Off the Stone

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

one grain at a time
lifting weight from the stone
giving up to the wind 
what ain't mine to hold
can't tip the slope of the hill
got to lessen the load

tectonic plates
ain't got nothing on me
rearranging my face
grinding glacially 
where I'm at right now
ain't where I'm going to be

roll away the moss
motion shakes off debris
everything you lost
is something that you don't need
sometimes getting crushed
is just getting free

every step of the way
every bend of the fold
I'm breaking skin
crawling out of my mold
I ain't the same as I was before
what I am right now 
tomorrow won't be no more

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

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!

Jon
