The Villagers‘ debut album was a promise that now seems to be fulfilled in their second album {Awayland}. They just released this incredible song and music video. Check it out:

Nothing Arrived

Music Video

Lyrics

Savannah 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 anew
From here on in it’s 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 loser’s 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…
(And nothing arrived)
I guess I was busy…

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
Nothing arrived
