  • God-Forsaken Town

    A few lines I'm not a fan of in this one, but it definitely has the honesty and emotion in it I'm trying to convey. Really, the first line of the chorus I'm not a fan of either. Feel free to suggest changes.

      Will do, Lee. Sorry about that! It's been a while. :smileythumbsupsmall:

    I think there is a disconnect between the last 3 lines of the second verse and the rest of the lyric.

        Thanks guys. I'm not at all attached to most of the lyrics. The first verse is on the right track and I think I'll stick with that theme, Lee. Haha the problem is I let the song sit after a break up and came back to it right after a really bitter fight with "the man" and his corporate shennanigans...namely in a church job I held getting paid minimum wage and denied a raise as an interim employee filling in a full time job...it's a whole nother story for a whole nother time, but that's why there's a gap in the story. Not sure how I missed it...thanks for the input!

      Very interesting. I'm loving the line:

      "pay a visit to our biggest thieves, who use a crown as their defense"

       

      Not really sure what does "back into my bed" in the first verse mean though. I'm guessing the first verse is describing a drunken-sorta dream state? lol

      The lyrics sounds like something that would work in a folk/americana genre. Anyway, I'm looking forward to hearing how the song unfolds.

        I can see how you might be a little dissatisfied with this one. There's some strong imagery in there, which is good. But it doesn't quite come together as a coherent whole.

        I think the chief problem here is the mismatch between the chorus and two verses. In the first verse, it seems like you're talking about leaving a woman. In the second, you're wishing a hurrican will pay a visit to some decadent people. In the chorus, you talk about leaving a town.

        If you want to revisit this and tighten it up, I'd say just talk about one of those things. Or maybe you can find a way to link those three ideas together more strongly, so there's a bit more of a narrative. That's my two cents worth.
