    These are lyrics I did a few years ago, I modified them a little bit and this is the final piece, enjoy :)

    If I Could (But I Can't)

    If I could
    I would fly away on my wings of shame
    I would fly away from taking the balme
    If I could
    I would take you with me up high
    Saw like a bird through the everlonging sky
    If I could
    I would turn back time to the days
    When life wasn't a twisted turning maze
    If I could
    I would stop all of the immoral wrongs
    Restore peace for years to come

    But I can't do what I want
    I cant control my own life
    They control it for me
    Everything's a lie
    I'm tired of being what they want
    Fed up of being told to obey
    Tired of being controlled
    Tired of not having a say

    If I could
    I would vanish world wide pain
    I would help those who constantly take the balme
    If I could
    I would hold a world wide gig
    Friends and enemys in a gigantic mosh pit
    If I could
    I would solve everyone's dilema
    I would heal everyone to make the world much better
    If I could
    I would get rid of racial slurs and war
    Just click my fingers and it would be no more

    But I can't do what I want
    I cant control my own life
    They control it for me
    Everything's a lie
    I'm tired of being what they want
    Fed up of being told to obey
    Tired of being controlled
    Tired of not having a say

    They control it
    They control everything
    Behind closed doors
    Someone's pulling the strings
    They don't want you to be free
    They want to contain you like a disease
    They want us to die and bleed
    They're minds overwhelmed by constand greed

    I can't do what I want
    I cant control my own life
    They control it for me
    Everything's a lie
    I'm tired of being what they want
    Fed up of being told to obey
    Tired of being controlled
    Tired of not having a say

    I will do what I want
    I'll control my own life
    They'll get away from me
    Everything will be alright
    I will not be what they want
    I will not obey
    We will not be controlled
    We will have our say!

    That's nice work.

    The title reminds me of a saying that I came up with years and years ago: "I would if I could but I can't so I won't." :lol:

    Awesome work! I love this bit:

    If I could
    I would hold a world wide gig
    Friends and enemys in a gigantic mosh pit
