the hounds - a metaphor for Lorde’s vindictive, vicious side. While she doesn’t like to show that side of her often, but she will if she needs to
the call out - an occasion when someone is asked to come to a person's home or to a particular place in order to do a job, help someone
a finery - beautiful clothing and jewellery worn on a special occasion
a hundred jewels on throats//a hundred jewels between teeth - a reference to jewel encrusted grills that rappers often wear or reference to braces which have joints that could be mistaken for jewels. Lorde tries to make her situation more glamorous by romanticizing the little that they have
their skin in craters like the moon - pimply teenage boys
the comatose - very tired or in a deep sleep because of extreme tiredness, hard work, or too much alcohol

we're on each other's team - being on a team represents trusting everyone else in it completely and working together
I'm kind of over gettin' told to throw my hands up in the air - it's about most of the popular songs being played that are all about clubbing and partying. Most of them even do say, "put your hands in the air". It gets boring
shards - a piece of a broken glass, cup, container, or similar object
revel - taking pleasure in something
