After that canticle of a valedictory address
You ran away on the overnight sleeper to Inverness
Digging through the many layers of your personality
Shows me that time as top of the class was your finality

Looking outward from inside your mind's eye
Reminds me of a glassy sea under foreboding sky
Encapsulates your fondest memories for posterity
But shows me you've always been a friable personality

Once you were cherished and beloved of the people
Until they saw you as crooked as the church steeple
There you stood just grinning like a Cheshire cat
In a horribly expensive coat and John Lennon hat

After that canticle of a valedictory address
You ran away on the overnight sleeper to Inverness
Digging through the many layers of your personality
Shows me that time as top of the class was your finality

In the end it all comes down to the catalyst of iconoclasm
That forced you to flee from that insurmountable chasm
Now walking that lonely road in tune with your heart
An apology for all those believers would be a start

There's many bridges to build on the road to Inverness
Each one a resolution for all the ills you have to confess
Outwardly it paints an atmospheric monochrome mood
Your hoping that valediction shows you're not crude

Still after that canticle of a valedictory address
The best you could do was run away to Inverness
