Gods and Monsters Lyrics

In the land of gods and monsters
I was an angel
Living in the garden of evil
Screwed up scared
Doing anything that I needed
Shining like a firery beacon

You've got that medicine I need
Fame liquor love
Give it to me slowly
Put your...

    Perhaps Im a bit obsessed with God but it sounds like she is singing about the fall of Satan, who was God’s most beautiful and perfect creation: “I was an angel....screwed up.... shining like a firery beacon”
    - satan was the first fallen angel, associated with fire, malice and fear.

    Satan envied man and the free will God gave to them:
    “ You've got that medicine I need
    Fame liquor love
    Give it to me slowly”
    “I dont really want to know what’s good for me... God’s dead...”

    he was the angel of music and rebellion
    “ we dont get along so now I sing...”

    He was evicted from heaven
    “Headed for a fucked up holiday”
    This is heaven, what I really want- (satan wants fame, liquor, dope and sexual immorality (“put your hands on my waist...”), (“dope shoot it up to the heart...” “living like James Morrison” which could also refer to death/not receiving eternal life )

    “Innocence lost...” he was God’s favorite and was charged to watch over God)

    There are a few more but you get the picture...

    The more we deny that we have a dark side, the more power it has over us. Lana del Rey depicts the dark side showing that she’s not afraid of god and losing her soul. She’s fallen in love with the idea of fame, liquor and love.
    She invites her urges and focuses on her desires by losing her innocence, showing that she simply doesn’t care.

    This song speaks nothing against God, The land of God and monsters is metaphor for Hollywood, and the angel who was innocent is about a girl who got corrupted in the world, just like Jim Morrison had... This is just saying that even angels can get influenced in Hollywood. God is a word to define a devine being, God is not subjected to only Allah or The father of Christ.
