    Default Instinctual Stacking writing styles in music

    Found this snippet around the net and thought it was interesting and was wondering if people could come up with examples of songs that touch on each of these particular styles:

    sp/soc: The most straightfoward in language, with relatively little trills and embellishments. Points made directly and from personal experience. Business-like. Clear. Cynical. Lacking in internal experience compared to other stackings.

    sp/sx: Comes out as somewhat heavy and gloomy, or cool and detached. Often gives out a suffocating and insular vibe, as if their internal world is wrapped around by an impermeable membrane. Strong sensory impressions designed to awake sexuality. Makes one want to linger on one or two lines forever.

    soc/sp: Tangential. Lots of details and analysis. Very in-their-head and intellectual, and lacks sensuality. Comes across as level-headed and unspontaneous, but also with personal warmth. Their written works often require a great deal of mental concentration from the readers.

    soc/sx: The word "fantastical" comes to mind. Lots of virtuosity and trills, and often removed from the real world. One is whirled away by the dazzling fairies of their colorful imagination. Can be too rich in imagery for their own good. Sustained dramatic power due to their knowledge of interpersonal dynamics.

    sx/sp: Intense, often a stab-in-the-chest sensation, leaving me in tears without knowing why. Fantastical but much more concentrated in a few inner images. Can be abstract, animating dead objects into their field of contemplation. Embodiment of another human, thing, or idea is common in their writings.

    sx/soc: My impression of their writing is "fire-and-ice", as if one is to experience the extremes of heat and coldness at the same time. Often abstract, spilling one inner vision after another like a dream-sequence. Seems particularly in touch with the core meaning of life and death.

    I stepped out onto the midway. I was looking for the pirate
    ship and saw this small, old tent at one end. It was blue,
    and had white lights hanging all around it. I decided to check
    out the tent, it seemed I could hear music coming from inside.
    As I walked toward it, I passed a crowd of people at the sideshow.

    I couldn't figure out why they would want to wait in line. I
    pulled back the drape thing on the tent. There was a crystal
    ball at the table, and behind it, a girl wearing a hat. She
    smiled, and asked me if I wanted my fortune read. I said okay,
    and sat down. I thought about it for a minute, and asked her
    if she would rather go on the roller coaster instead.

    Creeping up into the sky. Stopping, at the top, and
    starting down. The girl grabbed my hand, I clutched it
    tight. I said good-bye to the ground.

    Far below, a soiled man. A bucket of torn tickets at his side.
    He watches as the children run by. And picks his teeth.
    Spinning around, my head begins to turn. I shouted, and searched the sky for a friend.
    I heard the fortune teller, screaming back at me. We stuck out our hands, and met the winds.

    The girl falters as she steps down from the platform. She
    clutches her stomach, and begins to heave. The ticket-taker
    smiles, and the last car is ready. Who told you that you
    could leave?

    The sun was setting by the time we left. We walked across
    the deserted lot, alone. We were tired, but we managed to smile.

    At the gate I said goodnight to the fortune teller. The
    carnival sign threw colored shadows on her face, but I could
    tell she was blushing.

    Rejoice, rejoice a noble birth, a prince is born.
    Behold the birth of violence, beasts of fang and feather cry for our concrete rapture,
    and if we beg to be put down, unto us the most inspired storm.
    A princess ravaged by her prince behold; the birth of sex and distance, two frail corpses both were they, his eyes were the first to stray... every tree held fast the earth to sky.
    Concrete replaces every branch and twig as they were frayed upon the birth of ambition. The heavens filled our gilded vessel with poison tears, before we drink, I propose a toast, a final prayer.
    Here's to the watchers in the wood, here's to the last days, unto us a most inspired song.

    Shaper, stop the music.
    Halt the harp strings whose chords confuse our histories with textures.
    With the disheartened chorus of a hymnal whose choir is the conviction of the starving,
    artless, tempted by the feast of proof that this body of work has worth.
    Uncertain as the fingering of a chord torn prematurely from a piano's womb.

    As we fill our precious lungs with concrete, that faithful shade,
    a shaper's song is stopped short- a dying breath a singing shore.
    Then the only movement and the last remains of grace:
    Pollen falling off the simple hinge joint leg upon the final breath of a dragonfly.
    A cardinal, lost but headstrong in mid flight cries for our concrete rapture, wade...
    in the water, wade. Let the flood swell, thank the storm for her tears.

    The faithful say its beautiful, its god's will
    but the fool knows what the prophets have seen, no salvation's impending.
    The faithful say its beautiful, its god's will let the flood swell
    and the bodies that break we'll just float down the river. Stay tame,
    soft river, while we weigh our faith, stay sweet, run softly, sweet river,
    the fool who wades in doubt will float like concrete.
    Come and fill your lungs. Come and fill your lungs.
    There's so much hope buried underneath tragedy, its the same shade as concrete.
    The faithful say its beautiful, its god's will, let the flood swell
    on the loudspeaker sermons and a parish descending.
    There's so much hope buried underneath tragedy, its the same shade as concrete.
    Let the flood swell.

    to live the life you want
    you've abandoned those in need
    a necessary casualty
    or so you believe

    your wake will always travel
    and well up in the eyes
    of those that you sacrificed
    in order to survive

    i'm that aimless arrow
    lost from my very start
    violence without purpose
    born of broken hearts
    no one will ever guide me
    as i sail through the air
    now i just bring sadness
    in those who choose to care
    i know the tears they're weeping
    and the damage they will take
    it's the curse of restlessness
    and the weight of your mistakes
    they are those that love you
    and those that need you more
    then the sense of gravity
    banging down your door

    i'm that aimless arrow
    lost from my very start
    violence without purpose
    born of broken hearts
    no one will ever guide me
    as i sail through the air
    now i just bring sadness
    to those who choose to care
    aimless arrow
    aimless arrow
    aimless arrow
    lost from the start

    I can't thinking of a musical example, but the description makes me think of Bret Easton Ellis' writing in American Psycho.

    I’m wasted, losing time
    I’m a foolish, fragile spine
    I want all that is not mine
    I want him but we’re not right

    In the darkness I will meet my creators
    And they will all agree, that I’m a suffocator

    I should go now quietly
    For my bones have found a place
    to lie down and sleep
    Where all my layers can become reeds
    All my limbs can become trees
    All my children can become me
    What at mess I leave
    To follow [x4]

    In the darkness I will meet my creators
    They will all agree, I’m a suffocator

    Suffocator [x2]
    Oh no
    I’m sorry if I smothered you [x2]
    I sometimes wish I’d stayed inside
    My mother
    Never to come out

    This building smelled so familiar
    Well I had thought the sense was lost
    And in a day dream I imagined my house
    Where all my father's sense of strength was lost

    It's all we have
    It's all we have
    So find me a place to begin

    If I could get this feeling to end
    Trembling idle hands holding me there
    We laugh in the face of love
    Cause nobody's really there
    Nobody's real

    Desire, I would try it either way
    We believe in something invisible
    The sense of smell that you use all your life
    Well now you know your father lied

    It's all we have
    So find me a place to begin

    If I could get this feeling to end
    With trembling idle hands holding me there
    We laugh in the face of love
    Cause nobody's really there
    Nobody's real

    And I could never find my way without
    But you're already there
    And we, we've come a long long way without
    Without maps in our hands

    It's all we have
    So find me a place to begin

    If I could get this feeling to end
    Trembling idle hands holding me there
    We laugh in the face of love
    Cause nobody's really there
    Nobody's real

    What's left to say with all that's come and gone
    Words get in the way and anyway the devils got your tongue
    And a storm brews inside and there's nowhere to hide
    It's gonna blow your cover sky high
    But if you let this thing go, it's gonna burn, it's gonna burn
    You're gonna take the whole world with you when you go

    Oh oh oh what you gonna do ?
    When the storm takes over
    Oh oh oh what you gonna do ?
    When the storm takes over

    So here you are, demons screaming in your head
    You try to shut them out but they just get louder instead
    And nothing you do can seem to break through
    This darkness smothering you
    When it takes hold, your heart turns cold
    The very soul seeps out of you

    Oh oh oh what you gonna do ?
    When this storm, this storm takes over you
    Can you hold this thing
    Can you hold this thing
    Oh oh oh oh oooh

    'Til the clouds clear

    "When I ought to be thinking of heaven he will nail me to earth"

    11. Consign To Oblivion "A New Age Dawns" Part III

    How can we let this happen and
    Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end

    The only thing that counts is the prosperity of today
    Most important to us is that our bills get paid

    Our good intentions have always been delayed

    How can we let this happen and
    Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
    When we will stand in front of heaven's gate
    It will be too late!

    Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
    Try to listen to your heart
    No, we can't understand the universe
    By just using our minds
    We are so afraid of all the things unknown

    A must we appease is the lust to get laid
    Nothing really matters, just devouring our prey

    Our good intentions have always been delayed so
    Our generous acts have always come too late

    How can we let this happen and
    Just keep our eyes closed 'till the end
    When we will stand in front of heaven's gate
    It will be too late!

    Try to unlearn all that you've learnt
    Try to listen to your heart
    No, we can't understand the universe
    By just using our minds
    We are so afraid of all the things unknown
    We just flee into a dream that never comes true

    Low to the ground we feel safe
    Low to the ground we feel brave

    Oblivisci tempta quod didicisti

    Open your eyes, we're not in paradise
    How can't you see this stress is killing me?
    Fulfil your dreams; life is not what is seems to be
    We have captured time
    So time made us all hostages without mercy

    Seemingly generous fooling ourselves
    Selfishly venomous time tells

    Too much thinking goes at the cost of all our intuition
    Our thoughts create reality
    But we neglect to be!
    So we're already slaves of our artificial world
    We shouldn't try to control life
    But listen to the laws of nature

    Open your eyes, we're not in paradise
    How can't you see this stress is killing me?
    Fulfill your dreams; life is not what is seems to be
    We have captured time
    So time made us all hostages without mercy

    Low to the ground we feel safe
    Low to the ground we feel brave

    We all think we're generous
    But we only fool ourselves
    The only thing that matters is
    Our way and our vision

    Selfishly we're venomous
    But you know the time tells us
    There is more to life than our
    Higher positions, race for perfection
    Better, faster
    We must return to the laws of the nature
    Free ourselves from madness.


    I don't particularly like this song but I was going through my music folders to see if I could make some connections to instinct and this one stood out.

    It's poetry in motion
    And when she turned her eyes to me
    As deep as any ocean
    As sweet as any harmony
    She blinded me with science
    And failed me in geometry

    When she's dancing next to me
    (Blinding me with science)
    (Science)
    Science
    I can hear machinery
    (Blinding me with science)
    (Science)
    Science

    It's poetry in motion
    And now she's making love to me
    The spheres are in commotion
    The elements in harmony
    She blinded me with science
    She blinded me with science
    And hit me with technology

    When I'm dancing close to her
    Science
    I can smell the chemicals
    (Blinding me with science)
    (Science)
    Science

    It's poetry in motion
    And now she's making love to me
    The spheres are in commotion
    The elements in harmony
    She blinded me with science
    She blinded me with science
    And hit me with technology

    Good heavens, Miss Sakamoto
    You're beautiful

    I, I don't believe it
    There she goes again
    She's tidied up and I can't find anything
    All my tubes and wires
    And careful notes
    And antiquated notions
    But, it's poetry in motion
    And when she turned her eyes to me
    As deep as any ocean
    As sweet as any harmony
    Mmm, but she blinded me with science
    She blinded me with science
    She blinded me with

    I sit and wonder, I often wonder
    I sit and wonder about the things she does
    I sit and wonder, I often wonder
    I've been waiting for this moment to come

    And she's the teacher and I'm the pupil
    But I ain't learning anything at all
    Now I'm falling into the black hole
    And I can barely feel the sun

    Yeah, I sit and wonder, I fall to pieces
    I've been waiting for her to come
    A bed of roses, her cheeks like peaches
    Yeah, I ain't going to wait no more

    Lord give me some light, oh, give me the light
    Yeah, give me some light, give me some light

    Rights of passage, we are mistaken
    Yeah, some are going to break into stone
    The door is open and I am reaching
    Yeah, it looks like a prodigal son

    Yeah, give me some light, oh give me the light
    Yeah, give me some light, give me some light

    I've been having trouble in my head Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    I've been having demons in my mind Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Lord give me the light, oh give me the light
    Yeah, give me some light, give me some light

    I've been having trouble in my head Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    I've been having demons in my mind Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    Something's going on inside my head Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh
    Something's going on inside my head Lord
    Oh, oh, oh, oh

    I could be searching all my life, searching all my life
    Keep the candle all night, candle all night
    Keep the candle all night, candle all night
    Could be hurting all the while, hurting all the while
    Lord give me the light

    I was scared of dentists and the dark
    I was scared of pretty girls and starting conversations
    Oh, all my friends are turning green
    You're the magician's assistant in their dream

    Oh, and they come unstuck

    Lady, running down to the riptide
    Taken away to the dark side
    I wanna be your left hand man
    I love you when you're singing that song
    And I got a lump in my throat
    'Cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

    There's this movie that I think you'll like
    This guy decides to quit his job and heads to New York City
    This cowboy's running from himself
    And she's been living on the highest shelf

    Oh, and they come unstuck

    Lady, running down to the riptide
    Taken away to the dark side
    I wanna be your left hand man
    I love you when you're singing that song
    And I got a lump in my throat
    'Cause you're gonna sing the words wrong

    I just wanna, I just wanna know
    If you're gonna, if you're gonna stay
    I just gotta, I just gotta know
    I can't have it, I can't have it any other way
    I swear she's destined for the screen
    Closest thing to Michelle Pfeiffer that you've ever seen, oh

    Lady, running down to the riptide
    Taken away to the dark side
    I wanna be your left hand man
    I love you when you're singing that song
    And I got a lump in my throat

    Havana Brown
    Red One
    When the sun goes down down down down
    Boy are you afraid of dark dark
    And when the lights go out out out out
    Tell me do you know where to start start
    And when the bass gets loud loud loud
    That is when i feel a part, apart
    And when the world screams sound sound sound
    when the sound is the key of my heart

    Chorus:
    We run, yes we run the night.
    we run, yes we run the night
    we-we-we run, we-we-we run
    we run, yes we run the night
    Run em like run em run em whoop!
    Run em like run em run em whoop!
    Run em like run em run em whoop!

    From the bottom of the map, Miami
    To the land down under, Australia
    You feel my draft, see my vision and hear my hunger
    As my money gets older, their's get younger
    They sell their soul
    But the devil knows I have no number
    I'm global baby hey!
    Official baby hey!
    Go go baby hey!
    Oh oh baby hey!
    No no baby hey!
    Yeah yeah baby hey!
    Now jiggle it baby
    Let me tickle it baby
    I know I'm lost
    It's gonna be hard to save me
    I'm sorry that's how Dade County raised me
    Ya heard me right
    We run the night
    Now fuck you pay me

    Chorus:
    We run, yes we run the night.
    We run, yes we run the night
    We-we-we run, we-we-we run
    We run, yes we run the night
    Run em like run em run em whoop!
    Run em like run em run em whoop!
    Run em like run em run em whoop!

    Feel it like a rush rush rush
    Brushing past me all over my skin skin
    I can't get enough 'nough 'nough
    Cause the beat keep pulling me in
    Taking me so high up up up
    A place that i’ve never been ahhh
    Party party all night night night
    Sleep all day ..then do it again

    It doesn't hurt me.
    You wanna feel how it feels?
    You wanna know, know that it doesn't hurt me?
    You wanna hear about the deal I'm making?
    You be running up that hill
    You and me be running up that hill

    And if I only could,
    Make a deal with God,
    And get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    Be running up that building.
    If I only could, oh...

    You don't want to hurt me,
    But see how deep the bullet lies.
    Unaware that I'm tearing you asunder.
    There is thunder in our hearts, baby.
    So much hate for the ones we love?
    Tell me, we both matter, don't we?

    You, be running up that hill
    You and me, be running up that hill
    You and me won't be unhappy.

    And if I only could,
    Make a deal with God,
    And get him to swap our places,
    Be running up that road,
    Be running up that hill,
    Be running up that building,
    If I only could, oh...

    'C'mon, baby, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
    Let me steal this moment from you now.
    C'mon, angel, c'mon, c'mon, darling,
    Let's exchange the experience, oh...'

    sx/sp





    you knocked me out
    you bit my lip
    you held me down and kept me sober
    through all this time
    no regret
    i guess that's just the way i liked it
    maybe, when i'm free
    i'll realize all he really wanted
    to share all the peace
    something i never wanted
    so wait, don't go
    seems as though it's getting scary
    so please, don't you go
    wait, don't you go
    you knocked me out
    i could never feel the same
    i pushed you over
    and here we will remain
    confusion who do you
    and nothing's right
    nobody but you has to, hold onto the fight
    just before you cry
    won't change you
    it won't change me
    and i don't even wonder why
    want, touch, feel so much
    in life, yea we cry
    i know, baby i know
    but see i'm waking
    i feel, i touch, i breathe, i cry
    i know this
    so wait, wait
    i said please, smile just before you cry
    don't you go
    you knocked me out
    i could never be the same
    i pushed you over
    but here we still remain
    you knocked me out
    i could never be the same
    i can take the fight
    but don't
    don't you turn away
    you knocked me out
    you bit my lip
    you held me down and kept me sober

    Instincts in Music and Interviews

    sx/sp: Intense, often a stab-in-the-chest sensation, leaving me in tears without knowing why. Fantastical but much more concentrated in a few inner images. Can be abstract, animating dead objects into their field of contemplation. Embodiment of another human, thing, or idea is common in their writings.

    so/sp: Tangential. Lots of details and analysis. Very in-their-head and intellectual, and lacks sensuality. Comes across as level-headed and unspontaneous, but also with personal warmth. Their written works often require a great deal of mental concentration from the readers.

    sp/sx: Comes out as somewhat heavy and gloomy, or cool and detached. Often gives out a suffocating and insular vibe, as if their internal world is wrapped around by an impermeable membrane. Strong sensory impressions designed to awake sexuality. Makes one want to linger on one or two lines forever.

    sp/so: The most straightfoward in language, with relatively little trills and embellishments. Points made directly and from personal experience. Business-like. Clear. Cynical. Lacking in internal experience compared to other stackings.

    so/sx: The word "fantastical" comes to mind. Lots of virtuosity and trills, and often removed from the real world. One is whirled away by the dazzling fairies of their colorful imagination. Can be too rich in imagery for their own good. Sustained dramatic power due to their knowledge of interpersonal dynamics.

    sx/so: My impression of their writing is "fire-and-ice", as if one is to experience the extremes of heat and coldness at the same time. Often abstract, spilling one inner vision after another like a dream-sequence. Seems particularly in touch with the core meaning of life and death.

    sx/sp but my friend says sp/sx. Obviously I don't agree with her. It's all subjective anyway.

    Sounds way more sp/sx than it does sx/sp. Lots of suppressed desires represented as being physically buried or covered/surrounded by some wall; relationship with the other as means of self-affirming security from the outside world; vaguely grotesque imagery of life and death cohabitating, intermingling with each other.

    Yeah she said the same but different words. Your response seems more poetic. Um, I guess I was going on the description above with the stab in the heart feeling. This song always bring to mind two sp/sx people I have very intimate relationships with so I guess I merge with the feeling they are projecting and make it my own, make it part of me too. Thank you for the insight. I will tell her as well, She is sp/sx.

    This describes the feeling I get perfectly from this song.

    sx/sp: Intense, often a stab-in-the-chest sensation, leaving me in tears without knowing why. Fantastical but much more concentrated in a few inner images. Can be abstract, animating dead objects into their field of contemplation. Embodiment of another human, thing, or idea is common in their writings.
    But I see where it could just be deep empathy for people I know irl.

    Eh, "stab in the heart" connotes a much more visceral reaction. Like a sudden surge of adrenaline in the face of danger, a powerful, sudden, brute force impact upon the psyche. Down In A Hole is much slower paced and moodier than I feel warrants that kind of reaction.

    You're free to react to music however you do naturally; that doesn't mean the artist intended on that reaction, though.

    Yeah, I can see that too. My associations with that song is with the two sp/sx people I love, one died of the same cause as Layne and the other has such low self-appreciation that it hurts me to see them so emo all the time. He idolizes Layne and he is still very, very young. I can easily connect myself to their experiences. That is where the stab comes from. Both used to listen to this song on repeat...

    This one goes great with heartbreaks, I think.

    Sx/so - Rob Dougan: "Speed Me Towards Death"

    I don't want to die slowly
    I don't want to decay
    I want to be chosen
    I want to be made
    I don't want to die lonely and weary of life
    I will not be earthbound
    I'm gonna fly

    So speed me towards death
    Cause I want her to taste me
    You know my senses are dead
    I want her to awaken me
    I've realised that this world (at it's best)
    Is just a prelude to the next.

    Speed me towards death
    Cause I think she'd go for me.
    They say time is the cure
    I can't wait, he's too slow for me
    I've tried all the rest,
    Now I want to try the best
    And I'd die for some company
    I'd die for some company.
