Lyric writing contest
    #4529918 - 08/13/05 01:13 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

My band is lacking a few songs' worth of lyrics for our first release. I wanted to try something new and get some of you beautiful people at the shroomery to help me out. Does anyone have any lyrics they'd like to give me/write me? If we get famous from your song(don't count on it) I'll be sure to give the winner credit.


The winner gets a song recorded with their lyrics.


Hurry up, the faster we get lyrics the faster we can pick a winner and finish our recordings!

Write your own lyrics. Whats the point of creating art if it's not your own.

money / work

besides, the music itself is art, especially if they use the lyrics well.

should a musician create all of his instruments as well for it to be art?

Your gonna have a very hard time with this friend

I mean............... like anyone is gonna buy into the "I promise" stuff ? You probably do mean what you say........really I mean it.

Look I was involved in the music writing business for a few years. You need to write your own stuff. If you have trouble then there are a ton of books that can teach you different writing styles.

If you use someone else stuff and it works you will never truly be on your own. You will be needing someone to give you what you need. etc....


Trust me you need to write your own stuff. You can do it.

Write a song about how much writing lyrics suck that would be a very easy place to start.

Remember that lyrics need to have a flow............. a steady cadence..........A certain feeling...........Something that makes a person think............. So how do I do that ?


Well you have to start writing EVERYDAY.......... Write 200 sucky ass songs until you get 1 good one. Then you will write 20 suckys songs until you write 4 good ones. Then you write 2 sucky songs until you write 20 good songs..... Understand ?

Have the belief in yourself that you can write what is in your heart. Get some education on writing Lyrics and just DO IT

I'm too busy to write.


Looks like I'll have to rip off other internet poets.

Here is something I wrote the other day. It has, well, a lot of meaning to it. Silly though the rhyming may be.

In the avatar of atavism
added at the start, adam isn't
so how has cobalt seized the art?
it's because she sees in the dark.

I'm teething patterns in the sun,
yet in the Irony is the one
my frustration has overcome
the south asians, her smoking gun
and now cetaceans have begun...

My own entities fear that we are dead
as in the sea, the inner ear is retarded
titus disease is an eerie heart attack
my first seether was easiest, in syntax...


just so you don't think it is a bunch of random rhyming stupidity:

yet in the Irony is the one

Irony = Iron E.
the Iron E would be the frequency of repititions that you would hear comeing from a boat motor underwater. "the one" is supposed to be a phoenetic play on sound. Maybe it should be repeated within the song? the one, the one, the one... THUH THUM, THUH THUM, THUH THUM... (sounds like a dual stroke motor underwater, which is the "Iron E"). An E note, as the first and last note on a guitar, being the most relevent (yes, tuning changes all that). Iron as the last of the solar-fusion created elements on the periodic table (cobalt is the first 'artificial' element) ... if you are a dolphin this makes sense, I hope... How do humans learn to use their voices? Messing around with their mouths within the womb, in relation the the sound of the mothers heart. Perpetually improvising overtop of the constant dual stroke sound of a heart.

The song is about 'dolphins', as well as a few other things.

terror, language aquisition, symetry, muse-ic. The idiocy of love, as with most songs.


--------------------
Do not despair, said the mystery. You will always have a friend in me. Untill the day you break my code. Then I will be gone, and you are free...
to manifest another.
