She Is Gone

from by Jonathan Burks



I found my soul in the cracks of the sofa
with an old pizza box and a soda pop bottle top
rocking out every day with this new-fangled method
pressing my face to the pain to taste this life lesson

she is gone

the healthy move on through the land of the living
while dinosaurs in bliss skip through their doomed existences
paving natures way, the embodiment of evolving
the bitter-sweet ruthlessness of being human

she is gone

need me a crush to smush this smoldering ember
a new flame to make pale all these stubborn remembrances
aint got the gumption to chase no women around
so I'll just write it down till all these feelings are gone

gone gone gone

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!
