Reason Still was the last song to be written for the album - in fact it was only finished once the rest of the album had already been recorded. I was mentored by the lovely Jo Mango through its composing and she pushed my writing to the limit and for that I am very grateful. This song tackles the issue of false humility and how it is often difficult to distinguish it from the genuine article.


This humble labouring crofter that harvests pride within
Is not worth the endless praise you insist to heap on him

But you seem to make an art
To instill within his heart
Words his arrogance preserves
And words he does not deserve

The mighty spartan strides and girds his breastplate strong
But beneath a trembling child withstands the burden of it all

But you find reason still
To in his heart instill
Words his arrogance preserves
And words he does not deserve

So just a peaceful traveller I may seem
But inside a battle rages
So tether me down and throw away the key
To end my aimless wandering
