Last Thing That You Do

(The Crumbling Empire Of White People)

All your life
You've been waiting for this moment to arrive
But now the moment feels too tidy and contrived
And you wonder if it's worth it to survive
Yet another set of wishes
Here it is
Believe it
Open wide
Receive it
Hear the word
And cleave unto its spell

To realize a precious legacy
To sanctify the passing through
Just tell the girl you love
You love her more than words can cover
If it's the last thing that you do

All your dreams
No they never came to pass and now life seems
Like a hot and shameful failure of extremes
And you wonder what this condemnation means
For the coming day of judgment
Here it is
Believe it
Open wide
Receive it
Hear the word
And cleave unto its spell

Leave behind mementos mori
Recount your blessings one more time
This existence is a storyboard
A shadow-puppet pantomime
