about

The Void Becomes You features Patrick Smith and Chris Bruder navigating the grieving process: denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance. Imagine being suddenly let loose in outer space, running out of oxygen, and suddenly having to come to terms with your demise - regardless of the state of affairs you left behind.

lyrics

Why, me, why now?

Underneath the tides
Breathing in the light
The void becomes you
The void welcomes you
Pay up all you owe
Buy your ticket home
And leave with what you sow
The void becomes you

Wrong place, wrong time
Why me now, why?

It chases all the time
Leaves no one behind
The void becomes you
The void welcomes you
Regardless of your life
You must return to night
Where all your love resides
The void becomes you

So close, so far
So close, so far
Wrong place, wrong time
Why me now, why?

When all the stars align
To turn you into light
The void becomes you
The void welcomes you
And somewhere in the space
They won't forget your face
Or anything you do
The void becomes you
The void becomes you
Becomes you
Becomes you
