,
Far beyond all in which, I can participate.
I will live on in all that, which I propagate,
Destined to always be heard, as I resonate.
Though we will crumble, we will still perpetuate,
Though we will crumble, we will still perpetuate,
Though we will crumble, we will still PERPETUATE!
Air Traffic Control
Preparing for departure...
Controller One
Knowledge is the key to understanding,
Without it, there is no complex society,
No human civilization,
No ever increasing standard of living.
No human civilization.
Controller Two
There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever,
For the divine, the supernatural,
The pseudoscientific,
Or anything of the speculative nature.
One requires evidence for the things that they believe in, in this world.
The Pilot
Take off, over the intercom...
They try to tell us what will come in the afterlife,
I'm more concerned with the present time,
This is all that we have, this is all that we have,
THIS IS ALL THAT WE HAVE!
The Passenger
In flight...
When I'm gone,
All that which made me strong,
Continues to live on,
Even as days grow long,
From peak of dusk till dawn,
Remember me in song!
I find, myself so far from the,
Shore line, rippling out on the,
Sea line, traveling to meet the,
Sky line, perpetuating for all time!
The Attendants
Preparing for arrival and landing...
Open all eyes, Past this disguise…
Unlock our mind, Inside we’ll find…

The Arcane Academics - Script
The Voices of Reason - Script
The Arcane Academics
Preparing for defense...
If we believe that this space is empty,
Then this world is awfully alone.
How do we find any meaning,
If the truth can't be known?
So no matter what the future's holdin',
The present moment is what we behold in,
(Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah...)
Trust in this and we'll be fine! (Trust in this and we'll be fine…)
Be forgiven of the past you're holdin',
See the world with the eyes we've chosen,
(Aaah, aaah, aaah, aaah...)
Trust in this and we'll be just fine! (Trust in this and we'll be just fine…)
Come with me, you can see,
Just what we, want to see!
We're elevated on the plane of entry,
Yet we're created just to depart,
Destined from ephemeral to eternity,
Within the heart.
So no matter what the future's holdin',
The present moment is what we behold in,
(Just have faith, we've never led you astray, so…)
Trust in this and we'll be fine! (Trust in this and we'll be fine…)
Be forgiven of the past you're holdin',
See the world with the eyes we've chosen,
(Its a waste of, life lived faithless, you can…)
Trust in this and we'll be fine! (Trust in this and we'll be fine!)
Let time pass us by!
Forget every time you want to ask why!
The Arcane Indoctrinator
Leader
[The Arcane Indoctrinator Character Role is performed by Gabriel Riccio of The Gabriel Construct.]
You have no eyesight… Yet you think,
That you can see! (You're missing senses!)
Your evidence is dogma! (Dogma!)
Your mind is clouded by false beliefs!
Simpleton hypocrite… (Hypocrite!)
Forcing your views upon the world!
Why didn't you learn from us!? (You learn from us!)
We have the answers, JUST DON'T ASK US QUESTIONS!
The Awakening of Reality
[The Awakening of Reality Instrumental Role is performed by Travis Orbin.]
The Awoken Voices of Reason
Preparing for attack…
The Artilect Robots
As they gain sentient awareness…
I know I can understand this world:
Our origin, our livelihood,
Our eventual death...
Our probability, our possibility, our potential,
Our consciousness, our sentience,
OUR AWARENESS!
-A nonorganic engineered life form created by humans becomes self aware, and more cognitive that it’s creators, the first of many…-
The Brilliantly Insane
As they succumb to the lunacy of implied reality compared to actual reality…
No bloody slavery,
We can't be, blissfully,
Ignorant, endlessly,
Fragmented, imagery,
We won't surrender, see,
We won't submit, or be,
Not taken, seriously,
'Till they know, we are free!
-A desperate gasp for air is heard, and somewhere, every few moments, a new mind breaks, powerless to adapt to modernity's demands...-
The Skeptically Educated
As they fractal through infinite wrong and finite right...
"I give myself purpose…"
"I find my meaning in truth…" ("I find my meaning in truth…")
"I am concerned about the true nature of this reality."
"There's no evidence!"
"I don't see the EVIDENCE!?"
"WAKE UP!!!"
-A rallying echoing cry rings out, demanding all who sleep in blissful ignorance of reality to rise and defend real truth from fallacy…-
The Reason Resonator
Leader
Surely, we won't be LIVING,
Lives based, on BELIEVING,
How could, you not want something...
MORE than what they're telling to you!
WHY have faith if you can go through!...
ALL THAT LIFE EXPERIENCE IS FOR!?
The Voices of Reason
Though we all crumble we will still perpetuate...
Far beyond all in which we can participate...
We will live on in all that which we propagate...
Destined to always be heard as we resonate...
The Voices of Reason
Resonate.
The Arcane Academics
Indoctrinate.
The Calm Before the Storm of War
[The Calm Before the Storm of War Instrumental Role is performed by Justin Gosnell of Vestascension.]
The Reason Resonator & The Voices of Reason
Attacking!
Go, now, and throw the line down,
Between what we could be, and what, we really see!
The Arcane Indoctrinator & The Arcane Academics
Defending!
You won't get through,
We'll ignore you,
And we'll brave through,
ALL OF TIME!
The Voices of Reason
PREPARE YOUR LOGIC AND REASON!!!
The Arcane Academics
With faith in hand,
The Voices of Reason
CALL FOR PROOF OR START CALLING OUT TREASON!!!
The Arcane Academics
Make your demand,
The Voices of Reason
LEAVE NOTHING LEFT TO BELIEVE IN!!!
The Arcane Academics
Wait for command,
The Voices of Reason
KNOW ONLY THAT KNOWLEDGE WILL FREE THEM!!!
The Arcane Academics
We will withstand!
The Arcane Academics
Come with me, you can see,
Just what we, want to see.
Come with me, you can see,
Just what we, want to see.
The Voices of Reason
Come with me.

Preparing to escape…
Wait, (Ah, ah, ah…)

Negate, (Ah, ah, ah…)
We can create what we is real;
Dictate, (Ah, ah, ah, AH…)
Bring to action what we feel.

We've, (We've…)
Come so close yet we must now,
Achieve;
Liberation and dictate:
Escape,
On to that which we create.
If we're really leaving this behind when,
We've crossed to the other side then,
We can say it,
We have made it, right?
And remember what we learned where we've been,
But, don't look back while we are leaving,

Track Name: Sorrow (Andy Gruhin)
09 - Sorrow
The Progressing One - Script
The Human Progression - Script
Inundate!
I feel the pressure.
I feel the weight.
I feel the weather.
I cannot wait,
In wonder of whether,
Or not I make,
My own life better.
Do I create?
How would I measure?
Or desecrate,
What causes displeasure,
Or even relate,
Without any leisure,
To undertake,
What makes a life better?
I will never toe the line,
Only living life that's mine,
Through the experiences,
I consign;
If you never go the distance,
Then I promise you will miss this:
If I never go the distance,
Then I promise I will miss this…
I'm not missing out on life, this time,
Or any time.
Let go the sorrow, it will tear our world apart,
We'll build tomorrow from the pieces of our heart,
We'll overflow onto our canvas from the start,
Now that we know to make our world a work of art.
Alleviate! (Alleviate!)
I raise the pressure.
I lift the weight. (I lift the weight!)
I brave the weather.
I no longer wait, (I no longer wait!)
In wonder of whether,
Or not I make, (Or not I make!)
My own life better. (BETTER!)
I can create, (I can create!)
Without any measure,
Or desecrate, (Or desecrate!)
What causes displeasure,
When I undertake, (When I undertake!)
All of life's pleasures,
Free of the hate, (Free of the hate!)
Of those who could never.
I will never toe the line,
Only living life that's mine,
Through the experiences,
I consign;
If you never go the distance,
Then I promise you will miss this:
If I never go the distance,
Then I promise I will miss this…
I'm not missing out on life, this time,
(No I'm not missing out…)
Or any time.

It sounds like you've stopped making sense? (Making sense…)
Always running around, claiming what you've found,
But you can't pay your debts?
(Pay your debts, pay your debt, pay, pay, pay…)
If you don't want to pray, (Pray…)
Or follow in the others' way, (Way…)
Well what if you're wrong, do you still belong,
When you've been led astray?

All of life's pleasures,
Free of the hate,

The Dreaming Cosmonaut
Envisioning his reentry through Earth's Atmosphere into The Atlantic Ocean - Through Optimism
Progress, because we're closing the distance.
We shout, yet offer little resistance.
Reach out, to this new world,
With persistence!
Maybe we've been crossing a line, from which we cannot return?
I can see the space in between us, shrinking with every word…
Could it be the lessening distance, that has pushed us apart?
Though we may seem closer together, we pull far…

The Dreaming Cosmonaut
Envisioning his reentry through Earth's Atmosphere into The Atlantic Ocean - Through Pessimism
[The Dreaming Cosmonaut: Pessimism Character Role is performed by Spencer Sotelo of Periphery.]
The scent of flesh igniting rattles me,
Welcoming for the journey home,
Soaring winds of fire collect their fee,
On a body so mortal I'm losing control!
The Human Idealism
Breaking each barrier down,
We are all chasing renown,
Wearing a heavy crown,
Tearing horizons down.
The Human Realism
But is this place ours to invade?
Or are we on a lost crusade?
We feel the space between us fade.
The vast expanses have decayed!
The Dreaming Cosmonaut
Envisioning his reentry through Earth's Atmosphere into The Atlantic Ocean - Through Realism
[The Dreaming Cosmonaut: Realism Character Role is performed by Spencer Sotelo of Periphery & Casprin Haruna of BEING.]
Don't stand down, we hold our ground,
And preserve who we are.
Rebound, and hold our ground,
When we've been pushed too far.
So I never…
Stand down, I hold my ground,
I preserve who we are.
Rebound, I hold my ground,
When I've been pushed too far.
Don't stand down, we hold our ground,
And preserve who we are.
Rebound, and hold our ground,
When we've been pushed too far.
So I never…
Stand down, I hold my ground,
I preserve who we are.
Rebound, I hold my ground,
When I've been pushed too far.
BEEN PUSHED TOO FAR!

The Terran
Imagine a drifting seed, at the whim of the current it sees,
Vast distances, lands, and seas, only able to capture what it,
Seizes upon, leading it on, forever gone,
Breathing on, until the, current's gone, forever gone.
Imagine the body alive, senses driving the animal live,
Through the air, land, and sea they arrive, yet its only through others that they keep,
Thriving on, until they, are gone, forever gone,
Subsiding on, all the, life withdrawn, forever gone.
The Cosmist
Imagine sentient existence, that we know,
All through our own experiences.
The only whims, (We're thrust upon…),
We aren't condemned, (To carry on…),
All the variables that we now rely on,
(Just can't compare…),
To the variables that we all belie on,
(Still unaware…)
The inevitably opening eyes will see...
The Terrans
Control is a bitter illusion, despite whatever our conclusion,
We must all abide, by the wind and the tide.
The Cosmists
Though the winds will go their separate ways, I find,
Myself being pulled apart in ways, aligned...
The Cosmist
…To colors blind, so uninclined,
To bear in mind…
The Cosmists
I'm unconfined,
This time!
The Terran
The variables become, an infinite unending spectrum,
So then do we just succumb, or do we pursue the total sum?
The Cosmists
In our little lives, we are all pursuing meaning,
Rarely it arrives, without one of us intervening,
All of it.
So step, out of my way now,
If anything, I'll intervene, on anything, that I can glean,
My hands around, these hands around!
Thought I, represent ways how,
We're progressing, life spreading wing, still what we bring, is anything,
But common ground…
No common ground!!!

No time to waste, future's in place,
It won't be waiting, if we don't arrive,
At the right time and pace, for the,
Path we've embraced, faith interlaced,
Racing to what we believe, will be everything,
That we foretaste, when we,
Create this place, beliefs we chase,
Never concerned whether, or not our,
Beliefs have been put in, something misplaced.
We're ASCENDING!
We got it wrong, absently,
We prolong, devotee,
All life long, endlessly,
Carry on, can't we see?
The Cosmists
Wait one moment!
We proponent:
There's no reason to let faith guide you,
When everything you need is right inside you,
Open up, your MIND!
What we feel, no matter where we're from,
Will succumb, to the inevitability of;
What is real, and we cannot ignore,
Anymore, The Singularity, of what's in store!
The Cosmist
Humankind, shapers of the land,
We find, the only ones,
Inclined, to create a world,
designed…
The Singularity.

Will succumb, to the inevitability of;

Anymore, The Singularity, of what's in store!
No time to waste, future's embrace,
We won't be waiting, if you don't arrive,
At the right time and place, for the,
Path we can trace, evidence based,
Racing to what we can know, to be everything.
That we foretaste, when we,
Founded this place, knowledge we chase,
Always concerned whether, or not our,
Knowledge has been put in, something misplaced.
We're PROGRESSING!
What we feel, no matter where we're from,
Will succumb, to the inevitability of;
What is real, and we cannot ignore,
Anymore, The Singularity, of what's in store!

The Lover, Heartbroken - Script
Illuminate, there is no pressure, there is no weight, there is no weather,
We no longer wait, in wonder of whether, or not we make, our own world better.
I will always remember, everything we've been through,
I'll share forever together with you.
You and I are a story, and the whole world should see,
You mean more than anything else to me.

Come with me, you can see…
So no matter what the future's holding',
The present moment is what we behold in,
Trust the reason in your mind!
There's always journeys to undertake, fate,
Never had say so long as we, negate,
We can create what is real, dictate,
Make imagination real!

The Locus Lesson - (Script)
When we're gone, all that which made us strong,
Continues to live on, even as days grow long,
From peak of dusk till dawn, remember us in song.
Remember us in song.
Remember us in song!
Since we're really leaving this behind, when,
We've crossed to the other side, then, (And we will never return…)
We can say it! We have made it right! (That is the lesson we learn…)
We'll remember what we learned where we've been,
We won't look back when they are leaving, (And we will never return…)
We will say it, we will make it right! (That is the lesson we learn.)

This time we can tell you,
Open all eyes,

Past this disguise,

Unlock our minds,
We'll see the end...
Inside we'll find…
We will always remember, everything we've been through. (It is a part of us all…)
We'll share forever, together with you. (Progressing far from the fall…)
You and us are a story, and the whole world should see, (Affecting actions we take…)
You mean anything else to me! (Changed by deacons we make!)

The Dualistic Cosmonaut - Script
Take our hands, and hold on tightly,
For the fight that's ahead.
Now we know,
Where we stand, and won't take it lightly,
With these bombs overhead…
Please explain the separation, our composure now defines,
We create extreme relation, between what we are inside…
The Equilibrated Cosmonaut - Script
The Enpowered Cosmonaut - Script
And now, we know,
That this is a right instead of a privilege, we have seen,
The more, we think,
The greater our minds help us to, be who we want to be.
We're on, the brink,
Of making this evolution, more than reality,
So if, we think,
This can't just be handed to you…
Bring us back home, to the world that we've known,
How have we grown, from the people we've known?

Floating upward,
Searching forward,
Reaching inward,
For our home!
I’ll been waiting for gravity, to be,
Pulling us back.
We've been running on empty, till we,
Found the right track.
We'll be waiting...
Found the right track.
We'll be waiting...
Found the right track.
We'll be waiting...
Found the right track.
We'll be waiting…
...Found the right track…
