The show contains one of my favorite lines of the record. It’s in the bridge, “when the end is near will you hold me dear till the moment I turn blue, when the light escapes right out my face I hope my last words mention you, I’ve heard the final days of this slow parade could be the deepest shades of blue, and I think the end will be the most beautiful show of all.” I think that cuts to the heart of this record and gets to the heart of who I am. I’m willing to find joy in the suffering and pain that this world can bring because I believe in the greater good of those around me and that in the end there is hope and beauty. And I hope with all I have that the end is truly the beginning.



Well time passes slow, when your mind feels young but your bodies old
still time marches on, though the hearts of man, are weak and worn

You've known me through it all
Prevailed through most improbable odds
Seen the depths and the peaks of love
Been right here all along, through it all

You've been abused, you walk through life with the guilt of the accused
I've worn my scars, been cut by the knife and burnt by the fire


When the end is near, would you hold me dear until the moment I turn blue
If the light escapes right out my face, I hope my last words mention you
Heard the final days, of this slow parade, are the deepest shades of blue

But I think the end will be
I think the end will be
I think the end will be
The most beautiful show of all.
