WSP 154 Untitled

from by Jonathan Burks



I been writing more than I been living
I been talking to myself more than anybody else
it's an odd inclination I been given
love the alone time, live for the song

I been thinking, lord I been thinking
round and round these walls my thoughts scramble and crawl
the only time my soul is calm completely
is when my head is empty and there's room for the song

it's all been sung and done before I know
stronger hands than these have crafted finer works of prose
this light aint the brightest but it shines
love the limitations, live for the rhyme

I been dreaming, baby I been scheming
thought maps on the ceiling, post-its on the cabinet doors
let this be my tombstone when I'm gone
die when you have to, live for the song

"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.
