I hear the birds on the summer breeze, I drive fast
Lana isn’t stopping savour every moment in life, she’s living completely in the moment. It becomes that she is in the relationship for the brief it brings, knowing full well that it will end in a crash.
Her recklessness contrast to the birds she sees as she speeds through the streets. The birds are calm and natural which, slightly aids her to slow down and actually think for once.
Lana has stated in an interview she find driving incredibly cleansing.
