Spend a couple of hours listening to music similar to what you want to write, or reading lyrics to songs you like, or reading about a subject on which you want to create a song. Then do something physical that takes your conscious mind completely off music for a while, such as a long walk.

The point is this process seems to open up the subconscious, where all the really good ideas come from.
