about

Explanation:
Who knows what's true? I should be more concrete in my opinions by now. Right? Shouldn't I?

Oh, and my esophagus is scarred from Crohn's disease so it's a pretty good metaphor.

Inspired by a conversation between Davos Seaworth and Lady Milesandre from the book A Clash of Kings

lyrics

Lyrics:
Ambition is a dirty word
I learned that from some book
& that anise cures a stomach ache
Who knows if it's true?
Been around long enough now
That the fruit is definitely ripe
I should be able to pick a good one
Is it bitter? Does it taste wrong?
Tastes like apprehension
Maybe it's just over my head

Sophisticated pallet
But a raw & scarred esophagus

Leaned from a low vantage point
Perspective from the wrong side of town
Empty-pocket confidence
But trying hard
Eyes still pointed down
Hard-earned wisdoms
Look more like character flaws

Flaws & short sightedness
Back & forth between
Compassion & stubbornness
Empathy & judgment

Small grey man
mixed parts
good & bad
what about you?
