    Here's some lyrics I wrote for one of my songs. I was hoping you'd give me your opinions on them and feel free to suggest improvements etc.
    It's a song against the capitalist system we live in but also about the guilt I feel every time I have to comply with that system.

    You're born into a world where capitalism's key,
    Can't live the life you want without money,
    I'm sick and tired of all this shit,
    When will we break free from it?

    You give me cash for playing a gig,
    I don't want to but I take it,
    It makes me feel so guilty and sick,
    But I take it cuz i need it.

    We all buy their capitalist crap,
    Fall into their capitalist trap,
    This is not the way I want it to be,
    But I still use their currency.

    There's people starving but plenty of food,
    Just shit distribution the system's screwed,
    And as I sit here eating my grub,
    There's another dead baby in the mud.

    The corporations own us all,
    We're nothing but clockwork to those fools,
    Yes they control our daily lives,
    As long as we let them hypnotize

    We all buy their capitalist crap,
    Fall into their capitalist trap,
    This is not the way I want it to be,
    But I still use their currency.

    We work in their corporations,
    To earn their money,
    Which we spend on their products,
    Which are made in their factories,
    Which we work in,
    If we were to refuse them control over our lives what would happen?
    Who's really got the power here?
    Everytime they tell you've got to live their idea of a life you've just gotta tell them one thing.

    We won't buy your capitalist crap,
    Fall into your capitalist trap,
    This is the way I'd like it to be,
    But I'm trapped in the system you see.

    Thanks for the feedback. It's good to know other peoples opinions.

    Here's one of my new ones called "Fairytale". It's a lot less poetic and more just writing my th:

    Why would you bring a kid into the world when you know that there's no hope?
    Why would you get married to someone when relationships don't last?
    Why would you so blindedly make these decisions in your life?

    Some people like to blank out all of the negatives
    But I like to take them in mind so I make better decisions
    I don't want to live my life so blindedly

    I just wanna live my life
    As truthfully as possible
    I don't wanna close my eyes
    And live in a fairytale which is bound to fail
    Eventually

    You might call me a realist but I just don't blind myself
    I can see there's no hope for me in this fucked up world
    So I will use my life to help make others lives better

    I don't want to work a job and be another wage slave
    I don't want to live one of these pre-manufactured lives
    I don't want to be part of system I was born into

    I just wanna live my life
    As truthfully as possible
    I don't wanna close my eyes
    And live in a fairytale which is bound to fail
    Eventually

    I just wanna live my life
    As truthfully as possible
    I don't wanna close my eyes
    And live in a fairytale which is bound to fail
    Eventually

    not just to you but to a lot of other lyric writes, why not offer some solutions in your lyrics instead of just complaining about how bad things are?

    Because I don't have the answers :(
    I just sort of act as an announcer. Here's what's going on and this is how I feel about it.
