And I have dozens of promises
Fragrant spots in the monitors
And I can keep my composure most times

And I'm not falling apart at the priceless
Points of the problems and crumble
Only when prompted to now

I'm breathing in the longest spring of my life

Tempted when I get tempted to lie
I'm a responsible neophyte
I like a journey all right
And everyone gets what they want
Everyone gets what they want all the time
Everyone gets what they want
Even me
Even me
Even me

    General CommentI think this is about entering a new stage in one's life, possibly spiritually. A neophyte is a novice or beginner, and in the Christian faith the term refers to a new convert. I'm not sure if it was intentional or not but one of the acoustic guitars is playing the leitmotif from Edvard Grieg's Morning Mood, a theme often utilized in film and television when a character is waking up. There's also the mention of spring, the season in which life begins anew. I get the feeling the singer had been going through a rough period before but now he has a fresh, albeit stoic, outlook on life, This song has some of the most bittersweet music I've heard, particularly in the coda. I like the Nude Records version because that section lasts longer and the electric piano seems to have a little more grit.
