Alright, well here's the deal.....I've been part of a punk "band" for quite some time. (Havent actually performed as of yet) We just write a few songs here and there and get together to play 'em. It's just that whenever I write a song, the actual musical part turns out just fine but I can NEVER write lyrics for them....They always either just dont fit to the song, dont fit the style, or I just can't write at all for some reason : /
Anyone else seem to have been endlessly stuck working with lyrics? Any advice? I REALLY need help.

(I know this should probably go in the lyrics forum, but to be honest, I'd rather hear from The Pit )

At first I thought this thread was going to be about growling singers that just go "GRRWRWAARRRRARRRR", but the thread title confused me.

Anyways, you have to think about it, ask anyone else in the band if they can come up with lyrics, you can fit the lyrics to the song, it's just a matter of inspiration.

Try and get inspiration from somewhere. Use words that others musos/poets have used and make them mean something to yourself. Melody > Lyrics.

Good Guitars
Good Pedals
Good Amps

That is all.

just find some inspiration, and go fit stuff in. its sometimes easier to get lyrics before a song and then work them around it too.
pay me the same amount and ill give you better head than an amp ever could.

Do what countless other bands do and make your lyrics undiscernable. That way, no one will be able to hear/care about your lyrics that are ****ty/make no sense.
