WSP 088 Wrong Side of Life

lyrics

woke up this morning
on the wrong side of life
feeling like a wrath
heart pumping nothing but ice

on the wrong side of life

no kind of action
underneath my skin
not a trace of movement
nothing much happening

I can't find my breath
I must be undead
nothing but echoes
bouncing round in my chest

it's late in the morning
but everything is black
aint a cloud up in the sky
but I aint seeing that

drank a cup of coffee
it sprang out a hole in my gut
somebody pass the duct tape
I believe I'm out of luck

got a thankless job
my kind comes a dozen a dime
they don't need me sticking round
so why am I?

full moon rising
blood dripping from it's chin
don't need a postcard
to know where she been

mouth full of dirt
coffin lid neath my fingernails
when I wasn't looking
my foot must have kicked the pail

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.
