This is the start of a revolution hymn
(And it starts just like the rest – insecure and simple)
I'm letting these downer thoughts out of my head
(I'm letting teenage fears disappear like pimples)

I took the college route
I waged the safest bet
Nothing to show for it but debt, regret, and settlement
(And still the worst years of my life keep dragging on)

But I'm not quite giving up
'cause I'm not done giving in
I won't just settle for a lifetime filled with so much shit
(And so this verse is my version of moving on)

So this is the start of a revolution hymn
(Still just like the rest – stumbling through pitfalls)
I'm letting my arteries sanguinely drip
(I'm winding up my reel, I'm casting out my devils)

And for the first time in my 19 years
(I'm letting go of all these fears)
This is a start,
And it starts with this.


from Quiet As It's Kept, released February 12, 2012
