WSP_0173_Deep Search

from by Jonathan Burks



aint waiting round with bated breath
boot drop don't designate next step
you get yours honey, I got mine
I'm working out my piece of the pie

I took my last chance
gonna grab something better than that

disconnect, discontent
working all the time, barely making rent
feel a bit like human fuel
for somebody else's dream come true

you aint got a chance
you have something better than that

the world we're in has got the bends
coming up too quick thru the primal depths
mounting pressure, space/time rift in our bones
as we breach the surface on the tail winds of the soul

we aint got a chance
we have something better than that


from Weekly Song Post, track released June 28, 2016
recording details: sm58 on vocals, electrovoice on fender acoustic. zoomH5, living room Fratney St. facing window with blanket up on window

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!
