about

The Bushwick Book Club Brooklyn, New York

We started in January 2009 playing songs written in response to Kurt Vonnegut's Breakfast of Champions. We haven't stopped since. We've written & performed songs inspired by everything from "On The Origin of Species" to Dr. Seuss to Raymond Carver. There are BBCs popping up nationwide now. Bushwick Book Club Seattle started in 2010 & is run by Geoff Larson. Our nerdy dare-devilry knows no bounds. ... more

Track Name: Susan Hwang - Pulling Those Strings
Blood is transition.
You lie in the car that you’ve driven
without knowing how.

So you bleed and you wait
for the strings only fate
can pull for you now.

Nothing to do but lick your wounds.
You don’t know where you’re going.

But you’re in a vehicle and soon you’ll see it’ll
go places you’ve never been.

You’re hurt from battle
But it’s nothing that’ll
Stop you from what’s in store
You’ve got many more.

What hurts you now is healing
Even if that's not how it's feeling.
There’s more to see
More loss and more victories.

You won't drain away so easily.
You know fate is pulling those strings.

When you've made friends with the agony,
and you're bored enough of the suffering...
When all you feel is futility,
and there's nothing left to do but sing...
When you've taken all that you can take,
you know fate
is pulling those strings.

Fate keeps pulling those strings.
