(The sequence found
But pushed away
I’ll love nothing more
Drink plant eat drink
Take my time
Drink plant eat drink
Take my time)

(A stage set for
A plague of primates
In the sky, in the wind, in the soil
I’m waiting for
On my cloud bank
To rain and rain and rain on the world)

Atoms smash
Seeds hit ground
The craters birth new plants
They swallow my friends

A single seed crashes into me
I’m lifted by my trashing strings
What am I?
What have I combined?
What am I?
What have I combined?

I’m a spiral
I think quickly
I expand
My strings grow wings and hands
I expand
My strings grow wings and hands
I’m a spiral
I’m spiraling

Atoms smash
Seeds hit ground
The craters birth new plants
They scream and spiral towards
Deep space dark mass
They swallow my friends
They swallow my friends

Stop
This must be hell
A universe grows in my self
Oh, I will let it grow
It will stretch my strings
And in that pitch-black brightness
I become everything

Atoms smash
Seeds hit ground
The craters birth new plants
They scream and spiral towards
Deep space dark mass
They swallow my friends
They swallow my friends
Atoms smash
They swallow my friends
Atoms smash
They swallow all of them

    General Commentthe song is about evolution....

    I’m a spiral
    I think quickly
    I expand
    My strings grow wings and hands
    I expand
    My strings grow wings and hands
    I’m a spiral
    I’m spiraling

    to me the " I " in this is DNA , the spiral refers to the double helix and expanding and growing wings and hands is a reference to the evolution of different species from simple atoms smashing
    other words such as 'sequence' and 'combine' refer to DNA aswell
    " a plague of primates" meaning the introduction of humans to the world the word plague refering to all the damage we've done

    General CommentI remember reading somewhere that this song is about how alien lifeforms actually planted life on earth.

    General Comment"Life is an interstellar communication network. Life is disseminated through the galaxies in the form of nucleotide templates. These "seeds" land on planets, are activated by solar radiation. and evolve nervous systems. The bodies which house and transport nervous systems and the reproductive seeds are constructed in response to the atmospheric and gravitational characteristics of the host planet, the crumbling rock upon which we momentarily rest."
