How do you avoid writing lame or corny lyrics?

Private, or personal inspirations, even socially personal ones, or a theme with a twist, or any other inspiration or topic that you may be unsure of for that matter, I think may be used if (for you genre) it makes for a great sound, and/or feel of the music, or ideas, great true or made up experiences or stories, moods/emotions, pride in yourself and/or your songs, a rhythm to dance to, and/or by having a sort of charismatic manner etc, or a mixture.

Yes, if it makes for good entertainment, e.g. something quirky, or rediculous, or whatever, it can make for a great idea etc.

Are you a professional lyric composer? playing guitar is my biggest hobby, sometime when i play, thought there is a lighting strike of some lyric. I guess this isn't a easy job for pop musician too, some or i can say, most of them probably go for durgs to inspire their creativities, who knows if that really helps?
