"A Labor More Restful" as written by and David Longstreth....
You are finally convinced
That you inhabit
The same banal world as everyone
Everyone has found it too
Everyone has resigned themselves
To it

And the only mystery
Is in what you couldn't decide
Or remember clearly
The only mystery
Is in what you couldn't decide or remember
Decide or remember
I hope you've stopped looking
In order to put yourself
To some real purpose

Or have you simply found
A labour more restful
Than big hearted yearning
And knowing that you're incomplete

And the only mystery
Is in what you couldn't decide
Or remember clearly

The only mystery is in what you couldn't decide
Or remember
Decide
Or remember

    General CommentSurprised no one has wanted to give their piece on this masterpiece.

    The whole moral of it all may be summed up in the first verse but in the second it gets more in depth. There's the sense of an overworked population, of complacent people who have stopped looking and therefore created all of the banality in the world. There are constructs of 'uniqueness' but they are just that- ideas, something created by our minds to fit into this world that was banal to begin with when we were born. At the same time there's the sense of this being directed at someone almost. Like a fellow day dreaming friend who would soul search with Dave. In that sense it almost sounds like a cautionary tale to the friend, warning that when you stop looking, when you become ignorant to what you'd rather not be part of you can find yourself blindly serving it.
