“Eyes Talk” – lyrics/video

by on Aug.06, 2017, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

“Eyes Talk”

you talk about me… what about you?

you talk about me… what about you?

half of it’s lies, the other half’s true.

we could talk about me but what about you?

when night falls, light the fire.

when eyes talk, it’s of desire.

when night falls, light the fire.

eyes say, “you hurt me and i can’t go on.”

hearts say, “you love me and our love is strong.”

you talk about me… what about you?

you talk about me… what about you?

i made you cry, you made me blue.

we could talk about me but what about you?

when night falls, light the fire.

when eyes talk, it’s of desire.

when night falls, light the fire.

eyes say, “this hurts me and i can’t go on.”

hearts say, “you love me and our love is strong.”

you talk about me… what about you?

you talk about me… what about you?

half of it’s lies, the other half’s true.

we could talk about me but what about you?

“Ever?” – lyrics/video

by on Aug.06, 2017, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

“Ever?”

ever cry your self to sleep at night

just to escape the troubles that claw your mind?

ever just shake your head and wonder why

life is so hard… love takes so long to find?

when the rain comes down… no place to hide.

in the city or the countryside.

rains for days til you cant take no more…

crying in mirrors, behind your bedroom door.

no more tears for you my beautiful girl.

it’s just you and me against the world.

moonlight shines upon your weary face.

and tomorrow is another day.

tell me your dreams in the morning light

and hold onto me, everything’s gonna be alright.

no more tears from you my beautiful girl.

it’s just you and me against the world.

“Ego” – lyrics

by on Aug.06, 2017, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

“Ego”

i drive a big fat car because you hand me your keys.

you think i care who you are but you dont matter to me.

i cast my swine before pearls but you’re too stupid to see.

and i like to sit in my lair and watch myself on TV

you don’t even know that you bought it for me.

my ego stomped on New York, my ego swallowed L.A.

my ego is my wife but i never get laid.

and i wonder why because i’m so effing great.

my ego blocks out the sun… my ego’s bigger than sky

my ego weighs a ton… that’s no effing lie.

I’m so focused on me that i can’t even see

I’m egomaniac.

I’m so in love with me that i can’t even see

I’m egomaniac.

i sound like somebody else every single time.

i got nothing to say and i say it in rhymes.

i charge you for my graph and no one knows who i am.

it makes you feel so good when you kiss my ass.

someone knows i’m a fool…. and he just laughs.

I’m so focused on me that i can’t even see

I’m egomaniac

I’m so in love with me that i can’t even see

I’m egomaniac

“This Is True” – lyrics and video

by on Jul.30, 2017, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

This Is True

Some days I go down to the cold streets in Dream Town.

i feel at home… safe somehow

walking on the wire there’s no looking down.

oh, babe,

i’m closer now to the peace place

that i’ve dreamed about

steal my heart, look all around…

it all belongs to me, when the stars come out.

we can always laugh about it…

remember times when we were smiling…

and when it hurts just passing hours

oh, you have me and i have you

and this is true.

this is true.

Long, long, long is the day… gone, gone, long gone away.

here comes the night like a bird on the wing.

turn on your light so my world to see.

we can always dream about it…

a love that’s never ending.

and in its time, as life is fading,

you’ll run to me and I’ll comfort you…

and this is true

this is true.

“Ruby Slippers”

by on Jul.10, 2017, under Lyrics

“Ruby Slippers”
(c) 2017 by earl kayoss

Watching the news from your rocking chair world

you don’t recognize the face of the girl

who climbed up the church and hangs from the steeple

in view of the town and all its good people.

As her ruby slippers gleam in the sun.

The Wizard Of Oz says, “Her dream has just begun.”

Thinking all hope is lost and gone with the wind

you stand on your chair… slide a rope passed your grin…

and outside your window the thunder begins.

The rain at first silent, now a terrible din

is the sound of all souls swept away by the storming

of life’s little habit to change without warning

Take what you learn from  “The Sound Of Music”

keep it in your heart and don’t ever lose it.

Our lives, like the days, come and they go…

and think what you will but we don’t really know…

after the breathing, after this show

is there another movie… where no one grows old?

Every sunrise, come daylight, your eyes and your blinds close.

“if there is a god…”

by on Jul.10, 2017, under Lyrics

“if there is a god, what is his problem?”
(c) 2017 by earl kayoss

if there is a god, what is his problem?

if there is a god, what is his problem?

if there is a god, what is he thinking?

watching this suffering without even blinking

my poor mother earth

if there’s a god it’s getting hard to tell

i’ll believe when it’s a cold day in hell

my poor mother earth

if there is a god, what is his problem?

if there is a god, what is his problem?

unjustifiable, genocidal, suicidal maniacal madness

my poor mother earth

i recognize the method  to your madness

at least spare the children this sadness

and my poor mother earth

there’s a road that winds through heaven

there’s a river that flows through hell

i’ve been a long time walking homeward

i’ve been along time sailing ’round as well.

if there is a god, what is his problem?

if there is a god, what is his problem?

“wait til they find all the people i’ve killed”

“wait til they find all the people i’ve killed”
(c) 2017 by earl kayoss

wait til they find all the people i’ve killed

wait til they find all the people i’ve thrilled

they’re digging up the garden

there’s babies in the basement

mommy’s in the attic

i never knew what love meant

wait til they find all the people i’ve killed

wait til they find all the people i’ve thrilled

there’s no room in the freezer

hitch-hikers in the trunk

i had to hide my teacher

in a junk pile by some drunk punks

wait til they find all the people i’ve killed

there’s neighbors inside the burgers i’ve grilled

wait til they find all the people i’ve killed

there’s neighbors inside the burgers i’ve grilled

Press Release: “The Resurrection of Ants” release date. April 14, 2017.

by on Apr.02, 2017, under Gigs, Photos, Random Stuff

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Introducing “The Resurrection of Ants” – The first new recorded music from Life On Mars in two years.


Available Friday, April 14th, 2017.

 

From The Bronx, New York, prolific songwriter and musician Earl Kayoss has written over 700 songs and his website is called, rather appropriately Over700Songs.com. Earl says that the lyrics are the most important part of the creative process to him; with each of his songs, he wrote the lyrics first with the music springing out of the lyrics. Earl is an ASCAP-registered songwriter and his ASCAP publishing company is “Vindictive Cat Ltd.”Earl released his debut album in 2009 called “Disarray.” An EP titled “Nancy’s Finger” along with his 2nd full length album “Beyond the Reach of the Infinite Mercy of God” followed in 2014.

Life On Mars 

The band “Life On Mars” was formed in 2014 from a fateful collision between two worlds (Earl meets Fernando Perdomo) and consists of fellow ACR Management artist, Fernando Perdomo, who is both producer, engineer and artist on vocals, and most instruments. Earl is the principle songwriter and artist on vocals and guitar and piano. Life On Mars also features Durga McBroom (Pink Floyd) on lead and backing vocals. Another great artist recently added to the band, Ruti Celli, on lead vocals and cello. As the project “Life On Mars”, they released their debut 10-track album “Far” to critical acclaim in May 2015.

“The Resurrection of Ants”

Before embarking on the journey whose final destination was the Life On Mars album “The Resurrection of Ants”, I wondered what it was that my most-loved bands had in common. Why were these bands and their songs my favorites, my influences over the decades. I realized it was two things they all had in common. The first being the most obvious… they each had uniquely gifted musicians whose uniqueness was the biggest contribution to the songs that made the songs what they were… great songs. The second took some thought. I finally realized that these bands all had the ability to run the entire spectrum of the song range and… get away with it. It was still “them” no matter how far and wide the songs themselves ranged in style, structure and intent. The Beatles could do “Blackbird” and “Helter Skelter… it was still The Beatles. Led Zeppelin could do “Going to California” and “Kashmir”… it was still Zep. David Bowie explored and delivered the entire spectrum of the capability of songs throughout his entire career. Everything fit together, everything was ONE with these bands, no matter how far the songs themselves differed from one another. There’s alot of absolutely great bands you could never say that about… they had their “niche” and they stayed within those walls with their songs, never venturing outside those walls. With the Life On Mars band, I had the uniquely gifted musicians. I added the diversity of songs and let the players have at them and add their uniqueness to my songs. I believe I created an album in the likeness of my most-loved bands… an album with unique and great musicians and… songs that are diverse but they are still Life On Mars, they are still Earl Kayoss, they all go together seamlessly to form one single work of art. Nothing seems out of place at all. – ek.
