THANKS ..



I do agree though the lyrics in metal music are often epic fail. The higher caliber writing is one of the main reasons I like DT and some of their songs. There are certain bands I listen to for general mood or to practice with but I really do wonder what they were thinking or if there is a light on upstairs sometimes :/

For example a new Epica song:

Storm the Sorrow (a really f'd up way of saying weather the storm)

Along the way I find myself
To be confined within me
My place where all the others mind to interfere

To press the meaning of it all
To overcome my limits
And dance away from any void and empty tasks

The storm is wild
The storm is high
I can’t survive the storm

Believe yourselves and look away
From all the thrive within you
Leave all your worries at the door
And drift away

I’ve tried to appear into the core
But could not storm the sorrow
My hollow heart has bled me dry, left me to stray

Another time
Without a chance
Condemned me wrong
Send me to heaven

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

No time to ever go to waste
It’s not that complicated
You’re free to live your life at ease
No more restrain

No heat for shadows on your way
That try to steal your laughter
Your lights will drive them all away
Be confident

Will i refrain
Can i repent
Will you be there
Your eyes have paced
Where i’m alone in ire <--obviously placed to rhyme and is nonsensical

Intertwine the lines
And swim beneath the dark
Realize the pain we’re living
Dreamer as it need reweaving

In the memories of the deep enough to know
Centuries of dreams unending
Another way of you led tears when someone had betrayed

WTF IS THIS?! It is a long string of misused cliches not even put together in a remotely intelligible way. Ugh..
