Lorde - TeamEdit
Wait 'til you're announced
We've not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon Your Greatness and she'll send the call out
(Send the call out) [15x]
I think this is supposed to be ironic? Making fun of fancy people or whatever?
Call all the ladies out
They're in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
I think Lorde is now making fun of "sophisticated," stuck-up socialites who wear excessive amounts of jewelry.
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room
I don't think this is supposed to mean anything and is just intentionally cryptic so the Starbucks crowd thinks it's artsy and cool.
Dancin' around the lies we tell
Lorde thinks fancy people are fake.
Lorde is a hypocrite.
Dancin' around big eyes as well
Even the comatose they don't dance and tell
Lorde is calling "fancy" people promiscuous and saying they dance with strangers?
We live in cities you'll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of a palace within my dreams
And you know, we're on each other's team
And that's the sound of millions of hipster posers singing this song while they work at Starbucks in their mid-20s because they got a degree in art history rejoicing.
I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air, so there
"omg so am i! todays music sux!"
So all the cups got broke shards beneath our feet but it wasn't my fault
It's the Man's fault the Man is going down, man.
And everyone's competing for a love they won't receive
Cause what this palace wants is release
Yeah, stop trying to be popular if you come from where Lorde does.
It'll never happen.
I'm kind of over getting told to throw my hands up in the air
Fun fact: this song was called "club-ready" and "easy to dance to."
I'm kinda older than I was when I revelled without a care
Originally heard this as "rebelled," which would make it a lot more easy to mock.
But no, it's just Lorde saying she's too mature to party or something.
More Chorus etc.
