Roswell was almost a forgotten "incident", then revived by ufologists in the 70s. Since then, it has only provided more and more insight into the "anomalies" and their technology, as well as the workings of governments in response to these anomalies. The music is all over the place, with chiptune textures, filtered instruments and even a hip-hop acid line to close it out.
Something crashed outside of the desert in Roswell, New Mexico. There were a lot of people who said that there was a god-damned meteor or something that fell to a ranch just north of Roswell. The first people there to see it were a team of archaeologists. They were walking up and down a place called The North Road. And they saw this craft, and its wreckage, and its remains. There were bodies--one in, two outside; one struggling to breath. Some of the debris they picked up was weird stuff. Super tenacity, tin foil that you could fold into the cusp of your hand and let go, and it would just bounce out like a sheet... no wrinkles, no nothing. Glass pipes that reflected light of all different colors. Strange, strange, strange, strange things... very, very, very weird, weird things. Roswell Air Force Base, they said: "Yeah, we got a flying saucer." And then, the next day... the next day they printed a retraction and said: "No, it was a weather balloon." Okay, well, that's fine... show us the weather balloon... and they showed us the weather balloon. You know the picture of the dude standing over the weather balloon holding the piece of paper? Well, recently they did a computer enhancement of the piece of paper that he was holding, and here's what it says on that piece of paper: "AS THE [...] 4 HRS THE VICTIMS OF THE [...] YOU FORWARDED TO THE [...] AT FORT WORTH, TEX. [...] THE "CRASH" "STORY" [...] FOR 0984 ACKNOWLEDGES [...] EMERGENCY POWERS ARE NEEDED SITE TWO SW MAGDALENA, NMEX [...] SAFE TALK [...] FOR MEANING OF STORY AND MISSION [...] WEATHER BALLOONS SENT ON THE [...] AND LAND [...] ROVER CREWS[...] TEMPLE" (Ron Regehr and James Bond Johnson, 1998)
