"My Finest Hour" is track five on the Hungry Lights studio album "Heavy Is The Crown."

StoryEdit

This chapter is Prill's moment of clarity. This is the first time he has returned to the sea since his tragic failure to catch Fothcrah. He is filled with the nostalgia of his younger self, and he truly believes that nothing can stop him from completing his quest—not this time.

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 passed 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 

 Trivia Edit

  • 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. 
  • The title of this song may have been recycled from the amnaeon album title "Evolution At Its Finest Hour," which was an early demo album for Heavy Is The Crown, released in 2011.
