Lyrics:

[S]ynchronize

I’m still wondering
Where to go now
We have seen the highest peak but there was
Nothing there no truth and how
I’m wandering
Through all these places
Lands of Little Cubes and Tea
Of Wind and Shade, these null spaces

I’ve stared at the stars, how they shine verdant dreams
I’ve looked through the void, seen it crack at the seams
I fought every challenge, these devils and gods
They won’t know what hit them

[S]ynchronize, with every breath resounding
[S]ynchronize, we’ll see the light astounding
[S]ynchronize, time keeps our heartbeat pounding
[S]ynchronize, now witness space surrounding

I’m still wandering
In this Cascade
See this universe we made, will you remem8er me?
These games we played?
Our plundering
Boonbucks and grist, Prospit and Derse
In the end we gave them
Everything, our final verse

I’ve sang with the muses, dead timelines denied
I’ve hunted the wolf and seen planets Collide
I’ve witnessed the end of these gods and their tiers
And no one could save them

[S]ynchronize, see this new life we’re founding
[S]ynchronize, now with the void confounding
[S]ynchronize, it’s all our hearts still sounding
[S]ynchronize, infinite hope abounding

Showtime!

[S]ynchronize, with every breath resounding
[S]ynchronize, we’ll see the light astounding
[S]ynchronize, time keeps our heartbeat pounding
[S]ynchronize, now witness space surrounding
[S]ynchronize, with every breath resounding
[S]ynchronize, we’ll see the light astounding
[S]ynchronize, time keeps our heartbeat pounding
[S]ynchronize, now witness space surrounding

This will be the end
Come with me and we’ll Ascend
Solving puzzles universal
In our Sburban Reversal
All these Ruins we Explore
Could it be there’s something more?
Pester me, I’m not alone
I’m just stuck inside my home

Artist commentary:

heir-of-puns:

So [S]ynchronize is just…really really good and it makes me feel a lot of things. Yeah it’s vocaloid and that’s funny but god DAMN it gives me chills every time I listen to it. I’ve been working on this cover for maybe two and a half years now? Since the Before Times definitely. It has gone through a lot of tweaks but I’m pretty proud of it overall. HUGE thanks to Ucklin for final mastering and vocals, and to CJ for the harmonies! Pronunciation of the title is up for ~interpretation~ I guess. I wanted it to be a tribute to the original title, and also just seeing the [S] in front of the next arrow always gave me a rush of adrenaline since something amazing was probably about to go down. So you click on that arrow with anticipation and launch yourself into the experience and then freak out about it on the internet afterward. Here I go getting emotional about homestuck again, wild.

Ucklin:

I wanted to put a lot of emotion and expressivity into the vocals even if that made them a bit weird! Puns was really cool and waited a long time for me to finally record them while stuff was going on in my life. I’m glad I got to work with him!

Circlejourney:

You can just hear the love and effort that went into the track, it brings the nostalgia rushing back so I tried to create an art piece that would do that justice.
