The singer in my band and I disagree on this. He believes in writing the vocal part first, whereas I believe the vocal melody should be molded to the lyrics. I feel that having a predetermined vocal melody really limits the creative muscle when it comes to writing the lyrics, having to mold them to a syllable count.

Your thread was closed because it says quite clearly (If you had read it) in the FAQ

This forum is for original work only.
This is not the place to ask for help on how to write lyrics; we have a large ?Lyrics Tips? thread for that. No ?Do you write lyrics or music first?? threads, no ?Who is your favorite lyricist?? threads, no ?Help me put music to this? threads. This is not the place. Those threads will immediately be closed. If you?re unsure as to where to put a thread, please PM a mod of this forum (like myself) and we?ll be happy to help.

Filth, pure filth... That's what you are.
