I never write the lyrics first.
Usually I start with the chord progression that I work out on my piano.
I then create a singable melody.
Then I find words and phrases that naturally match the rhythm of the melody.
I reinforce whatever imagery those initial bits inspire.
So what are the lyrics about?
None of them are love songs.
For me they fall into several possible categories:
–Wacky conspiracy theories that date back centuries
–Questionable advice from doctors and/or psychiatrists
–Movies or musicals that never got made or did but remain obscure
Feel free to suggest what you think Motor Ballet songs are about.
