(Update for How Things Go)

I was not the first
I will not be the last
I am not even the best

I try hard not to be the worst
but the small shadow I cast
can’t even bring darkness to your light
I am a man with two balls in his pants
one ambitious brain to direct two hands
and a heart in his chest
but heck sing at my grave at least I tried.
