Song for the Mofa Seven
Jamie Barnes

Lover of mine
It’s time for us to leave
The age of subtlety is finally over
Lover of mine
You’ve got to give it up to God
Unfold out of the dark and make things happen

If we make it through security
We’ll ask the Germans, the Japanese,
Rush the gates of every embassy

It won’t always be
It won’t always be this bad
It won’t always be.

You’ve got to push the kids in first
Get a foot on forgiving land
And I’ll push away the bayonets
And push away Satan’s hand
And go past the walls and past the filth
Past the dogs of Kim Jong-Il
Cross the waters up on rotted stilts

It won’t always be
It won’t always be this bad
It won’t always be

Lover of mine
You’ve got to show me where you are
Hang out your bloody star from the hooks of heaven

And I will take you out with a grieving spoon,
Smuggle you out behind black balloons,
And we’ll take the victory lap around the dying moon.

It won’t always be
It won’t always be this bad
It won’t always be
