I had a revelation that kind of tripped me out the other day...and it's trippin me out now so I'm making a thread about it.

When you listen to songs do you feel like the lyrics are

a)from your own perspective, as in you are/could be the one saying them
b)from another person's perspective, they are talking to/about you
c)from another person's perspective, they are totally unrelated to you

Obviously all these are figurative, I don't mean to come off as uber paranoid or anything if that's what this looks like. I don't actually think songs pertain to me.

When I listen to songs I almost always feel like the lyrics could be said by me and would be relevant to my own life.

Recently I have been trying to relate to lyrics from a different perspective. Like whenever "you" comes up in a song I will purposely pretend it's me they are singing about. I do this for the fun of it. So how bout you guys?

Just for the record you don't have to make a new thread to put up a poll. You can click a button in the lower left corner that says "add poll". But now that it's here... you can delete the other thread by deleting the first post.

And I'm going for C.

Dude I am like literally trippin bawls. It wasn't figurative like the rest of my post. That took a lot of effort to put up a new thread.

Thanks for the info though

As i said before. C.

B can actually be a characteristic of Schizophrenia.

Specifically Delusions of Reference.


Yea I guess if one thought there were secret messages hidden within a song only pertaining to them then they should seek medical help!

Or we can just laugh at the people that choose B :P

I relate alot to the music that I listen, so I somethimes see connections with my personal life within the lyrics. wether that's from my own perspective or from another perspective depends on what the lyrics are, though most of the time it's from my own perspective.

This only happens if it actually applies to me, so most of the time I feel like it's totally unrelated.

Depends. I chose other, because it never feels like they're about me, or at me. Just that they might be singing about something I can related to. So not entirely unattached, but not about me either.

Also you're off topic. This thread is about Reva eating snowmen.
