So I've got a bit of a dilemma here.

In around October to November last year I started working on a song with a fairly intricate and detailed concept, and I was very fond of it and looking forward to finishing it...

Well, it took a while for me to make progress on it, this and that happened, and, of the last two(?) months or so I just don't think I'm in the right mindset to keep writing these lyrics.

There's, uh...a lot of spite in them, to put it simply >>;;

So the fact I don't really feel capable of mustering up the negativity that fueled the initial reason for making the song in the first place is probably a good thing!...But now I have a concept and composition and melody and no idea what to do with it.

I kind of don't want to waste it, so my options are either

1) Salvage as much as possible and try to write completely different lyrics


2) Keep it on the backburner until I'm back in the frame of mind to go forward with the original plan

The problem with 1 is that the lyrics I was writing were kind of integral to the whole concept of the song and I'd have to upend it and try to shift around parts to make it work.

The problem with 2 is that I'm not sure I *want* myself to go back to being that negative >>;;
