about

lyrics

A list of equipment. Here’s what you’ll need.
A mortal and pestle to crush up the seeds
of optimism into a flour
to dust everything that you devour.

The readjusting of standards
goes hand in hand with
Looking on the bright side
And remembering, we’re all gonna die.

A wire whip for what it’s worth,
Turns heavy cream into a fluffy mirth.
A large balloon whip to froth and to mix
with self forgiveness if you can find it.

When you’re feeling bad
And you need a hand
Against the doomy forces
Cheer up, we’re all just walking just walking corpses.

Here's what you need.

All friendships must be an eighth inch thick.
Keep them fortified or risk getting sick
From toxic reactions that tragically
turn them into burdens as bad as family… Yech…

Coping with decisions
that you regret
tou’ll need a forgiveness mill
and a compassion press.

Non-stick friends
Non-stick emotions
Non-sadness
Non-stick thoughts
Keep them away from kooks and non-cooks and don’t expect the surfaces to last forever.
It's what you need.
A list of equipment.

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
