I recently saw this anime and enjoyed it a lot, one of the many things that impressed me, is the music, what do you think?
 
Translation of my favourite: 
 
Missing Link, ooh
Missing Link, ooh
A missing link

An unconnected me,
Yet a me continuing to change
Oh heavenly bodies,
Why am I
In this world?

Missing Link, ooh
Missing Link, ooh
A missing link

An unconnected me,
Yet a connected power
Oh illusions,
Why am I
Here right now?

I never wanted to be born,
And yet I was
My heart is just like
An object to be used

To be born and die,
To be born and vanish,
To repeat this,
How absurd!

An unconnected me,
Yet a connected me

Look, now the vanished me is singing

Look, now the vanished me is laughing

Look, now the vanished me is petrified

Look, now the vanished me is living

Missing Link!  Missing Link!
 
     
This songs are pretty much about all the history of the earth from many differents points of view.
 
Here is another:

Astrologic eras, primeval oceans, erosion, deposits
Three billion years, birth of life, geologic eras
Cambrian, Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian
Stromatolite, bacteria, collenia
Triassic, Jurassic, Cretaceous

Lycopsida, selaginella, pleuromeia
Caytonia, bennetites, ammonite
Marine rose, marine lily,
Marine apple, marine buds
Marine angel, marine mirror
Marine gate, marine dragonfly
Carboniferous, Permian, Paleozoic

Marine you, marine me
Paleozoic within the flesh
Continuing to live
Continuing to die
The Paleozoic tells the story

Like the whale
Like the dolphin
Like the seal
I'll go to the bottom of the ocean, the marine me.
At the bottom of the ocean lies a grand history.
The bottom of the ocean, where I will be myself.

Ammonite!
