I'll write for a band, or a solo artist, and I'll do it for free. Just give me credit, and I'll be happy :)

I won't be able to actually meet up with the musician, but I will converse with them through email, if that's alright :)

I could probably write better, given a set amount of time, seeing as these songs were written within 2 or 3 minutes, literally, but here are some of my Lyrics:

knowledge

and so i was made,
i was bound together with icing sugar,
then sealed with cement to take away the sensitivity,
and cursed with callous.

and so i was blessed with knowledge,
and a vocabulary,
words to be drawn into tight metal sounds,
falling in love with anecdotes of heroes long past.
and ones that i shall never join.

perhaps you are beauty personified,
but from here on in, i am the devil,
and you mean nothing to me.

Annihilate

We've found the defendant guilty,
And die-hards protest,
Shuffle into a car, tinted windows rolled up,
You know the drill, hope you'll forget the rest.

The sun's just a bullet-hole,
Where God's heart should be,
I never believed in him,
He never gave a shit about me.

Mutual feelings, and a murder weapon,
As scenery changes from bright skies,
To run down Belsens,
I licked your chapped lips and just got lies.
take a chance, you just never know-

This is absolute quality Ziggy. You're going to get a lot of offers if you always write to this standard.

In case you haven't listen to Tom Waits - I've a feeling you're going to get along with his lyrics very well....

Wow, thanks, that really means a lot to me.

Tom Waits is brilliant by the way.

As in, about the actual event, but not actually mentioning it? I'll see what I can do, and tell your friend I'm very sorry.

(Daz,
I wish you strength and all the best)

and Tadpole, great lyrics

Annihilate in particular seems extremely powerful to me
perfect, actually

I think you are a very talented (and original!) lyricist

keep the words coming!

(but my music won't fit, I guess you would want strong guitar sound for that)

nice
