The Beauty of Contradiction

The lyrics articulate a truth wrapped in a contradiction tied in melody with a voice that makes the air feel crisp. Contradictions make the melodies edgy. Expectations and intuition will feel like counterpoint. The words are headed towards a cliff, right to the edge, and then, a lyrical U-turn. Somehow, these songs make the uncomfortable comfortable.
If feelings have expectations, these are syncopated (unexpected).

Describing music is like explaining a potion - like how to make a drink. Went on memory without hearing a sound. Then matched it with the music to see if it made sense.
