Default Re: Knowing your band's lyrics?

I think the lyrics set the mood of the song, and if anyone has control over the feel and therefore the mood of the song, it's the conductor/drummer. Like if someone is singing about being extroverted in some way, I might reflect that in the drum part somehow, with more out front fills perhaps....if the person is making a musical joke or dig, a little something right where the joke is would help get the message across better, things like that. It shows that the drummer is listening.
