I had a little trouble with some of the lyrics. Lyrics I'm unsure about are in red:


Our kind of love
It was once in a lifetime
It couldn't last
It was doomed from the first time

And you were 50s cool
In blue suede shoes
But it was a cover for all of the trouble
You got into

I always fall for the wrong guy
Things that are bad always taste nice
That's what girls like me do
Lose you

Don't tell me it's over
Don't tell me it's over
Hollywood's dead
Elvis is crying
Vicious in flames
[Bolin/Bolan?] is dying
And in the light you're sickeningly beautiful
Say goodbye, you're sickeningly beautiful

This kind of life
Wasn't meant for the good girl
Try as I might
In the end, it's a cruel world

And you are living proof
Sinatra aloof
That you were an actor who only went after
The ones who swooned

I always fall for the same type
Gangsters in Vegas on game night
That's what girls like me like
The limelight

Don't tell me it's over
Don't tell me it's over
Hollywood's dead
Elvis is crying
Marilyn's sad
Hendrix is lying there
In the light you're sickeningly beautiful
Say goodbye, you're sickeningly beautiful

If you should go before me then know
That I always loved you
There's no one above you, baby

Don't tell me it's over
Don't tell me it's over
Hollywood's dead
Elvis is crying
Lennon, wake up
Cobain, stop lying there
In the light you're sickeningly beautiful
Say goodbye, you're sickeningly beautiful
Say goodnight, you're so beautiful

Hollywood's dead
Hollywood's dead
Hollywood's dead
Yeah

Hollywood's dead
Hollywood's dead
Hollywood's dead
Yeah
(Cut!)

It sounds like "lose you" I think.
And in this line you should write
"Hendrix is lying
There In the light you're sickeningly beautiful"
It goes better with the rime in the pervious lines. And the same in the Cobain line.
And this I'm not sure about at all, but it sounds like "you should go before me then know". Idk about that one tho.

Thanks for both these corrections!

But I have to say you guys are way off on some of the other lyrics:

Vicious/Bitches/Witches in flames *facepalm*

Lenin wake up

She's name-checking a bunch of musicians that died early: Elvis, Sid Vicious, Marilyn Monroe, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, and... somebody else:

Pauline/a is dying / Bowling (?) is dying <---too much possibility for this one

Roland is dying there is what it sounds like which begs the question- who's roland??? lmao


Perhaps it's (Tommy) Bolin or (Marc) Bolan? Both of those guys were musicians who died early, but neither was as famous as the other people she lists, nor their deaths as fetishized.

Also, Sid Vicious died of an overdose, not in a fire, so I'm assuming "Vicious in flames" is referring to the fact that he was cremated.

I hope for the sake of all that is good in the world that Lana is mentioning Marc Bolan in a song. That would be charming.

The possible connection between COTBR and the T-Rex song "Children of the Revolution" makes me inclined to say it probably is Bolan:

Children of the Bad Revolution
 


Side note: I still can't hear "T-Rex" without automatically thinking of this ridiculous song:
Listen on Soundcloud.com
