My Dad was a jazz bassist and a master of music theory. I have been playing different instruments since before I could walk. Pretty much everything but horns. Piano was the first instrument I played, followed by violin(top seat within a year), cello(top string even faster), and then guitar, bass and drums. I write all my own songs/lyrics & music. I love every type of Music, except Country.

BoredomLyrics Boredom Creeping up, like a stalker in the dark Time ticks away, and tears you apart Lying in a trance, everything's numb Useless to the world, life's no fun Boredom, everything's the same Boredom, Nothing seems to change I'm goin insane Can't sleep, can't think, sick of my life Trapped in my mind, no will to fight Hour after hour, same thing again I need change, this shit has got to end Nothing to do because my life's so plain Day after day my life is real lame All I do is just sit and complain Even though I am to blame
HumanityTake a look into the eyes Of a man with no soul Scars dictate his story Life has taken it's toll All my emotions are changing Life can really seem bleak Nothing is true but sadness All my Strengths make me weak Life it can be so strange Your either up or your down Kicking you in the face Fucking you all around Some people seem so nice Twisting the knife in your back Everyone knows your fake Just fucking drop the act Thriving on greed and misery But I've got nothing to give Fuck you and your Kind It's no way to live My website http://www.daveerving.com/ My Poetry http://allpoetry.com/Dave_Erving My artwork http://daveerving.deviantart.com/gall...

Population ControlA new song finished January 3, 2017. First Song of 2017, 1st song in over a YEAR!!! All music & Lyrics by Dave Erving. All Instruments played(drum track EzDrummer2) and produced by Dave Erving... ENJOY!!! Overpopulation the world can't survive Looking for solutions we're all gonna die Disease & Famine, disasters & death Waiting for the day when there's nothing left Natural disasters thousands will die The world's population continues to thrive Consuming resources, destroying the land Earth's worst enemy has always been man Technical breakthrough, life continues to expand Extinctions upon us, unless there's a plan Will there be a future, how long can we last Death & destruction, the die has been cast We can't look back, cause yesterday's gone Choices we made, they all seem wrong Everyone's talking, but nothing gets done The wars being waged, nobody has won We risen to a level, we all must fall The warnings were there, but nobody saw We're gonna be punished, just give it time Humanity's gone, we crossed the line My website http://www.daveerving.com/ My Poetry http://allpoetry.com/Dave_Erving My artwork http://daveerving.deviantart.com/gall...

Up in Flames
Up in FlamesWritten Dec. 3, 2015 The world's gone crazy, everyone's at risk Fighting & killing, so much hatred exist Crazy ideas, blame & regret We don't agree, lets kill the rest Gun control, lets enforce more laws Protect our rights, we must stand tall Back & Forth, time to decide Either way, people will die Spend more money, cause nobody cares Live life to the fullest, we're not prepared Time's against us,we'll repeat the past This kind of greed will never last Hatred & Pain, No more shame The world is FUCKED, we're all insane Don't point fingers, we're all to blame Watch the world, go up in flames
Tick TockWritten Dec 1, 2015 Lyrics go forward then back Time ticks away all the seconds of our life The past is behind us and the future's a fight They're brought together by what we decide Rewards and regrets seem to combine Everyday is different, but mainly the same Growing older your suppose to change Live like a citizen make sure your that your plain Living by the rules, there is nothing to gain People can't control the lies they create Some don't believe and some don't relate Many carry guilt, such a heavy weight Some can't live with the choices they make
20 Years Down
20 Years DownWritten Nov. 28, 2015 In my life I didn't care about tomorrow 20 years down and I've lost my soul to the sorrow Memories consumed to the madness Life has passed, I'm only left with sadness(2nd Chorus) It's hard to think about a future If you can't even make it today Nobody really cares until it's over Cause time will fade away So many mistakes I got to keep on living All of my dreams are crushed and gone I don't know what the fuck went wrong Everyday it gets harder just to carry on Everyone tells me I just have to follow my heart Thrown into a world, just to be torn apart Nobody care, nobody wants to listen I've got no soul, will my life be forgiven
01 - Dave Erving - Fighting For Life
01 - Dave Erving - Fighting For LifeWritten Nov. 26, 2015 Fighting for life at the end of the rope Nothing to lose, you've got no hope You don't fit in, you don't belong No one will miss you when you are gone You lived your life without having a care Robbing and stealing causing despair You always take, nothing to give Now you'll die the way you lived You knew life would get you some day With all the people that you betrayed Now its too late, too late for remorse Fate caught up and taken its course
Society's WasteWritten Nov 23, 2015 Societies Waste Look at the old man in the street bumming change One day could I be the same? Do you think he cares, who does he blame? Does he even feel the shame? Chorus: Who's to say if I'll be that way Sleeping above the subway grate Is this something I'll have to face? Will I be societies waste? Look at the old man bumming change in the street One day could this happen to me? Did he take a chance on a dream? What the hell forced him to the street? Look at the past and what he was Now you only see what he has become Nothing quit like when he was young Inspiration left him a bum? Look at me, look at my life Tell me do you think its right? One day will I see through his eyes? What does it take to give up on life?
How Quickly We Fall
How Quickly We FallWritten Nov. 15, 2015 How Quickly We Fall Looking back I can’t believe the life I’ve left behind Expectations and dreams, quickly changed with time The life I wanted was taken away, everything has changed The hardest thing to except, is I’m the only one to blame I know where I went wrong, I can’t explain why Life had the answers, I just had to try I'm finished with it all How quickly we fall It’s been so long and I fallen so far, I’m no longer in control I’ve stared into the face of death, as it ripped into my soul I climbed back up just to lose again, I watch my life unfold I don’t Fucking need your help, or all the lies it holds Desire to live, a passion for life, it all seems fake to me Trapped again in my mind, I will never break free People have tried & tried again, to show me that they care No matter how hard they try, my life will be unfair Tell me what it takes to move on, I’ve heard it all before Give me the skills I need & I’ll destroy my life some more The harder I try to live my life , the more it knocks me down If I don't try change my life, they'll throw me in the ground
Political AgendaWritten Nov. 10, 2015 Political Agenda Government, Politics, it's all about control "We the people" watch America as it's sold Choosing a side, time to decide, left or the Right? What are the issues, do you care, about the fight? Abortion, Gay marriage, where do you stand? Presidential Candidates, laying out their plan Make a difference, do what you can, the future’s at stake Our Nation has been the land where dreams are made Chorus: The rise and fall, our Nation won't last Out of time, we're sinking real fast Freedom once stood for liberty The Country's lost, to you and me Agenda speaks, money talks, in a land where morals cost No ones free until we fight, for our freedom, for our rights We must unite & take a stand, fight against the controling hand It's time to act, and to live again, change the world from how it's been All is lost, the Nation is weak, take away the freedoms we seek We don't care, won't effect us, lives are gone, there's no one to trust It starts by turning your back, forgive the madness, clouding the facts Everyone thinks life is just fine, before you know it our NATION has DIED
JunkyWritten Nov. 7 2015 Junky Boarded up buildings plague these streets Old crackhouses have been put to sleep Girls on the corner pulling their tricks Junkies come and go looking for a fix This block gets busted, move to the next Pushing their product, you want the best Police on your ass and as your copping more shit You'd rather be dead then in jail or sick The lucky ones die, cause the hell never ends You lose all you have, you lose all your friends Even if your clean, people can't forgive Sobriety makes it harder to live Chorus: Junkies all once had normal lives Addicted, many reasons why No more pain, shame and misery No hope, no life, friends or family You've got to push on no matter how bad Anything is better than the life you had Clean for a while, the pain's gonna stay The hell never ends and the regrets don't fade Boredom sets in, nothing feels right Building back trust is an everyday fight Temptations of life get harder to face Finally give in to that warm embrace
Choatic JourneyAnother new song made Nov. 5, 2015 Chaotic Journey As I trudge through the valley of Death This torch is my only light Chills run down my spine Darkness is all that's in sight As I make my way, I can feel the eyes Penatrate my soul Looking around, I sense a feeling That makes my blood run cold I turn to see, but is it just me? Is something testing my sanity What will I find in this dismal land A darkness for all eternity I grasp onto life I release my final breath Hell has come for me Now I face my DEATH
External StayWritten Oct. 18, 2015 Eternal Stay Brains splattered on the wall, gun falls to the ground Lifeless body on the floor, nerves twitching all around A puddle of blood trickles from your head, puss drips from your skin Rotting corpse as your flesh decays, rigor mortise has set in Lying on the carving table, limbs dangle from above Your body's just a piece of meat, say goodbye to all you love Blood splatter on your face, puss drips from your eyes Worthless & weak, death you seek, fulfill your wasted life Now you in the funeral home, lying in the casket The banner reads "Rest in Peace", across the flower basket Your family starts to mourn, others just weep & cry Staring at your lifeless body, "God please tell me why?" The priest reads your last rights You gave in, no will to fight Sealing the box, fill in the grave This is it Eternal stay
Destinywritten Oct. 30, 2015 Destiny Staring out in the distance, I think of what could be Is there a point to the madness, what's our destiny? Normal life seems so strange, the same thing everyday People don't even notice, their dreams start to fade Conforming to a system, designed for us to fail Just name your price, everything's for sale Being put down for having our morals and beliefs I'm sick of all the bullshit, let others be deceived I remember in my past, when the future looked so bright That time is behind me now I've burned out the light Even though I'm expected to look back in shame If I had to do it all again, I think it would be the same Regrets are part of life, we must learn from our mistakes Even though we want it all, there must be give and take Shit happens to everyone, many just think it's fate It either makes your life or you fucking break
Breaking FreeSomething I threw together on a Sunday(Oct. 11 ,2015) Breaking Free What the fuck do you want from me I'm not your hired help Your always coming down on me Only thinking about yourself Chorus: Pushing down on me You think I can't see What your doing to me Now I'm breaking free It doesn't matter how much I do You're always expecting more Trying so hard to control my life I can't take it anymore The life I lived was once my own You've smashed all my dreams I barely exist, I can't live like this Nothing is what it seems
Dave Erving - Sacrifice
Dave Erving - SacrificeI just sat down today (Oct. 4 2015)& wrote this whole thing from scratch. It's been too long since I had done ANY MUSIC. ENJOY Sacrifice I feel forsaken, it's not a lie Over and over, I ask myself why Do I let this shit into my life In the end I have to sacrifice Chorus: Another part of what I believe All the things I once achieved Taken away, there's nothing left of me Losing control of my sanity Maybe it's all just in my head Insanity & lies it's fed Analyze every word that's said Feeling inside I'll soon be DEAD Tell me now what is the truth Is it all lies. where's the proof Everyone knows what to do Till your mind consumes YOU

Funky FreakThis is a song I just started working on. It's just a rough cut of the drums and basically a bass line(or two). It's a work in progress. I just started working with digital music about 6months ago, so this is really raw.
BelieveBelieve I was always taught to stand, for what I believe You will be judged for your actions & your deeds Always try to do what's moral and what's right Don't be afraid to push back, take on the fight Chorus: Believe in Yourself, Believe in Your Dreams You're gonna fucked up, It's just reality You gotta face life, You gotta stay strong It's gonna take time, you just have to believe Many will try to oppose, tell you that you're wrong They alway make you feel, like you don't belong You've got to find your way, hold your head up high Don't be trapped by the bullshit, and their lies You will find in life, you have walk away They stab you in the back, lost and betrayed Consumed by their hate, they love your misery Living off your pain, fueled by jealousy
