WSP 162 Get On

from Weekly Song Project v2 by Jonathan Burks



cleaning out my song closet. I started this one a couple of years ago, finished it up this week.


there lies my heart hung up on the fence
stubborn ripple thru the rag is the only breath that's left

gotta get over, gotta get on

caught up in the barbwire ,roasting in the sun
I do believe my goose is cooked
serve it up what's done is done

gotta get over, gotta get on

dragging my heels, no bounce left in my step
plugging along is the only move I got left

gotta get over, gotta get on

caught up in the cusp of some kind of release
frozen in the wave, ice blocks around my feet

gotta get over, gotta get on


from Weekly Song Project v2, track released April 5, 2016
recorded on a Zoom H2 in my kitchen on Fratney St.

"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.
