Was just listening to to WGRYWH and I was trying to figure out if the lyrics were POETRY or DRIVEL

Something I always struggle with

Any others

God Part II has some of the most hypocritical lyrics basically railing against the whole premise of RATTLE AND HUM in the final verse

There's a bible verse,
says the last one shall be first.
Well, if that verse is true,
there's hope for me and you.

There's personification in the bridge so clearly it's poetic.
