WSP 172 Monkey Teeth

from by Jonathan Burks



I have a hard time letting go
afraid to lose my hold
upon some kind of feeling
that I've come to know

get my head wrapped around
some notion I've found
when it outlives its usefulness
I forget to put it down

it's a thin line between what's real
and just how ya feel
I don't trust any one of us
not to slip on that banana peel

a joke lands or it don't
some plans just won't
keep on darlin, keep rolling on
whatever floats your boat

be a dog, get your head out
the ride is going past
suck it up, every ounce of wind
this weather aint gonna last

"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.
