We come in and we go out In between we're talking about Storks and Vultures Oh me my, don't ask why Gotta get some of that American Pie Storks and Vultures Everybody loves the sun Waiting for the Golden One. Storks and Vultures. I'm just plain and I'm not wise I can not stand the compromise Of Storks and Vultures I was old and now I'm young My new life has just begun Storks and Vultures Everybody loves the sun Waiting for the Golden One. Storks and Vultures. Have you wondered why Why they gotta fly? Have you wondered how, Here and now? Storks and Vultures. We come in and we go out In between we're talking about Storks and Vultures Oh me my, don't ask why Gotta get some of that American Pie Storks and Vultures Everybody loves the sun Waiting for the Golden One. Storks and Vultures. We come in and we go out We come in and we go out We come in and we go out. (c) 2020 Keith Walsh

Time moves in you, does television tell the truth? It's all that we can do, to try and break on through I was once lonely too, then I felt the shock of the blue That's when I met you. All the misfits and zeroes are Hollywood Heroes in another world Where nothing goes wrong and there's laughing and song everyday. Take me to the part, where they break the lover's heart, I'll switch it off. Dialogue and lies, and David Bowie's eyes, did we even try to see the other side? Everyone's given a part, to learn to play it with heart, I can since I met you. All the misfits and zeroes are Hollywood Heroes in another world Where nothing goes wrong and there's laughing and song everyday. Take me to the part, where they break the lover's heart, I'll walk out. (c) 2020 Keith Walsh

Walk Away 03:44
Cold winter feelings ripple over me As I lay my head on the old concrete This is a nightmare, it's not who i am People walking by do not give a damn Just walk away from me, if you don't care to care We're not so different, there's just one world we share You could see it, if you'd only look inside We don't need more emptiness When will the supermen come? To save us from oblivion It's not over When will we take it to heart? Before the universe tears us apart, It's not over.... Busy little moments that define me As I make my way across the crowded street No one knows of my anxiety But I've barely had a moment of tranquility Just walk away from me, if you don't want to know Don't try to change me, you're just living for the show I'm only running, just trying to win this race We don't need more emptiness When will the supermen come? To save us from oblivion It's not over When will we take it to heart? Before the universe tears us apart, It's not over.... When we go to sleep at night we dream the dreams of old When we tell the truth we say the truth just as we're told When will the supermen come? To save us from oblivion It's not over When will we take it to heart? Before the universe tears us apart, It's not over.... (c) 2020 Keith Walsh

Target, it’s a corporate super market Come in for some offers and get some thrills Target, it’s your hyper corner market Shopping’s lots of fun until you get the bills. Can you believe all these deals, though Can you believe all these deals…. Target, it's where you get the latest sprocket It’s a fortune out of pocket but it’s never wrong Target, you’d better get there early They’re often overworked and lines are extra long. Can you believe all those deals though Can you believe all those deals... Gainful employment is very good indeed Gainful employment, nearly set me free But if I think too hard about all they’ve said and done I would be too frightened of this thing that I’ve become. © 2020 Keith Walsh

Everbody’s talkin bout the people on the left Everybody’s talkin bout the people on the right Everyone is wondering bout the man whose hands are too small But I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. Everybody's trying very hard to get ahead Everybody's fighting with the rhythm in their head Everybody's trying to find the truth in it all. But I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. Everyone’s talkin, but they’re so punch drunk. Everyone’s squawkin. Everyone scolds me, nobody holds me in this jam. Nobody knows me. But I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don't care at all.I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. I don’t care at all. ©2020 Keith Walsh

Secular Song 03:06
I was born in a town that was lost and then found Very far from the sound of the sea Right from the start, a rebel at heart Just like my daddy before me. Mom said “be wise, lift up your eyes Don’t do like your daddy has done Work hard in school, don’t play the fool Walk in the light of the sun.” I might have been richer, my life might be longer To conquer the world with a love that is stronger If daddy was wise, as wise as can be If daddy loved the good book, as much as he loved money. Time has gone by, and now I know why Momma’s words sounded so true As years go their way, I still hear her say “Don’t let this old world destroy you.” I might have been richer, my life might be longer To conquer the world with a love that is stronger If daddy was wise, as wise as can be If daddy loved the good book, as much as he loved money. Every generation blames the one that came before It’s always been the same but it doesn’t change the nature of our pain When the storm is rolling in, and the walls come crashing down Envision yourself in a new town. I was born in a town that was lost and then found Very far from the sound of the sea Right from the start, a rebel at heart Just like my daddy before me. Mom said “be wise, lift up your eyes Don’t do like your daddy has done Work hard in school, don’t play the fool Walk in the light of the sun.” I might have been richer, my life might be longer To conquer the world with a love that is stronger If daddy was wise, as wise as can be If daddy loved the good book, as much as he loved money. © 2020 Keith Walsh

Spazzmatazz 04:58
I don’t want to go where nobody goes (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I don’t want to fight with someone who’s right (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I don’t want to be where nobody’s free (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I’m not a guy who deserves to cry (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) Chorus I’m a spazzmatazz and I know what I know I’m a spazzmatazz and I go where I go I don’t want to wait where they’re tempting fate (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I don’t want to rhyme where to rhyme is a crime (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I don’t trust the bus cause there’s lots of fuss (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) I don’t think it’s fair something’s in the air (it could happen to you, it could happen to you) Chorus. I’m a spazzmatazz and I know what I know I’m a spazzmatazz and I go where I go I’m a spazzmatazz and I think I am free I’m a spazzmatazz and I dream of the sea (c) 2020 Keith Walsh

Trying hard with all these thoughts to feel the same Every time I think of it, the whisper of her name Sunshine light on everything, it’s lovely here Running through the flower fields worries disappear It’s never quite the same The memories of her game. Birds and believers, it’s very plain to see All her achievements have made a convert out of me. I step into the light to take a photograph Everything about it is her autograph If we both should stay here for a little while It would all be worth it just to see you smile Earth and Sky convey All she wants to say Birds and believers, it’s very plain to see All her achievements have made a convert out of me. All I need are God and Nature All I need are God and Nature All I need are God and Nature All I need is you. Birds and believers, it’s very plain to see All her achievements have made a convert out of me. Birds and believers, it’s very plain to see All her achievements have made a convert out of me. © Keith Walsh

brick bosso Los Angeles, California

I've been playing music on keyboards ever since "The Entertainer" by Scott Joplin wriggled its way into my brain, thanks to the movie "The Sting." In addition to piano, I create sounds on a variety of synths and guitars. Not to mention my plaintive voice! ... more
