lyrics

Is it me, or does the present always seem unfair?
The math of the past to the aftermath that just never adds up
Giving up on the sum of yourself you were willing to share
Reflection just means that the scales get reversed and recollection is corrupt.
Shut up
You’re so fucking lucky
You don’t win or lose
It’s just old news
But I’m old now too

And that test of exposure to the shit of yourself, didn’t happen to stick,
Now you’re stuck with a stranger who you’ve put in danger of dissolution towards it.
So, now you’re lonely but with an audience who doesn’t want to clap at all
For fear of suggesting some compassion or god forbid an encore
You don’t win or lose
It’s just old news
But I’m old now too

So, genuine consideration was never part of the fun?
Enduring something special was something that I’d never done
And I never got to thank her
For the anger
That’s begun
And ended
With myself
I’m always by myself
And that wealth of contentment
I spent on my resentment
Towards nothing at all
Except that blot of red upon the wall

Where I bang my head

Commitment to a memory is a fool’s last hope
If I wasn’t so lazy, I’d take that energy and work on my next joke
And anybody who could take it, we’d all laugh together
At the hypocrisy of what was meant to be just meant waiting out forever

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.
