Dropping glasses just to hear them break
- In a literal sense, in the suburbs people generally have a large amount of excess cash. This means that they can buy things simply for the sake of doing so. Contrastingly, in Lorde’s case, she can break things simply because she wants to. They can be replaced so easily so Lorde has never learned a sense of responsibility.
- On a metaphorical plain, the chaos mentioned previously reveals that Lorde is simply causing havoc for the thrill of it. She can only get thrills now at the expense of causing drama for others.
Be prepared for the upcoming storm.
