What bands are philosophical? Which bands write particularly philosophical and thought provoking lyrics? Are there any bands that evoke a philsophical mood or atmosphere with their philosophical lyrics? Does metal allow for such philosophically inspired bands more so than other genres of music? What about other genres (apart from classical)? Does one find other bands in other genres to be philosophical? Which ones? Which songs? Post any especially philosophical lyrics you enjoy, and why you like them; or even, what you think they mean. The purpose of this thread is to compare and discuss the philosophical intentions and power of each posted song. So please, everyone contribute, this will be fun and interesting.
