To Meet Your Maker

from The New Art History by Our Lost Infantry

/

lyrics

teleology gave us pause for thought. a mirror conversation in the absence of god. a pragmatist i've always been but desperate to believe. in holy welfare handouts i'm not programmed to receive. the devil's in the details, or so they say, at least. what's heresy between us but a reason not to speak? and if i am circumspect in spilling out my truth. be sure that i am frightened, not just trying to be aloof. fearful of the dialogue, this means to just one end. let sleeping sages lie and maybe i can stay your friend. you're mumbling st. anselm with a knife across your chest. this pretence of righteous anger, give it all a fucking rest. when you go to meet your maker, may it live up to your dreams. but this absence isn't public, it's between my god and me (the lights are all on, but no-one's home)
