    I don’t think so. Good lyrics are still being written, the only difference is that it doesn’t take good lyrics to be famous any more. It does say a lot about this generation but bad lyrics, and I can speak only for myself, have never taken away from my enjoyment of what I consider to be good lyrics. So baptise me in the stars And wrap me in nighttime Moon blue Pupil my sight with orange balls of light And echo my plight Through the corridors of metaphor What else are we living for if not to create Fiction and… Read more »

    Yes… but what do those lyrics mean?

    All I can give you is my interpretation but you’d have to listen to the whole thing to get a better idea, I chose this part only for its poetic beauty.
    He is ridiculing the idolisation of deities while praising independence and art. The stuff about stars, light and in other parts he mentions earth and nature – are a metaphor for relying only on the laws of nature, that it’s all you need to be illuminated. Most of his stuff is about this kind of thing, it’s pretty sweet.

    It says something very good about you that you lead-in with Saul Williams. +1

    All of my love would have been a better reference.

    The beat is a lot better and sophisticated.

    But new music is supposed to be party music.

    Stuff from the 70’s was to get stoned to, mostly

    in the 70s, you weren’t even the shadow of the dream of a zygote.
    The vast majority of music was to dance and have teh sex to.

    Nothing deserves to be compared to bad hip-hop.

    derp derp derp Pretty much like DieA said, mainstream music has been mostly bullshit for the last decade, perhaps even longer. But there is still an immense amount of brilliant music being made every year. And thanks to the internet, we have the power to ignore the shit designed for the masses that gets played on TV and Radio, and discover the music that speaks to you as an individual. This year alone I have discovered more music that I love than ever before. And most of it is fairly recent, as in released in the last decade or so.… Read more »

    Clock strikes twelve and moondrops burst
    Out at you from their hiding place
    Like acid and oil on a madman’s face
    His reason tends to fly away
    Like lesser birds on the four winds
    Like silver scrapes in May
    And now the sand’s become a crust
    Most of you have gone away

    Come Susie dear, let’s take a walk
    Just out there upon the beach
    I know you’ll soon be married
    And you’ll want to know where winds come from
    Well it’s never said at all
    On the map that Carrie reads
    Behind the clock back there you know
    At the Four Winds Bar

    Ok Jay Z. Your turn.

    In twenty years people will be comparing these lyrics to whatever lyrics are around then.

    NOBODY WANTS TO LISTEN TO SONGS ABOUT HOBBITS AND MIDDLE EARTH ALL DAY

    Your faulty logic annoys me. I’m not saying that you couldn’t be right, but you could’ve picked a better song for comparison (i.e., something in the same general genre). Fly like a G6 is a party song, a club song; lyrics aren’t supposed to be so important, it’s meant to make you move (and it does just that). For comparison, Van McCoy’s “The Hustle” (1975) Look here’s a dance So old it’s new ‘Cause trash disco is seventies cool Like country line dance, to some it’s fine Sadly though, you gotta lose your mind Get organized, discipline is fun I… Read more »

    I’m not saying this is poetic or genius, but Marshall Mathers’ lyrics can get me amped. from ‘No Love’ I love to bump this in my mercedes 😉 I’m alive again More alive than I have been in my whole entire life I can see these people’s ears perk up as I begin To spaz with the pen, I’m a little bit sicker than most Shit’s finna get thick again They say the competition is stiff But I get a hard dick from this shit, now stick it in I ain’t never giving in again Caution to the wind, complete… Read more »

    “shit” multiple times
    “cocksucker”
    “fuck” multiple times

    Not that those words can’t be used to get a good message across though.

    Swearing can be a good thing!
