    Title says it all! I'm super time limited these days, but I wrote a fun pop-punk song about an emo robot that can never be metal. Please let me know if you'd like to collaborate on this song! The lyrics are below:

    Song idea about a robot/emo-bot that literally is metal but metaphorically can never be "metal".

    Lyrics
    I wanna be metal

    V1

    I've learned how to think,
    I've learned how to feel
    I've learned how to tell,
    what's fake and what's real

    I've answered all
    life's most important questions
    namely the answer
    to six times seven

    But what does 42
    Really mean to you
    I'm deep in thought
    and sulking blue

    I can play Jimmy Paige, and Jack White too
    but there's still something, I just can't do

    Chorus

    With my metal hands and my metal hair
    my metal plans, and metal underwear

    metal t-shirts bursting at the seams
    Chasing all of my metal dreams, (sadly it seems)

    I'll never be metal

    V2

    As an emo robot
    I was programmed to love
    Programmed to lose
    and programmed to stew

    As I ruminate in my cold dark room
    I write these lyrics and robo-dream of you

    In the summer sun we used our Motor Heads
    "Play the Ace of Spades" was what you said

    I can play the Edge, and Jimi Hendrix too,
    but there's still something, I just can't do

    Chorus

    With my metal hands and my metal hair
    my metal plans, and metal underwear
    metal t-shirts bursting at the seams
    Chasing all of my metal dreams, (sadly it seems)

    I'll never be metal

    Bridge (Rising chords)

    I've tried speed picking but my strings still break
    I've tried double kicking but knees are weak
    I've tried screaming vocals like that cat you hate
    But it all turns out like a big...... MISTAKKKKEEEEE!!!! (metal scream)

    (Metal break? Superfast kicks, screamin' lead?)

    I'm doing it...I'M DOING IT!!! Ow, I think I stripped a screw.

    Chorus (x2)

    With my metal hands and my metal hair
    my metal plans, and metal underwear
    metal t-shirts bursting at the seams
    Chasing all of my metal dreams, (gladly it seems)

    One day I'll be metal

    I may have music for this. Making it up in a Google Doc ATM. But I just saw now that you have this song locked on your profile. If someone's already on the project for you, just let me know 😀

    @moonraccoon Nope, I just had put up the lyrics locked for myself so I wouldn't forget about it; I didn't want folks to start commenting on the song until it had a demo. It's all yours if you want to collaborate, and thanks!
