Dispatch

We’re standing on a ledge
We’re facing an abyss
Frozen solid, petrified
The stakes are fathomless
This tension, it is toxic
I dare not even speak
Our hopes and dreams are on the line
The future’s looking bleak
Dispatching doves in earnest
In hope to find dry land
Waiting for a sign
That there are better times at hand
Unstable and reactive
There’s nothing left to say
But to avoid ignition
To survive another day

I’m holding on
But for how long, until we’re falling?
I’m holding on
But for how long, until there’s nothing?
Before there’s nothing

This heart is suffocating
I barely feel it’s beat
These nerves are tied in knots
And I’m struggling hard to breathe
You say that I’m depressed
And that’s where our problems lie
Yet you’re the one who’s screaming
Crying, hating all the time
Constantly erratic
You’re overwhelming me
One wrong word or action
And we are history
So show me a solution
If there is one at all
I hold on cause I love you
I still love you in free fall

I’m holding on
But for how long, until we’re falling?
I’m holding on
But for how long, until there’s nothing?
I’m holding on, until it’s gone
But for how long, until we’re falling?
I’m holding on, until it’s gone
But for how long, until there’s nothing

I’m holding on
But for how long, until we’re falling?
I’m holding on
But for how long, until there’s nothing?
I’m holding on, until it’s gone
But for how long, until we’re falling?
I’m holding on, until it’s gone
But for how long, until there’s nothing

Song Notes

In a track by track breakdown of Kablammo! with culturecollide.com, the band had the following to say about the track:

Tim: “Dispatch” is about hardships in a relationship. When you really love someone but you’re going through tough times trying to figure it out. It also develops as quite a pop song

Mark: It starts off with almost a disco beat to it and then gets all rock.

TIM: Some of it reminds me almost of Europe. There’s some sort of pop metal influence in there as well. It’s been getting a really great response from people as well. So I think it’s going to be killer.
