Martin Garrix released an entire album’s worth of material in 2018, so we understand that his side project AREA21 only put out one track last year. But we’re happy to see the duo with Maejor revived in 2019 for a new track, “HELP.”


“HELP” is a bit more subdued than some of the past material from AREA21, putting more emphasis on the hip hop and downtempo production. The lyrics are also a bit more poignant and pointed than some of their previous tracks, tackling issues like human superficiality, materialism, and religious extremism.

The lyrics are sung from the perspective of the AREA21 aliens approaching Earth and seeing the strife and conflict, and basically saying, “You know what, maybe we’ll come back another time.”

Check out “HELP” from AREA21 below.

AREA21 – HELP [Lyrics]

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit
So many times we tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Hoping for the day when you overcome your hatred (Yeah)

[Chorus]
We came to your planet, but we had to leave
Saw too many things we didn’t want to see
When you’re all together, you look at your screens
What’s your problem? How can you be so naive?
People killing others ’cause of their beliefs (Wow, wow)

[Verse 1]
We tried coming down, but we saw no light (Saw no light)
We like species who represent good vibes (That’s what we like)
We fly over Earth and we say goodbye (Doei, doei!)
In time, we hope you recognise what’s right
Waiting, patient, til’ the time is right for us to save it
Before you fade away

[Pre-Chorus]
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit
So many times we tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Hoping for the day when you overcome your hatred (Fuck, yeah)

[Chorus]
We came to your planet, but we had to leave
Saw too many things we didn’t want to see
When you’re all together, you look at your screens
What’s your problem? How can you be so naive?
People killing others ’cause of their beliefs (How?)

[Verse 2]
We see people fighting, aye
We see rockets flying, aye
We see babies crying, aye
Politicians lying, woah
Where is the unity? You’re so divided, woah
Where is the love? We can’t seem to find it

[Bridge]
We tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves
We tried to help, tried to save you from yourselves

[Outro]
Switch
Maybe one day we’ll come say “Hi”
But right now is not the right time
We’ll be on our spaceship flying different places
Waiting for the day when you done with all that fake shit
