I really love the instrumental, especially the electric guitars, but the lyrics seem very 'lazy'

okay but watching that same clip over and over drove me crazy but, i guess it relates to the lyrics and the psychedelic sound.

I really love the instrumental, especially the electric guitars, but the lyrics seem very 'lazy' 

Imo it reminds me of older songs like Elvis or Mississippi South- they don't have much cohesion but the story telling and emotional appeal is insanely potent- it's both incredibly awkward but melds together and fits her entire vintage schtick; it reminds me of older songs that make 0 sense whatsoever because the writers were quite literally too high to care

 

"Platinum and vale acrylics

Skim the paper for the critics

Babys breathin' Elvis lyrics

On the cover bar

 

Late in motel lounges singin'

Spotlight on the band is swingin'

Chateau Marmont memories fading

Hope is very far"

 

"It's the voodoo, mississippi south

69 million stars

Birds are flying out of my mouth

Spirits creeping in my yard

-

Hold my head, it's tilting back

Something dancing me around

Putting crystals on my neck

Lifting my feet off the ground"

 

"Ridin' around town, blue and leather

Walkin' down the streets like the Queen of Hearts"

 
----
 
"Blinded By the Light"
 
"Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Another runner in the night
Blinded by the light
Revved up like a deuce
Madman drummers bummers
Indians in the summer
With a teenage diplomat
In the dumps with the mumps
As the adolescent pumps
His way into his hat
With a boulder on my shoulder
Feelin' kinda older
I tripped the merry-go-round"

okay I never would've predicted she'd release a 10 min track, or that her label would even let her tbh. shook.

I don't mind the video... :awkney: The speeding cars on repeat with the instrumental puts you in a trance and takes your mind somewhere else. She had me thinking *I* was your little Venice Bitch there for a hot minute.

This is such a stretch but I got this thought and ran with it.

In VB to me it seems to me like she’s either finally meeting up with her lover in heaven and growing old with him. The chorus is her praying and calling our for him “it’s me.” I really think the guitar solo is her emotional journey to heaven/mediative state....and the last chorus “oh god I love him on my lips.” Finally together forever.

Her philosophy background is such an inspiration to her music very subtly.

OR she’s just describing a fantasy, an artists’ “hallmark” perfect ending = “you write, I tour”. Everything’s perfect. The way it seems to go back and forth from reality to fantasy reminds me of West Coast a little bit. She’s missing him, maybe she finally calls him (or fantasizes she reaches out) “it’s me.” They get back together and finally have the happy ending they always thought she would.

Did anyone point out how she used the same diamond-like clip from the Honeymoon video for VB? It starts at 4:05
