The rebirth of intelligent life will restore this planet's cosmic status.
As the surface draws into focus, every variance and nuance realized.

The simple birth.

Time is moving forward.
Elapse. Evolve. Expand. Adapt.
Adaptation runs parallel with surviving global conflict.

Sustained permanence proves imperfect existence, integrated.
Balance is reached between the parent star.

Endless motion.
Now the experience is long gone.

We won't forget it's entrancing stare, as long as we recall it's grip.

Stellar forces are keeping us alive.

    General CommentPersonally I like the new contortionist and the new eyes closed. Technically this song has different lyrics, but the same instrumentation as Eyes closed. This version has clean vocals before the incredible solo. The vocalist seriously doesn't sound ANY different from to old one, not just opinion it's true. and to top it off, the lyrics, and the band have become amazingly science fiction.

    Sounds like it talks about the big bang theory and how we got created, and how the sun keeps us alive. That's all I can gather

    My InterpretationThis is a completely concept album, but here is my interpretation:

    "The rebirth of intelligent life will restore this planet's cosmic status.
    As the surface draws into focus, every variance and nuance realized."

    ** The evolution/transformation of a species and planets will create peace and harmony. What is hidden deep inside will become obvious to be confronted, so that one can advance.

    "The simple birth."

    "Time is moving forward.
    Elapse. Evolve. Expand. Adapt.
    Adaptation runs parallel with surviving global conflict."

    ** Time is moving with or without. Each second is a different moment. Expand your consciousness to be able to adapt to rebirth.

    "Sustained permanence proves imperfect existence, integrated.
    Balance is reached between the parent star."

    ** One must know the imperfect before knowing, or being the perfect; the balance. You can't define one without the other.

    "Endless motion.
    Now the experience is long gone."

    ** To take advantage. After the rebirth, you might regret not wanting to experience all that you could.

    "We won't forget it's entrancing stare, as long as we recall it's grip."

    ** To not forget that you are not alone, and never will be.

    "Stellar forces are keeping us alive."

    ** There could be so much that is unseen that keeps us moving forward, to never give up.

    General CommentI find that this song is broken up into 3 general sections:

    "The rebirth of intelligent life will restore this planet's cosmic status.
    As the surface draws into focus, every variance and nuance realized."

    I'm not 100% sure on this one, whether it's referencing to another species that lived before us that was intelligent, or if it's more along the lines of some pleiadian/billy meier stuff, either way, I believe this foreshadows the remainder of the song while giving context to the title.

    "Time is moving forward.
    Elapse. Evolve. Expand. Adapt.
    Adaptation runs parallel with surviving global conflict."

    This is pretty simple, talking about growth and flourishing. Not sure if 'global conflict' is referring to war, or if it's more primitive and considering the competition of species to be a global conflict. The word parallel describes the necessary balance of adaptation/conflict. Without balance some/many species will die.

    "Sustained permanence proves imperfect existence, integrated.
    Balance is reached between the parent star.

    Endless motion.
    Now the experience is long gone.

    We won't forget it's entrancing stare, as long as we recall it's grip.

    Stellar forces are keeping us alive. "

    The focus definitely shifts to the sun here, the sustained permanence is the fact that we rotate on this massive rock around the sun and it has/will continue to occur. Since the motion is endless, our concept of the experience itself has disappeared and we now (generally speaking) take the sunrise/sunset for granted and think nothing of it. The rest is pretty simple, things (in space) that we have no control over keep us alive.

    General CommentThis is a concept album? Well that would explain why all of exoplanet's lyrics have been sci-fi based. Personally I thought it was about how the earth was born and has evolved since then, also adding a little bit of the whole "we destroyed the earth" theme. But I think if it's really a concept album, we'll have to wait for the whole album to come out before we piece it together.
