Do you prefer song lyrics to be simple and straightforward, or poetic and cryptic?

I don't have a strong preference. Either way works as long as I like the melody.

People are ignorant of cryptic lyrics ..Sting said couples come up to him to this day and say We used Every Breath You Take in our Wedding..and he's like yeah ok its a Stalker Killer song but ok..

Yes, I love his Fields of Gold, but it’s hard to make out what he’s even saying, much less what it means.

If I was to stand in a general election. Would you tell me about your close inspection? And how I never stood for detection. Or would you pick another man?
If I was to find the solution to starvation. All the nations could be their own salvation. And those that lead us, leads us not into temptation. Or the pick another man.

I prefer no lyrics because they're just distracting, but that's just my opinion.

Really depends on the song.

I guess cryptic, because I like songs that make good use of innuendo.
