Lorde- Team

I love Lorde. And I’m kind of thrilled. Lorde, Imagine Dragons, Muse, Of Monsters and Men- all get played on the radio pretty frequently. Regardless of who else likes them or doesn’t- their lyrics and music impress me a lot. This may not seem like a big deal to most people, but this is the first time in my life that music I like is popular.

As in- it’s ok to think that I don’t have to feel spasms of guilt and fear of hell because I think something ‘worldly’ is awesome. And for the first time in my life that it’s ok to think that there are maybe a lot of people who like halfway descent things- and that maybe the majority of mankind isn’t an crawling mass of evil on a slow slide to hell.

Have I fallen prey to pop music? Have I left the Christian Music Ghetto only to stumble into another? I don’t know. All I know is that this sounds like it would qualify as at least a ‘bad’ ‘good’ poem if it were in a snobby literary magazine or whatever. Except- then you couldn’t dance to it.

“Wait ’til you’re announced
We’ve not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness
That you’ll send the call out
(Send the call out)

Call all the ladies out
They’re in their finery
A hundred jewels on throats
A hundred jewels between teeth
Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother
While he glows through the room

Dancin’ around the lies we tell
Dancin’ around big eyes as well
Even the comatose they don’t dance and tell

I’m kind of over getting told
to throw my hands up in the air
So there
I’m kinda older than I was
when I reveled without a care
So there

We live in cities you’ll never see on screen
Not very pretty, but we sure know how to run things
Living in ruins of the palace within my dreams
And you know, we’re on each other’s team
We’re on each other’s team
And you know, we’re on each other’s team
We’re on each other’s team
And you know, and you know, and you know”

Maybe I’m just infatuated. But I don’t really care.

So there. 🙂

  1. I think it’s pretty dope(cool) how Lorde signed her record deal on her 17th birthday and the dopest part about it is her parents are monitoring her money so she won’t just blow it on teenage things that she likes for the moment. I wouldn’t have started listening to her music it if wasn’t for the song “Royals” and now I’m a bit of a fan !
