I usually just write poetry and I have a hard time converting it to songs so I changed approach and through this together quickly today when I was on the metro. I focussed on keeping it lyrically simple and thinking how it would sound in song. Im not sure if I like it yet and will probably change a lot of it still so please criticise, I can take it I guess it will be a sort of skate punk song.


If Im gonna die today
It wont be running away
My heels will stay
Dug into the ground

Sorry I dont anticipate
Good things to come if I wait
Set the charges, ignite
And never look back

I stick to my guns
Even though theyre pointed at my head
Hands drag me round
But Im fighting every second that Im led
Dreams balled in my fist
Not just left for when Im lying in my bed
To stay and stand defiant
To die free or live trying

Another nine, another five
Another dream, another life
Another day survived
Cant live this way

Craving all the glorious trauma
Not trapped in a walking coma
The world seems slower
With the pedal down

I stick to my guns
Even though theyre pointed at my head
Hands drag me round
But Im fighting every second that Im led
Dreams balled in my fist
Not just left for when Im lying in my bed
To stay and stand defiant
To die free or live trying
