Now there's smoke on the horizon
and the clouds are looking violent
There's a future in need of a frame
Compass spinning in my brain
From the first song of The Earthlings. I've taken Vedder's first words on the album as an inspiration. There's a song with Elton John later in the album, and I always liked this Elton John song...evoking the strange lonliness of not being who they think you are, but not knowing who you think you are either. And I think it seems to be about Time, too. 
Are you ready? Ready for lift off? Take off. Find a horizon....
