Finally

I'm crossing the threshold
From the ordinary world
To the reveal of my heart
Undoubtedly

That will for certain
Take the dead out of the sea
& the darkness from the arts

This is my commitment

My modern manifesto
I'm doing it for all of us

Who never got the chance
For --- and for ---
& all my birds of paradise

Who never got to fly at night
'Cause they were caught up in the dance

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
I want to get off, but I keep riding the ride
I never really noticed that I had to decide
To play someone's game or live my own life
& now I do

I wanna move
Out of the black (out of the black!)
Into the blue (into the blue!)

Finally

Gone is the burden
Of the Crowley way of being
That comes from energies combined
Like my part was I

Was not discerning
And you, as we found out
Were not in your right mind

There's no more chasing rainbows
& hoping for an end to them
Their arches are illusions
Solid at first glance
But then you try to touch them
There's nothing to hold onto
The colors used to lure you in
& put you in a trance

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
I want to get off, but I keep riding the ride
I never really noticed that I had to decide
To play someone's game or live my own life
& now I do

I wanna move
Out of the black (out of the black!)
Into the blue (into the blue!)

Out of the black (out of the black!)
Into the blue (into the blue!)
Out of the black (out of the black!)
Into the blue (into the blue!)

Those lyrics make me want to cry. Wow I can't believe people were doubting her ability to change her narrative.

Was expecting a semi-dark bop like COTBR considering the repetition of 'Get Free' in the song. She's really stepping up on the uplifting lyrical front.

This is like her jubilant send off for us at the end of the album, it sounds as if it comes from a place of darkness, but with added determination to march on to the sun in the distance

I love this so much as a closer

Such a great closer (from what we've heard lol), now I'm glad it's not actually Yosemite.

Take the dead out of this heat

 

I hear "take the dead out of the sea", in reference to the Dead Sea. 

 

I think it fits well with the next line, "and the darkness from the arts".

 

i.e., take the dead out of the dead sea and the darkness from the dark arts  :legend:

Elle has stated the lyrics won't be posted until the album release. I'm dependent on these threads too because I enjoy reading lyrics on my first listens, but Genius.com is doing the work for me by now.
