Dashboard Confessionals’ Vindicated – “S” Sounds

As I was driving to work today and listening to my iPod, the Dashboard Confessionals’ Song “Vindicated” came on and I noticed something about it that was interesting. The song uses a lot of words that have the “S” sound to them. I counted 52 times that they used a word that has an “S” sound. The following are the lyrics to the song and the words that are bold are the ones I found to have the “S” sound to them.

Vindicated lyrics

Hope dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption
Winding in and winding out
The shine of it has caught my eye

And roped me in
So mesmerizing, so hypnotizing
I am captivated

[Chorus]
I am Vindicated
I am selfish
I am wrong
I am right
I swear I’m right
I swear I knew it all along

And I am flawed
But I am cleaning up so well
I am seeing in me now the things you swore you saw yourself

So clear
Like the diamond in your ring
Cut to mirror your intentions
Oversized and overwhelmed
The shine of which has caught my eye
And rendered me so isolated, so motivated
I am certain now that

[Chorus]

So turn
Up the corners of your lips
Part them and feel my finger tips
Trace the moment, fall forever
Defense is paper thin
Just one touch and I’d be in
Too deep now to ever swim against the current
So let me slip away [3x]
So let me slip against the current
So let me slip away [4x]

[Chorus]

Slight hope
It dangles on a string
Like slow spinning redemption…
