I really don't like this at all but I had to kill time before the next skirmish. Shoulda sunk my teeth into some pizza.

Bite Outa Life

Been workin' hard on a project
Someone brings you disrespect
They tell you it's no good
And that cuts like a knife
Don't be sold
On the nonsense you've been told
Just grab a hold
And take a bite outa life

You're way off of your timeline
It ain't just a fine line
Been strikein' out
Causing lots of strife
Every day you're gropin'
Got to keep on hopein'
Just open up
And take a bite outa life

It's gonna make you feel so alive ah
Imagine if you covered the whole damn world in your saliva

You chased off your friends and lovers
And probably many others
Thank your lucky stars
You don't have a wife
Somethin's got stuck in your craw
Now you want to break the law
Time to lock your jaw
And take a bite outa life

seems pretty good for a skirmish i reckon. nice turnaround into the chorus and the guitar is solid and the bite outta life is a good line

I thought the overall message came through well and the melody was fine. I found this skirmish difficult too. Not sure why. I like that you went with bite.
