Lust For Life - Pre-Release Thread

Recommended Posts

The album dropped on iTunes around 4am in NZ and I'm trying to get over jet lag after flying from Africa yesterday, so it helped to lie restlessly in bed with my cat and listen to this masterpiece album. Some songs still growing on me but this is so much better and more cohesive than expected! LOVE IT

Ive realized that mostly everyone puts the ballads at the top of their rank and the ones with energy at the bottom. Yall really wanted HM 2.0 didnt yall?

 

 

Save for a few songs I hate honeymoon with a fiery passion, as far as I'm concerned LFL is everything HM should have been  :flutter: queen of correcting her mistakes

their voices together are so perfect too I was the most worried for this collab becasuse I don't like sean's solo stuff but his voice is beautiful on this song and harmonising with lana is fucking amazing

now we just need a FJM collab single in november please sis

I think the central theme is chaos, and the yearning to escape from chaos?

 

The chorus mentions a loved one who's life got messed up because of drugs and they had to be sent away to hopefully get "okay", and the different/altered chorus is about Lana escaping the country and her relationship with her "old man" as well as using medications to escape her own thoughts.

 

The verses she mentions how the streets are full of "soft decay" and how life sometimes stops her from being able to dream.

And then of course are the Manson references, how he can still be felt in the air, and how Lana wants to escape but she can't, she knows she'll stay another year because she's lost and/or stuck in a rut? 

But then comes that "marzipan" chorus and she finally does leave, hoping when she returns she'll have really changed....

 

And there's more chaos in the bridge with it being hot even in winter, and how the weather "made these kids go crazy",  writing with blood on the walls etc

 

And her final line is "I'd be lyin if I said I wasn't sick of it"

 

So yeah, that's my personal interpretation, the song has lots of little narratives woven into it but overall I personally think it's about the desire to escape chaos...

 

Again, this is just MY personal interpretation, everyone is welcome to think otherwise of course, I'm not trying to say that this IS exactly what the song is about, just my thoughts!  :kiss:
