WSP_0172_Monkey Teeth

from by Jonathan Burks



I have a hard time letting go
afraid to lose my hold
upon some kind of feeling
that I've come to know

get my head wrapped around
some notion I've found
when it outlives its usefulness
I forget to put it down

it's a thin line between what's real
and just how ya feel
I don't trust any one of us
not to slip on that banana peel

a joke lands or it don't
some plans just won't
keep on darlin, keep rolling on
whatever floats your boat

be a dog, get your head out
the ride is going past
suck it up, every ounce of wind
this weather aint gonna last

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!
