"The Holy Filament" as written by and Trevor R Dunn....
In fiber optic illusion
The flickering eyes
By fluorescent lights
Supplicate before machines,
Self-reflecting

The legend of modernity:
The phosphenes explode
God's eternal strobe
Through the holy filament,
Graven image

    General CommentThis has something to do with a space time theory
    dont know exactly but its a theory against the big bang
    that the universe wasnt made out of nothing in a sudden explosion but there was to begging nor end,
    the theory is something like space time is a continuous string
    or something
    dont listen to me im stoopid :(

    My InterpretationI know that Trevor Dunn wrote this one and someone said it is about string theory. I don't know much about that. I really dig this song, and in my own way this made sense to me.

    Our dream world today,
    we, us or the entranced
    pray to the new God
    in our own narcissistic ways.

    The old story is new
    That God created light,
    told with a new sorcery of lies,
    Consciousness through mass memory (www)
    Carved out a new age of idolatry.

    General CommentA "light" theme is all over the song, therefore it resembles big bang and it's somehow combining big bang and creation theories, or describing probabilistic existence of life in a more poetic/dramatic way because you can feel both the cold of space and divinity.
