"My Finest Hour" is track five on the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown." Remember that this is a summary, not the entire story! It is like 1-10% of what is actually going on—just the skeleton.

StoryEdit

In this chapter, Prill has set sail for the first time in eight years. He is filled with a courageous verve and experiences a moment of great clarity as he takes to the sea and begins his new journey—ready to redeem himself and be whole again. There is however a slight inkling of indifference within his being, and he is not sure what to think of it. 

LyricsEdit

With much plight, I rose to full height

Matching a hero!

-The atramentous sky beating down

And I was too proud to admit

That all I had gained was a mess of dilemmas

And I would not call this an encore

T'was a brand new stage!


Throw your pigeons a pie!

This is my finest hour!

Though you saw my return,

You didn't see I'm no coward


On my side, I noticed a dial

No numbers or indication for sleight of my hand

The way had been sealed from the inside

The outside was weathered—much like myself

So I poked and prodded its nature for the story it'd tell


Throw your pigeons a pie!

This is my finest hour!

Though you saw my return,

You didn't see I'm no coward

With a heart opened wide,

And a soul turning outward

There was nothing to change

Not in my finest hour


And I reckon I'm cured

So I sound out a hearty hallelujah!

For the world looks much more perfect

Through less sensitive eyes


I read this on a paper that could represent my life

At first I deemed it hostile,

For I only saw in one dimension

It's overwhelming just to think I was so blind

The answers I've been searching for are already here!

If I'd just look around!

Open the coffins I pretend are eyelids and stare!

They're already here,

And I saw past it all in disbelief


Then my soul felt light as a feather

And your waves had ushered my return

That saline air I breathed brought memories of your shore

So I poked and prodded your nature

For the story you'd been trying to tell me

It was written in stardust, but I was too prideful to see!


Throw your pigeons a pie!

This is my finest hour!

Though you saw my return,

You didn't see I'm no coward

With a heart opened wide,

And a soul turning outward

There was nothing to change

Not in my finest hour

Not in my finest hour  

This is my finest hour!

  • This song is loosely based on the tune of the amnaeon song, "The Door & The Mountain," but the final song only contains a few seconds of a riff from that track.
