Here's one I know nobody's heard of, because I wrote it and never put it to music.

"Lost In Advice" by Dennis Levesque.    Here's the lyrics:

 

Ground, ground, so much to plow.

Good from bad, discern it how?

Test & study and retest again.

Waste my time 'till I start to spin.

Life, life, with such a high price,

I gotta go and get some advice.

     Seeds, seeds, so many to sow.

     Which will die and which will grow?

     The more I thought, the more I've sinned.

     Should I just cast them into the wind?

     Water, water, but it's it's solid ice.

     I gotta go and get more advice.

Things, things, so many to do.

Should I work till I turn blue?

The more I do, I find open locks.

Did someone open my Pandora's Box?

With advice I will gird.

But, alas, it's only a word.

     Words, words, so many to choose.

     The more I need, the more I peruse.

     The more I peruse, the more I need.

     Should I use words until I bleed?

     **bleep**, **bleep**, this ain't nice.

     Here I am, lost in advice.

Brains, brains, so easy to use.

They're so easy I get confused.

Don't want to reach my point of despair,

And just throw my arms up in the air.

Think I'll go back the way I came,

And try again 'till I'm insane.

     Needs, needs, so many to feed.

     From this work, how can I be freed?

     Don't want fatigue to cause me to sin.

     But maybe later I can try again.

     Please, please, just take me home!

     I am tired, and now I groan.

     I know you love me and you're the best,

     So grant my prayer for a little rest.

Time, time, don't want to think twice.

I'm already lost in advice.

 

Ok, I'd be interested if anyone would want to help me put this to music.
