"The Mess We Make" finds Benjamin Francis Leftwich singing about his own introspection, both as an individual and an artist. Look at the mess we make, locking ourselves away
On so many beautiful days
But how can I separate, the songs from the mistakes
"It's about checking myself, and saying like, 'Look at all the chaos I'm capable of causing when left to my own devices,'" Leftwich explained to NME
. "When I [can] sit and look back, check myself and then move forward with more understanding and compassion for myself, before I can share that with anyone else."
