WSP_0215_Nothing Oh Nothing

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

it's a good and short con, pawn to king four
a simplified playbook, that's complexity well informed
by hook or crook, by tooth and nail
a win aint nothing but the lump sum of every fail

time oh time slipping away
me and nothing getting closer every day

math and creation intersect
in ways and places we aint discovered yet
I am where I'm going, where I'm getting to
we aint nothing but the shadow of a light that's passing through

everyone got their own version of truth
a way to think about love and how to do
by hook or crook, by tooth and nail
you can be the handle or the hole in the pail

time oh time slipping away
me and nothing getting closer everyday
nothing oh nothing getting closer everyday

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

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!

Jon
