Bloody Knuckles

lyrics

I'm not an easy man to love or live with
I've spent a lot of time on my knees
I'm done with bending over for forgiveness
this heart is a fickle shark, love it or leave

you ride me all the time like a circus donkey
no wonder I bark and bray like a drunken ass
my back is aching, I must buck and break free
you can dangle carrots for some other monkey man

a warm bed starts to feel like cold shackles
a light kiss turns to vice grip too darn fast
are we holding hands or playing bloody knuckles
when we dance it just feels like a wrestling match

I'm moving out of this dingy ol' dog house
gonna let my tail surface and wag
no more bending over for forgiveness
no more all fours I'm standing on my own two legs

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.
