Of course, whole genres are too broad to put into one box as there's variations based on artists within the genre itself. Here's an example of lyrics from one of my favourite death metal songs. I see much more sp/sx [or maybe sx/sp] in this song than so:
Filled with sorrow...
Bleak inner self touched by pride,
devoured by solitude, still wrapped in time.
Holding myself back in suspicion...
and lingering in the dust...
the dust of my abandoned remains.
Killed with the dagger of life...!
Such an exquisite pride in my suffering...
alone, all alone with the emotional
streams of my soul...
So real, so pure... yet i'm left aside
entangled in fear... without hope.
Raped by the light of the world...
Scorned, left behind and broken down...
I am truly left alone,
but somehow... just somehow
it feels like my loneliness is a victory
over the self-delusion of joy... and happiness.
My heart beats faster,
the anguish becomes clearer
and my misanthropic view gets stronger.
Living in the shadows...
so proud of being the one,
so desperate for a helping hand.
Do I really want to live this life?
I have a thousand reasons to die,
and many millions of tears to cry... in silence.
The human plague has emtied my life,
and I curse the day I was born... to this world!
Still, no-one else I ever want to be...
and no-one else I intend to be...
'cause no-one else I was meant to be!
I need, I want, I long for my retribution...
I need, I want, I yearn for my retribution...
I want my retribution... I want it now!
Unity; a gathering of open wounds,
of dark... of dark clean spirits...
what a dream... what a dream so distant!
Why should I... why should I be alone
when I love... when I love my brotherhood?
Shall I die... shall I die to be free
when I cry... when I cry in silence...
so please let me die in silence...
oh my god, let me die in silence!
On the flip .. here's a death metal song that's very much so/sx
Prejudice, does this word apply to you?
Categories, most likely to be friends
With someone just like you
Are you a human, or do you rely on
Why do you take credit
For what you were born into?
Do your genes give you an advantage?
Taking care of your own kind
Continuing your own kind
Say what you mean
Mean what you say
Hatred, afraid to accept
People different from you
Afraid to rethink
Your own values
Peace, it won't happen
Until barriers are eradicated
Ok .. I was thinking more along the lines of the rave culture and dancing together that trance seems to have come to embody. Many modern trance artists are creating trance from that perspective, hence much of it has an sx/so - so/sx flavour to it ... I can definitely see some songs as sx/sp. This one in particular is very much as sx/sp:more Sx/Sp. Sx/So is higher energy; trance is more calming, ethereal and has a siren-esque sort of "come away with me" vibe that is much more Sx/Sp (and probably some sore of 279 tritype)
