Why do people feel personally attacked by this thread? :awkney:

Anyway, Lorde remains unbothered and as good as ever.

Pretty soon I'll be getting on my first plane
I'll see the veins of my city like they do in space
But my head's filling up fast with the wicked games, up in flames.

I mean, I you can think or say whatever your want but you can deny that Lorde wrote Pure Heroine as a teen. Meanwhile, some other artsts wrote things like bluffin with my muffin and such things.

By far the best songwriter of this generation. 

Bryoncé, Lorde, Rihanna, Arianna, SZA, and the list goes on

She is literally is a breath of fresh air in today's music.

I love it when artists write lyrics and songs so good you think "how?"

Hello Mr. Officer
We're just having fun,
You can take the handcuffs off
I promise we won't run...
Speed boats and Versace coats,
An olive in my glass...
Jail bird scars and gold tooth smiles.
They love my rich girl class.
You took away our money
But you'll never take away our love,
And we'll never go to heaven
But who needs to when you live this good?

'Cause men will fight
And girls will lie,
Just like on the television
So don't tell us
That this ain't right,
It's just like on the television
The silence
The violence
We don't need to be forgiven
Your business
Go mind it
Cause this ain't ****ing Jerry Springer
We say our lines,
We do the time,
We're just like on the television...
Television

If I paint my sins white
Will it make me pure again?
If I wet my mascara eyes
Will the witness be my friend?
Nicotine and low life dreams
Have never felt so warm
When your father's on the bottle
And your mother's on the floor...
Got the whole town looking through our window
Every day of the week.
On the run, **** the fun
No this isn't like the movies scenes...

'Cause men will fight
And girls will lie,
Just like on the television
So don't tell us
That this ain't right,
It's just like on the television
The silence
The violence
We don't need to be forgiven
Your business
Go mind it
Cause this ain't ****ing Jerry Springer
We say our lines,
We do the time,
We're just like on the television...
Television

"Bad mistakes and good intentions"
Ain't what they're saying about us in the papers...
Fast forward? No. Can't change the station.
If it's 7 years, then 7 years I'm waiting for you...

Where I'm from
It all goes wrong,
It's not like on the television
The darkest days
Don't fade away,
Can't turn it off like television-
They laugh and they wave,
Behind the glass they're there to stay...
But our script, it don't fit,
You know bad guy always pays.
Now I'm alone.
There's no one home.
So I turn on my television.

Take notes, Lorde

I love this line so much omg :diane:

Now bring my boys in
Their skin in craters like the moon
The moon we love like a brother, while he glows through the room

She has good lyrics? Yeah. But maybe that's because they are poetry-like. I'm not acting like I'm hurt but Gaga has a different "sense" in lyrics which's rhythmical, more like a musical than written poetry. Both Lorde and Gaga are amazing songwriters. And I feel Gaga's songwriting skills are pretty underrated by our fanbase. But yes again Lorde is THAT artist

Listen to this: http://www.wtfpod.com/podcast/episode-844-lorde

The entire podcast is worth a listen (I can listen to her talk about her craft for hours like Gaga) but that lyric is actually mentioned, along with the curious rules in pop music songwriting, at 45:00 onwards.
