Liner Notes: 

Part of the skirmish... Rock your world.

This is about when someone stands firm when rocked by love

Lyrics: 

Shatter proof

I've had the sensation of an earthquake
Rock my own foundations with what's at stake
I've stood like a pillar and failed to break
It was my own thriller with shocks and shakes

Fine love can tug at my roots
I won't be taken down by you

Cause I'm shatterproof
No matter what You do
Yes I'm shatter proof
That's a fact, that's the truth
I'm shatter proof
I'm shatter proof
From the effects of you

I've had the rock and roll of a bruised soul
Damage taken it's toll with hope you stole
I've withstood one big storm and come out whole
I'm safe inside the warm still in control

Fine love can tug at my roots
I won't be taken down by you

Cause I'm shatterproof
No matter what You do
Yes I'm shatter proof
That's a fact, that's the truth
I'm shatter proof
I'm shatter proof
From the effects of you

Try and break this mind
I'm afraid you'll find
I'm one of a kind
I ain't wasting time

Cause I'm shatterproof
No matter what You do
Yes I'm shatter proof
That's a fact, that's the truth

I've been hit by wild winds when you strike me
My head won't stop spinning but just try me
I've watched strong quakes begin to rise angry
I cut the ties holding me to break free

Fine love can tug at my roots
I won't be taken down by you

Cause I'm shatterproof
No matter what You do
Yes I'm shatter proof
That's a fact, that's the truth
I'm shatter proof
I'm shatter proof
From the effects of you

I like the use of a building as a metaphor and the multiple rhyme echos the resolve of the singer. Well done on the skirmish!

I like the concept and ideas being shatterproof a lot and you develop well. Great take on the skirmish.

This could be a rocker for sure. Did you mean "Rock and ROLL of a bruised soul"? Good write.

So firm. I really like the second verse, and especially "I've withstood one big storm and come out whole". This declaration, perhaps even warning, expresses a strength that's been wrought by adversity survived. There's nothing like having been tested to let you know what you're made of. Great write.

nicely done lyric, and you used that central metaphor well

Great spin ad very fine lyrics. I was imaginery singing along which is always a good sign for me.

Super angle on the theme. It could be a great pop song this!

Excellent metaphors. 'I won't be taken down by you' really struck me - something I guess I needed to hear. Hope this gets music

I love the extended metaphor! Great job going at the prompt from different angles. I also dig the rhymes and flow of the lyrics. Really catchy and bouncy

Great metaphor style of writing here. 'Shatterproof' really conjured up some strong imagery! You even referenced 'quakes' in there. Good take on the skirmish
