I'm trying to start a band with my friend, and I've been trying my hand at writing lyrics. Would appreciate some opinions on what I got so far.
Also - I am aware that nothing rhymes here, but I was kinda writing the songs with a pattern in my head, so I think I will able to pull them off with it sounding awkward.

„Reverse”

Mankind has taken a step forward.
just to leap back.
From the green and natural,
to the filthy and modern,
yet always primal.

Like animals we fight,
but the prey is success.
In packs, linked together, but disconnected.

[Chorus]
Moving backwards, while moving forward
in a perpetual race to self destruction

We give lives for black gold,
represented by silicon wealth.

A series of signs,
code, that constitutes treasure,
stored on nanomind blades,
intertwined.

[Chorus]
Moving backwards, while moving forward,
in a perpetual race to self destruction.

And any attempt to reverse,
is met with the lust for the red,
or the green.

„Void”
It’s a dark hole,
a pitch black sun,
unrelenting void

It feeds on dream,
and any hope you ever had.

Ignore your intentions,
no matter good or bad,
because they ain’t worth shit here

[Chorus]
Throw away the dreams,
cast aside any hope,
for here,
there’s only darkness to be had

No matter if it’s blood,
or tears that are shed,
you’re already in the downwards spiral.

There are no walls,
no edges to grab onto,
just the circular motion

[Chorus]
Throw away the dreams,
cast aside any hope,
for here,
there’s only darkness to be had

The only way is down,
route triple-six to nothing

[Chorus]
Throw away the dreams,
cast aside any hope,
for here,
there’s only darkness to be had

ONLY DARKNESS TO BE HAD
