Hi, everyone!
We searching for lyrics writer (with unusual lyric) for our new album.
We already have tracks with the ready tunes and we searching someone who can create texts for these tunes.
Here is the page of our band (to understand  that kind of music we are):
https://soundcloud.com/jabberheads

It would be great to find someone for collaboration!

I went and listened.  Was impressed with the musicianship and vocals on all the songs I listened to. 

I'm a little confused.  Are those all covers?  If not, then I'm wondering what's wrong with the lyrics.  Can't find any real need for a different lyricist (unless they are all covers.) 

Anyway. . . you are welcome to visit my site and take a listen to see what kind of lyrics I write.  If you like the way I write lyrics, I have literally hundreds of near complete lyric ideas that could be adapted to a piece of music. . . and have had real good results writing lyrics to existing music to a concept or idea or title specified by the writer of the musical accompaniment.  Be happy to help on a song or two on a limited basis. 

I don't care about anything except song credit.  Not worried about being paid, and not worried about ownership of the song.  I only want to be included as AN author of the lyrics if you use them.  Not an owner. . . just an author. 

The caveat is that I won't be "assigned" a piece of music.  I'll only participate on a song where the music inspires and thrills me. 

So anyway. . . if anything is interesting to you, let me know.  The songs on my site are the tip of the iceberg.  I have lots more -- some of them better ideas than many of the songs on the site.

Here ya go:

"The Plurality of Why: Dancing In The Almost Dark"


I find myself a long long way away from where I might have been
Find myself enraptured by my reflection in the mirror, I don't see me
Just a scant reflection of heartbreak in the longing for younger days
Toiling in obscurity
Banging away for eternity

I cried an hour or so not that long ago
I can't focus well enought to even start to let gush what I keep trapped inside
A pencil-mark of oppression on my writing pad
Something erasable to whisk off and try to forget when the sadness finally goes away
It may at some point
Most likely not today...

Off and On, the reflection of a ripple caused by a swan churning in a pond
Lights go dim, then brighten up a little bit, gotta begin again
Maybe I'll start with a prayer
To begin to erase any trace of the sorrow ingrained within
Try to scratch off the halo marks and reinvent the way I feel
head asunder, splitting off the languid tortured shield
Tryna find a way to make the colors look vibrant again
An image that has a taste, so real it can be
If I could erase the expired segments of me
I'm looking for an antidote to the poisoning inside
Tryna take a pause before stepping against the rolling of the tide

With the possible exception of a scant few moments in my time
I've been too low, not really built up enought karma to take a slide on the wild side
I fear I'll loose my grip at the wrong moment and be looking at the prospect of repeating a grade
A grade of tolerant mediocrity is how it is being conveyed
I am cheerful in a wishy-washy way
I don't fully believe in ascension or trust in the rising of a phoenix
without a good degree of luck and love
it'll inevitably turn out less than great
which to me equals a total bust

I dreamt of you and who I wanted you to be
I wasn't far off
as you are now
But I'm lonesome and serene, resigned to mediocrity in the first degree
I need to fly
I need to stop hesitating
I need to stop asking questions, why?
It takes a lot of energy to ressurect even a moment from the days that used to be
It takes a lot of heart to be unswayed by the longing for happiness in perpetuity
I think I may regain my lost spark
everybody has down moods
even when they are dancing
dancing with a newly lit purpose
dancing in the almost dark
