Ok well I looked it up and saw we didnt have a competition for this so I decided it would fun to have one! well it's going to basically be like any other competition, you get a theme/prompt every week and all of that good stuff. If this is in the wrong forum please send me a PM saying which one it should be in and I'll put it there.
Mr. Green
Well for the first week here's the prompt and such-

INO Song Writing Competition #1
Theme-War
This week I would like you to base your song on war. any war with your thoughts about it, anything that relates to the topic. Be creative!

For example you could base your song about a family who has a relative at war and write about how they feel about it and how they hope that the person comes back from it soon and things like that all you have to do is make it into the form of a song!

If you need some more explanation about the theme please send me a pm and I'll post some more to clarify it for you.

Good Luck And Have Fun!

You Can Enter Until Friday The 13th!

Kay, that sounds cool! I actually already started writing a song about a war before I knew about this and before this even came up so that's good. Do we have to have a title also cuz I'm not the best at coming up with titles...

sorry for the lateness i was gone almost all of today here are the enteries Mr. Green
entry 1-
11 Minutes To Midnight Part One.

There's no room for mistakes or fighting for,
What you believe in, not anymore.
Selling your lies, breeding our fear,
Taking this bull shit year after year.

Oppression and sorrow is weighing us down,
Lying, denying, until we all drown.
This warfare and bloodshed no one can see,
Please end this chaos, we're falling apart!

Even in the darkest night,
There's hope, the faintest bit of light,
But how long?
But how long will it hold?

Cast into a conforming mould,
Faking my place in the rest of the world,
Taking my time till it all ticks away,
My righteous self-conscience jumbled up in a haze.

These people won't stop till we're all dead,
Carnage and blood thirst burned into our heads,
If a question arises, if doubt enters mind,
They'll crush it, they'll crush it, they'll burn it I say!

Even in the darkest night,
There's hope, the faintest bit of light,
But how long?
But how long will it hold?

We're spiraling downwards; catastrophe
Faster and faster, into this nightmare,
But how long?
But how long will this hold?

Your apathy, it sickens me,
All of this warfare in secrecy.
Your apathy, it sickens me,
All of this bloodshed, we can't even see.

Even in the darkest night,
There's hope, the faintest bit of light,
But how long? (Take me down)
But how long will it hold?

We're spiraling downwards; catastrophe
Faster and faster, into this nightmare,
But how long? (Take me down)
But how long will this hold?

entry 2-

I saw a boy lying on the ground
Bleeding so bad, unable to make any sound

All I heard was a cry for help
But I couldnt hear the voice in his mind
All I saw were bruises on his head
But I couldnt see the pain he was suffering inside
------------
Is it worth lives
Is it worth blood (dripping like water)
Is it worth pain
Is it worth tears (making us falter)

[Chorus]
Broken hearts, Shattered dreams
Million deaths, Perpetual screams
Do you wanna see it
Do you wanna hurt someone
Do you wanna be one of them
Who are brave enough to kill but soon run
------------
Brave enough to kill but soon run...yeah
(ooooohhhhhh)

[Verse]
They are starving
because of your love
to pick up that sword (you're ruthless)
And you wrote down your sins with that
I cant count the families who've got hurt (you're merciless)
------------
You say you fight to restore happiness
But instead you murder it to pieces
You may be exulting in some corner
But the truth is that everyone's weeping

[Chorus]
Broken hearts, Shattered dreams
Million deaths, Perpetual screams
Do you wanna see it
Do you wanna hurt someone
Do you wanna be one of them
Who are brave enough to kill but soon run

[Ending Verse]
War never brought peace, nor ever could
You should end it, you should
It isn't a solution to problems, but brings even more
So you have to start over, start from the core
If you want to fight,
crusade for peace
Dont slay poor ones,
love should never cease

[Chorus]
Broken hearts, Shattered dreams
Million deaths, Perpetual screams
Do you wanna see it
Do you wanna hurt someone
Do you wanna be one of them
Who are brave enough to kill but soon run

entry 3-

Waging War and Telling Tales

There are sunsets over passing days,
While life fills their throats.
The stain that carries on conveys
Fallen planes and bloody coats.

Coming down the river are
The skeletons of purple hearts,
And wading in the water
Are the leaders of the arts.

~Chorus~
------------------------------------------
We'll be waiting along
In the black and white,
And when your soul stands strong
In the gray defensive line,
Our thoughts of you will never
Slip away.
------------------------------------------

Damning blows exchange across
The blackened plains and sullen skies.
Below the mix of twisted chaos
Is where the shells and bodies lie.

Deep in the trenches, the ragged spirits
Stretch the time with dodging bullets.
Firearms exhaust and load-
Neglecting the screams that echoed.

(Chorus)

Our memories of different shades
Will shelter us when grievances
Return to breach our stockades.
Your voice is what my heart clenches.

(Chorus)

Lead me
Lead me
Lead me on tonight.

pm all vote to me by monday. winners will be anounced on tuesday

INO Song Writing Competition #2
Theme-Heroes
this week I want you to write a song about the hero(s) in your life. Be it your father,brother, mcr, or a fictional character just make sure it's about a hero. It doesn't even have to be in your life really it could just be about a hero for millions of other people! basically just make it about a person you think should be seen as a hero.
