    "Where'd you get that example?"

    go through a painful break up with your girlfriend, stop talking to your friends, and do nothing but sit around your place and woodshed.




    worked for me.

    Is he looking for smut? I'd give you a couple good sites but Talkbass doesn't permit it.

    Risin' up, back on the street
    Did my time, took my chances
    Went the distance, now I'm back on my feet
    Just a man and his will to survive

    So many times, it happens too fast
    You change your passion for glory
    Don't lose your grip on the dreams of the past
    You must fight just to keep them alive

    It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
    Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
    And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

    Face to face, out in the heat
    Hangin' tough, stayin' hungry
    They stack the odds 'til we take to the street
    For we kill with the skill to survive

    It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
    Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
    And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

    Risin' up, straight to the top
    Have the guts, got the glory
    Went the distance, now I'm not gonna stop
    Just a man and his will to survive

    It's the eye of the tiger, it's the cream of the fight
    Risin' up to the challenge of our rival
    And the last known survivor stalks his prey in the night
    And he's watchin' us all in the eye of the tiger

    The eye of the tiger...

    As Andy Summer once said:

    I was blue and lonely, and I couldn't sleep a wink,
    And I could only get inconscient, if I'd had to much to drink.

    I NEEDED INSPIRATION, a brand new start in life.
    Somewhere to place affection, but I didn't want a wife.

    And then by chance I saw, in a special magasine,
    And ad that was unusual, the like, I'd never seen.

    "Experience something different, with our new imported toy.
    She's loving, warm, inflattable, and a guarantee of joy."

    She came all wrapped in cardboard, all pink and shrivelled down.
    A breath of air was all she needed, to make her lose that frown.

    I took her to the bedroom, and pumped her with some life,
    And later, in a moment, that girl became my wife.

    So I sit her in the corner, and sometimes stroke her hair,
    And when I'm feeling naughty, I blows 'er up with air.

    She's cuddly and she's bouncy, she's like a rubber ball,
    I bounce her in the kitchen, and I bounce her in the hall.

    And now my life is different, since Sally came my way,
    I wake up in the morning, and have her, on a tray.

    She's everything they said she'd be, and I wear a permanent grin,
    And I only have to worry, in case my girl wears thin...





    ...





    I not only need inspiration, but a life.

    Edit: I didn't know that Matt had beat me to the punch by writtin some lyrics... well, at least I know I typed the whole thing myself. That alone should be enought to inspire anyone.

    want inspiration?

    drive from wherever you live to vegas doing over 100mph the whole way, bring a suitcase full of a large amount of every known drug, tear up the town, the car and the people, and leave after having broken any number of laws.
