A ballad about our place in the Universe, and the search to find meaning.
Written over two days, this is one of four songs recorded as a group between March - July 2015. The main instrument is a Yamaha keyboard, with acoustic guitar and Hofner 500/1 bass.
In the end
When the darkness descends
What will become of me?
Will I go
To above or below
Or will there be nothing to see?
There are raging debates, a Paradise awaits
Ready for those who pray
But I can’t be sure, without something more
It’s just what people say
How do you know
That you know what you know
Is not just a tale you were told?
What if you find
That it’s all in the mind
No Paradise to behold?
But the atoms of you, were once forged anew
As traces of stars now gone
And now it is found, in you they abound
Your atoms go on and on
What if we are
Made of nothing so far
And life is just a dream passing by?
Why should we care
If we’re nothing but air
What happens when we die?
But while we have power, we should live every hour
And help one another when we can
The future may find, what we’ve left behind
Our starlight shining once again
