WSP 030 Blame

from Weekly Song Project v1 by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

sitting on a duffle bag
waiting on a train
wondering if heaven's
really up there above the rain

looking at a puddle
feeling like it knows my shame
I stepped in the mud
I got only me to blame

looking out the window
can't see past my face
broken lines and severed ties
put the truth in frame

it aint a pretty picture
it's not the one I want to paint
I want to say you done me wrong
but I only got me to blame

quiet towns pass on by
slumbering with ease
lonely streetlights fight the good fight
pushing back the brink

it looks like their loosing
and I'm looking the same
I can't condemn the darkness
I got only me to blame

buried in motion
knee deep in the wave
when you're low and heavy
gravity's such a drag

I don't mind the fall from grace
but it just seems I'm falling in place
everywhere I put my feet
I got only me to blame

about

Jonathan Burks Milwaukee, Wisconsin

"When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro"

here's some pro tips:

1) Keep a scream journal. Scream into a camera or microphone at least once a day. Any word or sound will work. "FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK" seems to work for me.

2) Dance for 5 minutes daily. Dance on the way to the bathroom or kitchen. Dance as ugly as you can.

3) Make funny faces. Sit in front of a mirror and get strange.
