"The Terror" as written by and Michael Ivins Wayne Coyne....
However long they love you
We are all standing alone
The terror’s in our heads
They don't control the controls

I turn to face the sun
We are still standing alone
At last we'll stand by the terror
It helps us take the controls

We’ll save the last sunshine
The way I long to go
We’ll save the love, you’ll still love
We’re searching through the dark

We’ll save the last sunshine
The way I long to go
We’ll save the love, you’ll still love
We’re searching through the dark

We’ve all tried to come through
We’ve always tried to come through
We all stretched to come to this

    Song MeaningThis is a song that, like much of the album it's on, revolves around existential dread, fear of death, and the feelings of intense isolation these ideas usually foster. Loneliness and death are inescapable, and the only way to keep going is to find kinship in these fears and the limitations shared by all peoples. It ends, however, by suggesting that even that solace is fleeting and does little to change the outcome.
