Lyrics:

This is not the answer we were looking for
So unprepared for the treachery of life
We did the best we could, but the best is not what's right for us, turns out

It spiraled down so quickly
Out of our control
Locked in the bad ending of a cruel game
That will end at the heat death of the universe
It all comes crashing down
Our smiles and optimism gone

It took its toll
Our youth, our families, distant friends and destinies
When have we lost our way?

I've seen the end
The collapse and the mayhem, I will bring you back my friends
Leave my past behind and try again

A butterfly landing, planets come crashing down
A note of desolation, a role to lead, a void to fill again
Inessential, irrelevant

(To us, you're a true savior, and in every sense of the word.)

I won't go back, better an endless cycle than a deadlock of despair
I will miss you my friends
Change our fate, I will take the arms and rebase our mistakes
Failures and death, I won't let it end like this

It took its toll
Our youth, our families, thank you for the memories
When have we lost our way?

I've seen the end
The collapse and the mayhem, I will bring you back my friends
Leave my past behind and try again

The reunion was short, but it's just a goodbye
I'll change our fate and see you back in time

Artist commentary:

Tee-vee:

A song about the events post-GAME OVER, for the most part. I wasn't feeling too adventurous these days so I stayed with my default proggy-sounding-but-not-actually-that-complex rock style and the ideas came fairly easily. I’ve been listening a lot to Starrysky’s latest album recently so I’d say inspiration came mostly from that (hence the title lol), as well as acts like Periphery or Protest The Hero or Moron Police which are usual inspirations for me I guess. Also vocal production is still relatively new for me lol
