I Get a song to the point where it's ready for lyrics. I get a collection of songs then start in on the lyrics, If I haven't already sketched down some ideas for a few of the songs.. Lyrics really define the final structure so, thats when it all gets hashed out. Then record vocals for that group of songs. Then add what ever tracking is left. Accents, guitar, bass other odd noises & things.
I think it's good to have some separation for lyrics, at times. Good to go at it fresh when you start penning that stuff. if the vocals don't complete the bare song, I usually have left a little wiggle room to add to the mix. I find it helpful to let inspiration have its room to jump in & play, when needed during the process. Don't get too stuck on an idea
