I have written many songs over the years, and I would to write a long, Dream Theater esque epic song like say In The Presence Of Enemies or Octavarium. But I'm having problems thinking of a story for my song to tell.

Any ideas/ways to collect ideas for these sorts of songs?

Take a long walk in the woods. That should do it.

Broad metaphor, allegory, general-spectrum allusion..

Collect ideas that really get to you.

I, for example, would consider the total annihilation of the human race a Good Thing, so i'm planning on doing a concept album someday around the themes of plague, war, famine and death.
