The Mess We Make

from by Mark Lenover



If I die out here, do me a favour:
Show my folks and friends
where the shadows end
Apologize, for my misbehaviour
for the stylish hell
that I wore so well
For the mess I made
For the mess I made
For the mess I made of things

If I die behind, some glittering fiction
tear the curtains down
air the shambles out
And promise me, to pray with conviction
for the neglected horde
beyond the idol’s horns
About the mess we made
The mess we made
The mess we made of things
