WSP_0233_Go It Alone

lyrics

I’m walking, I’m drifting, I’m free
Like bits of weave tumbling city street
Aint nothing as clean as the dust
I’m kicking up, disturbed and unstuck

It’s no good to go it alone
That’s just a hardwired fact of the code
That DNA graffiti of old
Sketched deep in the walls of our soul

I aint missing as much as I can
Rabbit ears tuned hot on the scent
Them satellite pupils redact
There stands the darkness taken aback

Well it’s no good to go it alone
So they say, don’t cha know
I’m reaching out the meat of my soul
Shaking hand and getting to know

The cold arms of forever the squeeze
Every you, every me

There’s joy in the absence of proof
Between the lines of every me and you
The fork in the eye of the road
Between getting there and where you go

It’s no good to go it alone
That’s just a hardwired fact of the code
That DNA graffiti of old
Sketched deep in the walls of our soul

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
