Get a Rise

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

I try to do right and be good
still sometimes I don't act like I should
and the way I'm feeling right now
I'm bound to do wrong and how

when the moon is high
the tide is bound to rise


and who am I to flow against the flood
and damn the path that is my blood
this river runs ragged and low
that's just how it rolls

when it rains it pours
and when it pours
the shoreline tends to rise


gonna make like a wave and ride
gonna float my boat on alcohol
and let the rip-tide be my guide
I'm going out and in
all around and back again

like a phoenix from a neon nest
hell yes I'm gonna rise


and who am I to blow against the sin
and cling to the leaf that is this skin
there's a cold breeze tugging at my coat sleeve
begging me adrift

when the wind is high
dust and debris
they get a rise

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.
