about

The narrator emerges from a protective shelter, a year and a half after the apocalypse.

lyrics

The first time I've stepped out since they've all gone
The neighbors' dried-up pool and long-dead lawn
They all talked of hope, but most of them found enough rope
I'm searching the streets for survivors

The radiation seems to have gone down
Inverted silhouettes adorn the town
Fifteen months alone, tiny underground room to call home
In hindsight I can't see the purpose

It's time to go to sleep in my old place
I think it's her but can't make out her face
I lie down on my bed, the pills roll a fog through my head
I'll see you in just a few moments
