Twelve Steps

from Loudmouth Soup by Jonathan Burks



my battle with the bottle has brought me
to a place where there's nothing to loose
a landscape void and vacant
a sky too dark to be blue
I'm on the straight and narrow
walking that line so true
but wont no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

it's true I was cruel and selfish
it's true I was jealous and mean
but it wasn't my true heart speaking
was the demons I blithely set free
down in the wake of my folly
onward my feet they move
but won't no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

as I sift thru the wreckage
of the mess I made of my life
I cannot help but wonder
if I could have made you my wife
I know that you still love me
but not like you used to do
won't no twelve steps take me
any closer to you

"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.
