  1. November Lyrics Contest

    Eleanor Robot Eleanor robot, lifts up the box to be moved by conveyors and belts No guilt is felt Look at her working, doing the jobs of the humans for 3 shifts a day All with out pay All the jobless people, what job did they come from All the jobless people, where do they all belong Robot Mc Uber replaces a human named Steven that once drove this truck Steve's out of luck Drives past the shelter, not seeing that Steve is now cursing and shaking his fist He wont be missed All the jobless people, what job did they come from All the jobless people, where do they all belong Robot Mc Dozer, tears down the Macys and Penny's that anchored the mall Flattens them all Pushes the ruble, into the pile that was block buster, now long since gone Gone amazon All the jobless people, whatever shall they do All the jobless people, when will they include you`

    I Need a Shoulder to Dry On A simple set of steps this journey's harder by the day Seems the more I travel, the less I see the place Even though I've asked for Betty Ford to be my guide Another spirit's always there to captivate my stride I am a friend of Bill but I’ve been known to shut him out When we don’t talk I backslide as I toss away the towel And even as I try to fight this turmoil I despise Another spirit's always there to wet my appetite I'm tired but its such easy courage Summer blizzards and wired dawns Suitcases are always packed I need a shoulder to dry on Been in and out of fog and lost the sense of what is real I tried the straight and narrow path, within a few degrees But even as I'm hanging on I’m close to compromised Another spirit's always there to tempt and tantalize I'm tired but its such easy courage Summer blizzards and wired dawns Suitcases are always packed I need a shoulder to dry on This wagon's lost its wheels, I need a ride my friend I'm trying so very very hard but I've fallen off again I'm tired but its such easy courage Summer blizzards and wired dawns Suitcases are always packed I need a shoulder to dry on I know I carry burdens, it’s so hard to lift my weight But if you'll try I'll try to make it lighter by the day And if I stumble, I hope you'll hold me up awhile And be the spirit always there to get me through the night I'm tired but its such easy courage Summer blizzards and wired dawns Suitcases are always packed I need a shoulder to dry on

    Eighteen Wheeler (Take Me Home) 23 when he got trained That very year he bought a rig Told the bank he'd pay that loan Called around for his first load Been out drivin' ever since Back in Nashville: wife and kids Country rocks his radio He sings along, his tires drone: (ch) "Fifteen years here on the road Shiftin' gears and haulin' loads Tennessee's where I belong Eighteen wheeler take me home" Fifteen years and fifteen more He trucked those goods from shore to shore And when his heart could feel a sting That lonely cab would hear him sing: "Thirty years here on the road Shiftin' gears and haulin' loads Tennessee's where I belong Eighteen wheeler take me home" Two decades more, took his last run Dropped his cargo, headed home A devil's wind A stormy night A hairpin turn Ended his life ... Eighteen wheels, fam'ly and friends Carried him to where he rests The I-24's just past the trees The big trucks roar His voice still rides the breeze: "Fifty years out on the road Shiftin' gears and haulin' loads Tennessee's where I belong Eighteen wheeler take me home" "Tennessee's where I belong Eighteen wheeler take me home"

    Freckles Verse there are fireworks in the air and dandelions in your hair your eyes illuminated blue but man this feels like deja vu Verse no I wont, I wont wave that flag these bad times must be a gag I'm having fun out in the sun while all these cops are playing with their guns Chorus sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing Verse well I don't know, I don't know. I don't know, i don't know whats going on! all I know, all I know, all I know, all I know I want to lay with you out in the sun exposing our freckles one by one. Chorus sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing Bridge But somewhere theres a different story plaguing all of this glory the sun gets hot at end of June. And somewhere someone asks is there any hope to succeed? As my freckles are exposed I count up the small victories. Chorus sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing sunshine walking in the sunshine watching everybody playing

    Odd things I'm gonna write this song about some odd things Like Office Parker and that baton that he swings No foreign affairs or finger puppet Prime Ministers Nuclear fusion or thought philosophers Chorus Although I come to think it's true With a little forward motion you just might make it through Cause an action required a reaction yes indeed With a little friction and some simple chemistry Morning glory has such sensational stories Like Officer Parker's Pocket binoculars Sniding crime most of the time The tales he could tell, but oh well But if you care to take a seat Officer Parker can walk his beat Chorus Although I come to think it's true With a little forward motion you just might make it through Cause an action required a reaction yes indeed With a little friction and some simple chemistry Mrs wiseman, well she married a pieman Made Lemon Meringue's for crazy Lorraine she liked Starbuck's coffee drizzled with salted toffee Lorraine wasn't really insane She acted out the part, she did entertain Chorus X2 Although I come to think it's true With A little forward motion we just might make it through Cause an action required a reaction yes indeed With a little friction and some simple chemistry

    Gods Paradise "We are all that's left, we got away That's our starship in the bay We set our course to journey home Mars' colony's in meltdown mode" ( Ch ) "Earth used to be our wonderland With nature's beauty all around A precious jewel amongst the stars God's paradise was truly ours" Then climate change grew out of hand Pollution ravaged air, sea and land, Ozone depleted, wildlife died "Not our fault" some fools denied Greed stripped nature's forests bare Eradication everywhere Wars and famine, genocide "Don't worry" politicians lied "Is that the date? we have to fly According to our starship guide We must have travelled back through time This is the day the planet died" ( Ch ) "Earth used to be our wonderland With nature's beauty all around A precious jewel amongst the stars God's paradise was truly ours" Finale Man's time on earth has gone at last No more will nature be harassed There'll never be the same again Thank God's Earth is done with man

    Swept Away Verse 1: A pounding in my head nowhere to go but down just fading lights of hope to watch my sorrows drown Circling on empty the well of life's run dry screaming on the inside but not a tear to cry Chorus: When the walls begin to crumble and there's nothing left to pray hold out your hand to Jesus and get swept away Verse 2: Hate and desperation anywhere but here life inside a prison that rotting smell of fear Some days I sit and wonder I close my eyes and dream the sound of crystal water flows down a mountain stream Chorus: When the walls begin to crumble and there's nothing left to pray hold out your hand to Jesus and get swept away Bridge: If only for a moment this world no longer spins I look around and smile a brand new life begins Chorus: When the walls begin to crumble and there's nothing left to pray hold out your hand to Jesus and get swept away Hold out your hand to Jesus and get swept away

    Turned To Grey The one I always look to My one and only ever love Took my heart and desire To a place like that above My passion and devotion More intense everyday Each new day a paramount And it never can allay Only nearly perfect now Then a premonition today The world stopped somehow As I heard the voice say The one I’d always look to Passed into another day My vision of the future All of it turned to grey As I began to shudder The air filled with gloom The walls were closing in Imagination left the room The world became distant Then it all just fell away And departed into nowhere There's nothing you can say Filled with pain and misery Now a year for each new day Everything I've ever known All of it turned to grey The days grew ever darker Turning to forever night Looking at the days to come With no one by my side My being filled with fear Staring at a blank display My senses now evanesce With nothing left to pray Never more any feeling It's all been replaced As numbness settled in To overtake, any grace My convictions gone away Each one, I’d disavow My mind began to diminish Even more so now Ever ever fading Everything turned to grey But soon it all was over As it all just blew away

    When Men Get Together When men get together They can argue about whatever... Hot cars and cold beer Live ammo and dead deer Quiche on a charcoal grill Movies that gave them a thrill When men get together They really would rather... Tell the tallest of tall tales Turn a minnow into a whale Cause all guys love to tell lies For things of any shape or size When men get together They can fight over... Mom's sweet apple pie What happens when you die God's gift of free will Girls that gave them a chill When men get together They sure do remember... The woman who got away The one who didn't stay They'll have that look in their eye Till the day they die When men get together To sing about their adventures... The knight doesn't need his armor To save the princess in the tower But the knight will regret the day He convinced her to stay

    An Old Veteran’s Last Request Yonder lies a soldier. Or at least there rest his bones. Snug beside his kindred souls. Beneath the flags and stones. Duty honor country Not just words we learned in school The soldier’s Code of Conduct Despite the ridicule Pedants and demagogues And the cynics though may scorn We dug deep within ourselves Learned to stand up in the storm No substitute f’victory No need for graveside speeches We shaped the course of hist’ry ‘Tween hedgerows and beaches In jungles, pastures, cities In deserts, seas and shores We who wished with dying breath May this be the last war Those days tones and tints now They have vanished from my view But I hear the bugler’s call And the drumbeats tattoo Shadows are lengthening And the twilight is most near This is truly sacred ground Please leave my body here With these men beside me Rest in peace forever more Our prayers answered from above We have seen our last war.

    THE LAST SWIM The whispering sea calls out to me Come shelter in my sanctuary, Tonight I'll swim beneath dark skies When I grow tired death is my prize, I feel the lights behind me fade But I won't stop my midnight raid, I'll reach my goal and free my soul When my body’s dead and it's gone cold, Chorus So before I’ve seen my moon’s last fall Before I’ve shaken this mortal coil Give me rock’n’roll that’s new I don’t want music that’s been used Give me something to make me think Something to keep me off the drink My arms are heavy, and they pull me down I'm out too far and I can't turn 'round, I see your face I can smell your hair Be patient girl I'm almost there, Tonight the moon will see us rise As we enter black paradise, We'll swim into the peaceful night Beneath dark skies, our moon shines bright Chorus So before I’ve seen my moon’s last fall, Before I’ve shaken this mortal coil Give me rock’n’roll that’s new I don’t want music that’s been used Give me something to make me think Something to keep me off the drink…………
