Die Textzeile "Schon der kleinste Gedanke genügt, um ein Leben zu erfüllen" von Ludwig Wittgenstein aus "Kultur und Wert" von 1946 besteht in der englischen Übersetzung aus lauer einsilbig erklingenden Wörtern; ("How small a thought it takes to fill a whole life"). Die Soprane singen ihren Part mit je einer Note pro Silbe, die Tenöre tragen lange Melismen auf einer einzigen Silbe vor. Nach einer a-capella-Einleitung doppeln die beiden elektrischen Orgeln durchgehend die Singstimmen und liefern die ergänzenden Harmonien; später setzt das Schlagwerk ein und artikuliert die Verlagerungen in den zwei- und dreizeitigen Rhythmen der Singstimmen
