help with a chorus section... plz

Hello. I was wondering if anyone could help me with a metalcore-style song that I'm writing. I have completed the intro melody and the main verse, but I'm having some trouble with the chorus section... I can't seem to come up with a soft sounding melody to go over my rhythm. The bands that influence me (ATR, AILD, BFMV) use heavy chords and melodic melodies in their verses 9 times out of 10, but usually use softer chords and quieter melodies in their choruses. I guess I'm just stuck in "heavy mode" . The attachment is a PowerTab of what I've done so far, and the big question-marked sections are what I'm having trouble with. Any suggestions?

P.S.: I'm not asking for someone to write it for me, I'm just asking for ideas, scales, and/or patterns...

I was very bemused as a youngster watching the Golden Girls when Blanche said she was going to "spank her fanny" I had visions of a geriatric vertical bacon sandwich red and bruised from being disciplined!!!

I dunno but I think two of them are As I lay Dying and Bullet For my yeah....I wouldn't worry to much about writing that Chorus. No matter what it will sound bland and unoriginal.

Just listen to it over and over, and sing stuff over it in your head, and try and work it out. I came up with a melody in my head the first time listening to it. I wouldn't know what scale it would be or anything. I don't really think anyone could help you out here without actually writing it for you.
