Albus is the ‘you’ who is ‘dyed in the wool’, he wants to be freer but ‘how will (he) learn to steer when (he’s) grinding all (his) gears’. The things he’s been taught are secrets, even from Gellert. Albus in his youth ‘used to be such a lion’ before trauma had him hesitating before breathing. I’ve always thought that Albus should have been in Ravenclaw, but I guess he must have used to be more of a Gryffindor, that being able to rush freely into things was his true nature, before he became so bound because of secrets and rules.
Every line of this song fits the Grindeldore pairing, the singer POV is obviously Gellert:
"Back when you never thought I’d never get this far / But did you really think I’d shut the door? / The futures calling and I’m going to answer"
Gellert who won’t rule out the means to power that Albus considered too dark, because the ‘potion’ he never drank was Albus’s restraint There is also a line where Gellert notes that Albus believes that ‘time will wash every tower to the sea’ (‘and now you got this worry in your heart’).



The Shins - It’s Only Life - Port of Morrow
Dyed in the wool, you’ve been cornered by a natural desire
You want to hop along with this giddy throng through life
But how will you learn to steer when you’re grinding all your gears?
You’ve been talking for hours
You say “time will wash every tower to the sea”
And now you’ve got this worry in your heart
Well, I guess it’s only life. It’s only natural
We all spend a little while going down the rabbit hole
The things they taught you
They’re lining up to haunt you
They’ve got your back against the wall
I call you on the telephone
Won’t you pick up the receiver?
I’ve been down the very road you’re walking now
It doesn’t have to be so dark and lonesome
It takes a while but we can figure this thing out and turn it back around
You used to be such a lion
Before you got into all this crying on my lap
Back when you never thought I’d never get this far
But did you really think I’d shut the door?
The futures calling and I’m going to answer
The wheels in motion
I never drank your potion and I know it breaks your heart
Open up your parachute
Something’s got to stop the free-fall
I’ve been down the very road you’re walking on
It takes a while but we can figure this thing out and turn it back around
It doesn’t have to be so dark and lonesome.
