#1 Chandelier (1000 Forms of Fear), 2014

We're just animals, still learning how to crawl.
Chandelier
Artist: Sia
Album: 1000 Forms of Fear






Glossary:

Party girls don't get hurt - the alcohol shield / IDGAF-barrier makes the party girl immune to feeling anything real… or at least until it wears off. Alcohol actually does have a numbing effect on the body, and was often used as an anesthetic in the past because it depresses the central nervous system.
I push it down, push it down - supression of fear through self medication
Throw 'em back till I lose count - it would take about 4 shots within an hour for someone the size of Sia to get drunk enough to actually start forgetting things, but one thing is for certain: She’s going to party very hard tonight. We have no information on whether she – like Nicki Minaj – is able to keep count of her money.
swing from the chandelier - taking the meaning of “life of the party” to a whole new level
Won't look down, won't open my eyes - she may be drinking herself to death but she also “won’t look down”; even if she knows the possible consequences of what she’s doing, she’s determined to ignore them for one night.
Sun is up, I'm a mess - Sia wakes up with a hangover, everything arounds her make her feel uncomfortable, that’s why she needs to get out and run from the place she woke up to forget what happened.
