melody and samples from "heptapod b" by johann johannsson from the score for arrival


Wham! Bam! Aliens crash land!
Just floatin’ on our turf, and we all like “Welcome to Earth!”
But ain’t no Men In Black to put us at ease
So the military’s goin’ for Professor Louise

And a physicist: here’s the gist for those two
Language-wise, they got a lotta splainin’ to do! (Lucy!)
Just like Lucy, cause you see, our contact is flawed
We don’t know how to talk to no heptapod

Louise sees that their speech is in parentheses
And she pleads to put the soldiers at ease
The general proceeds to booby trap the room
And as the aliens talk it all goes kaboom!

When things mellow, she meets with Costello
He tells her telepathically that Abbott isn’t well, yo
She’s having visions, and he says that they’re vital
They might just be the reason for their sudden arrival

Crash landed, right on the planet
Are they here to help, are they here to attack?
We don't know what to do except to watch our backs!

Trying to communicate
We do the best, for what it's worth
But we still gotta work to protect the Earth

Louise’s brain becomes an almanac
While the whole damn world is prepared to fight back
And to stop an attack, she calls a Chinese dude
Now this is the part where I got confused

His wife is dead, but she knows her last words?
Why’d they see the aliens and bring them a bird?
She has a second kid, Jeremy Renner is horny?
(Naw Prince, that’s her first kid, and Renner is corny

With his) "wanna make a baby?” Oh, so that was the twist
Ain’t a movie worse to fall asleep in than this
It should’ve been exciting, with some blood and bones
And guns, and more fun, and maybe Tommy Lee Jones

He could play a guy that maybe gives me a job
And we keep the world safe from an alien mob
Man, that could be a franchise worth two reprisals
yadda yadda yadda something something

Crash landed, right on the planet
Are they here to help, are they here to attack?
(I was in a movie called Men In Black!)

Trying to communicate
Louise sees the future, but we don't know how
(Three Men In Black films, in stores now!)
