WTF Wednesday: Lyrics Wars

Heya cherries and daggers!

So, I’m sure I’m not the only person out there that’s insanely annoyed with the endless amount of fucking SHITE lyrics out there nowadays inspired by artists such as Nicki Minaj, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne.

I mean, I’m open-minded, don’t get me wrong. I can listen to some hip hop now and again and a lil bit of pop here and there and yes, I’ll admit I am a bit of a Lady Gaga freak of note, but some of these lyrics need to be stopped. NOW.

Exhibit A; Justin Bieber – Boyfriend:

Tell me what you like yeah tell me what you don’t 
I could be your Buzz Lightyear fly across the globe 
I don’t never wanna fight yeah, you already know 
Imma make you shine bright like you’re laying in the snow 
Girlfriend, girlfriend, you could be my girlfriend 
You could be my girlfriend until the epic world ends 
Make you dance do a spin and a twirl and 
Voice goin crazy on this hook like a whirl wind 

Dafuq did I just READ????

Exibit B; Kanye West – Mercy:

“Drop it to the floor, make that ass shake 
Whoa, make the ground move, that’s an ass quake 
Built a house up on it, that’s an ass state 
Roll my blunt on it, that’s an ass tray 
Say Ye, say Ye, don’t we do this every day-day 
I work them long nights, long nights to get a pay day 
Finally got paid, now I need shade and a vacay 
And niggas still hating, so much hate I need an AK 
Now we out in Paris, yeah I’m Perriering 
White girls politicing that’s that Sarah Palin 
Gettin’ high, Californicating 
I give her that D, cause that’s where I was born and raised in.”

Exibit C; Nicki Minaj – Starships:

“Jump in my hoopty hoopty hoop, I own that 
And I ain’t paying my rent this month, I owe that 
But fuck who you want, and fuck who you like 
Dance our life, there’s no end in sight 
Twinkle, twinkle little star… 

Now everybody let me hear you say ray-ray-ray 
Now spend all your money ’cause they pay-pay-pay 
And if you’re a G, you a G-G-G 
My name is Onika, you can call me Nicki”

OK you know, I like the beats, I get it. I like the feel of the music, I get that too. BUT WHAT POSSESES these people to write lyrics like  “I could be your Buzz Lightyear fly across the globe, I don’t never wanna fight yeah, you already know”?? and the “Swaggie”?????


*takes deep breath*

Ok I’m back.

So, what are proper lyrics?

Exhibit A; Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare:

“Dragged ya down below
Down to the devil’s show
To be his guest forever
Peace of mind is less than never

Hate to twist your mind
But God ain’t on your side
An old acquaintance severed
Burn the world, your last endeavor

Flesh is burning
You can smell it in the air
‘Cause men like you have
Such an easy soul to steal

So stand in line
While they ink numbers in your head
You’re now a slave
Until the end of time here

Nothing stops the madness turning
Haunting, yearning, pull the trigger

You should have known
The price of evil
And it hurts to know
That you belong here, yeah

It’s your fucking nightmare”

Exibit B; Evanescence – Bring Me To Life:

“Frozen inside without your touch
Without your love, darling
Only you are the life among the dead

All this time, I can’t believe I couldn’t see
Kept in the dark but you were there in front of me
I’ve been sleeping a thousand years it seems
Got to open my eyes to everything

Without thought, without voice, without a soul
Don’t let me die here
There must be something more
Bring me to life”

SO, you catch my drift, right? Lyrics that actually mean something…

Anyway, so put on your favourite rock album and fuck out to the only proper music available today.

Have a fab Wednesday peeps and wait a few hours for Tribute Thursday coz I’ll be posting it today!
