Lyrics to "Glory and Gore" by Lorde
WRITTEN LYRICS:


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 didn't)
Took a shiner from the fist of your best friend (go figure)
It's clear that someone's gotta go
We 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
Everyone a rager
But secretly they're saviors
Glory and gore go hand and hand
That's why we're making headlines
You can try and take us
But victory's contagious

Delicate in every way but one (the swordplay)
God know's we like archaic kinds of fun (the old way)
Chance is the only game I play with, baby
We let our battle choose us

[Chorus]

No one 'round here's 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 thing 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 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

[Chorus]
