Figuring out Lorde’s Christian Roots Part 14 (UPDATED)

Figuring out Lorde’s Christian Roots Part 14

UPDATED (David Bruce commented “She didn’t say she was a big Jesus believer. She said she was a big Yeezus believer. Which is a Kanye West album. Which incidentally is a blasphemous, hateful piece of garbage from what I’ve heard of it.” This sets me straight concerning what Lorde said in the video that I saw. She did not say that she was a “big Jesus believer.” )


It is hard to figure out this New Zealand newcomer and her Christian roots but I am going to attempt to in this series of posts. Here is an interview where she describes herself as a “big Jesus believer.

One way to get a better idea about a person is to take a closer look at their lyrics. Here is a discussion about one of Lorde’s songs that I really like, but I don’t understand why she has to curse in this song. It was not necessary!!!

STILL SANE

Today is my birthday
And I’m riding high
Hair is dripping,
Hiding that I’m terrified
But this is summer,
Playing dumber than in fall
Everything I say falls right back
Into everything I’m not
In the swing of things
But what I really mean is
Not in the swing of things yet

Riding around on the bikes,
We’re still sane
I won’t be her,
Tripping over onstage
Hey, it’s all cool
I still like hotels
But I think that’ll change
Still like hotels
And my newfound fame
Hey, promise I can stay good

Everything feels right
Chase paper, get by

I’m little
But I’m coming for the crown
I’m little
But I’m coming for you
I’m little
But I’m coming for the title
Geld by everyone who’s up

All work and no play
Never made me lose it
All business all day
Keeps me up a level
All work and no play
Keeps me on the new s#%$
Yeah

All work and no play,
Lemme count the bruises
All business all day
Keeps me up a level
All work and no play
Lonely on that new s#@$
Yeah

Only bad people live to see
Their likeness set in stone
What does that make me

I’m not in the swing of things
But what I really mean is
Not in the swing of things yet (x2)

All work and no play
Never made me lose it
All business all day
Keeps me up a level
All work and no play
Keeps me on the new s#@%
Yeah
