How do you guys interpret the "Hello, it's the most famous woman you know on the iPad // Calling from beyond the grave, I just wanna say 'Hi, dad'"? I might be really stupid, I don't know, but I think of it as something literal - she video calls her dad and Lana, being a celebrity, is the most famous woman he'll see on that tablet screen. And, being depressed and maybe staying in bed all day (a "grave" or "tomb") is like being dead in a way, and she does her best just to call her dad just to hear him, maybe let him soothe her or just to let him know that she's still ok.

This might sound cringe but I don’t take this definition too seriously myself but I think that line addressses how much she’s changed over the years from being his daughter to this extremely popular celebrity figure.

“Hello, it’s the most famous woman you know on the iPad.” Unlike Lana, Rob and Lana’s family are ordinary people for the most part so this line is a nod to her celebrity status. I agree with you, I think she’s being literal about how she’s probably the most famous woman they know when they FaceTime.

“Calling from beyond the grave, I just wanna say ‘hi dad.’”
Maybe she feels that she’s changed so much from her past self that she kind of considers that part of her self dead (which is why she says she’s calling from beyond the grave). I interpret the “hi dad” bit as a way of her reminding him that she’ll always be his daughter despite all the fame, money, etc. I can see how this line is personal because Lana rarely addresses family/overly personal topics in her music but it kind of forces the listener to see her as a person in the sense that she’s somebody’s daughter, sister, etc and not just LDR.

I was reading Slim Aarons 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
No, I'm not that. I'm not.

I’ve been tearing around in my fucking nightgown
24/7 Sylvia Plath,
Writing in blood on the walls
‘Cause the ink in my pen don't work in my notepad
Don't ask if I'm happy—you know that I'm not,
But at best I can say I'm 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 I'm 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 tearing up town in my fucking white gown
Like a goddamnit near 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 constitution 'cause I've got..
Monsters still under my bed that I could never fight off
A gatekeeper carelessly dropping the keys on my nightsock off

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 path?
They write that I'm happy, they know that I'm not
But at best, you can see I'm 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 literally work in audio transcription during the day, so I took the liberty of correcting some of these

'pad' is correct.
