Personally, I'm most inspired after I read poetry and can write it better that way.
I'd add on that finding the rythym of the song is crucial helps to fit the words into context with regard to the song. I used to just hum along and find points for breaks in the song to begin with. After doing that and establishing the melody by matching the pitch of the base note, move along to something you've wrote and work it in time measure wise. Good luck.
