Default Re: Knowing your band's lyrics?

When I joined the originals bands I've been in, I chose not only because of the quality of the music, but also for the lyrics and what they say. In some cases, I wrote or contributed to the lyrics, so they have meaning to me. They also give me solid guideposts as to where certain hits or cues are, as well as the changes. Having said that, many times the vocalist is turned down in my monitor so if they decide to phrase off the beat to make a dramatic effect, it doesn't throw me off.
