Philosopher-King (of the Silver Dollar)

Simon has just posted this gem:

PHILOSOPHY AND ALT. COUNTRY LYRICS (CONT.)”The meaning of the world lies outside the world”
-Silver Jews on Carnap’s rejection of metaphysics.

BONUS: PHILOSOPHY AND GRIME LYRICS.

“Everybody’s talking but nobody’s listening”
-Dizzee on Heidegger’s concept of ‘idle talk’.

“I’m no longer human- i’ve become an investment”
-Wiley on the Marxian concept of capital fetishism.

Simon doesn’t have comments over at his blog, so if anyone wants to post more examples — and not necessarily onlyfrom grime and alt.country — in the same format in mine, feel free.
