It used to be tradition to name the song after the first line, so if you were to name your song there, you might as well just call it "Loose Ankles"

I used to not be a fan of highly cryptic poems,...

I'm not trying to be rude, It becomes frustrating to read when you add those notes in.

No, those are sortof lame arguments. We know it's metaphorical for a bigger more economically based mass murdering.

It's catchy, but social sciences define 'wants' as specific needs. (I'm hungry, so I'll eat this etc.) The last line is the only one that is non-refutable. In order to make that stanza work, you...

Your lyrics are basic. They're good enough to give someone to sing without being laughable (in the situation given). There's nothing I would really change.

But, all you metal heads seem to like...

I actually like this song allot. Very well written (and not necessarily about global warming in my opinion). Would definately recommend writing some music to this.

I've felt the same for the majority of my life, but you can drop any references to pen and paper. Use a more obtuse metaphor because the 'I'm at my desk writing this song' has become the exact...

believe it or not, I'm kinda glad you didn't disappear off the face of the earth. A little variety is nice, even when it's cliché. A good song is often based more on it's context than it's actual...

Don't force the change then. The more you write, the more you develop the style. Just keep writing and more original dialouge should come to you after a while.

"Carnivore" was very good, although I was tempted not to read it because of the name. Sigh. Actually, I personally think it's your best yet. The rhyming at the end made it that much more...

Yes, but that's not a fair comparison. Anybody can write something and say it's better than everything else on this forum. That's like telling the writer he's better at guitar than a four year old....

Eh, I'm not inspired by it. It's not bad, nor would it tear down a musically good song in any way, but it just lacks something that I can't place this time around.
