Today I was thinking about how Ultraviolence is, probably, Lana at her most poet-self if that makes sense. One of her career highlights is, without a doubt, Brooklyn Baby. This verse always gets me no matter how many times I listen to this damn song

 

They say I'm too young to love you
They say I'm too dumb to see
They judge me like a picture book
By the colors, like they forgot to read
I think we're like fire and water (!)
I think we're like the wind and sea (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
You're burning up, I'm cooling down ( :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny:  :toofunny: )
You're up, I'm down (! :crai: ! :crai: ! :crai: ! :crai: ! :crai: )
You're blind, I see ( :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant:  :icant: )
 
BUT I'M FREEEEEEEEEEeEEeEeEeEeEeEeEeEeeEE UH HUUUUUUUUUH I'M FREEEEEEEEEE :defeated:

Don't ask if I'm happy - you know that I'm not

But at best, I can say I'm not sad

 

 

 

Never have I ever related so much to a Lana line.

I've been tearing up town in my fucking white gown
Like a goddamn 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

 

One of my favorite things is when an artist refers to themselves in a song (or book, movie, etc). Like separates, kind of, this certain part that exist inside of them (of us all actually. You know, our demons, angels, whatever you call) and talk to/about it like it was a person.

I know this is going to sound so stupid but I love her lyrics that are like "I'll be doing drugs, taking shots, making out in parking lots with every little boy I spot" even her trashy songs are amazing

National Anthem appreciation:

 

"Red, white, blue's in the skies, summer's in the air and baby, heaven's in your eyes"

 

"Money is the reason we exist
Everybody knows it, it's a fact-kiss, kiss"

 

"It's a love story for the new age
For the six page, we're on a quick, sick rampage
Winin' and dinin', drinkin' and drivin', excessive buyin'
Overdose and dyin' on our drugs and our love and our dreams and our rage
Blurrin' the lines between real and the fake"

I am so goddamn envious of her skills of self-mythologizing. I wish I could do that in my writing! Maybe I am lacking talent for that, or self-confidence. Can't help but love how she spuns tales of her life. 

I am torn about Hope is... when it comes to the sound, but I am so in awe of the narrative (though I hoped the Sylvia reference to be explored more, but it is what it is, I guess).
Think I might do some close reading of her lyrics.

"In the name of higher consciousness

I let the best man I knew go
'Cause it's nice to love and be loved
But it's better to know all you can know
I said it's nice to love and be loved

But I'd rather know what God knows

- Pawn Shop Blues

 

"The power of youth is on my mind

Sunsets, small town, I'm out of time
Will you still love me when I shine
From words but not from beauty
My father's love was always strong
My mother's glamour lives on and on
Yet still inside, I felt alone

For reasons unknown to me"

Old Money

 

"Velveteen and living single

It never felt that right to me
I know what only the girls know
Lies can buy you eternity
I, I, see you leaving

So I push record and watch you leave"

Music to Watch Boys To

 

"But you can still find me

If you ask nicely
Underneath the pines
With the daisies
Feeling hazy
In the ballroom of my mind

Across the county line"

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 and hoping for an end to them
Their arches are illusions, solid at first glance
But then you try to touch them and there’s nothing to hold on to
The colors used to lure you in and put you in a trance


Get Free is a fucking masterpiece I’m literally still tearing up listening to it almost two years later. She really did THAT.

Oh say can you see

My stars

The night time is almost ours

To wander through alleys

And look at the bars

Nighttime is almost ours

All of Body Electric basically.

Especially the line : "She prays the Rosary for my broken mind"

 

"I can see my baby swaying, my parliaments on fire and his hands are up, on the balcony and I'm swaying"

 

"Little bits of pieces lined up in an order, box of broken laces tied up in a corner, I'll do what you tell me, we can have it your way, I'll tell you the future , you tell me your story."
