Temporary Protection

I'm gonna temporarily protect this so I can remove all the extra wiki links and then save my edit and not have it erase anyone else's edits. -Heroicraptor 12:36, 20 March 2007 (PDT)

Done. -Heroicraptor 14:07, 20 March 2007 (PDT)
What's the point of this? This is a dynamic list, meaning items will keep getting added and deleted, so you'll have to keep rearranging the top link for each song, which is unnecessary effort. If someone actually wanted to click to a song article, they don't want to scroll to the top to find the first occurrence of the song name. Pomte 18:11, 23 March 2007 (PDT)
I think I recall Malechite saying that extra links slow down the database. -Heroicraptor 00:43, 5 April 2007 (PDT)

Grammar Errors in songs

More an anecdote than anything else.... On The Fragile, Trent makes the same grammatical error twice, and it could have been easily avoided both times. The Great Below: "The destiny I’ve chose"... Why not "The destiny I chose"? We're In This Together: "Watching fate as it flows down the path we have chose"... why not "...down the path that we chose"? It's only marginally related to recurring lyrics, I suppose. Recurring jarringly bad grammar? (Ok, not exactly encyclopaedic, but that's what the Talk: page is for, right?) --Mr z 23:45, 6 March 2007 (PST)

Well, grammar mistakes are not an uncommon when it comes to lyrics, they're often if not always knowingly put in as it may sound better. Wolf 01:03, 7 March 2007 (PST)
I first heard The Great Below as "the destiny of choice" which sounds more poetic to me. Started a list at Grammatically incorrect lyrics. I think it's encyclopedic for our purposes. Pomte 01:42, 7 March 2007 (PST)

Alot of the junk on that page is just generic words. Why hasn't "I can still feel you" been added?

On the fragile left side, the great below has, "All I do, I can still feel you" and on the fragile right side, on underneath it all there's, "I can still feel you, even so far away". Plus I believe I've heard this on other tracks.--Velvolver 06:56, 20 March 2007 (PDT)

Well, the point is to add it yourself. The more generic words, when agreed upon, should be deleted. Pomte 18:11, 23 March 2007 (PDT)

Hi there I noticed the other day a mention of another recurring lyric in at least 2 songs, about 'all being said and done'. The songs that mention this are The Great Below and Zero Sum. Should we add this?

Clearing up?

So, how many references do we need for it to become a theme? Some of these only have one repetition, that's surely more running out of words than anything else. Shall we set some criteria? sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 17:04, 16 June 2010 (PDT)

I would say three shall be the number, and that number shall be three.--leo3375 17:35, 16 June 2010 (PDT)
I concur, and have removed those with only two. Also considering removing others - is the sea really a recurring theme, or is it just something EVERYONE uses... sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 08:07, 17 June 2010 (PDT)

Does lying/pretending/believing/etc. count as a recurrence? BenAkenobi 09:26, 19 June 2010 (PDT)

If it's a verb, or something commonly used in speech anyway, I would say it needs at least 5 occurrences, maybe more. Personally, I think the whole page is a bit overblown, but leo's 3 or more rule is the best one to stick with for now sheepdean Try to speak as clearly as you can 09:33, 19 June 2010 (PDT)

"Finding a way" Subsection

I've noticed after the Japan performance of Find My Way that there is a quite a few songs that also make this reference, most of which are on the page already in other categories. I intend to start this later tonight. Kittiekorn 02:00, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
