Lana Del Rey, known for haunting, dramatic, dreamy ballads like “Born to Die” and “Ultraviolence” just released the video for her song from the album of the same title, “Honeymoon.”

With soaring violins and Rey’s achingly beautiful voice crooning lyrics like “There are violets in your eyes; There are guns that blaze around you,” the singer remains true to form, and to the themes her fans have come to expect. Watch the video, which features the artist lying in the grass near a busy road, before cutting to a pink screen with lyrics imprinted over it. (Some are calling the video an “ironic meta-meme”)

Lyrics:

We both know that it's not fashionable to love me

But you don't go cause truly there's nobody for you but me

We could cruise to the blues

Wilshire Boulevard if we choose

Or whatever you want to do

We make the rules

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Say you want me too

Say you want me too

Dark blue

Dark blue

We both know the history of violence that surrounds you

But I'm not scared, there's nothing to lose now that I've found you

We could cruise to the news

Pico blvd in you used little bullet car if we choose

Mr. Born to lose

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Say you want me too

Say you want me too

Dark blue

Dark blue

There are violets in your eyes

There are guns that blaze around you

There are roses in between my thighs and fire that surrounds you

It's no wonder every man in town had neither fought nor found you

Everything you do is elusive to even your honey dew

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Our honeymoon

Dreaming away your life

Dreaming away your life

Dreaming away your life
