Track Name: Next New Thing
Verse 1:
investigating under every rock and crevasse
scrutinizing each tree
chasing all the bunny trails that I find
looking for something new to see

Chorus:
I'm ready for a new thing
I'm ready for the next new thing
hope it's not a temporary fling
cause I’m ready for the next new thing

Verse 2:
my hair is gray and thin on the top
my eyebrows are sprouting like a weed
my knees have given up, they groan and creak
time has crept up on me

Bridge:
while the view from here is a site to see,
I think it's getting time for a change of scenery
Track Name: I Drive a Pacer
Verse 1:
Ruby red body, fat mag wheels
You'd think I paid a fortune, but I got a steal
It was an old clunker, but now it's a racer...
I drive a Pacer.

Verse 2:
When I’m drivin’ down the road people stare at me
I know they're jealous 'cause of what they see
I cut through the traffic like a, a sharpened razor...
I drive a Pacer.

Verse 3:
I listen to some pumpin’ tunes on my 8-track
While cruisin' in my double-wide fishbowl Cadillac
The sun is shining through as hot as a laser...
I drive a Pacer.
Track Name: Beautiful Headache
Verse 1:
Monday morning in my car, on the highway
Man, that sun is really bright
It’s only Monday but I wish that it was Friday
I'm gonna do nothing but sleep tonight

Chorus:
I got a beautiful headache
I got a beautiful headache
getting up was a big mistake
I got a beautiful headache, ow, ow

Verse 2:
ibuprofen in my hand, and a glass of water
hopefully they'll kick in soon
in another half an hour, still a little sweet and sour
I think I might be immune

Bridge:
There’s some consequences makin me feel numb
a big boom in my brain like a big bass drum
Track Name: Where's My Robot Now?
Verse 1:
i was contemplating all the chores i needed to do
and then it hit me, that's work i have ta do
so i made an itty bitty mechanical chum
to do my laundry and to clean my room

Verse 2:
he’s a mechanical marvel all electricity
intermediate coding floating in his body
but his most amazing feature is his personality
he hates to do chores just as much as me

Chorus:
where's my robot now
I think he's hiding again, it's a possibility, oh
where's my robot now
I think he's hiding, I think he's hiding from me, oh yeah

Verse 3:
i think he's creeping round the corner, think he's turning off his fan
i think he just discovered that he's workin for the Man
I think he’s shut down all his boring functionality
cause just like me he hates responsibility

Bridge:
when i go to sleep, is he underneath my bed?
will he turn on me and kick me in the head?
i can't get any rest, my bot is fillin me with dread
if i make him do the vacuuming, i think I might just end up dead
Track Name: You Shine
Verse 1:
I’m walking along a dead end road
It’s my fault I’m here ‘cause I didn’t know where to go
shadows creepin round my mind
reminding me that I’ll find

Chorus:
Even in the blackest night
Your brightness blinds
And even in my darkest hour
you shine

Verse 2:
I don’t believe what’s in my mind
it’s outta hand, and it’s wasting all my time
I realize I crossed a line
can you cut through this and shine?

Bridge:
when I’m hiding from the light
in the blackest night
you shine
Track Name: all music, lyrics, and performances by David Lee King - Eternity
Verse 1:
longer than a highway, winding around
wider than a Kansas thunder cloud
faster than an airplane, up in the sky
with it’s jet engines screamin out

Chorus 1:
It’s just eternity

Verse 2:
thinkin ‘bout my rocky history
thinkin’ ‘bout my eyes and what they see
I think I’m ok, think I’ll be alright
but I hope I don’t die tonight

Chorus 2:
Cause It’s eternity, just eternity
feels a bit like fantasy
but it’s got a date with me
just eternity

Bridge:
right now it’s so hard to see
feels a little far away but I know it’s my destiny
Track Name: God, forgiveness, justice, judgement, sin, Kansas City, fog, foggy, - Eraser
Verse 1:
Buildings disappearing all around
I see eraser fallout on the ground
I wonder what’ll happen to the city where I work
I wonder what’ll happen when it’s erased down to the dirt

Chorus:
It’s the day Kansas City was erased
by the hand of God

Verse 2:
Cars are driving slowly, drivers wear a frown
They’re having trouble getting to downtown
I wonder what’ll happen to those miserable jerks
I wonder what’ll happen when they’re erased down to the dirt

Verse 3:
Everything is disappearing, fading fast
I see a big eraser smudging past
I wonder what’ll happen, will it happen to me
I wonder what’ll happen, it’s such a mystery
Track Name: Don't Get It
Verse 1:
hangin out at one a.m. everybody’s havin fun
Singin' Bon Jovi karaoke so bad I wanna run

Verse 2:
They think they're amazing, cool as an arctic breeze
but their off-key drunken singing makes me wanna scream

Chorus:
I don’t get it, I don’t get it
I don’t understand what’s really happenin’?
I don't get it

Verse 3:
dude at the dinner table sharing his thoughts on God and morality
I look around, and once again I’m in the minority

Bridge:
everyone is different, everyone can change
but I don’t understand why everyone’s insane!
Track Name: song, writing, songwriting, songwriter, melody, melodies, creative, creative process, creation, DIY, - In My Head
Verse 1:
I got a melody on my tongue
It's quite oblique, never been sung
still a mystery, can't quite see
But I'm pretty sure that I'm gonna set it free

Chorus:
I wanna write the songs in my head
I wanna write the songs in my head
I wanna write the songs that keep me outta bed at night
I wanna write the songs … in my head

Verse 2:
Harmonies and rhythms skipping in my brain
Pounding on the pavement driving me insane
Gotta corner those notes and make a melody
Open up the floodgates and set them free
Track Name: Dry Road
Verse 1:
Dusty clouds around my head
burn my eyes, and turn them red
hot wind blowin in my face
pushin me back the way I came

Chorus:
I’m on a dry road and I really need some rain
on a dry road and I really need some rain
I think I drifted a bit too far away
I’m on a dry road and I really need some rain

Verse 2:
sand has slowly filled my soul
It's weight has started to take a toll
I planned to find a shorter way
now I’m stuck here today

Bridge:
God guide me out today
How did I get so far away
When I really should have stayed
God show me the way
Track Name: Everything's Temporary
Verse 1:
My body’s gonna fall apart some day
My mind will waste away
The house I live in will tumble down
My memories will fade like an evaporating cloud

Pre-chorus:
I know all this is true
And I want to be with you… cause

Chorus:
Everything’s temporary
Everything under the sun
Everything’s temporary
But your love

Verse 2:
These feelings I have will disappear
My hopes, my hurts, my fears
There’s nothing I sing that’s gonna stay
This guitar I play will turn to dust and float away
