Jonathan Mess artistic style.

Messism is an artistic style from the hypermodernity mainly use by Jonathan Mess in Dance Gavin Dance. It is most often characterized by non-sense sentences, imagery-inspired rhetoric, unusual grammatical forms, synthaxic disorders and in some case, dynamic onomatopoeias. The main themes are the absurdity of life and the present moment. Jon Mess also use cameo ("Hello my name is Jon Fucking Mess, I wrote a script to get you out of your dress!", "Jon Mess you should own a gun.", etc.) to illustrate more credibility to his artistry. His lyrics make absolutely no sense in out of the context of the song. It's like if Jon Mess puking Dalì surrealist painting.
