    The beginning reminds me of a goo goo dolls song, all of the guitar sounds do actually, so i love it even more
    Brings back memories of laying in the grass staring at the sky trying to find familar shapes in the clouds as they roll by, in my grandmas backyard in central Florida. When she died most of the land was sold off and is now a mini mall and a housing development. Exit 55 on i4, when i drive by i remember all the fun i had there growing up, now theyre some of my most beloved memories, buried beneath homes and a golf course 🙏💗 🙏
    💗u grimes 🙏💗🌈

    The story behind the song makes her frustration all the more palpable at 2:44 as she slouches in the throne with her hand over her face.

    Lying so awake
    Things I can´t escape
    Lately, i just turn ´em into demons
    Flew into the sun
    Fucking heroin
    Lately, i just turn ´em into reasons
    and excuses
    Always down when i´m not up
    Guess it´s just my rotten luck
    To fill my time with permanent blue
    But i cant´t see above it
    Guess I fucking love it
    But oh,
    I didn´t mean to
    I see everything I see everything
    Don´t you tell me now that I don´t want it
    But I did everything I did everything
    More lines on the mirror than a sonnet
    Funny how they think
    Us naive when we´re on the brink
    Innocence was fleeting like a season
    Cannot comprehend
    Lost so many men
    Lately, all their ghosts turn into reasons
    And excuses

    The bravery Grimes shows here coming out from behind the protective shield of her usual heavy use of vocal effects results in one of her most beautiful and accessible songs. BRAVO GRIMES!

    Vocals too low. Her voice gets drowned out by the music a bit.
