Lyrics

The Champion

Written By: Robert Lee Whitefield

The Champion
from In Search of the Mysterious Mister Pigg Album - 2003

I am the Champion...hero of all man
I am the super one that saves you again and again
I am an alien born into your lab
You don't know who I am
because I ran....

I want a family home
a wife and kids
But I can never have these things...
all alone, I'm all alone...

I am the Champion... hero perfect
you killed my brothers for food but I am divine
You seek to hunt me down - because I ran
I am your Champion for all of time

Spooky Song (the story of Ed and Gordon)

The Spooky Song (the story of Ed and Gordon)

Here I am, just too far away
To try and get back where I belong

Through a fog I can barely see
My wife, my house...my dogs

I've got to get home now
Things are playing with my head
Something told me I was dead...

Am I dreaming, or did I see?
A lone figure by the road
I stop the car to see what she needs
I look, I'm just alone

I've got to get home now
Things are playing with my head
A voice told me I was dead...

It's so strange, I seem to be fading away
Like the end of a song
Fell aslepp at that steering wheel
A crash a noise then I'm gone

I've got to get home now
Things are playing with my head
Voices keep telling me that I'm dead...

AIR

By Robert Lee Whitefield

In the air that we breathe
You can sense all the past

If you really could see with me
To live is to last

CH:
If you’d only see
How they float right through my head

Faces that pass
In life had their chance

They grow in my head
They’ll never be dead

They’re the air that we breathe
In a world that’s all their own

They’re the air that we breathe
Through us they atone

Verse
Than you really would mean
Every word you have said

If you only would look
And stare in the darkness

CH:
And the first step is to love
Then the next one you do

Breathe in the air
No one will care
Breathe in the air

Everyone shares

What in the air that we breathe
And you know what I will say

And the time has really come
When you have to you move

Breathe in the air, no one will care
Breathe in the air; it’s what we all share

It is the that we breathe
All the lives that you meet

It’s the air that you breathe
And you sink back in retreat

As you run and hide
You still breathe in their air
