Lana's Best Lyrics

Recommended Posts

So i was fighting with this old Bandwagoner today, (The Fight is still going on) and he started to say that Lana's Lyrics are SHIT.

 

Now i think we can all agree that Lana's lyrics are sometimes (and sometimes most of the time) amazing. And the critics agree with us. What are Lana's BEST lyrics?

I paint the sky black
You said if you could have your way, you’d make it nighttime all the day
So it’d suit the mood of your soul

 

The sway of the hips and arms
Will cradle you from afar
They swing 'til you're tired and send you to Mars
Night time is almost ours

 

Cigarettes and robitussin
Will I ever get to heaven?
It's not looking good now

 

I am my only God

 

Strangled up in ivy
I’m the garden of Eden Lady Liberty

 

They say I'm wasting time, they said that I'm no good
Summer of my life, not doing what I should
Call me poison ivy 'cause I'm far from good
But pretty from afar, like a dark star

 

It’s been so long since someone made me different

 

Loving you isn’t right
Black leather, moonlight
Loving you isn’t right
It’s original sin

 

A man who makes a beast out of himself got nothing to lose
Sold my soul long ago with nothing left to choose
I’m tired, tired of singing the blues

 

Don't fuck with me

You're not a gangsta like I am

 

 

GOSPEL, I tell you :crying4:

Does anyone else find that often Lana's not so good or more boring songs have the best lyrics? I think it's because it's difficult to multitask on making a good tune etc as well as making it good lyrically. For instant, everyone knows Pawn Shop Blues is a lyrical masterpiece but it's also my least favourite on the album.

Plus, Sirens is her worse album (you can't deny it, I love it but that's literally a fact) however, for me, it's her best album lyrically and if the poetry was lame, I wouldn't love it the way I do.

Well, I find it weird that freaking Gods and Monsters wasn't mentioned in every comment yet.... :hooker: (seriously wtf, or am I delusional and I only imagined that 95% of the fanbase is in love with those lyrics)

 

But the very best verse, I think is from LGOE, it's just so beautiful.

"Chariots are gold,
I sit, sipping cherry cola,
Caesar says he’d fall in love with me, if I was older.
I hold all the Mexico and I got my own roller coaster,
Sometimes I get lonely, millions can hold me now."

 

I mean come on, how wonderful is that :defeated:

I think what you mean is that sometimes there is more emphasis on the words than the sound, but I wouldn't go that far.

BTD and Video Games both have amazing lyrics and they also sound amazing for example

I love the song, but the lyrics are so clichéd that I cringe a little just thinking about them tbh.

Songs as a whole:

  1. Carmen
  2. Off to the Races
  3. Disco
  4. Elvis
  5. Children of the Bad Revolution 

Single lines:

  1. I know a way to make gold, by making our souls to escape reality.
  2. There's no remedy for memory, your face is like a melody, it won't leave my head. Your soul is haunting me and telling me that everything is fine.
  3. Mon Amour, sweet child of mine, you're divine. Didn't anyone ever tell you it's okay to shine?
  4. Buy my purple wig, for my mermaid video. Walk back to where I live in my motel on Neptune Avenue.
  5. Overdose and dying, on our drugs, and our love, and our dreams, and our rage.

Not really my top 5, too hard to narrow it down to that...but just some I really love.

"I'm diggable, predicatable

No, everyone knows all my people
I’ll give you a fistful
You know you’ll be in a fight
Unmissable, invincible
Behavior is despicable
If you’re lookin’ for fun you can come out with me tonight"

You know sometimes I think God's
Playing a little game with me
Looking down from heaven, laughing
Trying to see how much I can take
Because the way things go, it's like a joke
Nobody's had more shots at the moon and missed than me


Long hair, Lana that's my bitch
