I’m yearning towards some grand design

Wherein I sew Thief (2014) shut again

And myself in with it

I’m yearning towards some grand design

Thief and Nitrome and the album

All of them bigger than possible

At least if you believe all this hype about mortality

I’m yearning towards some grand design

That means something, I just don’t know (Y)

(Y) being the button you press to Focus

Unless you’re playing with the “Classic Thief Mode” modifier

I’m yearning towards some grand design

But I’m grappling with diminishing returns

Maybe that phrase only has three good stanzas in it

— -

I’m yearning towards some grand design

A mushroom above my head tells me to

Dig, Dig, Dig

And who am I to argue with a mushroom

If you know, you know

I’m yearning towards some grand design

What if players played two cards a turn instead of one?

Sure it’s imbalanced, but who isn’t?

I’m yearning towards some grand design

And it’s comforting to know

That the grander the design, the less likely I reach it

I’d hate to sully it with this crap
