found underneath a gooseberry bush, some time past. grown crooked-tree and raggydoll. now a purveyor of pomes and posey, liking nothing more than to be thumbing his Flaming Jangle Music all hours
life breath purpose release sanity
to play better to write better to sing better to be better for the sake of being better
myself butterflies and wings and all that
the sound of pain
i hear The Universe plays a mean old tune, we're living in it.

there is no message to the music. the aim is to impart the feel, to share an emotion. lyrically to admit that we are all lost in the seas of incoherence and confusion together, in the same boat, that we live the same things. the aim is to heal.
reality being what it probably is, an illusion created by your nervous system interpreting electrical signals, existing only inside your own head subjectively, I'm unsure how anyone's can be improved but I take your point, pretentiousness aside. Ban streaming sites? Actually pay someone more than 1p per listen? Make the X / Masked / Got Talent / Bullshit Talent Show Factor and the, frankly mediocre, same-sounding, auto-tuned, crap such shows have popularised, as illegal as a 2-dollar pistol? I'm stumped. Thoughts?

sadly: youth-marketability, the potential to be manipulated by international corporations, the ability to write lyrics with absolutely ZERO substance beyond a politically expediant phrase or vacuous, pop-culture references. in an ideal world: soul, substance, conviction. remember when musicians tried to affect you, instead of abusing your adulation and selling you out for a few more pennies from a Pepsi advert?
