Case in point: "I can see it like a world premiere/When did my objective lose all objectiveness?" Clunky, vague and pointless, to say the least.
Or how about: "If I could turn my words around, you wouldn't hear a sound."
I've said it before and I will say it again: I do not care if people make crappy music. Creativity of all kinds ought to be encouraged. But when you have a subculture that so enthusiastically endorses and rewards sub-standard songwriting, you get situations like this, where a guy who works as a professional musician for 20 years actually gets WORSE at his profession.
That's hard to do. So, uh, cheers for that.
