Lorde - Glory and gore

there's a humming in the restless summer air,
and we're slipping of the course that we prepared.
but in all chaos there is calculation,
dropping glass just to hear them break
you've been drinking like the world was gonna end
it didn't
took a shiner from the fist of your best friend
go figure
it's clear that someone's gotta go
I mean it, but I promise we're not mean.

and the cry goes out
they lose their minds for us
and how it plays out
now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

you can try and take us
but we're the gladiators
every one a rager
but secretly they're saviors
glory and gore go hand in hand
that's why we're making headlines
you can try and take us
but victory is contagious

delicate in every way but one
the sword play
god knows we like archiac kinds of fun
the old way
change is the only way I play with, baby
we let our battle choose us


and the cry goes out
they lose their minds for us
and how it plays out
now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

you can try and take us
but we're the gladiators
every one a rager
but secretly they're saviors
glory and gore go hand in hand
that's why we're making headlines
you can try and take us
but victory is contagious

no one 'round here is good at keeping their eyes closed
the sun's starting to light up when we're walking home
tired little laughs, gold lie promises
we'll always win at this
I don't ever think about dead
it's alright if you do, it's fine
we gladiate but I guess we're really finding ourselfs
roughing up our minds so we're ready when the killtime comes
wide awake in bed, words in my brain:
secretly you love this do you even wanna go free?
let me in the ring, I'll show you what that big word means

you can try and take us
but we're the gladiators
every one a rager
but secretly they're saviors
glory and gore go hand in hand
that's why we're making headlines
you can try and take us
but victory is contagious
