lyrics

Born to be the making of a dream
Pills and roses, a potent recipe
The talented were given jars and sheets
The talentless slept under the sink

A barker is trained to speak in code
Love buried underneath the word
Whispering first but soon the seats would shake
The power in your voice beneath the wake
The trouble was you never could see through me
Like I saw through you

Home can feel like a cage with no bars
But there’s the key

What's the price you'd pay to be unique
Limbs and tails replaced with space and peace
The trouble was you never could see through me

I was under the impression that
You were used to being stared at

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
