For a chorus, maybe something along the lines of:

Earth will never be the same
(echoing your final line).

Don't know if that can fit against Sketch's music or not though!.

Given that the result of the encounter isn't known until the final verse, the chorus should be somewhat vague about the outcome whilst still being compatible.


I had the same feeling about giving up the ending before the end. It's The End Of The World As We Know It is a hit by R.E.M. so I would probably stay away from that exact wording.

I wrote this for Sketch, so I will be flexible as to what he wants.

I did have a couple ideas today.

Here are 2 potential chorus ideas:

(1)
First Encounter
Fear and wonder
Come together
Tear asunder

(2)
First Encounter
From outer Space
Friend or foe
To the human race

I know you wanted 5 verses and 5 choruses, so adding either in after each verse will be too many. I thought it might make sense to add the chorus after V2, V4 and V6, then repeat it once more at the end to make 10. Another possible option could be to use this between each verse except 5 and then end with V6. Just putting some ideas on the plate.
