Track Name: Tickets, Please
"The possibility of physical and mental collapse is now very real. No sympathy for the Devil, keep that in mind. Buy the ticket, take the ride."

-Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998)
Track Name: Cascades
"Death is that state in which one exists only in the memory of others. Which is why it is not an end. No goodbyes. Just good memories."

-Lieutenant Tasha Yar; "Star Trek: The Next Generation: Skin of Evil" (Season 1, Episode 22) (1988)
Track Name: Bombs Away
"It's practically standing still now. They've dropped ropes out of the nose of the ship, and it's been taken ahold of down on the field by a number of men.

The back motors of the ship are just holding it, just enough to keep it from...

It burst into flames! Get out of the way! Get out of the way! Get this, Charlie! Get this, Charlie! It's fire and it's crashing! It's crashing terrible! Oh, my! Get out of the way, please! It's burning, bursting into flames and is falling on the mooring mast, and all the folks agree that this is terrible. This is the worst of the worst catastrophes in the world! Oh, it's crashing... oh, four or five hundred feet into the sky, and it's a terrific crash, ladies and gentlemen. There's smoke, and there's flames, now, and the frame is crashing to the ground, not quite to the mooring mast... Oh, the humanity, and all the passengers screaming around here!

I told you... I can't even talk to people... around there. It's... I can't talk, ladies and gentlemen. Honest, it's just laying there, a mass of smoking wreckage..."

-Herbert Morrison

"Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world's first bionic man."

-Oscar Goldman; The Six Million Dollar Man
Track Name: On The Brighter Side
“We live together, we act on, and react to, one another; but always and in all circumstances we are by ourselves. The martyrs go hand in hand into the arena; they are crucified alone. Embraced, the lovers desperately try to fuse their insulated ecstasies into a single self-transcendence; in vain. By its very nature every embodied spirit is doomed to suffer and enjoy in solitude. Sensations, feelings, insights, fancies—all these are private and, except through symbols...incommunicable. We can pool information about experiences, but never the experiences themselves.

The mind is its own place, and the places [place is] inhabited by the insane and the exceptionally gifted...

-Aldous Huxley; The Doors of Perception (1954)

Sample taken from the following video:
Track Name: Sunset Manor
"I get it. It's nice up here. You can just shut down all the systems, turn out all the lights...just close your eyes and tune out everyone.

I mean, what's the point of going on? What's the point of living? But still, it's a matter of what you do now...

Sit back, enjoy the ride...

Hey, Ryan? It's time to go home."

-Matt Kowalski (George Clooney); Gravity (2013)
Track Name: The Come Up
"Are you tripping man?"

"Yeah, yeah, you can tell?"

-Enter the Void (2009)
Track Name: Learning To Fly
"Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with the chemistry of life. So that we are all connected to each other biologically, to the earth the rest of the universe atomically.

That's kinda cool! That makes me smile and I actually feel quite large at the end of that. It's not that we are better than the universe, we are part of the universe. We are in the universe and the universe is in us."

-Neil DeGrasse Tyson

Sample taken from "The Legend of Ashitaka Theme [End Credit]" by Joe Hisaishi.
Track Name: Boa
"The Western listener will appreciate, and enjoy our music more, if he listens with an open and relaxed mind, without expecting to hear harmony, counterpoint, or other elements prominent in Western music.

Neither should our music be thought of as akin to jazz, despite the improvisation and exciting rhythms present in both kinds of music."

-"An Introduction To Indian Music" from the album "The Sounds of India" (1968)
Track Name: Butterfly Effect
"Hey man, I'd think twice about what you're doing. You could wake up a lot more fucked up than you are now."

"More fucked up than I am?"

-The Butterfly Effect (2004)
