Take This Genre

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

you can take this genre and shove it
I don't want no part of no fashionable scene
why dwell on the differences
it's all just music to me

it's cool to be a punk rocker
and to make fun of the hippies
but they seem the same to me
fashion devours every honest movement
and churns out mediocrity

the close mindedness of the folk scene
it pains me, it really burns
cause 'folk' means of the people
and the people are diverse

from Woody Guthrie to Eazy E
from 'this land is your land' to 'fuck the police'
people of every race, color and creed can agree
greedy bitches run the land from sea to shinning sea
no rest till we get it back from them
if it's poor against poor only the rich will win
compassion needs action like i need music
like the folk scene needs Johny B in it

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
