The other day somebody showed me a "tag cloud."  These are visual representations of any copy in which words used most often are proportionally larger than words used less often (there are internet sites where you create these). I've seen it done for famous speeches or important writings. It gives a pretty good idea about what the author finds most important.. Anyway, it's an interesting exercise, and I wondered what it would look like if I fed the lyrics to my album into one of these. Songwriters, or at least me, often don't know what they're writing about throughout the process an even after a work is completed. Looking at this gives at least a few clues as to what's important to me.
