Nothing Arrived

Album: (Awayland) (2013)
  • Savanna scatters and the seabird sings
    So why should we fear what travel brings?
    What were we hoping to get out of this?
    Some kind of momentary bliss?

    I waited for something, and something died
    So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived
    It's our dearest ally, it's our closest friend
    It's our darkest blackout, it's our final end
    My dear sweet nothing, let's start a new
    From here all in is just me and you

    I waited for something and something died
    So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived
    Well I guess it's over, I guess it's begun
    It's a losers' table, but we've already won
    It's a funny battle, it's a constant game
    I guess I was busy when nothing came

    I guess I was busy (when nothing arrived)
    I guess I was busy (when nothing arrived)
    I guess I was busy (when nothing arrived)
    I guess I was busy (when nothing arrived)

    I waited for something and something died
    So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived
    I waited for something and something died
    So I waited for nothing, and nothing arrived Writer/s: Conor O'Brien
