I was wondering if Lana del Rey, the Nancy Sinatra of the XXI with a well studied retro style, would make it for a second decent album after her successful debut. But If you have a tendency to melancholy Ultraviolence won´t disappoint you. You might want to cut your veins after listening to the album though…
However, if you were not a fan of her before, then don´t even bother.
I saw my old friend Gabriel | Down the perimeter ringing the bell | I said hello | Hey man is there something wrong? | Where has everybody gone? | I don’t know | Well I put my hand across my mouth | And I went out, moving slow | What are you doing he said to me | I’m looking for my company | He said don’t bother no
Next thing you know I took a look | Gabe was trying to sell me a book | But i got no dough | He said check it out it’s going cheap| Check it out it’s going cheap | Ok I’ll give it a go | I read that book every page | And then I put it away | Said I don’t think so | It makes slaves of all of womenkind | And corpses of the men | And I just don’t know | And we care a little bit | We get scared a little bit | OÃ° those two cold dead eyes | That stare a little a bit | And we cry a little bit | And we get by a little bit | Let your tears | All come falling down | Put me on a big white steed! | Ride it it up and down your street! | Wrapped up in a crimson coat! | Sail me in a great big boat! | I’ll sail around the waters for you | Kill your sons and daughters for you!| Put me on a big white horse! | Send me down to Banbury Cross! | It’s okay Joe it’s time to go!
