I was reading Slim Arons and I got to thinking that I thought
Maybe I’d get less stressed
If I was tested less like all of these other debuntates
Smiling for miles in pink dresses
And high heels on white yachts
But I’m not, baby, I’m not that.

I’ve been tidying around in my fucking nightgown
24/7 Sylvia Plath,
Writing in blood on the walls
‘Cause the ink in my pen don't work on my notepad
Don't ask if im happy- you know that im not,
But at best i can say im not sad
‘Cause hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have

I had fifteen year dances
Church basement romances
Yeah, i've got...
Spilling my guts with the Bowery Bums is the only love i've ever known
Except for the stage which i also call home when im not..
Servin' up god in a burnt coffee pot for the triad...
Hello- it's the most famous woman you know on the ipad
Callin from beyond the grave i just wanna say: "Hi Dad"

I've been tearin up town in my fuckin white gown
Like a goddamnit sociopath
Shaking my ass is the only thing that's got this black narcissist off my back
She couldn't care less and i never cared more so there's no more to say about that.
Except hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman with my past

There's a new revolution, a loud evolution
That i've saw
Born of confusion and quiet collussion of which mostly i've known
A modern day woman with a weak constituion cause i've got..
Monsters still under my bed that i could never fight off
A gatekeeper carelessly dropping the keys on my nightsock

I've been tearing around in my fucking nightgown
24/7 Sylvia Plath
Writing in blood on your walls cause the ink my pen don't look good in my pad
They write that im happy, they know that im not
But at best you can see im not sad
But hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
Hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me to have
But I have it- it
Yeah, I have it;
Yeah, I have it...
I have

I've always been a huge fan of Slim Aaron's photography and I'm not surprised Lana is familiar. Paradise cover was pretty much a homage to his work imo. Also these lyrics are giving me BTD feels. Faith restored!

I really really really really like this, it's giving me Heroin / Elvis vibes, I LOVE when songs tell stories. And musically as I said it's the first song so far I immediately loved, I'm trying so hard to remain calm and composed rn omfg

‘Smiling for miles in pink dresses
And high heels on white yachts’

Reminds me of this line from the HM era
‘Living in the land of honeymoons and oil tycoons
God bless America, the land of pink champagne and purple rain’

If i was tested less like how i perceive these debutants, even though it pisses me off when people assume I've had it easy because of my daddy and looks lalala

I'm sure it's great but I'm not digging the surname inclusion.

This is stunning and I’m so excited to find out what else the production turns into

Love the reference to her BTD imagery
