about

Robert Scott King Los Angeles, California

I'm a BMI affiliated singer-songwriter based in Southern California. My past musical experiences include playing the local club circuit, receiving airplay on commercial/college radio, and working as a music therapist.

My music can be heard on several networks (e.g., Showtime, MTV, Discovery), in advertising spots (e.g., CIGNA "Go You" campaign), and in some radio markets (Germany, France, Spain).

Track Name: Airwaves
Taking to the airwaves - Any way the wind blows
Information highway - Tune in for the repose

I need a reason, some little reason to live (I’ll take it from the airwaves)
I need a reason, some little reason to give (I need it from the airwaves)

Scanning through the airwaves - Radio’s in freak form
Talk radio creeps in - Sound bites for the newborns

I need a reason, some little reason to live (I’ll take it from the airwaves)
I need a reason, some little reason to give (I need it from the airwaves)

This shaky little soundtrack we live, we live
Sounds of treason - Broadcast for the sponsors that give, and give

Listen through the airwaves - Nothing left to ride on
Medium is breaking - Transmission dropped off

I need a reason, some little reason to live (I’ll take it from the airwaves)
I need a reason, some little reason to give (I need it from the airwaves)
Track Name: Skin
Release me from this body - Free me from bone and skin
Foreclose upon this body - Leave behind the bone and skin
Wanting separation from the vessel that they brought me in
Stranded in this world - Trapped inside this shell of skin

I want some separation - Free from where the flesh begins
I need some separation - Undo the form I’m cast within
Wanting separation from the vessel that they brought me in
Stranded in this world - Trapped inside this shell of skin

It feels so far from home - It seems to be a temporary zone
I’m light-years from my home - It seems to be a temporary zone

I feel so far from home - It seems to be a temporary zone
So many light-years from my home - It seems to be a temporary zone
Track Name: In This Town
Making all your plans - In this town (Where you stake your claim)
I can barely breathe - In this town

We should go - Break from the fate that overtakes us
If we could leave right now - Go where we won’t be faceless

Nothing seems quite right - About this town (No one’s life’s their own)
I’ll pack my dreams and stray - From this town

We should go - Break from the fate that overtakes us
If we could leave right now - Go to where we won’t be faceless

Dreaming to be saved - From this town (To slowly be re-born)
The life I really crave is gone - From this town

We should go right now - Break from the fate that overtakes us
If we could leave right now - Go to where we won’t be faceless
We should leave now - Start over, leave what’s tasteless
We should go now - Move on to what awakes us

We should go now… If we can leave…
Track Name: Further Into Your Wardrobe
No one dares to call you out, and no one knows what you’re about inside
The winds no longer at your back, your sanity’s under attack - so hide

You’ve crossed that line - your future’s gone sublime
As you stand accused - you blow a fuse to survive
That’s how we roll - and that’s how we are

Look inside my closet please, come watch me work this costume tease - for you
Displayed inside your gallery, made-up to be what you believed - was true

You’re crossed that line - your future’s gone sublime
As you stand accused - you’ll blow a fuse to survive

Entranced by your wardrobe needs - sample all this foolish greed
Take the style mavens here in stride
I try to follow where it leads - I'm in too deep to care or dream
Everyone is wearing-out some lie


No one dares to call you out, and no one knows what you’re about inside
The winds no longer at your back, your sanity’s under attack - so hide

You’ve crossed that line - your future’s gone sublime
As you stand accused - you blow a fuse to survive
That’s how we roll - and that’s how we are

That’s how we roll - and that’s how we are
Entranced by your wardrobe needs - sample all this foolish greed
Take the style mavens here in stride
I try to follow where it leads - I'm in too deep to care or dream
Everyone is wearing-out some lie

That’s just how we roll - that’s just how we are
Track Name: The Company You Keep
Steal away, steal away, retreat
The company you keep from me - Slowly will deceive
Peel away, start to peel away - Repeat
Review the faces that you’ll need to please - The company you keep

I feel so unsure - Don’t want to blend/bend no more
I feel too obscure - Unlisted friends to care for

Feel the heat, the comfort that you seek
These are the people that you’ll need to greet, the company you keep
On your mark, your comrade’s so discrete
The strangers that you strive to meet - The company you keep

I feel so unsure - Don’t want to blend/bend no more
I feel too obscure - Unlisted friends to care for

Keep them near - All those enemies - Close and dear - All your enemies
Track Name: Growing Old Disgracefully
Do you live for some kid - Do you live for yourself?
It’s time you act like you're somebody else - retool
You’re hardly awake - Failed at amusing yourself
You’re stroking along for a piece of the wealth

Once you gave up trying - Nurture traps maligned your style

Right now - The feeling starts to hit you
It won’t stop - It’s strong enough to bleed through

You're hoping to raise them to be what you’re not
Realize their needs won’t fit into your plot (Don’t you? - It makes you more cynical)
Blame your condition on everyone else
Living to tease what’s left of yourself

Once you gave up trying - Bottle bliss sustained your style

Right now - The feeling starts to hit you
It won’t stop - It’s strong enough to bleed through

Right now - There’s opportunity that’s allowed

Right now - The feeling starts to hit you
It won’t stop - It’s strong enough to bleed through
Track Name: Last of the Profiteers
No corporate angel’s gonna’ rescue me
Downloading vandals sank their whole regime

The prize I chase is not about the money - Passion crushed by the finance crowd
Art as bait - The gravy train is breaking down

Act live like they hold an advantage in what they bring
All this middle-men madness is such a dirty deed

The prize I chase is not about the money - Passion crushed by the finance crowd
Art as bait - The gravy train is breaking down

Lost in the feel - Savor the meal - Taken for granted
Lost to the feel - Spoil the deal - Everything's slanted

The prize I chase is not about the money - Passion crushed by the finance crowd
Art as bait - The gravy train is breaking down

Don’t need no scoundrels to salvage me
Exploited angels shook down an industry

The prize I chase is not about the money - Passion’s crushed by the finance crowd
Art is bait - Enthusiasm not aroused
This prize I chase - Got shadowed by the money - Passion’s lost in a finance cloud
If art is bait - The gravy train is breaking down

Lost in the feel - Savor the meal - Taken for granted
Lost to the feel - Spoil the deal - Obstacles planted
Losing what’s real - Foil the deal - Taken for granted
Savor what’s real - Gravy the deal - Everyone’s slanted
