What's more important - lyrics or melody?

I've always been into lyrics, I especially love spoken word and rap. This is the reason I don't like to listen to genres like EDM because the lyrics are often either non-existent or very boring. But I know some of my friends love EDM because of the melody and danceability, I guess. They don't care much for lyrics. What do you think is more important for good music?
I'm with you on that, lyrics are the most important to me. Not that the melody isn't important too, they both have to be good. But I can't really get into instrumentals, classical, EDM, etc - because they have no lyrics. I can enjoy lyric-less songs but only if they're short.
Well, I also love some good lyrics coupled with a good tune as that is what really defines music. On the flipside, I also love instrumentals so classical and jazz music appeal to me much more than EDM does. Doesn't modern music now tend to focus more on the tune rather than the lyrics? End of a musical era perhaps?
Half the time I can't understand what they're saying. I guess that means I'm into the melody. Is the beat the same thing as the melody? Jeez, let me go google that.
