Parade (c) 2016 by earl kayoss

I lay me down and the fields begin to snow.
I have two blankets… the wind and the cold.
I’ll stay.
I’ll stay.
Nowhere to go.
Nowhere to go.

I lay me down in the middle of the road.
I fall asleep and I dream I’m all alone.
I’ll stay.
I’ll stay.
Nowhere to go.
Nowhere to go.

So many highways know my name… but I can’t recall.
I don’t recognize my own face.
So many hours in a day, I watch them all.
Marching in their suicide parade.

My headlights shine at the bottom of the lake.
I have some time but no desire escape.
I’ll stay.
I’ll stay.
Nowhere to go.
Nowhere to go.

So many highways know my name… but I can’t recall.
I don’t recognize my own faith.
So many hours in a day, I watch them all.
Marching in their suicide parade.

Insects (a poem) my first and only poem. – ek.

Insects (a poem)

(c) 2016 by earl kayoss

Talking with ants

below tall green skyscraper blades of grass.

We weep in the endless hours and in the jaws of time.

I understand them and so do I.

They are my only friends.

I fall asleep among them.

They blanket me.

I am warm and safe inside their frenzied cocoon.

Dressed only in bees, I dance in the meadow…

The deafening applause of yellow robot butterflies.

Flowers blue and electric, plugged into the end of the sky.

I reign in the shrill screams of mosquitoes,

Their syphons in my brain seek knowledge.

I kneel before them.

They worship me.

I am a God in their million eyes.

Victim of the mating Mantis,

I dream with severed head.

Locusts swarm the horizon,

to block the sun with bad intent.

Spiders black and advancing try hopelessly to intervene

Slaughtered by wailing witch and wasp… who turn their grins at me.

“I promise thee… the horror of the process of dying

is equal to the peace one finds in death.”

Says the butterfly to the dragonfly

with its final breath.

“Nancy’s Finger” – lyrics

“Nancy’s Finger”

© 2014 by earl kayoss

 

They turn my light on
they want to find me
I’m under my bed
where i am hiding
ohhhhhh…. Don’t  drag me downstairs

I hear my heartbeat
so loud in my head
I’m grinding my teeth
fear’s holding my breath
ohhhhhh they’ll drag me downstairs

You’ve been a bad boy
You’ve been a bad boy

They laugh like giants
I beg for mercy
don’t leave me down here
come back and hurt me
ohhhhhhhhh don’t leave me down here

One locked black window
one door cold-bolted shut
now Nancy’s Finger
arrives to tear me up
all to pieces down here

You’ve been a bad boy
you’ve been a bad boy!

synesthesia

by on May.13, 2014, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

Yesterday 4:54 AM
Very interesting interview. Especially fascinating to me are +Earl Kayoss ‘s statements about the processes he is experiencing when writing a song. The lyrics “contain” the music. Once the lyrics are there the music “comes out” of the words. This sounds like what I have read about the ability of synesthesia: one type or two types of senses are combined with a second or third, like numbers being connected to colors or forms. An example for this is Daniel Tammet. There are several videos on him on YouTube.

Some people think that this might have been the case for example with Jimi Hendrix. In the studio he would explain to Eddie Kramer the engineer the music he was trying to record with the help of colors.

Looking at the immense musical creativity of +Earl Kayoss having written and recorded more than 700 songs makes a lot of sense, when he explains that the music comes so to speak in a package with the lyrics.

I have listened to several of his songs that +Rupert Cheek posted along with the interview and I enjoyed all of them.
Those who have not done that yet should quickly head over to read +Earl Kayoss ‘s bio on www.over700songs.com. Just do not forget to take a dose of humor along with you.

Erich, thx so much for your kind words and insight. I actually believe there is some correlation to the synesthesia you mentioned, and my songwriting… although it wouldn’t have ever crossed my mind without your insight. It makes what happens with my songwriting all make sense. I see no other plausible explanation for it and I’ve always wondered “why” it is the way it is with me but… it just is. Some folks, when they see numbers, they see colors simultaneously, there is no difference between colors and numbers to them at all. Its strange but to me, not that strange at all because when I see lyrics, I see/hear music SIMULTANEOUSLY, there truly is literally no difference between them to me, they literally are one-in-the-same to me. To say it’s “tangible” TO ME WOULD ACTUALLY BE AN UNDERSTATEMENT. – ek

+Earl Kayoss , thank you very much for your response. What you are describing even more detailed than in +Rupert Cheek ‘s interview makes a whole lot of sense to me. I consider this as an exceptional musical gift you are having and sharing with those people who are lucky to hear your songs. Have a nice day, Erich

Erich, I sincerely appreciate you listening to my song. It means a great deal to me. Your wonderful insight has made me think of something that I otherwise would never have considered and… what you said makes a lot of things make sense and fall together like pieces of a puzzle I was having a hard time fitting together. You’re very kind for taking a moment to read my interview and listen to my song. Your kindness is dearly appreciated. – ek

The Line – Lyrics

by on Apr.05, 2014, under Lyrics, Random Stuff

the line by earl kayoss (c) 2013.

some thing’s they just cross the line.
there’s no turning back this time.
why should i enumerate them?
the morning light illuminates them
and you already know deep inside
you crossed the line.

all it takes to break a heart
is just one word in several parts.
promises lie broke in pieces
winter is the only season
when you already know deep inside
you crossed the line.

i’ll spit-shine my shoes
i’ll spit-shine my blues
in sleazy bars and cheap saloons

you cant even say you’re sorry
i wont let you say you’re sorry…
why should i entertain you?
you crossed the line
i cant blame you
when i already know deep inside
i crossed the line

i’ll spit-shine my shoes
i’ll spit-shine my blues
in sleazy bars and cheap saloons

some thing’s they just cross the line.
there’s no turning back this time.
why should i enumerate them?
the morning light illuminates them
and you already know deep inside
you crossed the line.

“either way” (c) 2014 by earl kayoss

tomorrow, I will raise the sun…
so the sun shines down on you.
In the morning, I will lift the sun…
so the light shines down on you.
and if I lose the fight…
I promise I will dry the rain for you.

In the sleeping, I’ll watch over you…
so the ghosts don’t follow you.
in the dreaming, I’ll awaken you
so the ghosts don’t swallow you.
when you’re trapped inside…
I’ll get you through the night,
I will never leave your side.
so don’t you cry, either way it’s gonna be alright.

 we’re all the same inside
so I know exactly who you are.
we’re all the same inside.
so I know exactly how you feel.
we’re all the same inside.
so I know exactly what to do…
I give you my love
if you think you’re gonna fall.
I give you my love
if you think you’re gonna fall.

tomorrow, I will raise the sun…
so the sun shines down on you.
In the morning, I will lift the sun…
so the light shines down on you.
and if I lose the fight… I promise I
will dry the rain for you.

“Granted” written 1.10.14 (c)  2014 by earl kayoss

We take love. We take it for granted.
Love is like water.
We take time. We take it for granted.
Time is the Father…

Fate is the son and Chance is the daughter
There’s no guarantees expressed by the author…

We take life. We take it for granted.
Life is a moment.
You take me… you take me for granted.
I am in transit.

We take light. We take it for granted.
Light is a secret.
We take sight. We take it for granted.
Sight is amazing…

There’s other dimensions we don’t even know.
We could trip and fall in and never grow old.

We take us… ourselves for granted.
But…
We are so special.
