Track Name: A Gift From Theia
Oh mighty Titaness:
Theia of many names,
Mother of the moon,
Selene bears your smile.
We thank you for Luna:
Our light that shines at night,
Orbiting companion,
Among the stars (that have a different birth).

Gravity:
She danced along the Earth’s orbit.
Collision,
And a new sphere is born.

Magma dust and frozen rock
Explode into the air:
Luna takes her form
When Theia gently kissed the Earth.

Oh, mighty moon:
Our shining silver lantern
Glows with the light of her golden crown.
Her rays beam clear:
All-wise, all-seeing eye of night:
A satellite
To call our own.

Oh mighty Titaness:
Theia of many names,
Mother of the moon,
Selene bears your smile.
We thank you for Luna:
Our light that shines at night,
Orbiting companion,
Among the stars (that have a different birth).

Gravity:
She danced along the Earth’s orbit.
Collision,
And a new sphere is born.

Magma dust and frozen rock
Explode into the air:
Luna takes her form
When Theia gently kissed the Earth.
Track Name: Lurking in the Boötes Void
Empty sphere,
Where these creatures hide.
Expanding across the universal plane:
Relics of an old race,
As ancient as the universe:
Artifacts that feast upon the stars.

Suns trapped in Dyson-spheres:
Automated megastructures:
Architecture to harvest the stars.
Light-years of emptiness,
Dark matter's force increases:
More substance to nourish the void.

Artificial intelligence
(calculating to)
Create colossuses,
(A virus-like)
Hivemind
Procreating to procreate
An unnatural empire,
Reaching across galaxies:
A desert in the cosmic sea.

Unrelenting mass production;
Lay the framework for extinction:
Millions of machines that move as one.
Damage that can't be undone:
A beast that doesn’t think or feel;
Only exist to multiply:
Lurking in the Boötes void.

The void is growing larger:
(a barren)
Darkness in an ocean of light.
More Dyson structures created,
More resources consumed.
Unrelenting as time itself,
Poisoning all it touches:
Absorb the galaxy,
Absorb the universe.

Ancient evil lurking in the darkness,
A mystery consisting of nothing:
Lurking in the Boötes void,
Dark matter pushing us further.
The unknowns of our own universe:
Lurking in the Boötes void.

Locked in time,
Corroded stardust:
Reach out for answers inside.
Light-years from us,
Yet drawing closer,
Lurking in the Boötes void.
Track Name: Caught in the Ergosphere
Trapped:
This devastating swan song.
Imploded star:
Ripping, tearing,
Force of an absolute dark:
Light cannot escape,
Manipulating space and time.
Black:
Gravity contorting,
Challenging known physics:
Infinite regression of distortions.
Sphere:
Shaping the cosmos:
Its greatest power
Is its greatest mystery,

Traveled too close to the event horizon,
Our thirst for knowledge will drown us this time.
Captured by a force (that) nothing can escape,
Pulling us in the sphere.
Space dragging by negative energy:
Penetrating the static surface:
Infinite rotations, infinite energies.

Revolutions growing,
Universal Power,
Physics contorting,
Caught in the ergosphere.

Time is slowing,
Revolutions growing,
Universal Power,
Physics contorting.

In this moment, I leave my flesh behind:
Transcended in the center of this wormhole,
Unlocked the secrets of the universe.
I re-materialize in this unknown galaxy:
A portal to other worlds or other realities:
It’s ripping and tearing, contorting,
As we travel through alternate dimensions.
