Song: We Are All Connected (The Cover)

This is my take on the fantastic work by John Boswell. All credit and praise, other than on my interpretation of the song, belongs to him!

Lyrics Print

We are all connected
To each other biologically
To the earth chemically
To the rest of the universe atomically

I think nature's imagination is so much greater than man's
She's never gonna let us relax

We live in an in between universe where things change all right
But according to patterns, rules, or, as we call them, laws of nature

I'm this guy standing on a planet
And really I'm just a speck (I'm just a speck)
Compared with a star
The planet is just another speck

To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There's billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We're made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself

Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We've travelled this way before
And there is much to be learned

We are all connected
To each other biologically
To the earth chemically
To the rest of the universe atomically

It's elevating and exhilarating
To discover that we live in a universe
Which permits the evolution of molecular machines
As intricate and subtle as we

(Musical interlude)

I know that the molecules in my body are traceable to phenomena in the cosmos
That makes me wanna grab people in the streets
And say "Have you heard this?"

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We're made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself

There's this tremendous mess of waves all over in space
Which is the light bouncing around the room
And going from one thing to the other

And it's all really there
Really really there
But you gotta stop and think about it
About the complexity to really get the pleasure

And it's all really there
Really really there
The inconceivable
Nature of nature

To think about all of this
To think about the vast emptiness of space
There's billions and billions of stars
Billions and billions of specks

The beauty of a living thing is not the atoms that go into it
But the way those atoms are put together
The cosmos is also within us
We're made of star stuff
We are a way for the cosmos to know itself

Across the sea of space
The stars are other suns
We've travelled this way before
And there is much to be learned
