    Hmmm...

    Well, I do and I wanted to know if anyone else does. Most of mine are on my DeviantArt account but I just wanted to post some BECAUSE I CAN K? Oh - this is going to set off the censorship this forum has so be prepared for stars?

    Plagued Playground

    A condom and a short fling,
    Another transmitted disease,
    A pregnancy at thirteen,
    Ecstasy overdose at eighteen,
    Short skirts and earrings,
    Wannabe stars who can't sing,
    They see blonde whores with fame,
    They only aspire to be the same...

    [Chorus]
    Youth is shorter than it used to be,
    Innocence is rarely ever seen,
    Violence brings silence every ****ing day,
    The plagued playground rips their souls away...

    An I-Pod that is stolen,
    Another person mugged from,
    A burnt out car in the street,
    Another highly amusing feat,
    Videophones and sadists,
    Sometimes they're even rapists,
    Happy-slaps for all to see,
    Yet no justice for you and me.

    [Chorus]

    I don't see the logic in
    Taking lives and belittling them,
    I don't see how they can
    Take virginities and parade them.

    I don't see how they live with it,
    The guilt would crush me flat,
    And I definately don't see
    How the **** they get away with it!

    Like Maggots To Flies And Flies To ****...

    There's maggots dancing all around,
    Devouring the flesh and bone,
    Tearing chunks out of the skin,
    Digesting society's undertones,
    Crawling through the empty veins,
    Chewing through the bronchioles,
    Taking bites out of the eyes
    And clogging up the empty lungs.

    [Chorus]
    'Cause they're just parasites at first,
    Sucking our society dry,
    Taking anything they want,
    Their asking never seems to shy,
    And yet they still have the balls
    To look at us and wonder why
    We're the ones who get to hold
    Ourselves up so ****ing high!

    But let them take joy in desecration,
    'Cause one day they'll ****ing grow,
    Mature from parasites to flies,
    Then they get to call this **** home,
    They'll see the trouble they once caused,
    Because it'll be their daily plight,
    And they'll finally have to admit
    That what they did was bloody shite!

    [Alt. Chorus]
    'Cause they're just parasites at first,
    Sucking our society dry,
    But one day they'll ****ing grow
    And then there'll be nowhere to hide,
    'Cause it will be their damn turn,
    To hear the maggots curse and whine,
    Maybe then they'll finally see
    Why we hold ourselves so high!

    There's maggots dancing all around,
    Devouring the flesh and bone,
    Tearing chunks out of the skin,
    Digesting society's undertones,
    But let them take joy in desecration,
    'Cause one day they'll ****ing grow,
    Mature from parasites to flies,
    Then they get to call this **** home!

    Hung, Drawn and Quartered

    A country hangs as you prolong your escape,
    You lost the war so don't lengthen the state
    Of emergency that you've set-up in the streets,
    The violence and riots are all just defeats
    To the peace that your army claims to uphold,
    This country doesn't want democracy's mould,
    So cut down the noose and let everyone breathe,
    Continuous rounds isn't what the peace needs.

    So cut to the chase and stop handing out blame,
    The chokehold you've made doesn't help your case,
    You pin it on all the countries that surround
    Yet still your soldiers all manage to sound
    The same as each other as if on repeat,
    You claim to be big but you can't face defeat,
    Throw money at problems, hope they go away,
    But blood-money ain't gonna make a war fade.

    You've hung the peace and drawn out the teams,
    Quartered the country right down the seams,
    Burnt all the organs so witnesses see,
    Left all your trenches ready in the streets,
    A civil wars coming, there is no debate,
    And if you were smart you'd get out of the way,
    A riot squad's mind simply won't suffice
    But if you want to die then ignore my advice.

    Those are some killer lyrics there my friend. Very nice indeed. I do write lyrics as well, but I dont have any one a program thingy like you do, I just have them in my notebook or whatever else I write on at the time. If I ever do put them on a program I will share.
    But again nicely done!

    Hmmm...

    If I had Cubasis and a way of linking my keyboard up to my laptop I could probably write music but I don't play drums or guitar or anything. I do wish I had learnt to play Guitar and Bass, though, but I didn't and I'd be damned if I could afford lessons now. Could teach myself I suppose but I don't have the time to put in the effort. xD

    Ironic; when I was in school my Music teacher said "the one thing most students regret about school is not learning enough instruments" - didn't think he would be right >.<; :mad2:

    Hmmm, wrote this; nothing good but wanted to post it anyway :S

    Saddam? I'd Rather Kill Patriotism Instead; It's Far More Dangerous

    Fuel the war economy by sending away the poor,
    Send them off to fight on every single distant shore,
    Arm them to the teeth with guns and clips and bombs and frags,
    Don't be surprised when their bodies come back draped in flags!

    [Chorus]
    It isn't time to be playing with a nation's heart and soul,
    It isn't time to be destroying society's core,
    It isn't time to ignore the stat which rises every day,
    Every sunrise passed means another British grave!

    What about the NHS, Police and National Schools,
    Is our money so much better spent creating pools
    Of blood and flesh and gore from kids who were killed before 10?
    Perhaps if it was our kids they would ****ing listen then!

    [Chorus]

    I should expect this by now 'cause I know deep down,
    That parliament doesn't really give a ****.
    I should expect this by now 'cause I know deep down,
    That they won't care until it's our shore's that are hit.

    But what do they call July the Seventh?
    So what do they call bomb plots on our own streets?
    Is this the progress that they are making?
    Is this the progress the world really needs to see?

    But what do they call July the Seventh?
    So what do they call bomb plots on our own streets?
    Is this the progress that they are making?

    THEY CAN SAVE THEIR PATRIOTIC SPEECH!

    [Chorus]

    Your lyrics are pretty good but it takes a while to find the rhythm - although I guess it always does if it isn't your song and you don't have music to go to.

    Funnily enough, though;

    Reminds me of something I wrote;

    She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not

    Drugs, addictions, you are one,
    And I'm sick of taking the hits,
    You course through my veins and skin,
    Sending my mind into fits,
    And they don't make a patch for you,
    And cold turkey just won't fit,
    And being a slut gets so old fast,
    And as I sit all I can think's...

    [x4]
    She loves me not?
    She loves me still?
    I hope she never loves again...

    As I lie in bed trying to sleep,
    When my eyes close you're in my dreams,
    The visions plague my every night,
    And I know exactly what they mean...

    [x4]
    I love her not?
    I love her still?
    I hope I never love again...

    Make a patch, please make a cure,
    Make something that I can be sure
    Will cure me of this addiction,
    For it's truly an affliction,
    A curse, I say, for heaven's sake,
    Can't someone please remove this plague?
    Break my ribs and steal my heart,
    Stop my dreams being torn apart.

    She loves me still?
    She loves me not?
    I hope she never loves again...

    I love her still?
    I love her not?
    I hope I never love again...

    She loves me still?
    She loves me not?
    I hope she never loves again...

    I love her still?
    I love her not?
    I hope I never love again...

    I can't stand gangsta rap but some of the older rap stuff (stuff from the 80's and 90's mostly) was pretty good. o.o;

    heres a few of mine:

    armageddon appears:

    Defying nature, such a sin opposed to mankinds beliefs, fallen
    by the extacy of discovery fear of what is foretold, peering from
    the outer shell of reality and seeing morality defiled beofore
    your eyes, they say armageddon appears.

    Breaths of fire, ice cold touches, electric stares, these are
    things told of evil and denied through prayers, believe what you
    will and all will be revealed, you are not right and they are not
    wrong.

    [chorus]

    Wrath can be felt fear can be sensed, view the world through the
    eyes of your own, seeing morality defiled beofore your eyes,
    they say armageddon appears.

    [end chorus]

    Draw the sword of the ancients and defeat those who oppose, only
    with guidance of the elements shall you choose which to strike

    [chorus]

    Wrath can be felt fear can be sensed, view the world through the
    eyes of your own, seeing morality defiled beofore your eyes,
    they say armageddon appears.

    [end chorus]

    Peering from the outer shell Breaths of fire, ice cold touches
    and electric stares are your new weapons of mass destruction for
    justice is near

    Defying nature, such a sin opposed to mankinds beliefs, fallen
    by the extacy of discovery fear of what is foretold, peering from
    the outer shell of reality and seeing morality defiled beofore
    your eyes, they say armageddon appears.

    chosen insignia:

    Of all that is evil and pure, it is shown through the
    eyes of the beholder, as the insignia grows brighter
    across your body searching for a catalyst to drown
    your heart and soul

    [chorus]

    Deep inside, the tattered mind, wondering whats to come
    dark and light battle within as you struggle to find
    your path

    Listen to none but your soul within, make the choice for
    which is yours, not for the weak at heart

    [end chorus]

    As its been stirred, the catalyst has found its mark
    the insignia is complete for you have chosen the dark
    while the light still struggles to seep within

    [chorus]

    Listen to none but your soul within, make the choice for
    which is yours, not for the weak at heart

    The insignia is complete for you have chosen the dark
    while the light still struggles to seep within

    reaping beast:

    The beast arises as the blood spills
    a heart is torn an eye is scorn
    ending an era of peace

    A beginning is not near, only a terror
    encased in fear, women cry and children
    weep as the beast begins to reap

    [chorus]

    Fallen skies, a darkened moon
    as blood fertilizes land
    a crying soul begs for a helping hand

    [chorus]

    Priests prayer, families mourn
    gods denied the beast retreat
    yet another soul to feast

    [chorus]

    Fallen skies, a darkened moon
    as blood fertilizes land
    a crying soul begs for a helping hand
    as the beast begins to reap

    [chorus]

    A beginning is not near, only a terror
    encased in fear, gods denied the beast retreat

    the dementia tales:

    Inside the eternal abyss our souls crave for
    darkness to fall over the sun and unleash
    demons upon the night

    Endless demetia runs eternal in this land of
    the immortal, suffering in pain in the falsehood
    of light, only to be wasted away by the gods of
    destruction

    [chorus]

    The rivers run red, as the skies turn black
    oh help us all to understand, keep us enthrawled
    in everlasting darkness

    Morph into the demented creatures of depraved earth
    all beings to bow before the master as they hide their
    faces in disgust at what they've become

    [end chorus]

    Endless demetia runs eternal in this land of
    the immortal, suffering in pain in the falsehood
    of light, only to be wasted away by the gods of
    destruction

    Seduced by the magic of life and death oh they wonder
    how mighty they can become, run rampant through the land
    of dementia free from all!

    The Make-Up Artist Lied

    What do you look like when you wake-up,
    Before you put on all your make-up,
    Before you make the designs,
    Before your face is a lie,
    Before you put on the mask the world wants to see?

    I bet it's prettier than your doll-face,
    Don't let the world tell you it's a disgrace!
    Shouldn't listen to them,
    Every single one of them,
    Just wants you to be as vain as they've become!

    [Chorus]
    They want to hide behind their masks;
    Keep their souls inside their head,
    Keep themselves from looking fake.
    But I know better than they ever will;
    I know what's under your mascara,
    I see your soul through your eyes.

    How long does it take to do your hair?
    Did you notice no one even gives a care?
    Everyone looks the same,
    Everyone just looks tame,
    What the ****'s the point when you're all just sheep?

    If you still wanna hide that's fine,
    Just keep the walls up for all time,
    Load the cannons and defend the fort.

    If you still wanna hide that's fine,
    Build the walls and guard them tight,
    Burn the scaling ladders, tip the burning oil.

    [Alt. Chorus]
    But do you really wanna hide from me..?
    Does your soul wanna stay hidden,
    Does it wanna keep looking fake?
    You should know better than they ever will,
    You know what's under the mascara,
    Know what's underneath your eyes.

    [Chorus]

    (I don't wanna let you hide)
    (That ****ing make-up artist lied)

    It may be a bit late in the thread to say this, or someone else might have mentioned it already (I don't have time to read the whole thread).

    To get you started you could use Audacity (instead of cubase) which is free and allows VST plugins to be used. Then you could hook the audio output from your keyboard into the mic input in your laptop, by using a free piece of software called AISO4ALL you could bring the latency down to acceptable levels (I do this with my guitar and bass).

    Also you don't kneed to be able to play drums, guitar or base to include them in your tracks. You can use VST plugins to get access to virtual guitars, bass and drums and sequencers, this will allow you to create your own base, drum and guitar lines. VST plugins will also give you access to effects chains and modules such as phaser, distortion, loop, echo and parametric EQ etc that will allow you to really play with your sound (there are bags of free VST plug ins on the net).

    Assuming that your fairly adept on the keyboard and understand music theory then this shouldn't represent any real problems, failing that you could always use a VST plugin with samples as a basis to create your own bass, drum, guitar bits.
