lyrics

Revolve a year around it
Awaiting the next
But the days, they don’t get counted
So the year’s endless
And I’m too cold to question why

I’m never under pressure
That forces grace
Clumsy in my endeavors
But I keep pace
As the seasons breed and birth and die

Can’t place it, something is wrong here
I don’t feel like I’m
Capable of anything but to
Shiver in the brightness of a cold cheap sun

The milestones are crumbling
As the frost creeps in
Can’t see the ones encroaching
The light’s blinding
Though it’s cheap, it’s satisfying

Why would I fear the future?
If that sun still shines
What’s ahead can’t come any sooner
But I take my time
Delaying all that’s gratifying

Can’t place it, something is wrong here
Don’t feel like I’m
Capable of anything but to
Shiver in the brightness of a cold cheap sun

Cold cheap sun

No rituals
No rites of passage
Habitual denial
The only custom salvaged
And the odor of the smolder
As the sun grows us older than we’ve ever died before
Generates a mist of a truth dismissed
For a bargain never bargained for

And I just don’t feel that different,
Since the world has claimed it’s changed
My complacence formed the instant
I traded in my rage

And I just don’t feel that different,
Since my emotions disengaged
My entitlement’s persistence
Left my instincts so estranged

Can’t place it, something is wrong here
Don’t feel like I’m
Capable of anything but to
Shiver in the brightness of a cold cheap sun
On behalf of no one

Cold cheap sun

The sun demands a man
The currency of time
He can withstand
While choosing to ignore
His own blood upon his hands
Getting what he paid for

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.
