Mr. Hyde, Mirror-lines or How to write subtle lyrics
Addition (May 14, 2012):
1. Repetition is a major rhetorical strategy for producing emphasis, clarity, amplification, or emotional effect. (dictionary).
2. “The degree to which repetition is used varies widely. <…> Repetition can even transcend the bounds of a single poem. Poets often release books of their poetry, and repetition may be used throughout their poems to give a sense of unity and cohesion to the collection.” (so what we have here in Jared’s lyrics is “a collection”. Proof below.)
Disclaimer #0: For those of you who (after reading) will start throwing accusations at me I want to say that I’m a 30STM fan and I love their music. So, there’s barely any attempt to insult them or Jared on my part.
Disclaimer #1: Jared, in case you read this and think that I criticize your art I want you to know that I don’t. Art is art, and I respect that. You did what you did, and you did it great. I’m only pointing out some things that stand out to me, and TRY to analyze them on the basis of background information I have. Thank you.
I don’t know if I’m going to post it at all (and I did). I just needed to put my thoughts “on the paper” as I’m a visual. All those ideas feel cramped and messy inside my head.
