our band has decided to start writing songs and we have pretty music down. but when it comes to writing lyrics our minds just go blank.
were looking for a good method of writing lyrics if anybody has one
You'd be better off asking in the S&L Techniques section. I try to write what I feel strongly about, but I generally fail.
When your inspired, and only when, just write down key words that do well to express the idea your trying to get across. Then come up with the inbetween words to connect these ideas, works for me everytime.

Theory is descriptive, not prescriptive.

theory states 1+1=2 sometimes in music 1+1=3.
