The most astounding fact is the knowledge
that the atoms that comprise life on Earth,
the atoms that make up the human body,
are traceable to the crucibles that cooked light elements
into heavy elements in their core
under extreme temperatures and pressures.
These stars, the high mass ones among them,
went unstable in their later years.
They collapsed and then exploded scattering their enriched guts across the galaxy.
Guts made of carbon, nitrogen, oxygen and all the fundamental ingredients of life itself.

So that when I look up at the night sky and I know that yes,
we are part of this universe, we are in this universe.
But perhaps more important than both of those facts,
is that the universe is in us.

The first EP, "Bananageddon", will be released over the course of 2012.
