So all the cups got broke
Shards beneath our feet
But it wasn't my fault

from Lorde – Team Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Things got wild at the party and Lorde inevitably broke glass. Yet she’s pinning it on some of her guests to avoid the blame.

Inferring from previous interviews, this might be another “inspired by a true story” moment from the life of Lorde.

Lorde often uses glasses as a metaphor. This parallel reveals how Lorde simply breaks thing simply because she can and to cause chaos — she loves stirring the pot.
