Enough's Enough

This is pretty much my first attempt at song writing, so please take it easy. It's intended to have a punky sound to it.

Lyrics:

The words of a generation!
Unheard, across the nation!
We turn out like you expect us to be!
What the hell's wrong with society?!

Covering all the blatant lies!
It's all fun and games until someone dies!
You've ruled over with an iron fist!
We can no longer "cease and desist"!


Enough's enough, yeah we're sick of it!
no more lies, no more bull-shit!
Enough's enough, yeah we're sick of it!
We just can't take. it. an-y-more!

Keeping silent is no longer an option!
Our free will isn't up for adoption!
Everything is not, the way it seems!
Making us harbor your corrupted dreams!

You went and pushed us, over the edge!
but now you're backed up, against a ledge!
The rage is building there's no holding back!
show no mercy, now it's time to attack!


Enough's enough, yeah we're sick of it!
no more lies, no more bull-shit!
Enough's enough yeah we're sick of it!
We just.can't.take.it.an-y-more!

END

Exclamation points are pretty hype, aren't they?

i thought it was pretty good actually. i had all the music and everything in my head after only reading it for a second. very simple rhyme scheme but you were going for punk and punk is never to technical, not that you have to make the rhyming all different and weird anyway. keep it up. looking forward to more from you

That last line reminded me of Gojira


Our free will isn't up for adoption!
This is the only line which I thought was kinda awkward


Otherwise, I guess it's standard punk lyric. Simple, effective, a little cliche perhaps, but you got potential The exclamation marks isn't all that necessary, maybe if you toned down some of them it would actually look better. But I guess you wanted to make a point.

Keep writing! ^^

Gojira is actually one of my favorite bands, so maybe that's where it came from?

If you don't mind me asking, how did you not like that part?

Punk Isn't really my thing but I can see how people would like that. Honestly I think it'd be a better acoustic guitar song but that's my taste. Like that guy said its a little cliche the whole yelling thing but its alright. I can't say if be happy if I wrote it mostly because I hate almost everything I write but its good for a first time.

One thing though, If you're doing a punk song which I guess you are you may want to stick with an a-a rhyming scheme, because the only way that choruse would sound alright is if you slow down, and to my knowledge that isn't very punk. Keep writing (y)

Cool

Sure, well I just didn't like it, I guess I view adoption in a different view. But I get your point though. ^^

Just wrote a new text myself "Can you read?" Check it out if you want too.
