It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us
We crave a different kind of buzz

from Lorde – Royals Lyrics on Rap Genius


Double Meaning

Lux is a reference to the previous track on Pure Heroine called “400 lux”. However, the meaning of lux is ambiguous

Lorde does not crave royal privileges such as being famous and celebrated, she wants the buzz of living a thrilling life. Yet Lorde does not think that this comes from the gold teeth and grey goose either.
