Appearances

Overview

The track was first revealed on September 25, 2021 via Rivers Cuomo's personal website.[1] The song is the de facto "single" for SZNZ: Autumn.[2] On April 21, 2022, a short clip of the song was heard on Cuomo's TikTok account.[3] On September 16, a short snippet of the song was given as the reward for solving that day's puzzle on Cuomo's web game, Weezle.

Lyrics

I'm sending out a signal
Waiting on a callback from you
Did I hear an echo
Or am I living in déjà vu?
Corrosion in the wires
Makes it hard for me to understand
Part of me is curious
And part of me is too afraid to ask

You are the only one I ever really loved
What happens after you?
What happens after you?

We zoom into the future
And there's no way to turn back the clock
I've been dependent on you
And now I'm all alone on this rock
Life is unfamiliar
Everything is written down in code
All I have is a memory
All I have is a memory (of a memory)

You are the only one I ever really loved
What happens after you?
What happens after you?

Will I go crazy, sadistic
Swingin' 'round a big stick?
Will I grow kinder when I see how fragile life is?
My mind spins
What happens after
What happens after you?
What happens after you?

You are the only one I ever really loved
What happens after you?
What happens after you?

Will I go crazy, sadistic
Swingin' 'round a big stick?
Will I grow kinder when I see how fragile life is?
My mind spins
What happens after

What happens after you?
