I mean, it's almost like you just wrote down whatever came to mind on a particular subject.
Lyrics are supposed to take you on a journey and make you think. And maybe it's just me, but lyrics are supposed to rhyme.

Anyone can wake
With thoughts within their head
A random word or two
To get them out of bed

But just because my sink is clogged
I shouldn't grab a pen
To write down every random thing
That happens in my den

LOL... I love it!!! So unapologetic and trite!

But, I don't agree that lyrics are supposed to rhyme. Maybe sometimes (or most times), but not necessarily all the time. Sometimes it's more about creating a mood with the vocals than it is about making cute little rhyming couplets.
... and that's all I have to say about that.
