The first two movements, Signs & Everything Must Go, invoke the warning signs of a world out of control. In the midst of these revelations, chaos ensues and the existential feeling of dread overwhelms the population. Disquietude characterizes the state of the world as the realization settles that humanity must leave the Earth to survive, which creates a sense of unease and anxiety. In an attempt to escape the inevitable fate of the dying world, humanity departs from Earth to embark on a journey into the stars.

The final movement, Distant Lights, is a hopeful song of prayer and peace as humanity ventures off into the void, with distant lights guiding their way.
