lyrics

Split second decision. How do I traverse this? How does one avoid an asteroid field, when you’re already in it? And why are you still in my head? Why!?
Ducking low or aiming high
Tensing rising in the blink of an eye
Evasive maneuvers till I’m in the clear
All this trouble to find a sphere

(Chorus)
It falls apart here at the seams
Caught all alone among the streams
Dodging debris while on the run
I’m here all alone beside my dreams
fighting hard to restore the beams
but all I do is surely come undone

Fading out among the stars
Is that door now slightly cracked ajar
Making moves till I cannot fail
yet still I’m caught beyond the pale
(Chorus)
Terrified, I hit the switch
and hope the systems here won’t glitch
Caught in Bedlam on a wire
Nowhere to move out of the mire

Yet still your eyes they light the way
Like all the stars have gone astray
Heart of stone, now etched from ember
I won’t forget, I will remember

I still don’t get it, and probably never will. Why are you here? Just why? In this field of rock and ice, where gravity is surely not a friend and not the ruthless killer we take it to be, all I can do is avoid collision or perish. All I ever wanted, is now threatened by the reality of the vacuum around me, yielding secrets like some magician on an empty stage in front of an impatient and hungry crowd unable to appreciate the trick being performed. And yet, all that I ever wanted, all that ever mattered, was the sight of you. I just want you, despite knowing I don’t deserve you. But I can’t quit now. I can’t…

about

My Arrival Netherlands

My Arrival began life when three souls wandered into a single room with the intention to write music from a different perspective than they had done so before: shorter and accessible songs, without losing any of their intended intensity and progressive roots. The result of this collaboration is their upcoming album entitled “Satur9 & Indigo”. ... more
