The Leyes Dis~Ease

I heard from a friend about a Mac product called Garage Band so I found the PC equivalent called Mixcraft 5 and downloaded a two week trial. I was able to immediately creat two songs from the "library" of instrumental tracks it has. However, aside from the lyrics I don't feel like I even wrote them. I just feel like I put puzzle pieces in the right place. I'm choosing not to post those songs (or to buy the program) even though the result has a better quality production than I'm capable of on my own. It's just not the same as writing a song. Anybody else have experience with these type programs? What do you think? Would love to hear from other songwriters.

I lie here with dozens of electrodes attached to my head and various body parts for a sleep study. Just one problem...I cant sleep. I am hoping this texting will tire me out. One reason I cant sleep is my excitement over my ascent up the ReverbNation charts. I am still on shock anyone would take the time to listen. I am so grateful to all my friends.
