lyrics

Have you heard the news of our troubles and our blues
and all of the bullshit on TV
Without any excuse they just sit and refuse
to try and stand, no, they'd rather flee
Always right on cue with nothing left overdue
but leaving it to you and me
So here I am today, like us all stuck in the fray
But I won't become another absentee

(Chorus)
Out there in the numbness of the void
lies a pale white dot, my saving grace
and yet here I am, the one that you avoid
while I'm being erased, I'm being erased
Without you I'm lost but what's worst is the cost
of lying down and quitting on us all
So instead I'm here today, like us all stuck in the fray
Trying to avoid and hit the wall
(Chorus)

(Bridge)
This is insane. Absolutely batshit insane crazy. I mean, people are laying down their lives in suicide pacts because they can’t see a way out of this darkness and here I am, following up on a lead. Probably a dead end one too, just like this world of ours… Oh c’mon you piece of crap, stop taking your time and give me what I need!
What the? What the hell?! No... What is that? That’s not even possible! This doesn’t sound like meteors hitting chunks of ice in Saturn’s rings. Not possible, I’m picking this up from way beyond even.
You’ve got to be fucking kidding me. Kuiper cliff… of all the places, that can’t be correct. Let’s run diagnostics again.
This is insane. Kuiper cliff… No way…
I need more data before I can commit this to the board.
Insane. But then again, a little hope goes a long way…

( Chorus)
Right now, with the earth almost destroyed
We all feel the heat as we'll be displaced
And out there in the numbness of the void
lies a pale white dot, my saving grace
Yet here I am, slowly being erased

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
