have you guys ever done it?
and if so, how well did it work out in the final product?
i've been thinking about recycling some old lyrics that i never used, and just splicing them into a new song, but i'm not quite sure how well it's worked out.
i like to drink blood...
and smoke the weed!

Yeah I did it for one of my latest songs, took the verses from one song and spliced them into the chorus of another. It worked rather well. You have to check if the lyrics actually fit/compliment each other - they should have at least somewhat similar themes. It's always better having a song writing partner who isn't afraid to say "it's shit m8"

I've done it. Kind of fun to do when you had one context for a lyric, and then change it up. Originally, one of my songs was going to be kind of electronic/ambient, and it ended up being the same lyrics over a more metal-oriented track, and I found it worked a lot better!
I can't help wondering things like "What's Bob Dylan doing now? Is he at home, eating a big bowl of corn flakes just like I will, later on when I return back home?"
