The question is asked, and not directly answered, but spirit of finding the answer is resurrected after going through station to station, and more than ever relevant. The past is remembered still, but only as device to traverse to a different future.
Don't call it a comeback? Well sure.
The song that pushed me to my creative limits at times, and then suddenly it all worked and fell into place. It goes without saying that this is THE song on this release, and with its long documented refuge between potential releases and tracklists, it was divine will that it would land here.
I didn't care for the hand's
culpable caress that youth demands
I can see the debt in your eyes
that you slept on
cause you can only ask so much
about a job, about a class,
about things absolutely unnecessary to ask...
I've been nothing but open with you
now I wonder if I'm too open for my own good
this death march has allowed me to see
madness disguised as anemic treaties
cause it's so sequentially un-required of me
a status quo to ignite some memory; to retain allure
these are your last minutes before the bloody surf
yeah, the biggest crime was that never you pulled it off
oh, they're normal people that love gossiping
oh, they're business people trying to be interesting
oh, they're ugly people sharing nasty feelings
OH, WHAT THE HELL AM I THEN?
surrounded by directionless maps
it's not as easy as writing in "ambition"
to fill in their blanks
your favorite chatterbox
hasn't faltered for very long
to allow him to sell you, in depreciating value,
the cheapest truth that we can afford
so let the intricate smiles begin
only fatal till the last minutes of this
acrimonious overture's crescendo
still the same old drunk cadet
the very same your fresh friends don't know of yet
my god, life can be so much longer than you expect
but don't forget the minor detail
terms and conditions may apply
(a crack on the head is just what you'll get...)
