Cruel
St. Vincent Lyrics


Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?

Forgive the kids, for they don't know how to live
Run the alleys casually cruel
Cruel, oh

Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?
For you could want that, too
They could take or leave you
So they took you, and they left you
How could they be casually cruel?
Cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?
If you could want that too, then you'll be happy

You were the one waving flares in the air so they could see you
And they were a zephyr, blowing past ya
Blowing fastly so they can't see ya
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?
Forgive the kids, for they don't know how to live
Run the alleys casually cruel
Cruel, cruel

Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?
For you could want that, too
They could take or leave you
So they took you, and they left you
How could they be casually cruel?
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

Bodies, can't you see what everybody wants from you?
If you could want that, too, then you'll be happy

You were the one waving flares in the air so they could see you
And they were a zephyr, blowing past ya, blowing fastly so they can see ya
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

I love how she is literally kidnapped and enslaved by a man and his two demented children, and she only looks mildly annoyed by it.

Send me your location

Enslaved for bringing the dish does that mean all women before the modern world were slave's ??

Maybe that's the point. Motherhood?

@kidkruschev I think it could be seen as anyone being forced into roles by society. It's not like men aren't seen as disposable.

@Angela Kartolína Luntian she dated Cara Delevingne. 'St. Vincent will love Cara Delevingne "forever"' https://home.nzcity.co.nz/news/article.aspx?id=270372 on that same interview she explains though that she doesn't date exclusively women but likes both men and women.

Favorite part of this video is definitely her playing the solo in the trunk. probably shouldn't be an lol moment but i chuckle every time.

beetles1964

I was just thinking the exact same thing

It's totally supposed to be an lol moment. The entire video is an lol moment. St. Vincent has very dark humor.

Leemythic

I see that part aging well in the future
