Lorde - Glory And Gore

Your rating:
There's a humming in the restless summer air
And we're slipping off the course that we prepared
But in all chaos there is calculation
Dropping glasses just to hear them break

You've been drinking like the world was gonna end (it's ending)
Took a shiner from the fist of your best friend (go figure)
It's clear that's someone's gotta go home
We mean it but I promise we're not mean

And the crowd goes loud
They lose their minds for us
And how it plays out
Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but we're the gladiators
Ah, ah, everyone a ranger
Oh, oh, but secretly they're saviors

Glory and gore go hand in hand
That's why we're making headlines

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but victory's contagious

Tell a kid in every way but one (the swordplay)
God knows we like our archaic kinds of fun (the old way)
Chance is the only game I play with baby
We let our battles choose us

And the crowd goes loud
They lose their minds for us
And how it plays out
Now we're in the ring and we're coming for blood

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but we're the gladiators
Ah, ah, everyone a ranger
Oh, oh, but secretly they're saviors

Glory and gore go hand in hand
That's why we're making headlines

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but victory's contagious

No one 'round here's good at keeping their eyes closed
The sun starting to light up when we're walking home
Tired little laughs, gold light promises, we'll always win at this
I don't ever think about death

It's alright if you do, it's fine

We gladiate but I guess we're really fighting ourselves
Roughing up our minds so we're ready when the kill time 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

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but we're the gladiators
Ah, ah, everyone a ranger
Oh, oh, but secretly they're saviors

Glory and gore go hand in hand
That's why we're making headlines

Ah, ah, you can try and take us
Oh, oh, but victory's contagious
