THE UNFINISHED KING

This song was created for Game of Bands round 223 : "Music Imitates Art"

Lyrics:

Art: GRILLO

Jean-Michel Basquiat

I am sure I am king / I'm sure that I am something
Rule between the lines / Who knows what is mine
Stare into my eyes
I'm staring into you
I can see your soul
Can you see mine too?

Tell me what you see
Anything I could, I could, that I could
Anything, anything that I could be

I don't know who I am
But I don't need a plan
To figure it out

Cause whatever I do
What's good enough for me is good enough for you
Whoever it is inside my head
Is someone who'd do everything I did
And say everything I said

[That's a lot of words. Let's leave the solo bit alone and rock out.]

I am sure I am king / My domain is inside my skin
No power over me / Will stop me from being free
I know my own soul / Unbroken pure and whole
What I'll come to be / In time, I'm sure, I'll see
[Exit]
