01. The Greatest Story Ever Told

All the Hype That Money Can Buy
by Five Iron Frenzy


“How's your life?""How are things?"
"Great they're going okay!"
Something stale and superficial
Not to ruin your day
Something swell, something gay
With the toothiest smile
Something sappy, something happy
Something smells like bile
I don't want to burst your bubble
Not to rain on your parade
Underneath my skin I'm tired
Limping down the path I've made
The clap of thunder in my veins
Breaks on barren manifold
Still and small and so mundane
The greatest story ever told

Are you crawling through the dismal?
Gray of nothing, frostbite kills
Does this world make light of weaving?
Shrouds to bury, graves to fill
I am just a kindred spirit
A runner who is running still?
Welcome to the longest mile
The most costly thing you'll ever hold
Wonderful is the journey
The greatest story ever told

All my dreams are slowly dying
I can count my years in scars
The only one that's never left me
Has carried me so very far
I've heard it said that he wastes nothing
So beautiful to behold
The Author of my hope is writing
The greatest story ever told
