“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.

“I’m Alright” – lyrics

by on Mar.17, 2017, under Lyrics

“I’m Alright”

I’m alright
I’m alright
I don’t need someone else to tell me
I’m alright
I’m alright
ask yourself why you’re staring at me
with your blue hair
and your blonde eyes…
ambulances waiting for you outside.
you’re so strange
but don’t change
you’re the only one stranger than me
and i’m alright.

i’m alright
i’m alright
i kick the judge
and i spit at the jury
i’m alright
i’m alright
ask yourself what you want to be
when you grow up
will you throw up
when you think about boys like me
that’s alright
that’s alright
but dont bother begging me for mercy
and i’m alright.

i’m ok
you’re ok
i’m ok
you’re ok
i’m alright

“Long Way Down” – lyrics

by on Mar.04, 2017, under Lyrics

“Long Way Down” 

And I fall from heaven.
Dogs begin to howl.

The moon is red and cryin’.
A witch turns gray and bows.
And it’s a long way down.

Cracks begin to open
in the sky and in the ground.

The fire seems to know me,
it calls my name out loud.
And it’s a long way down.

Angels writhe above me.
I’m dressed in sin and gown.
Roll out your red carpet.
I’m coming to your town.
And it’s a long way down.

Oh, baby, gimme back my soul.
Don’t take it.
Leave it in my rock and roll.

And it’s a long way down.
It’s a long way down.

“Oblivious” – lyrics

by on Mar.04, 2017, under Lyrics

“Oblivious”

I know it looks like I am just staring at the sky… oblivious.
Oh. no.
I know it looks like I get distracted by the stars sometimes.
Oh, no.

No matter where I am.
No matter what I do.
No matter how far away I am from you…
Your love is all I’m thinking of.
Your eyes are all I see.
Your hand is all I feel.
Touch my heart and it will heal.
I just know it will.

I know it seems like I lose track of the days and 
time goes by and on.
Oh, no.

No matter where I am.
No matter what I do.
No matter how far away I am from you…
Your love is all I’m thinking of.
Your eyes are all I see.
Your hand is all I feel.
Touch my heart and it will heal.
I just know it will.
Oh, yeah… I just know it will.

“King of Spiders” – lyrics

by on Mar.03, 2017, under Lyrics

“King of Spiders”

Just like the tears of dandelions…
people they fly away.
Somewhere east of The Belt Of Orion…
people they fly away.
When the moon sleeps above the horizon…
people they fly away.

Take it from me, The King of Spiders…
people they lie in wait.
The dreams of machines are weaved in wire…
and people they lie in wait.

With the patience of saints, freaks and liars…
people they lie in wait.

We’re all so strange.
We’re all so strange.
My God we’re all deranged.
Oh, God we’re all insane.

For reasons unknown and infinite reasons…
people they fly away.
In groups of one, sometimes in legions…
people they fly away.
They change their minds, I don’t believe them…
people they flay away.

We’re all so strange.
We’re all so strange.
My God we’re all deranged.
Oh, God we’re all insane.

“Rabbits” – lyrics

by on Mar.03, 2017, under Lyrics

“Rabbits”

What were you thinking of, my love…
when you broke my heart?
I guess it never occurred to you…
the sky would fall apart.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

What were you thinking when you called
from a thousand miles away?
And I don’t don’t know where you are
but I can hear the sound of trains.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

What were you thinking love was then?
A word to say out loud only when you want something
like rabbits from the clowns.

What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?

I sold my soul for you.
I spent my gold on you.
Committed crimes untold for you.
If I may be so bold….
What did you think?
And what were you thinking?
What did you think?
