Ok, so I NEVER write lyrics. This is my only attempt I've ever saved. The structure isn't worked out in stone and it's far from finished. It's inspired by all those anecdotes people tell when they gather, be it when they're drunk, passing the time, or even hanging out in an internet forum...

Storytime

Blow the time away
With thoughts of another day
Tall tales of all kind
Welcome storytime

It wasn't long ago
And happened to so & so
Based on true events
stay locked in suspense

Stuck in the meantime
But deep down in your mind
You can't worry bout the grind
Just the good times, good times

Chorus

Fact and fantasy
Future and history
Lies and honesty
All in harmony

as I read it it sounded like a real bluesy sounding song... the rythym suggested that to me. I'm not sure how you play it... but that's what it sounds like to me. Like BB king style blues. haha

I like it because it brings back memories even without hitting on any particular thing. Great job!

Thanks ya'll...sometimes I think it rhymes a lil too much though. I dunno, I never write anyways, so I don't really know what I'm talkin about. :D
It's supposed to be a little silly, but I don't really know how I'm gonna sing it or what type of music. Initially I thought metal, but now that you mention it, blues sounds nice too. Well even my metal is kinda bluesy, so it'll work out somewhere in the middle, haha.

I love the last stanza.
For life is quite absurd and death's the final word, You must always face the curtain with a bow
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

nice one rusty! maybe you can post the tab for us or record it and give us the link where we could hear it, once you get it finished. Sounds good..
I am a constant evolving music machine. Oh Man, I just forgot what I was playing. Oh well, on to the next song. :rolleyes:
