From Bruce Hornsby on Apple Music:

“I might call it an atheist hymn. It’s hymn-like but very stark, and not standard hymn, blocky-block piano chords playing. It’s way spacier than all of that. The spacey-ness of it led me into the science world, and I was reading this book about the physics of time [Carlo Rovelli’s The Order of Time], so I’d say it became a song about the physics of time and displacement. That’s one of those totally written to a cue, because it’s a fairly abstract piece of music. It’s been very difficult for me to learn, because it’s really not normal. But I think I’ve finally got it.”
