Always on Fire Take me to the lights so blurry Each night over the city purring  The molecular strutting, timeless, complete  The seeds are planted in concrete Every breath, every brethren  Jagged rhythms in the broken pieces of heaven Friction in the callous and the cruel, Between the heartlessness and you, And all the thirst for power brings The appetite of kings And all your desire sings like a siren Brooklyn is always on fire The sacred and profane, just temperature  Your mind is playing tricks on you Behind a mother holding hands  Is a child who was once a man So disparate yet tightly wound  Our appetite seduced by sound  Fuchsia, Aquamarine will play The latest micro-dosed decay While the crooks and kleptocrats Dress in basic black We dance and we fan the flame forever higher, (listen)  Brooklyn is always on fire Here, how we made it with the ice inside our veins Here, the honor to share this moment with everyone on this train Here, the molten gold that runs so hot beneath this bliss Here, I’m so in love I’d drink the very air with the thirst I feel every time we kiss And all I see is your face while we spin in place Spiraling through time and space And desire Brooklyn is always on fire

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
