so i'm talking to this guy on my facebook who i went to college with. in college i never talked to him, but thats not the point.
he started reading some of the lyrics i've written and posted on facebook, and now he thinks i'm emo, just because the lyrics i write have depth to them.
like wtf? you can't have lyrics without some kind of depth to them, whether its emotional depth. or whatnot.
so to prove my point, i asked him what kind of music he listened to. and go figure, its Protest the Hero, and a lot of stuff like that.
so i told him to really listen to the lyrics of some Protest The Hero songs, and if you think about it, they lyrically talk about religion, esp. on their Kezia album.

i know this is more of a rant, but ****, are some people complete idiots and listen to music because the music sounds cool, or are they like me, and actually listen because they lyrically talk about things oneself believes in?

and i'm tired of being ostrasized as an emo, as well.

your thoughts UG?

EDIT: sorry if this is in the wrong place. i didn't know where it should go.

Give me one reason why the lyrics are more important than the music. It's completely a matter of opinion, so get off your pedestal and stop thinking you're better than him just because you like lyrics better.

Regardless of the fact that he sounds like a moron, you're partially at fault here.

truth of the matter is, everything is labeled emo nowadays.
bad thing is that once you get called 'emo' you're sorta ****ed bc a) no one will listen to your shit b) everyone will agree its emo b.c everyone "KNOWS" what emo is.

anywho, emo changed from what it was referred to back in the day to what it is now..
when i hear the term emo in regards to lyrics i think of whiney, i hate this life.. why do i exist, nothing else matters type lyrics.

PTH to me has some screamo aspects.

So, you're emo, he's emo, and arguing on facebook is even more emo.





Btw, I think PTH is amazing.

Emo was invented by ginger people to take the heat of them, someone has got to be the bottom of the social food chain.
