"Messes" as written by and David Shannon Bazan Jason Martin....
You used to keep me a secret
That nobody else could know
Made me feel so alone
But I'll be damned if I let it show
But now it's like you hardly know me
So I've been busy minding my own
But I'm finding your finger prints
In some places they don't belong
Be careful cause the lights come on
Without a warning

People seem so confused
When they take home what they earn
He left a dark place behind him
And hell was just a bottle away
But heaven's what he told himself
At the end of a long day
Surprised him when she came home early
Caught him with his hand in the jar
He tried to protest
But he was already done for

Messes in the dark make headlines every morning
Everyone makes mistakes
Like it's the only way we learn
Be careful cause the lights come on
Without a warning
People seem so confused
When they're caught with some bullshit
Messes in the dark make headlines every morning
Everyone makes mistakes
Like it's the only way we learn

    Listen to the Starflyer 59 song "Broken Arm (Feat. David Bazan)" from the album Ghosts of The Past. It's the lyrics from "Forest Fires" / "Lost My Shape" but musically, it fits the "Forest Fire" version.

    Now listen to Bazan's song "Messes" from Strange Negotiations. It is the music from "Broken Arm" / "Forest Fire."
