Liner Notes: 

Well, I was listening to the ol' Youtube and I came across an artist I really really like, and it inspired me to write this. This is the best writing has felt in a long time, it just flowed, it felt good, there's some real good keepers in this lyric. If you want to try your hand at this, please I invite you too! Thanks!

Lyrics: 

Bullets Inside

[Verse]
I see the way you move like a
Gust of wind that's got you
Blown back, out of sorts
A fickle ferocious frenzy of course
Right down the line like one foot over
Would spell demise, you're a lunar rover
Just tiptoeing past the precipice
Just to tell yourself you haven't given up on it

[Chorus]
Welcome to the dark side
Where you shot your shot blind
Welcome to the madness
Where we welcome flawed designs
These bullets inside

Words slipping through our fingertips
Grains of sand, the hourglass of life
We're running out of time now
We're running out of space
These bullets inside

[Verse]
You're looking for light in lost places
Recognition in old new faces
Stuck in the past, the times shift around you like
An earthquake, quaking in your boots and you just wanna
Shoot, sliding like a letter, chute, fireplace, chimney, soot
But you're no Santa Claus and these gifts must be
Returned to sender, watch out for those cat, claws
Looking for recognition but there's no applause

[Chorus]
Welcome to the dark side
Where you shot your shot blind
Welcome to the madness
Where we welcome flawed designs
These bullets inside

Words slipping through our fingertips
Grains of sand, the hourglass of life
We're running out of time now
We're running out of space
These bullets inside

[Verse]
Red like fire, buzzed like flies, when you're slinging words
Fire flies, sand in my eyes, blinded but I'm not paralyzed
You can't see me trying with my eyes closed, blind,
If I have to bet on me getting there, Pete Rose,
I think you'd find a determination strong, purple prose
Fluffed up words that you heard and you couldn't understand
That underneath all that fancy talk, I was listening but I didn't
Hear a thing from you, deja vu but I don't see you, Stevie Wonder, I wonder too,

[Chorus]
Welcome to the dark side
Where you shot your shot blind
Welcome to the madness
Where we welcome flawed designs
These bullets inside

Words slipping through our fingertips
Grains of sand, the hourglass of life
We're running out of time now
We're running out of space
These bullets inside

[Chorus]
Welcome to the dark side
Where you shot your shot blind
Welcome to the madness
Where we welcome flawed designs
These bullets inside

Words slipping through our fingertips
Grains of sand, the hourglass of life
We're running out of time now
We're running out of space
These bullets inside

[Chorus]
Welcome to the dark side
Where you shot your shot blind
Welcome to the madness
Where we welcome flawed designs
These bullets inside

Words slipping through our fingertips
Grains of sand, the hourglass of life
We're running out of time now
We're running out of space
These bullets inside

A fun bit of wordplay here and there in these lyrics; lots of energy to them. It's always a great feeling when the words just seem to flow, isn't it?

So I'm a big fan of using words musically... their rhythm and timbres can function like instrumental writing and it gets so interesting. It's why I like Paul Simon so much. You have a few super strong moments like that and I just enjoyed reading it do much!

Some wicked wordplay here, lots of fun with alliteration and rhythms. I hear it as hip hop almost.

Yes, the words are really flowing. The verses are impressive but I can hear the chorus playing in my head. “Welcome to the dark side” reminds me of “Walk on the Wild Side.”

Perfectly dark with a Great rhythm built in. Very cool chorus that ads to the feeling.
