Swingin Party Lyrics
Here it's never endin', can't remember when it started
Pass around the lampshade, there'll be plenty enough room in jail
If bein' wrong's a crime, I'm serving forever
If bein' strong's...
anonymous Mar 9th, 3:22pm report
Lorde talks about doing things wrong "If being wrong is a crime..." "If being afraid is a crime...". Then she talks about the consequences "Then I'm serving for ever..." She went to jail. "We hang side by side..." I think this means they were hung and killed. "At the swinging party down the line" they are being hung and punished. I think this song might be about world war 1 because she sings "I need help here with this feather", in WW1 the white feather represented the men who were to much of cowards to be in the war, it was kind of like a shame. I think that the people she's singing about were too afraid to be in the war and are now being punished. I don't know what the "Bring your lampshade..." means, I'm guessing that they are trying to hide or blend in.
