I've started a lyric thread. You can post your lyric there.

Also, I'm in. I uh, apologize to anyone who is offended by that third verse. I tried not to go political, I really did.
I released my first album on January 26th, 2018.

Last night I was laying in bed trying to go to sleep. Instead of falling asleep though I had an idea for a song and wound up writing all the lyrics in my head. I had to get up and type them all out in the middle of the night. So I'm in!

I'm working on something that I don't hate yet :idea: . Nice to have a little extra time. And cool that it looks like we might have more entries this time.

Sent in an updated mix that probably could have been skipped, but what the hell.

I've sent something. Possibly to be updated depending on how strict this fight's deadline turns out to be! But mostly just pleased to have actually recorded something.

I'm in, with a new collaborator. I never would have thought I'd put nods to Big Thief, The Nails, and Dumb & Dumber all in one song, but I did.

Excited for this one. Recruited a couple people for their first songfight. Its rough at the start, but the fact they were willing to attempt to write, produce and perform a track from scratch in a short period of time shows future songfights will be fun. Can't wait to hear what everyone came up with

Tuners Union is in as well, with something that's not really finished and has a whole slew of mix problems.

Ok I'm in. Late. But I'm in. If the fightmaster accepts the late entry.
