Pendulum – The Island Pt 1 (Dawn) lyrics

You arrive
In the rising sun
The hidden passenger
That I've been taking
Close your eyes
Let's forget again
As you drag me down
I will take you in

What are you waiting for?
Just surrender here tonight
What are you waiting for?
As we go towards the light

When everything is said and done
Still looking for answers if only one
Turn my back the urge has gone
Left with no reason we come undone

I am caught
In your slow release
Seems like your traveller's
Eager to move me
My reflection
Will slowly fade
To another time
Until my head escapes

What are you waiting for?
Just surrender here tonight
What are you waiting for?
As we go towards the light

When everything is said and done
So looking for answers if only one
Turn my back the urge has gone
Left with no reason we come undone

    I think the song is about discovering a part of yourself that you never knew ("the hidden passenger i've been taking"), learning to accept it ("just surrender here tonight... As we go towards the light"), questioning how you've come to be this person ("still looking for answers if only one"), and eventually leaving the question unanswered ("turn my back the urge has gone, left with no reason, we come undone).

    The song is actually quite nihilistic in a way- in the chorus it speaks about how when your life draws to a close you're still searching for answers and the narrator denounces this ("the urge has gone") and chooses a meaningless existence ("left with no reason, we come undone"). It is up to the listener to determine whether this song will make them feel this sentiment or to cause them to question it. Not sure what the verses mean, but the chorus and prechorus are quite sraightforward.
