WSP_0228_Self Talk

from by Jonathan Burks



get up or stay down
you do or you don't aint no middle ground

keep on or quit
that's the only choice there is

cash out or double down
you can only rule the day till tomorrow comes round

get up, move something
hard work is itself a means to an end

what others do, what others don't
aint your business, mind your own

grab the fire, feel the burn
sometimes the gain is just how it's earned

I'm grateful for what I got
it's all I need, aint that a lot?

I got plans, I got goals
present tense is where it all unfolds

giving up is the only sin
if you loose the day, night is yours to win

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!
