Beta Blues

lyrics

better be on yourself, don’t let no one tell you how to do
people love to pin you in the limits of their little view
but the future is an unknown
can’t nobody say no sooth

you gotta be a skeptic but don’t use your mind like and excuse
it’s hard work finding the good sometimes aint that the truth
there’s a lot you can’t change
but something’s always up to you

you don’t get what you want, you get what you get
if your mind’s locked down you don’t see no openings
aint nothing for certain, many ways of getting it

INST

you don’t get what you want, you get what you get
if your mind’s locked down you don’t see no openings
aint nothing for certain, many ways of getting it

cut your own path build a home to house your highest truth
pivot or press on, iterate out them beta blues
version on up
get on that you.2

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
