I failed the test
I am the mess
from whence disaster sprang

And from this depth
I shan’t progress
but carry it in vein

They treat you as if
you’re some derelict prince
they built you to break you
and make you repent

Take your boots off
there’s no bridge to cross

I’ll set my pen down
and sit in the dark

There’s nothing to ask
if we don’t want to talk
