JOIN THE E2E LYRIC BLOG CRITICAL THINKING CONVERSATION!
E2E’s Lyric Meter snapshots the lyrics to those “slamming beats” that hypnotize. We follow the music industry “bible” – Billboard magazine – and the global impact of lyrics.
- Are the lyrical vibes encouraging, empowering, evolving, loving?
- Are the vibes discouraging, mean-spirited, misogynistic, violent?
- Are racial and other slurs used recklessly, needlessly, excessively?

Sending her flowers won't make her forgive you
Here's what you've got to do
Say it over and over
A million times
Honey I love you
He may be distant and close the door to feelings
I've been reading books of old
The legends and the myths
Achilles and his gold
Hercules and his gifts
And Batman with his fists
Hey, hey, hey
I got a condo in Manhattan
Baby girl, what's hatnin'?
You and your ass invited
So gon' and get to clappin'
Go pop it for a pimp, pop-pop it for me
The club isn't the best place to find a lover
So the bar is where I go
Me and my friends at the table doing shots
Drinking fast and then we talk slow
Come over and start up a conversation with just me
And trust me I'll give it a chance now
(Ooh White Lines) Vision dreams of passion
(Blowin' through my mind) And all the while I think of you
(High fry) A very strange reaction
(For us to unwind) The more I see, the more I do
(Something like a phenomenon) Baby!
(Tellin' your body to come along, but white lines blow away)
