Life is a sieve through which my anarchy streams
Resolving itself into words
Chaos is the score upon which reality is written
The timeless, swirling, gyroscopic horde

Delirium of disorder

I am just an atom in an ectoplasmic sea
Without direction or a reason to exist
The anechoic nebula rotating in my brain
Has persuaded me contritely to persist

    I think that by saying this they are saying that the world is not perfect, we are not a utopia, we do not have laws and we essentially live in chaos. Sort of goes against intelligent design and religion IMO. The universe isnt as perfect as we think.

    "Yeah! I am just an atom in an ectoplasmic sea
    Without direction or a reason to exist.
    The anechoic nebula rotating in my brain
    Is persuading me, contritely, to persist."

    This is very nihilistic. It's saying that life as we know it is going to end someday, and that we have no reason to exist, the reason why we do exist is because human nature includes survival.

    General Comment:A great atheist song.
    BR shows here that doesnt believe in destiny, faith, or anything that may put an order or a patch in our lives. "Chaos is the score upon which reality is written". Is a very good quote. Maybe someone with more knowledge oh the Chaos Theory may add something more.

    "I am just an atom in an ectoplasmic sea
    Without direction or a reason to exist."
    There´s no meaning of life, once theres no order.

    This can also be interpreted as Existentialist in nature. True existentialism, being a philosophy with neither supports nor denies religion. In fact, existentialism is actually heavily mode up of the idea of faith, but it is faith of the unknown.

    General Comment:I like this song, but there is not a lot said here. It is really just a reiteration of the belief that entropy governs more than gaseous molecules.
