Game Over

lyrics

Got more baggage than a train got freight
there’s a knifey hobo knocking round the corners of my brain
open like deep cut, don’t stitch me up
bugs and black stuff crawling out my guts
one for the money, two for the whooooo
can’t hold my liquor but I can hold my shrooms
fungi or two help me work out the proof
solid math from the floor to the roof

you get to live till you die, that’s it nice try

they say people look like their dog
I’m holding ghost leash, walking monologue
talking to my self about mental health
‘I think we’re going to be ok’
I have my doubts
it’s one for the fun of it, to decorate time
three four the rhyme
getting things done
captain obvious pun
don’t take me yet lord I only just begun

you get to live till you die, that’s it nice try

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.
