about

recorded live at Circle A on September 1st, 2017

lyrics

one grain at a time
lifting weight from the stone
giving up to the wind 
what ain't mine to hold
can't tip the slope of the hill
got to lessen the load

tectonic plates
ain't got nothing on me
rearranging my face
grinding glacially 
where I'm at right now
ain't where I'm going to be

roll away the moss
motion shakes off debris
everything you lost
is something that you don't need
sometimes getting crushed
is just getting free

every step of the way
every bend of the fold
I'm breaking skin
crawling out of my mold
I ain't the same as I was before
what I am right now 
tomorrow won't be no more

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.
