Lyrics About are ideas captured in original lyrics that are written for purposes beyond the lyrics.
The goal is to use a scientific mind, artistic heart approach to channel the unique powers of lyrics to create, capture, and share ideas.
This approach is inspired by how scientists conduct experiments to isolate and capture ideas and the unique artistic powers of lyrics.
The goal is not to instantly create "perfect" art, but to use lyrics to bottle foundational ideas for discovery, creating, sharing, and sometimes later for polishing in ways that can become great art or precise langauge.
I apply the Lyrics About approach in two main ways.
I help others write lyrics about their art, self, brand, designs, visions, challenges, customers, and more use to people discover, do, and make amazing things. I do this in collabs with artists, in workshops with businesses, and in custom activities for all.
I write my own lyrics to discover, to go augement the science and theories in my teaching and OPI Talks, and to share with you all here.
I hope you will find some originality, power, and enjoyment in my Lyrics About or maybe even find a personal breakthrough by writing your own.

Capturing modern ideas with color and precision to compliment and expand academic and culutral perspectives
I just wanna zone for so long
And pour more than sleepy time in my cup
While I listen to a song
That sounds like a robot that has given up

Capturing the emotion, fear, and depth of psychological theories, artistic practices, and life itself
Now we’re all screaming under our softest breath
Sunday brunch smiles but scared to death
-Sunday Brunch Smiles
As a consumer psychologist raised on country music, I find there is unique value in this simple narrative-ready genre
Where’s your country, where’s that part
A prairie field like a work of art
A lake or diner to fill my heart
A rusty gate where the backroads start
-Where's Your Country?
Applying the science of how people process time and the personal experience of being a not-old-but-not-young indivdiual
Cuz you're in a story no one's written or read
Your glory days are right ahead
-Glory Days Ahead
Reflections on music and art, with a lot of influence from social, consumer, and cognitive psychology
As these ageless images fly
Through my mind
I see you in thousands of frames
Pictures of so many people
I know them all, but
Only know a few names
A collection of ideas captured in very short lyrics and prose
And of every type of thing you’ve been dreaming of The only one that lives up to the hype is love
