I wrote these lyrics with my best girlfriend (whom I refer to as my little sister). Have a look! We plan on recording the song soon!

Falling Paintings

Verse 1 (Male vocals)
You paint the world in rainbows
When it's filled with broken dreams
You only see the positive things
It's coming apart at the seams

Verse 2 (Male vocals)
You try to fix all your mistakes
But they soon repeat again
Now the stench of failure's hanging
You start to think you'll never win

Pre-chorus (Male/Female vocals)
Now you need a brighter light
Cuz your paintings are in black and white

Chorus 1 (Male/Female vocals)
Watching you make the paintings
Watching life tear them down
You say you've finally had enough
But you just can't make the sound

Verse 3 (Female vocals)
You think the world is yours
But this life has had its toll
Your plans were ruined from the beginning
Now it's time to hit the road

(Pre-chorus, then chorus 1 x2)

Bridge (Male vocals for lines 1 and 3, female for lines 2 and 4)
The canvas is wasted
But there's no more second chances
You've lost your self control
In the heat of all your romances

(Chorus 1)

Chorus 2 (Male vocals only)
Watching you make the paintings
Watching life tear them down
You say you've finally had enough
As you burned it to the ground

What kind of tone is this going to be? I can't really crit you until I know that, because some things I have to say are rather, degrading, so I'm hoping it's thrash/metal based.

More alternative rock than metal but it's gonna be rocking nonetheless. The guitar solo is totally ripping!
