WSP 257 Holding Pattern

from Weekly Song Project v3 by Jonathan Burks



recorded live at Circle A on May 12th, 2018


lately my mouth don't do nothing but whine
need to sharpen the edge of my battle cry
I got one foot rooted in the mess I'm in
and the other one moving on, I'm spreading thin

blade to the path, I don't chiromance 
got a read on the backside of the task at hand
I'm catching lumps taking it on the chin
most times where you're at aint where you're trying to get

I fall to pieces like Humpty Dump
the hunch in my back is packed with psychic junk
I'm sweeping up, separating wants and needs
I aint trying to keep what don't fit up my sleeve

rebuilding the backend, updating the code
rearranging the furniture up in my dome
I'm YouTubing yoga, stretching my limbs
expanding my reach till I'm handling it

drop a line in the water, you catch a boot sometimes
resistance and dead weight are not too hard to find
fish in a barrel aint no fun to eat
I'm seven seas deep, harpoon tucked in my teeth 

a head that's liquid got some give
what slips through the cracks parts for the fin
flash in the pan evaporate quick
it's the grease on the grill that makes the fire stick
