Borrowing titles of existing songs that begin with this very phrase, Here Comes couples the vibrant traffic of the project's site with the incessant and repetitive occurences of these words. Detailed and accurate track length information is provided for each title on the panels, pointing to the time one could potentially invest in the vast repertoire of music that accompanies these hopeful and perhaps overly optimistic titles. The project professes for the sad banality of expectation, while concretizing the fervor of the platform through lyrical content.
