Words & Music by Johndus Beckman~on Great Song Writers of Seattle



We love great music, lyrics and story-telling on Xanaland, and we especially love cheeky little monkeys like Johndus who emanate passion and achieve soulful songwriting that inspires many-- especially other musicians. Please enjoy these 3 songs with their lyrics. Johndus is the singer of The Mothership as well as several other Seattle music projects.


Gotta Go by Johndus Beckman

 For all that you know
I'm a cloud of dust 
Stuck in limbo and so desolate 
All that you know is less than none 
And all that I know is I've just begun
I'd love to sit and tell you everything
But I've gotta go 

Keep your evil dramatic mess
from my demons cuz their over it 
And all that you know is less than one 
And all that I know is enough's enough

And I love the place my head is resting now 
Nestled cozy here beneath the shoreline clouds 
And I love the place my bones are resting now 
Soon enough they'll be right here in the ground 
Jeep your evil dramatic mess
From my demons cuz their over it 

And I'd love to sit and tell you everything-but I've got to go

Slippy written by Johndus Beckman 
from The Mothership's 
Bright Side of Dim 

All of my battle scars 
are little reminders to prove I'm alive 
Proof that I've come this far
a cold cold pulseless heart
give it a jolt man-give it a spark
help me uncross my wires
I'm not the same at all

Enough of these blacked out nights
All I can remember is how I forgot 
A chemical paradigm 
All of my battle scars 
Are little reminders that prove I'm alive
Prove that I've come this far
I'm not the same at all

This debaucherous monster keeps me alive 
This debaucherous mantra keeps me deprived

My Twitching 
written by Johndus Beckman 
The Mothership's 
Bright Side of Dim 

Hey, whats this? 
Well I dont know...my name today 
I'm crawling...out of my ditch now 
and I know nothing 
Along with me, is my twitching 
But I dont know its name 
Whoever hit that switch there 
Really fucked me 

Well I now see
I now see I'm sick 
And it finally 
It finally caught up...with me 
Hey,  whats this?
Well I dont know
my name today
