lyrics

I don't want no god talk at my funeral
Jesus is alright but he aint my main man
it's all of ya'll whom I love so dearly
it's you alone who made me what I am

god is good but god made me faulty
it's you alone who made me so good
send me off in flames hot and rowdy
don't you bury me in no box of wood

I don't want no sad songs at my funeral
I sing 'em now but I won't need 'em then
sing about them pastures of plenty
sing about how that circle never ends

and I don't want no crying at my funeral
but if you must, fill a cup up with wine
and take a drink for every drop that falls
and know that you are a friend of mine

I don't want no god talk at my funeral
if you must read something, quote some Tortilla Flat
and let all my fucked up friends know I'm so thankful
it's you alone who made me what good I am

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
