OK. My initial post scored absolutely zero response. So back to the usual approach... A strong set of lyrics can do magic to a song: exactly what I'm looking for. An epic message, written on the notes of the vocal melody. I'd like to challenge you to come up with your best lines ever. The subject is entirely up to you. It has only got to be top notch poetry, respecting the vocal guide. The structure is quite simple: verse 1-chorus1-verse 2-chorus2-bridge-chorus1-verse 3. All starting at 0:56. Seps and beds are all there. Are you in?

Idea:"Gravity". My girlfriend's 22y/o son suffered a nervous breakdown while living with us in Arizona. Scary stuff. Tried to put myself into his head. Hope I'm following the right sound. This is rough, but want to be sure I have this right. © 2018 John Heavern S-12/9/12, Gravity The weight of the world is enveloping me, darkness polluting tomorrows I see. Tightening chains, buckling brain, gravity binds at incredible speed. Ch) Pressures abound, apathy found, emptiness bleeds into sorrows I drown.            Gravity preys, clarity fades, spiraling down a malevolent maze.            Gravity passing a tolerant phase, gaining momentum in worrisome ways.            Erratic impressions bury my soul, sinking me deeper, devoid of control. Crumbling care, sunken despair, gravity waits to devour me whole. Ch) Pressures abound, apathy found, emptiness bleeds into sorrows I drown.            Gravity preys, clarity fades, spiraling down a malevolent maze. Gravity pulling me into the haze, spinning me ´round with my future ablaze. Conflicting emotions filling my plate, heart becomes heavy, depressions inflate. Mentally mobbed, reasoning robbed, gravity swelling in thoughts I create.   Br) Nothing to say, nothing to do,           gravity altering practical view.     Dreams I envisioned falling from grace,           forces of gravity hollow my face. Ch) Pressures abound, apathy found, emptiness bleeds into sorrows I drown.            Gravity preys, clarity fades, spiraling down a malevolent maze.            Gravity winning the game that it plays, forcing me down as my sanity str

in the chorus, I would give more thrust with the second guitar (chords)
