Yes, you have got a point here. However, I spoke with STONI about the issue,
and he just said: "Well, the point of the challenge is to provide an
opportunity to artists to get not-so-easy lyrics into a nice song. So if
there are some rough edges in the lyrics (like the one you encountered), its
ok. It will allow artists to show their creativity; and if someone cannot
produce a nice result, then it just shows that (s)he lacks the necessary
experience to participate."
