Riff: Ray LaMontagne – “No Answer Arrives”

May 21, 2018

Where is the love?/Where is the love I used to feel?/Hey hey hey, Where is the love?/Where is the love that I used to feel?

from No Answer Arrives lyrics by Ray LaMontagne

His anger towards indifference reaches its apex. He’s demanding accountability and wondering when the heroes will arrive. There is an absence of light and with darkness running rampant he is breaking apart. He has so many question, but the lack of answers is sending him into a tizzy. His anguish is getting the best of him, but by airing his grievances he’s hoping that progress will be made.
