WSP_0206_Exit Strategy [rough mix]

from by Jonathan Burks



leaves are getting thin
out here on the limb
you can see the landscape
in all it's vacant heartache

full force of the wind
cutting thru my chin
sand of my glass jaw
rolling thru the back door

mind on the prize
nose to the grind
head in the clouds
boat on the brine
I'm owning this moment
victory is mine
hands on the plow
toes on the line

moving on what's next
with embryonic steps
goosebumps are my map quest
follow my excitement

shattered like a glass floor
picking up my slack jaw
no stitch left to hem haw
you get what you ask for

resistance is fertile
friction grows the flame
furrows on my brow
could use some gasoline

the tiger needs an eyepatch
went ahead and grabbed my groove back
man, I got a deep scratch
nothing gonna salve that

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!
