We don't care, we're driving Cadillacs in our dreams
This also doubles as the tagline for Lorde’s Tumblr and pretty much details Lorde’s whole philosophy in life.
People like Lorde that don’t want to be “royals” , they are perfectly content with having crazy dreams and fantasies that could never conceivably be achieved.
However, Lorde doesn’t care that she will never be this rich, she’s perfectly happy with simply keeping these material desires in her dreams. Meaning that she can actually lead a fulfilling life that centres around what she wants, not what society dictates.
