Lyric Discussion Thread

Checked around and didn't see any definitive lyric discussion thread. (Yes I saw the "favourite/least/darkest/etc..." ones but I feel like this is needed).

If it already exists merge it.

More like "lol James providing a useful thread to the board that isn't a ridiculous and asinine poll". (A bit redundant that sentence but still better than some of Matt's lyrics).

I actually was making a big post about every album's lyrics, dividing the good lyrics, the decent lyrics, the bad lyrics, but then I decided to scrap it.

Well I am listening to BH&R right now (been a while too) so I can do it for that album.

Only at MoTP but I've never been a fan of the lyrics in TaB nor in Starlight.

Ok just for BH&R:

Good: Take a Bow, MoTP, Assassin, CIty of Delusion, Hoodoo, Glorious

Decent: Supermassive, Soldier's Poem, Invincible, Knights

Bad: Starlight, Exo-Politics.

IMO

I would add Soldier's Poem to good. I wish they had included that song on Absolution when they had the chance.

Man, Soldier's Poem could have been one of their best b-sides. Instead it's there, destroying the flow of the album

I think if you include Starlight into bad lyrics you also have to include Invincible. Although I'm not sure cheesy = bad.

I tend to consider Invincible's ones better than Starlight. Don't know why, maybe just personal preference.

I really like the chorus.

"during the struggle
They will pull us down
But please, please let's use this chance to
Turn things around"

is really good imo.

Just listened to Hoodoo. I loved it. Probably among Matt's best lyrics.

Sippe wishes they were overrated. I think they fit the music/album so damn well and in a way they are like reverse cheesy while still avoiding the TaB area (hopefully you get what I mean).

The only line I dislike in Fury is "make a fuss" and it's really only half a line.

"while still avoiding the TaB area" is not very clear. Do you find TaB cheesy?
