Lyrics:
All in my imagination
No ground beneath my feet
Illusory people greet me
I pass them on the street

Effervescent ozone
Hangs like perfume in the air
A hand stretched out in greeting
But I know it isn't really there

Voices in the ether
All skin and bones
And I just don't care

I ain't my brother's keeper
The price we pay
It just ain't fair

Await this retribution
Cause What I've got is scarce and lean
Our lips around pollution
You fear a price you just ain't seen

My hands upon the altar
Oh, can you hear? Or should I scream?
Afraid your step will falter
Is it the end or is this just a dream?

Voices in the ether
All skin and bones
And I just don't care

I ain't my brother's keeper
The price we pay
It just ain't fair

Rex Yehudi (shoham) gave feedback to Ian Marquis for “Recursive”:
I like the effects you've got on these vocals. Very neat composition, overall. Somehow, I feel as if there's a little extra energy that you could put into the vocals -- from a performance perspective.

I'm a vocalist myself, so I know that that might sound kind of vague. Again, I think that this is a very good piece, and very well produced. I'd like to hear just a good bit more conviction in the vocal performance. Very exciting, and very promising. Thank you. -Shoham

Hey, thank you! I'm not the strongest singer, so I try to do what I can with my voice. Sometimes I don't know how far I should push it. Sometimes I don't know how far I CAN push it. But I'm glad you liked the track!
