Black Bathing Suit

Recommended Posts

Grenadine quarantine, I like you a lot

It's LA, "Hey" on Zoom, Target parking lot

& if this is the end, I want a boyfriend

Someone to eat ice cream with and watch television

Or walk home from the mall with

'Cause what I really meant 

Is when I'm being honest

I'm tired of this shit

 

'Cause my body is my temple, my heart is one too

The only thing that still fits me is this black bathing suit

You don't know me any better than they do, baby

My time has run over, so the only time you'll

Ever see me is in your dreams in my black bathing suit

Lookin' at me lookin' over at you

Real cute, 'cause

 

He said I was bad, let me show you how bad girls do

'Cause no one does it better

He said I was bad, let me show you how bad girls do

'Cause no one does it better

 

Swisher Sweet, magazines, promise you it's not

'Cause of you that I'm mean, it's my afterthoughts

& what I never said

Why there's a price on my head

It's nothin' to do with them

It's my karmic lineage

So I'm not friends with my mother

While I still love my dad

Untraditional lover

Can you handle that?

 

I guess I'm complicated, my life's sorta too

I wish you could see to my soul through this black bathing suit

You don't know me any better than they do, baby

'Cause I sing like an angel, my heart's like one too

The only thing that fits is this black bathing suit

Lookin' at me lookin' over at you

Real cute, 'cause

 

He said I was bad, let me show you how bad girls do

'Cause no one does it better

He said I was bad, let me show you how bad girls do

'Cause no one does it better

They said I was bad, and I'll show them what bad girls do

 

My black bathing suit

Oh, let 'em talk about me

They're just yesterday's news

They're fucking broke and we're laughin' about ‘em

Mail me when you get the blues

We'll have the last laugh about it

By the way, thanks for the shoes

 

Your interest really made stacks

Your interest really made stacks

Your interest really made stacks out of it

Your interest really made stacks out of it for me

So thanks for that

Your interest really made stacks out of it for me

Your interest really made stacks out of it for me

Your interest really made stacks out of it for me

So thanks for that

Yup so I guess the new thing that she never mentioned before and explains everything is the karmic lineage thing in this song.

Seems like a silly concept though.

how did she get my relationship put into a song? Ugh. She says "I want a boyfriend, someone to eat ice cream with and watch television, or walk home from the mall with" she really wrote my whole relationship into a song

A month later this song remains a highlight of Blue Banisters and an absolutely monumental track in her discography :true::wowcry:

 

This.

The wordplay at the end “Your interest really made stacks out of it” is so great, like how credit cards have interest over time and their interest in her. Double meaning

So the karmic lineage thing- that's about her family having a history with owning people as slaves or something was it? Im not sure if lana has really stated that or just implied. 

I wonder if it was on her mother's side or if indeed it has anything to do with her not liking her mother. 

If anyone knows a bit more about it, please do spill! (In an informative way, not a gossip way)

Thanks! I was there for the whole livestream, and she seemed pretty reserved to say more details. I wondered if she had said anything else about it.
