Lyrics:
[intro]
[verse1]
I'm feeling inspired but my pen
won't touch the paper and I know
you want to hear a new song from me.
I don't think I can help you out
'cause I don't know what to write about.
I know that sounds disappointing.

[chorus]
My writing has been tamed
Never thought I'd be so ashamed
I just need to get something down.
I tried to write a new song for you
but my mind has been torn in two.
Now I just need to write something down.

[verse2]
As I sit here, trying to think
my mind keeps drawing a blank
and the clock keeps turning.
My head must be fading out
'cause I don't know what to write about.
Maybe you can help me.

[chorus]

[bridge - pt. 1]
The only inspiration I can think of right now
Is you
My own imagination is failing me now
It's true
[bridge - pt. 2]
I just need one line
To break me free this time
Just make me feel alive

[chorus] (first 3 lines clean, last 3 distorted)
[chorus]


Hopefully it's understandable as to how I play it. Constructive critiques are welcome, as always.
