'Twiddle My Thumb' is the third track from the album, 'But What If I'm Right?' by Revered
Out November 4th/2015


I know

Every day I know
Everything will go
The length I’m willing to admit
I know

I would gladly show
All the things I doubt
I wouldn’t give the benefit
That kills my own will bit by bit

How to pay your dues
How to say you’re through
With all the do’s you gotta do
I know

It’s a choice I choose
Deliberately confuse my views
For what I need is true
To wade my own way through these blues

I got the blues

If I’m the one who takes the blame
I've got to find the glory
In the Shame

Oh so much malaise
Blending all the days
Into a lather of ennui
I know

The bar is never raised
Redundancy is praised
If fooled to shine in mockery
The glow reflecting back on me

Shining so brightly

If I’m the one who takes the blame
I've got to find the glory
In the Shame

I don’t know how else to put it
That I don’t want to care
I don’t see any purpose
In indulging that dare

Hedge my bets
As I profess
The second guess
Is always best

It’s a constant test
Enduring all the jests
To read the words upon my crest
Remind myself I'm bored to death

Fake it ‘til I break it
Until the earth shakes it
From my need to make it
Count for something
I need destruction
A catastrophe
To release me
From my accountability

I take the blame
Got to find the glory
In the Shame

All for show
No Reward
I don’t know
Why I’m bored

Twiddle my thumb

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.
