The return of "John Galt" (well, kinda)

I haven't attempted to write a Galt song in a while, but I guess you could say I got the itch. This is just the beat and a verse, pretty rough. Just a little over a minute if anyone cares to listen. As always, feedback is greatly appreciated :)

hey man

That wasn't bad at all, you got some words in ya. I just wanted to suggest you to learn about alliteration. it is a style of using words without rhyming. It isn't rap but to hear someone who uses this perfectly look up jack johnson. I will provide my own example below as well.
"The faces of power Simply Slide from Station to Station
Erasing minds through Subliminal manipulation"
I know this isn't a bombshell lyric or anything but just to show you, I am tying the structure together not with the rhyme at the end but with the s's at the beginning of the words. but it doesn't have to be at the beginning that is the beauty, you can say "Sally has a funky faCe" and it could work if you focus pronunciation on the s, or s sound, while reciting. It is a very fun tek to use. good luck!

You just got PAULED!

Will def try to utilize that tek a bit more

And thank you for the input!
I'm a big fan of JJ, and see what you mean about the way he uses alliteration.
Bombshell lyric? I dunno, pretty good though! Do you write?

excellent

really good stuff. I would love to hear the whole thing once you've completed it.

One line in particular was really powerful "I refuse to live my life like i'm playing the lottery". Could you expound on what you mean here?

Thank you :)

I'll certainly work on it when I can. I have so many unfinished projects that it gets overwhelming at times. Something like this requires a clear head and a solid block of free time to write. For me, anyway.
To answer your question, that particular line basically paraphrases the intent of the previous lines, and points to the general direction in which the song is headed lyrically...i.e., personal accountability, not playing the odds but making your own. A personal rebuttal to the "all you need is a dollar and a dream" mentality. The analogy seems obvious to me, that we put our money in daily and pin our hopes on some outside chance that we will achieve success, when in the end...no dollars left, and no dreams.

brilliant

absolutely... as a tech entrepreneur trying to make it in the jungle they call Silicon Valley, I can completely relate to this statement. At the end of the day it's pinning your hopes on an outside chance.

Keep it going. You've got some talent there...
