back to the original idea of the thread, how do most of you go about writing lyrics to songs because i feel thats what i need t focus on now, as the actual music is nearly done.
any advice?

Back to the orginal idea out of the thread? In this place? Are you mad?

I want to know how Funk Snail escaped from the battery turkey farm and found his true molluscular ways. Or was he falsely imprisoned, a case of mistaken identity?

I said no.

Snail use speculating, they'll be a trail of clues.

What do you like to write about lyrically?  Any common themes?

For me, the mood of the music helps suggest the tone of the lyrics.  Something slow and predominantly in minor keys will likely produce a somber tale of loss or unrequited love.  Something complex will get more intelligent, profound lyrics.  Something upbeat and loaded with aug7s will produce something more whimsical or clever.  Always fun to do the exact opposite, though.  Write something light and poppy then lace it with violent or heartbreaking lyrics and see what happens (Orson's "Already Over" comes to mind).

That's my approach, anyway.  But, what I really want to know is, what would Funk Snail write about?

I was always rather taken with the 15/8 (7/8 + 8/8) of the Tubular Bells intro.
More recently by the 20/8 (9/8 + 11/8) towards the end of the mighty Touchstone's "The Witness part 2". :)
