Liner Notes: 

I've been organizing the garage and parts of the house while my mom is on vacation and I suspect when she comes back she will complain because her bedroom is still a mess.

I've been writing melodies for all these songs although I'm unable to post them, but I'm not sure how to describe this one to you so that you can imagine an approximation. The only phrase that comes to mind is "righteous wrath".

Lyrics: 

It's your mess and not mine
It's your mess and not mine
To err is human
To clean up is divine
And it's your mess
And not mine

Some turn to Jesus
Some turn to God
Some turn to drink
And some turn very odd

It's your mess and not mine
It's your mess and not mine
To err is human
To clean up is divine
And it's your mess
And not mine

So when you pray
For me to clean a mess
Watch what you say
I'm next to godliness

It's your mess and not mine
It's your mess and not mine
To err is human
To clean up is divine
And it's your mess
And not mine



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
