lyrics

So, how do I navigate losing track?
Now I know that
Surrender’s the key,
It’s the plan of attack
The irony’s not lost on me.

Where do I stand and when do I lean back?
From collating random facts
To assemble a wall, full of brilliant cracks
The irony’s not lost on me!

in the red
in the black
Two steps ahead
Run on the spot then
Two steps back

A dance
A race
The paper chase
My chance
To face the music
To capitulate

You see,
The paper trail is tangible and when it cuts, it cuts deep
So it feels like something at least
The context of the text is too ephemeral and the ink
It tends to bleed

I’ve never felt good, but this is the best that I’ve felt
Relenting does not mean retreat
No need to keep archiving the cards I’ve been dealt
Documenting each defeat
Seemed alive
Running in circles
I was madly in love with the thought that I was not
And so surprised that I am not surprised when
Running in circles
Eventually
I’ve lapped myself

A dance
A race
The paper chase
My chance
To face the music
To capitulate

Burn all my deeds. Acceptance is the fuel
I can finally respire
Flames are so peaceful and the warmth is so cool
Let’s dance around the fire

in the red
in the black
Two steps ahead
Run on the spot then
Two steps back

Running in circles
I’ve lapped myself
Doubled backed to realize
It was somebody else

A dance
A race
The paper chase
My chance
To face the music
and capitulate
Capitulate
Capitulate
Capitulate

about

Revered Vancouver, British Columbia

"Revered" is composer/front-man, Emmett Hall's musical experiment into pseudo-new wave/prog-rock cathartic nonsense.
Best described as an entertaining self-cleansing though acerbic revelry and bathos.
Much of which is in collaboration with producer, Pietro Sammarco.
