lyrics

Lullaby (inspired by Wake Up, Sir)

little one, you’re tired

little one, you’re blue

when darkness comes, she covers you



stories in your head

stakes in your heart

insanity, or is it art



you want escape

in dreams you’re found

by the crushed grape

in its waters drown



go to sleep, my love

go where you’re free

and lose your mind as you lose your keys



half of you is self

half of you is breath

your brain cells meet untimely death



you want escape

in dreams you’re found

by the crushed grape

in its waters drown



taking flight on

the tips of wing

where busts are bronze and

serotonin springs



you want escape

in dreams you’re found

by the crushed grape

in its waters drown



wrecked from the start

straight to your heart

wrecked from the start

the way to your heart

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
