Check out the in-studio video for "Brain Break" :


I can see two galaxies colliding before my eyes
Am I anxious of the fact
that this I’m viewing is the past?
Further and further we drift from each other

Will we ever crunch back again
to singularity?
A paradox of gravity:
are we too dense to know infinity?

Give your brain a break
For your noggin’s sake
Wring it like a sponge behind your eyes
Sing it from your lungs to hide your cries
(Lay it on the table ‘til it dries)

I can hear two melodies conspiring before my ears
Am I proud to be adept? The evidence I do adapt

Further and further, one thought to another
Soaking and wringing, unspoken now singing

We'll never be this young again
So innocent and pure
Will ever stop picturing
great things billions of years my senior?
