Lorde: Team Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2013
We've not yet lost all our graces
The hounds will stay in chains
Look upon your greatness and she'll send the call out
Send the call out
Call all the ladies out, they're in their finery
A hundred jewels on...

Lorde is suggesting that you pick your battles. Why compete for a love you won’t receive? The effort will never satisfy the desire, so the end never justifies the means. We might all fight for things that are futile in life, despite knowing better. But you can survive such situations when you have your team behind you and supporting you. She is indicating that rebellion is no longer reserved as the war or the battle of youth, and as you get older and care more about things, there is more at stake when you take a stand. So choose your battles wisely. Lorde thinks it’s better to be poor and beautiful (on the inside and outside) than rich and hollow. Lorde has referenced this before, and she’s proud of where she is from. After all, it’s better to be in chains with friends than in a garden with strangers, right? Right.

It's about hanging out with malcontents who are worth something to each other.
