(« Primeval Center by Christopher Stewart)



On a background of Wall Street Bailouts and Large Hadron Colliders, « Void » paints sunyata, the Buddhist concept of emptiness.


From Wikipedia :


In Buddhism, the realization of emptiness of inherent existence is a “state of pure consciousness” in which the practitioner realizes all particular objects and images to be appearances of the subjective mind.


The song is made up of twelve short verses, one longer vocal interlude, and no chorus. The vocal sections are tied together with short instrumental passages and one longer instrumental bridge.


While most of the lyrics attempt to highlight the failings of fundamental materialism, the last four verses focus on the realization of the state of consciousness wherein objects are seen for what they truly are.


Down ! In the here and the now
Fell flat on the face
Cheated by reason
Desolate in space

Pondering matter
Getting to the core
Couldn't find any
Deep reality

Drown ! Committing the fault
Non-finality
Colliding hadrons
Just add variety

Trying to manifest
Out of vacuity
Root unbreakable ?
Who thinks magically !

Crash ! Banks are in the red
Wall Street in a slump
Who's bailing them out ?
Ripped off at the pump !

Trying to manifest
Out of vacuity
Wealth unlimited ?
Who thinks magically !

Null ! Nobody-zero
Fundamentally
Materialism fails
To set people free

Universe of words
Walls of mentation
Discriminating
Occult liberation

Reasonable as they may seem
When clung to will all theory
Serve to send the good intended
Down into Yama's abode

Up, to the neck in the void
No more artifice
Stopped being schizoid
Found no precipice

Emptiness in all
All in everything
Nihilism is
Not comprehending

Stop and recognize
Objects are mirrors
Subject realize !
Self-actualize !

No cause nor effect
Coming and going
This world I project
Is enlightening
