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
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 as laughter, blowing past ya,
Blowing fastly so they can see ya
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh
Cruel, cruel, oh

I was abused as a child, and the line "they could take or leave you, so they took you, and they left you." Always makes me cry. I understand that verse so much.

I love how this song and video is a metaphor for being psychologically trapped or restrained by society only for it to have been a waste of time and yourself. By falling prey to the family here and being brainwashed over time only to not meet their demands, she was thrown away by it.

The point is that it is cruel to not let people be who they are.

Thank you, the song is much more deeper than some ''female oppression'' that many snowflakes are talking about... It's about much more than that...

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.
