Where should Katy Perry's "Chained To The Rhythm" go? In lyrical tone it's a 1, but in lyrical implication it's somewhere between 7 and 9.

Compared to other protest songs (averaging a 7), the lyrics are much milder. Although there is alcohol use (supposedly a 7), it fits 5 better.

Where would Inscription of Hope go? The lyrics are simultaneously pessimistic and optimistic, depressing and heartening.

Should these have links to the lyrics? Most examples don't have a snippet of them like the trope description asks for, but it'd get awfully long if they did, anyway.
