WSP_0162_Get On

from by Jonathan Burks



cleaning out my song closet. I started this one a couple of years ago, finished it up this week.


there lies my heart hung up on the fence
stubborn ripple thru the rag is the only breath that's left

gotta get over, gotta get on

caught up in the barbwire ,roasting in the sun
I do believe my goose is cooked
serve it up what's done is done

gotta get over, gotta get on

dragging my heels, no bounce left in my step
plugging along is the only move I got left

gotta get over, gotta get on

caught up in the cusp of some kind of release
frozen in the wave, ice blocks around my feet

gotta get over, gotta get on


from Weekly Song Post, track released April 5, 2016
recorded on a Zoom H2 in my kitchen on Fratney St.

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!
