my favorite lyricists.

in no particular order:

Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music/Rumbleseat/Chuck Ragan (among others)
-somehow chuck always was able to infuse punk rock emotion into old time wisdom and positive vibes. I've always loved him for it. And i still do.

John K Samson (Weakerthans, Propagandhi (like 2 songs))
-approachable poetry about the day to day and insight into the human condition from the point of view of cats.

Aaron Weiss (mewithoutYou)
-just awesome. i dunno what to say about it. obscure religious references and subtle Christianity make him a winner in my book.
