Lyrics

Inches away in the fifth dimension

There’s another human being

Flits in and out beyond comprehension

From a parallel cosmic brane.

She appears in an apparition

That is seldom, if ever seen,

From a skein of unexplained existence with a wormhole in between.

 

Wonderfully sublime celestial,

Extraordinary terrestrial.

 

So many times she has flipped me out with an act I can’t explain

I hear you ask now, what’s the dimension?

Well in science it’s called a brane, brane, brane, brane.

 

Wonderfully sublime celestial

Extraordinary terrestrial

Living an existence that’s tangential

Wonderfully sublime celestial.

 

I’m in love with a girl from the fifth dimension, a different world

A strobe, a shadow she’s projecting from another time, a different space.

 

Wonderfully sublime celestial

Extraordinary terrestrial

Living an existence that’s tangential

Wonderfully sublime celestial.

Notes

This borrows in musical style from the early funk of James Brown, with a psychedelic rock twist.

Dom Reynolds:

“The theme of this song is inspired by a book, Absolution Gap, written my cousin, the sci-fi writer, Alastair Reynolds. In his book, Absolution Gap. Al riffs on the idea of there existing another, fifth dimension, a parallel universe, in which aliens are seeking to find a portal into our own, with potentially disastrous consequences.

“I thought it would be amusing to play with the idea of the imaginary friend, with the sci-fi twist of having an alien girl-friend from a parallel universe. I named her Celestial.’

 

We made an amazing, ot-of-this-world video of this song, starring Kylie Earl, directed by Jennifer Lions and produced by Alistair Winter. (Click the video above)
