    Default NF melancholy in few songs

    Sooo, This guy is probably my favorite singer/song writer and he is an NF. Which NF you might ask, well im not going to tell :P , ill let you guy guess(and am really interested if you can figure it out). Also i was wondering if you guys can, maybe not relate with 100% accuracy, but at least empathize to high degree with the lyrics.

    Songs are in finnish, so i had to translate all of them and because i spent a while doing so, some discussion would be nice .

    ps. i highly suggest listening the songs while reading the lyrics




    Doesent help to take enema
    Doesent help to take off amalgam
    Pillow from tv-shop doesent help, that anatomical
    Power yoga doesent help
    Crowbar doesent help
    Weed doesent help, neither does aerobic
    I also tried boxing, lifting weights and cycling
    I meditated and fasted and swam and fell in love and
    Studied languages and read philosophy
    Did poetry and theater

    I crawl to bed feeling down, now i cant sleep
    Im lonely in group of friends
    In the morning i dont have the strength to get up to a hilarious day, im too funny even without trying

    But i move from crisis to crisis, i walk with mighty steps
    I want that nothing was as it used to be
    I move from crisis to crisis and cant find any help
    Shards of happiness wound me and gets me in
    Crisis
    Crisis
    Crisis

    Doesent help to do lottery
    Doesent help to drink booze
    Doesent help god damn it, what am i going to do?
    I take a trip to the ocean shore , shellsuit gives protection
    Going outdoors calms and thats fun
    I eat a pie, curse its taste
    I take a deep breath of ocean airs stinking sweat

    Im coloring a coloring book,
    Drawing line from dot to dot.
    Im assembling an jigsaw thats missing pieces.
    Someone helps me to find, another is breaking pencils.
    Im coloring a coloring book with blood.

    Rain is hitting on my shoulders, wind is screaming schlager(its a music genre if someone doesent know).
    I fell in a ditch on my belly.
    I wish i could tattoo the sky on my skin.

    Joy that comes out of nowhere changes the shape of sorrow.
    Im not who i used to be.
    I wish i could tattoo the sky on my skin.

    Lightnings on my spine
    Fireworks of skin
    I dance the storm to come on my side
    I wish i could tattoo the sky on my skin.

    Walls of the childrens room are yellow
    Sun is also yellow, so they are saying
    Oh i wish i could go see it some day

    Kid kept crying: mommy buy that toy
    That beautiful toy in a closet only after one play
    Grave from a closet only got

    You are a lonely tin drum
    In a closet of childrens room
    You turned on a robot
    It started walking
    You are always left here
    You are a lonely tin drum
    In a closet of childrens room
    You turned on a robot
    It started walking
    You are always left here

    You are bored of the smell of death
    And light the teddy curtains to fire
    Its like getting to see the sun

    Kid kept crying: mommy buy that toy
    That beautiful toy in a closet only after one play
    Grave from a closet only got

    You are a lonely tin drum
    In a closet of childrens room
    You turned on a robot
    It started walking
    You are always left here
    You are a lonely tin drum
    In a closet of childrens room
    You turned on a robot
    It started walking
    You are always left here

    The imagery/analogies used (especially the "abandoned toy" image!) for the second and third songs strike me as a uniquely relatable way of describing sadness and melancholy, they do seem very NF-ish. The first song is less figurative, but the chorus talking about how he presses on and the ironically upbeat (imo) sound are something I can really relate to! I usually cope with sadness by trying to carry on with life like there's nothing wrong and by and large most people really don't seem to sense anything off...O_o even if my world is practically breaking down inside.

    I would guess infp, but it's probably coloured by stereotypes of the melancholic infp heheh >.< still, the richly imaginative language, the idea of being lonely within a group of friends and the overall feel of the songs just makes it feel likely!

    hehe. but dont get fooled by the topic of these songs, this guy has recorded 26 albums and not all of them are about melancholy. i just chose these songs because first i was going to just post one song, but then i thought that only one of these might not had been enough for analyzing much.
