Dear Henry, Peter, Andrew, Richard, Matthew, Benjamin,
As members and past members of this ignominious team
I write to you to apologise for the mess we're in
This holding pattern of defeat on defeat on defeat

And though I've done my best it feels like,

And we fought the good fight, every single night
And luck well we had none
Don't know what I could have done
I just think the time has come

To step aside
To leave

So this will be the last time that I write to you or slur
"Glory to the team and to all those who sail in her"
Remember all the floodlit nights and pyrrhic victories
Remember all the lives we changed, or thought we changed at least

But like Keanu Reeves says:
"Pain heals,
Chicks dig scars,
Glory lasts forever."

Pain heals,
Girls like scars,
Glory lasts forever.

Please accept
my reluctant
though necessary


from Hope Fading Nightly, released September 18, 2015
