about

This is the third in a series of three songs that I wrote inspired by a conversation with Adam Robinson on Tim Ferris podcast number 219.

lyrics

it was the Year of the Fulcrum Pivot
his dance moves were blocks of rust
she stepped on his toes till feet flowed
they sailed off fit to bust

he wasn't big on games of chance
cautiously he threw down on black
she bet on red, she lit up his head
he pushed in his entire stack

so close, so far away
the word sits dumb on the tip of a tongue
in a mouth that's too proud to pray

it was the Year of the Fulcrum Pivot
she took his rough farmer hand
into the world like a flag unfurled
she was the cloth of his thought, his breath

so close, so far away
the word sits dumb on the tip of a tongue
in a head that don't know how to pray

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.
