Sequitur. It follows. Logically, inevitably.
Fourteen billion years later, matter, energy and consciousness have organized themselves into this precious, unrepeatable, irrepressible, self-evident moment of potentiality. There’s you, whatever electronic device you’re using and encoded whispers of wonderful music traversing great distances and dancing in your ears. Yes, it’s true; it has all come down to this. And the next fourteen billion years start right here, right now. Sequitur.
I hope this track brings you as much joy to listen to as it brought me to create.
Now you see it and now you don’t,
goin’ through walls and floors.
Through the ages and out of time;
it’s only matter, it’s no matter at all.
It created this in its travels,
comin’ through the void.
It isn’t said why it happened;
The only reason is One.
Pleasure and pain are all there is;
the illusion is so clear.
Heart on sleeve dissolves all power
through the needle’s eye and ear.
Follow it back to the zero field;
there’s only metaphors and puns.
It tells us then that there is no seeking
’cause what connects us is One.
