from by Jonathan Burks



please forgive this artistic temperament
I'm gifted
a megalomaniac with no self confidence
I'm shifty
ego ping-ponging between extremes
I aint shit
I am the shit
thin line between pretentiousness
and a sense of self worthlessness

I have my way with words
and they have their way with me
they play me like a strum
leave me daft and dumb
I work my lips and tongue
until my mouth and mind are numb
still they won't come
innuendo out the word hole
burrow into mole hills
make mountains out of nothing
just to climb up to something
feeling fun and frisky
laid back like frisbee
let's toss some love around


from God Talk, track released October 26, 2011

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

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!
