    Hi, another small interpretation of Lana’s songs, knowing that A&W is most likely about Sean: 
     
    “Got a cop who turned on the back beat Puts the shower on while he calls me Sneaks out the back door to talk to me I'm invisible, you should’ve told me Did you really think I would spare your/her tears just to save your happiness? When I had no idea you were engaged. After all of those years, do you think I’d spare their tears to save my face? You must not have known who you were dealing with.”
     
    It seems like A&W is about Sean Larkin, and a few other songs of hers, like Blue Banisters and Chemtrails Over the Country Club. Based on those lyrics, Sean literally made her the “American Whore” by still seeing her when he was engaged, but what’s interesting is that if COTCC is about him, if you pick up the symbolism from the music video in the breaking glass/mirror scene at 4:30, she sings “my cancer is sun and my leo is moon”, while breaking through glass and appearing completely unaltered and unbothered. She then turns into a wolf in the next scene, which wolves are known to symbolize freedom, intuition, courage, and self-reliance. Also, at 4:07 she sings “it’s never too late, baby so don’t give up”, with a scene of her in a car with her hands surrendering into a tornado that is pulling the car up in the sky. This imagery and symbolism, as well as the lyrics themselves show a spiritual surrendering to what fulfills her soul. And writing about her relationships is connected to that, even if they may be tumultuous. That’s where she’s needed, that’s where she’s wild and free— almost like her pain in her music from her experiences is healing herself and the world. It’s also interesting that if this is true, the imagery of her walking and breaking the glass symbolizes her not giving a fuck what anyone thinks of her— (also interesting how this theme is mentioned over and over again, such as in the Ride monologue— identifying more with freedom and being crazy than to live an unfulfilling life) she’s gonna follow where her soul leads her, at the expense of her image. Thus claiming the title of the “American Whore”, ironically.

    Lana sampled the begining of this song. She probably likes Mazzy Star too. UV seems really inspired by Hope sandoval
    BTW, Lana sounds a lot like Mazzy Star


    I really can see lana singing something like this
    And why the fuck is this topic new? Girl Hope Sandoval is A LEGEND

    Well, I'm saying this as a psychologist, not as a Lana stan. Is it possible that Lana didn't lived the way she describes to us? Yes, it is. BUT, we have to see that Lana is singing about the way things were to her, it's about her subjectivity. She uses artistic elements to translate how she felt and how things were to her, she uses some metaphors that give us a visual image of her own subjectivity. Those image came from her mind, so, her metaphors and the things that she sings always gonna be about her, so, Lana is Lizzy and Lizzy is Lana, even if Lana is a creation, Lana was created by Lizzy, you know? We are what we do, so if Lizzy created Lana, Lizzy is her own creation. It's important that Lana is always writing and singing about the way that she felt. It's impossible to tell things objectively for anyone, bc we're always telling about how we saw it, not how it really was, so, basically, it's impossible to say "oh, she sings about things that are not real" they may not be what objectively happened, but they're how she felt, so, they're real.

    Sorry if it's sounds confusing, but basically I'm saying that she sings about how she felt about certain situations, she's not describing objectively, since objectivity is a myth, so we're always creating our own reality, and Lizzy is creating hers, and it does not makes it fake

    The new lyrics for BAR are welcome change to the song and show how mature she has become over the years. She no longer blames her lover solely for the failure of their relationship. She takes the same part of the blame and shows her sympathy towards her ex. He might be an asshole, a narciss  and a loser on surface. But she sees through him, his inner beauty. She wasnt strong enough to keep up with his mood before but she is strong enough to carry him now, to be his support Its really a nice change of perspective. From the weak hurt girl that needed to be carried by her man to the strong person that can be the saving boat for others.
