Living in a world of duality is complex I think.

Joni Mitchell is often creates songs that are what I think of as complex/deep.
Found this song I liked:

Shadow and Light

Every picture has its shadows
And it has some source of light
Blindness blindness and sight
The perils of benefactors
The blessings of parasites
Blindness blindness and sight
Threatened by all things
Devil of cruelty
Drawn to all things
Devil of delight
Mythical devil of the ever-present laws
Governing blindness blindness and sight

Suntans in reservation dining rooms
Pale miners in their lantern rays
Night night and day
Hostage smile on presidents
Freedom scribbled in the subway
It's like night night and day
Threatened by all things
God of cruelty
Drawn to all things
God of delight
Mythical devil of the ever-present laws
Governing day day and night

Critics of all expression
Judges in black and white
Saying it's wrong saying it's right
Compelled by prescribed standards
Or our own ideals we fight
For wrong wrong and right
Threatened by all things
Man of cruelty-mark of Cain
Drawn to all things
Man of delight-born again born again
Man of the laws the ever-broken laws
Governing wrong wrong and right
Governing wrong wrong and right
Wrong and right

"To Build a Home"; one of the "Cinematic Orchestra"s most popular songs. A beautiful piece of music with a very touching video.

Yeah Vangelis is quite a character - from Wikipedia:

[QUOTEVangelis developed an interest in music at age four, composing on the family piano and experimenting with sounds by placing nails and kitchen pans inside it and with radio interference.[6][1][9] At six his parents enrolled him for music tuition, but Vangelis later said that his parents' attempts to study "failed" as he preferred to develop technique on his own.[6] He considers himself fortunate not to attend music school as it impedes creativity,[1][3] and learned to play from memory. "When the teachers asked me to play something, I would pretend that I was reading it and play from memory. I didn't fool them, but I didn't care][/QUOTE]

And now something completely different:


Here she stands on the floor
Colder than ice,
Vision fixed on the door
Colder than ice
Now she knows that she's nice
Golden hair and deep blue eyes
No one dances her twice
Nothing happen so far
'Cause who wants to get burned by the ice
No one reach her tonight
Before she takes flight
She's colder than ice
How can I get in first
Hurt to intice
She's colder than ice
Colder than ice
Colder than ice
Suddenly I was there
And she's is in his arms
All too close to him
and she feels his charms
Couldn't see it no more
Could it be I'm loosing for sure
Oh it's breaking me up
'Cause I'm the only one
Who dares to walk on the ice
No one reach her tonight
before she takes flight
She's colder than ice
How can I get in first
Hurt to intice
She's colder than ice
No one reach her tonight
Before she takes flight
She's colder than ice
How can I get in first
Hurt to intice
She's colder than ice
Colder than ice
