Enter the Void

lyrics

Long day, so I'm kickin' back and I grab my favorite coffee mug
Sittin' down with a bottle of stars, pour myself a cup of the Milky Way
Quarks and atoms, carbon and models, swirl it, let my galaxy breathe
Big bang now in the morning, lights flash 'round like it's Christmas Eve
After that first sip I set the cup down, it sank into the table top
Wondering why the force broke pine, cup skewered out just like a shish-kebab
Luminous electromagnetic and gravitational forces
began to form the ceramic into a black hole
Everything inside my apartment including dishes and garbage
began to slide across the floor like I lost control
vision turns to redshift, wavelengths increase distance
as I'm pulled into the blackness
My extremities become rivers of noise as I cascade galactic everglades
Fingertips touch the top of the visible spectrum, all hate leaves, there is no violence
only violet. There is no silence, only diamonds, push-pinned into
into a black canvas
Lost all thoughts and all my balance
dropped my face like a filthy habit
Deoxyribonucleic acid began to pour out

Spall erupts as the radiation of a thousand stars enter my body
Or what's left of it, I no longer have skin, I got quantum foam
Unlike my thoughts, they're so small that they're never shown
This space has no walls but I feel at home, lights flash beside my ethereal eyelids
I think I'm god, but looking back, I see Osiris
I see slaves building and killing and Constantine and the willing
the Renaissance and the filling of every womb on the planet
at once like I must have planned it. I see the trees that are planted
Grandiose technology mixed with classical mythology
Kids playing games in a hotel lobby, kids grow up and lay down in the bedrock
and then it stopped.

Open up your eyes and let the old one die (x4)

My spine splits like string cheese being eaten and I cease to breathe
Tenderly released from bodily prisons and ignite in firestorms of light and steam
Stars whirl and never stay in the same place, arms curl and pretty soon they're erased
leaving nothing but the soul in deep space, twenty- thousand years and everything's a clean slate
I reach the end of the line, destroy the concept of time
look down and to my surprise, my arm is dark matter
I begin to realize that I'm no longer alive
And time flies past my eyes like I'm stuck in a turbine
10,000 lives and each one's as spontaneous as the last
I'm at the restaurant at the end of the universe with one sip left in my glass
The waiters compress into the bottles of space wine, I smell
burnt steak, iron metal, and aged pine
Who knew I'd see math at the big crunch while I wine and dine?
My body divides into a line and two circles, and I'm tasting purple
I jump through a portal, conceptually immortal
The dinosaurs dance as I run through the hour circle
Buildings pop horizons like hair through epidermis
And enormous heat from cores blast me like a gas furnace
My skin folds over my lips and eyes, atoms start shifting and I
sit back inside my kitchen into my current life
Same clothes, same hair, same coffee cup that's empty
Only thing that's different is Orion's Belt that's been burned on me
I traveled the universe and gathered information and a presence omni
only thing I have to prove it are three freckles that space has kissed on me
I won't know what tomorrow will bring, but I do know how the past will seem
in line for the inside dream, wait until the fat lady sings
There's no need to go to bed with one sip left in my cup
I'll lean back in my chair and let my galaxy erupt
