Well, there is a difference between lyrics and poems. Lyrics have to be set to music, and there is a limited time in which they can be sung. Poems are on paper to be read, and re-read. One would have to be a bit more cautious with lyrics than poems. I'm extremely guilty of using longer, "unsingable" words. I like using longer words sometimes because they carry on the mood of a lyric or fit rhytmically.

As for thinking misanthropically, it really depends on the genre. If everything was focused on misanthropy every band would break apart into one and two man projects making sloppy, midpaced black metal in their basement.
