WSP_0241_Lower Bound

from by Jonathan Burks



an old guitar is a thing of beauty
I wonder how many hands this body’s known
how many sat in this folding chair before me
trying to get some kind of hold

I’m down and lower bound

here it comes that not-feeling feeling
suddenly everywhere always
a torn and forever comfortless tapestry
an endless chorus of relentless told-you-so‘s

how do I remember when I’m in a fail-brain mode
what my good side seems to always know
nothing lasts, it aint personal
you’re never really suffering alone

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!
