    Deeper than six feet under water would be pretty dangerous though.

    As long as it doesn't sound forced or pretentious. Nothing worse then people using over elaborate metaphors just for the sake of it. Lyrics need to have real meaning/feeling behind them, and whoever wrote them needs to understand what they've actually written. Otherwise it turns to shit.
    Also, any political themes should only be incorporated if the people writing it have a clear message behind it, and a reason for it. War being an example of how not to do it on that front imo.

    I'm gonna go ahead and assume you're making a NIN reference here and use that to forgive you for the Valentine's Day thing, and I will no longer make fun of you for thinking it was about Chester's dad passing away.

    Oh my God, I am so happy right now. Thank you, thank you, thank you. :cry: I also tried to reference NIN in the post right before that.

    I feel like that goes without saying at this point, but given LP's fanbase... :rolleyes:

    I don't like "Even Deeper", hence why this is all you'll get as a response from me. :rolleyes:

    I'll agree it's a pretty weak spot on The Fragile.

    I really have a hard time believing that LP's lyrics are as simple as lyrics get, especially when I have to listen to pop radio at work over and over again (just like before).

    Believe me, I have heard many songs that are far more repetitive and simplistic than some of LP's lyrics on THP, and that says something. Then again, not all songs on THP are equally repetitive or simplistic, some being more symbolic than others.

    Also, in my experience, LP have at least tried to vary their lyrics when it comes to discussing love and relationships, something that today's most popular music has a difficult time of doing. I keep hearing the same similar-sounding songs about love that just end up blending together, with little variation.

    Well, for me, pop-music at the most had an unbeatable level of bad lyrics :lol:
