I don't know, my mind is burned out. I already have enough trouble coming up with lyrics, but now I can't even think of anything to write about.

I don't care about the goverment or girls, or my parents, or anything, so none of those typical ideas will fit. I mean, I could always write about something random, but dont people see through that as lack of creativity? I mean, I was thinking about just writing something about elephants getting tortured, but who wants to hear that?

What are your favorite kind of lyrics to listen to?

Anything about enjoying life e.g The Specials - Enjoy Yourself, RBF - Good Thing and any anti-war song appeals to me.

Try something like What I Got by Sublime, it might be a change of style that creates ideas.

Right about crumbling mountains and link it to how foundations break

write a concept album about bdsm, and how sthe madame is betrayed and arrested but offered her freedom in exchange to testifying against Don Pedro, a pedrophile.
#11
Oh yeah, then write a concept album about doing smack.

It's better to write concept albums as opposed to single songs, because it allows you to milk the subject more.

I'm dead set on writing a song about the 90 percent of the population of kids here that happen to be all scene and trendy. I have such a passionate hate for the fake people in my town and hate them oh so much, so maybe I'll spill out my guts out about them.

I have such a problem writing songs, but then I listen to Out Comes The Wolves and continue to realize that it does not matter what you write about, because half the people listening aren't going to understand what you're saying.

I always respected AFI's old stuff, Havok had the ability to write whatever he wanted to write then just sing it. I mean if you actually look at the lyrics then listen to the songs, he's using the beginning and the end of a word after like pausing. Yeah i know they suck now, but they're a different genre now.

Blink-182 wrote songs about f**king dogs and grandparents and they didn't do too badly for themselves.

I think your problem is you think people actually care about the lyrics.

Do people really care about lyrics?

I personally don't give a shit about what's being sung, 90 percent of the time I have no idea what they're even saying, but I always hear people praising bands lyrical skills, and the fact that I lack all skills, I wonder is it required.

My lyrics are very... surreal at the moment,

unfortunately, im not having any musical ideas, and I dont wanna do another rockabilly number so soon after the advent of glitterbilly kitten.

Write about the difference in smell your bathroom is, before you have the shit and after you have the shit. That would be TrU PuNkZ. Or you could top that and sing about killing cops in Tru PuNkZ leftover crack style...


Pah, thats not punk.

everyone knows that REAL punks shit in their beds

That stuff is awesome.

You have to care about something, or have some kind of passion. Otherwise, you would have no reason to play music. Write about your passion.
