This little contest is easy! All you have to do is write a song. It can be as short or as long as you would like. The only catch is, it has to be about something in particular. That something in particular is... struggling. You must write a song about struggling. Struggling through the cold, through a tough relationship, financially, anything.

You don't have to sing it, you don't have to do anything like that. Just write it (which won't take too long!) and post it up here.

Act 1 of the songwriting competition ends on Saturday and anyone who participates will receive a complimentary emblem and the winner will have a chance to win a special prize!

    Walking through the blizzard
    Striving to survive
    Wanting to live
    Not wanting to die
    Striving to survive
    Hands and legs numbing
    Ears and eyes aching
    Striving to survice

    Mind breaking soul freezing
    Hands shaking voice trembling
    Striving to survive
    This hail is freezing me
    Freezing my soul
    Freezing my bones
    Freezing me whole
    And I...die...

    NO! Trying to see past the light
    Unable to fight (NO!)
    Walking past the pearly gates
    Cursing my legs
    Unable to stop the drop
    Striving to survive

    Saints and all laughing at me
    Looking down on me
    Cursing them, biting the dust ,unable to agree
    Fighting back this feeling
    Striving to survive

    (Yeah this is what I could improvise) :D I guess itll do.

    I'm almost done with mine, I'll post it in a few, but I have a quick question. Nick, can our song have curses in it, as long as it's censored?

    Anyway, here's my song. I haven't written a song in years, and I was never really any good at it. :c

    Confusion

    Every time I see your eyes
    My hate becomes alive
    It’s time I realized that you’re long gone
    But every time I see you laugh
    My heart begins to crash
    I’m a shadow of the man that I once was

    I’m becoming a monster
    Turning insane.
    Do I love or do I hate you?
    Don’t want to be here
    Don’t know what to do.
    Do I love or do I hate you?

    Everytime I sleep at night
    My arms search for you
    Those memories of the things that we’d do
    Instead you slept with him
    And stabbed me in the back
    I want to stab you back
    But I don’t know if I want to

    You might have f***** with me
    Pierced me in the heart
    Made me cry at night all alone
    But I still love you, I still want to hold you
    At the same time, I really f****** hate you

    I’m becoming a monster
    Turning insane.
    Do I love or do I hate you?
    Don’t want to be here
    Don’t know what to do.
    Do I love or do I hate you?

    Did you ever think of me?
    Of all we’ve been through.
    How much you meant to me
    Of how much I loved you
    I guess that don’t mean s***
    You’ve got someone else
    Why the hell do I care so much?

    I’m becoming a monster
    Turning insane.
    Do I love or do I hate you?
    Don’t want to be here
    Don’t know what to do.
    Do I love or do I hate you?

    On top of the world, I stand looking down
    This piece of crap that I’ve become
    You’ve driven me to the edge. I don’t know what to do.
    My Juliet’s killed my heart. Let Romeo finish the job.
    Thus with a jump, I die.

    I’m becoming a monster
    Turning insane.
    Do I love or do I hate you?
    Don’t want to be here
    Don’t know what to do.
    Do I love or do I hate you?


    Do I love you?
    Or do I hate you?

      I'll post mine in a bit (I haven't written lyrics in ages so why the hell not?). Sorry to say I'll be continuing with the rather angsty stuff.

      Survival, the ultimate goal of humanity
      Society, the form of conformity one must endure
      To live through our lives we surround ourselves with vanity
      We struggle on feeling falsely oh so secure

      Now media it tells us what they want us to hear
      Companies controls the products their channels show
      Now live with heart in hand always in constant fear
      We struggle on falling down the rabbit hole they dug for us long ago

      (Chorus)
      Down the hole we fall ever pushed by non-conformity
      Those of us who will never follow the piper piping
      Living our own lives not the ones they tell us too
      Dressing up as sheep, blending in to have a chance at life

      Dragging on, our feet need now no more control
      Doubtless are we, our lives now belong to them
      Puppets all we may be but eating nothing but their hyperbole
      We struggle on while the hopes of being free in our hearts now stem

      We fell for their ruse but saw through the thin veiled scam
      No more shall we listen to the lies of the weak
      Society bears no weight on our decisions anymore
      Taking control of the lives we intended to live

      (Chorus)
      Down the hole we fall ever pushed by non-conformity
      Those of us who will never follow the piper piping
      Living our own lives not the ones they tell us too
      Dressing up as sheep, blending in to have a chance at life


      Sorry if it sounds like angst ridden, not much you can do with struggle.

        What do you think when you think of me?
        Love, hate or sympathy
        I try to make it better but it's ten times worse
        I f****ng hate this curse
        Crooked and twisted
        You left me
        Broken, repairless
        I am
        I didn't know you cared this much
        To leave me less of a man

        Scared of my shadow
        Looking over my shadow

        Wipe the slate clean
        Erase my memories
        A blank canvas, if you will
        To match your ways a different pill
        Mind warped and utterly f***ed
        I guess that enough is enough

        So I will stand tall
        Scream loud and proud
        I am what I am
        I never even cared
        Why start now?!?

        (Half a song i've written)

          Wow, there's some good entries here! Tough competition.

          The chorus I had in store for something else, but figured I may as well use it, the rest is just written on spot so feel free to laugh if it's terrible!
          I don't really think I need to state the meaning, if you don't get it you might not should be on this thread. `xD
          Edit; whoops... forgot the name. •~•


          Set Me Free, The Confessions of A Drifter

          On a dark lonely highway, i'm riding on my own
          The only thing going my way, this hell bound vehicle
          Looking up from the desert, I see the stars in the sky
          And with a pang of remembrance, I start to wish I would die

          In my moving prison, I see the world through these bars
          I check to feel the beating, verify i've a heart
          As i'm seeing all the people, go about with their lives
          And in tearful wonder I start to question, how far til I can live mine

          I'm falling down this well, i'm burning in this hell
          Losing myself everyday
          I'm trying to go back home, but home is on the run
          Just out of reach, always on the horizon
          Does anybody hear me? Can't anybody see?
          Won't somebody, just set me free?

          My voice is just a whisper, eyes fixed the ground
          I'm having another bad day, was I lost and never found?
          My song is all I have now, and i'll never let it end
          With the chance that someday, i'll sing to more then just the wind

          If there's anybody out there, who can hear these words
          Sing along if you're with me, together we'll show the world

          I'm falling down this well, i'm burning in this hell
          Losing myself everyday
          I'm trying to go back home, but home is on the run
          Just out of reach, always on the horizon
          Does anybody hear me? Can't anybody see?
          Won't somebody, just set me free?


          Good luck everybody!

          Oddly enough I've been working on this for awhile now lol, probably sucks but oh well =x
          Home

          Walking through these new halls
          In a place I shouldn't be
          Everyday is just the feeling
          Of floating in mediocrity

          These dreary walls and the dark floors
          Strange folks with no remorse
          Getting through is hard enough
          When there is no recourse

          Out of place and so alone
          There's nothing I could want more
          So please, help me back to my place
          Out of here and back to my home

          Every day goes on by
          With time passing so slow
          Hard to handle sitting here
          Just want to run and go

          Out of place and so alone
          There's nothing I could want more
          So please, help me back to my place
          Out of here and back to my home

          How did I get myself here?
          All the mistakes laid out in front of me
          Only one way out of this mess
          The same way I got here
          Just me

          Out of place and so alone
          There's nothing I could want more
          So I'll get back to my place
          Out of here and back to my home

          Ugh this is probably horrible. Ugh looking back on it I feel like it is. Also, if the lyrics seem weird, I had a kind of... folksy, country tune in my head while writing it. (if that helps?)

          Do we need a title? uhh:

          Pull Me Through

          Between a rock,
          And a hard place -
          The world's too grey,
          I just can't face,

          It all,
          Without,
          Someone to pull me through.

          Well I'm going through a tunnel,
          And the signal is bad.
          And I guess I'll put my hood up,
          Cuz I've definitely had,

          Enough.
          Just need
          Someone to pull me through.

          I'm just trapped inside a maze,
          That I hate to call my mind.
          Well I'm screaming as I'm drowning,
          And it's really hard to find,

          A way.
          Escape.
          Someone to pull me through.

          (Slow part)
          For you to be that person,
          I get that I'm asking too much.
          But, right now, I can't stand up,
          All I need is a crutch.

          (Faster now)
          And maybe one day,
          Or a week or a year.
          The sadness will go,
          There will be no more fear.

          While I hope that day will come,
          The vultures are still circling.
          I'm running out of time,
          That meteor is hurtling,

          Towards me.
          And we'll see,

          If I can find someone to pull me through.
