    My lyrics suck. I'm going to get Brendan to write all my lyrics from now on.

    Best thing I have ever came up with.

    Wright lyrics is just like any other body function you have to relax and just let it follow.

    I don't plan it,
    it just happens,
    it helps to be pissed off
    but that's just me

    Don't go there :spit:
     
  9. Bad luck with the ladies is always a strong songwriting catalyst for me. Boredom and general dissatisfaction with life also work...I don't think I've written any happy songs.

    As you might expect, my songs are kind of emo, so you can probably disregard my advice completely, Matt :smug:

    Imagination my friend.

    Also King,Straub etc.

    I wrote a song which was something like:-

    'Man's penace for his misdeeds...'

    Only our vocalist-this rap guy can't say penace and says pen*s.

    You don't have to directly relate it to a friend or yourself but use the idea and elaborate and let imagination do the rest.
