'In the Mystery'
outtake from my 2006 release, Bones of the Tree

lyrics

mine is a water sign
I get wet I get dry
it's all just a state of mind
mine is a water sign

full moon is high
I feel the pull of the tide
levy's busted open wide
flooding this ol' heart of mine

liquid is light
I seen 'em both in her eyes
in the folds of her mind
in the soul of her thighs

I feel the pull of the tide
it cuts like ice
carving up this glacial night
opening up the great divide

swimming in the mystery
fishing neath a shady tree
sipping from a slippery stream
rolling like a stone across the belly of the beast
in the mystery
sitting on a fallen tree
slithering thru the swampy reeds
skipping like a stone
washing up on the beach

there's a path, there's a current
viciously determined
frothing and churning
raw meat in the broth of learning

soft curve of a wave
cuts like a knife
washing away and rearranging
the lines of a life

the bones of a man
fold and crumble like sand
in the palm of a plan
in the ducts and channels of a hand

swimming in the mystery
fishing neath a shady tree
sipping from a slippery stream
rolling like a stone across the belly of the beast
in the mystery
sitting on a fallen tree
slithering thru the swampy weeds
rolling like a stone
washing up on the beach

mine is a water sign
I get wet I get dry
mine is a water sign

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.
