The thing is, Alexi was never the smartest guy. (dropping school before even have a certificate or anything) But he had talent in music, and that's what he should stick to. The thing is, he himself probably thinks "I'm almost 40 by now, I need write at least somehow more mature lyrics." But the problem is, he still has the brains and the imagination of a 16 year old. He really should focus on the music itself. We won't ever get nor should we expect to get an Immanuel Kant or an HP Lovecraft from him.
