old ghosts i had gone searching for and
old ghosts i have inadvertently found.
although this current position's nice,
no prince is soon due to be crowned.
old memories have been dug up and
old memories have been recounted.
although the reins've been put in my hands,
no faithful steed has been mounted.
old voices had come a-calling and
old voices have stirred up the past.
although i received what i wanted,
no happiness ensued at last.
old values i had once stood by and
old values i'll continue to bide.
although i am left in a hollow mood
no regrets i have of this turning tide.
