However, if commercial viability is not your goal but artistic expression is it is still important that your audience gets the feel of what you're trying to say. Certain phrases lose all their emotional power when they're rearranged into grammatically correct form. For many "artists" the goal is to communicate to their audience their feelings or interpretation of the world. In the case of lyrics, that communication depends upon using whatever language the piece is written in appropriately. Again, if you're just writing for yourself and a few friends, you're right and you don't have to worry about that communication.
You misunderstood me there, i meant the actual lyrics on the paper, i was trying to say that it's more important that they are written in a way that makes sense to you, not grammatically correct.
