Waiting for the video, I can give you some of my personal work secrets! All songwriters have a certain palette, an array of words that work lyrically, that symbolize something else. And here’s part of mine!
Sword: a fallic symbol. The symbol of the male.
Rose: One of the flowers that most symbolize woman, probably because of the red, the petals forming an intricate system, and flowers in general attributed to woman.
Fish; a christian symbol. Sometimes combined with other parts of the palette. Do think of that when you listen to Bloody Mary and: “I’m sorry, swordfish doesn’t fly with me”
Cup: also a female symbol. With the shape and the filling up.
Broken Wings: Things you have working for you, even if they are not complete. You find a way to make them complete yourself. Bohm style 😉
Pod: Symbol of people coming from the same pod, doing the same things, copies and clones, found among others in Pod People.
The emperor with no clothes: Oooooh, mr C. Andersen, you’ve given me so much here! The ideal of being the little child who speaks up when something’s wrong, as nobody else does, and the wrong is so obvious!
Sandbox, tiny box; Childishness in the bad way running your life. Keeping the bad parts of childhood; bullying, conformity.
Horses: as a child, the girliest girls where the girls who enjoyed horses, and I felt I could never compete with them in girliness. So they still represent that. The girls I am sooo not like. And today, maybe a little proud of it 😉
Some freebees among others I’m serving you, feel free to imitate and improve, after all; good artists borrow. Great artists steal 😉
