Track Name: The Mountain
You're gonna get older
Oh you're gonna change
You can try to fight it
But you won't be the same
You're gonna get wiser
And your hairs gonna gray
You're gonna get better
Every single day

Step up to the future
Lean into the wave
Come down from the mountain
And see how we play
Break through to the present
Stop pushing the tide
You can fight it all you want
But it won't buy you time
Track Name: First Contact

Track Name: Big Harry
And there he stood atop the grand rapids of the cosmos, staring down our universe as if it were an animal encroaching on his territory. Big Harry, the thing of legend, the beast of myth, the wonder from down under, but only while it is above you. His finger pressed down on the consciousness of our collective being, reading the pulse of our thoughts, creeping into the back of our minds at one point or another and when the time came lo and behold he did not continue and yet instead released his hold on ourselves leaving us to wonder, why is Big Harry so scary? And tell me, how can you fear what you cannot comprehend?

Oh to be unaware of the reality that has descended upon our timeline. They say ignorance is bliss, but how can you ignore the presence of the largest Harry when you encounter him across all of your beings. Time, space, and reality are mere obstacles to him in his backyard, mere things he steps around to avoid stepping in and trailing them in his abode. He is inconceivable and yet easily envisioned; a large Harold of things unknown and terrifying, constantly begging the question, what is Big Harry? A creature? A feeling? Possibly both and likely neither, for it is not of our world, not to be thought of by those with sound mind. Just like the center of a lollipop with chocolate at its core, some things man was never meant to question or learn, and despite this we still try.
