Michael Garfield takes a break on tour with journalist/filmmaker Charles Shaw.

ABOUT THE SONG:
"When The Orbit Curtain Falls" balladizes the day humankind meets extraterrestrial intelligence on a global level -- an apocalyptic event that would make the fall of the Berlin Wall seem insignificant by comparison.

LYRICS:
West of town, past the wall from the Civil War
there's a lake that was made by the Army Corps
where on especially clear nights
the sky above swims with lights

I point them out - they pass the test
The world is bigger than we guessed
and when the orbit curtain falls
the globe will glow with urgent calls
and we are waiting for it all to drop

There are some things that we refuse to even see
So much of life is kept from view by obsolete machinery
and even when we try, some things are hidden to the eye
but tonight

I point them out - they pass the test
The world is bigger than we guessed
and when the orbit curtain falls
the globe will glow with urgent calls
and we are waiting for it all
we are praying for it all to drop
