Commentary

Jack’s comments from Bandcamp:

This one re-uses the lyric from Things To Come (from the CD, Let’s Fall In Love). It’s an EPIC featuring multiple distorted guitars, horns, strings, ups and downs, ins and outs – it’s a journey, man!

 

Lyrics

When you wake, it’s barely dawn
Oh what a beautiful morning it could be
Scratch yourself and spring to life
Try not to stir the trouble and strife
Spin the wheel and learn your fate
Spin the wheel, it’s not too late

Could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and be strong enough to run

Step by step, he slowly turns
One by one he eyes them each in turn
And as lightning fills the room
One by one, they all begin to swoon
Look at my creation
The monster looms above your head

Could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and be strong enough to run
First one foot and then the other
Look at him, sisters
Look at him, brother

And as the curtain slowly falls
And he rides into the sunset, a final word
Be yourself, don’t be afraid
Don’t look back, don’t look down
Be yourself, don’t be afraid
Don’t look back

Could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and be strong enough to run
Seasons come and seasons go
What we reap, we shall sow
Could be a sign of things to come
Open your eyes and be strong enough to run
Brush it aside, it’s only dust
Nothing is broken, you’ll just have to trust yourself
