"Biting Down" as written by Joel Little and Ella Yelich-o'connor....
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down

Skip a hit, don't make a sound
It feels better biting down

Breathed so deep I thought I'd drown
It feels better biting down

Listen to the beats resound
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down

It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down

Skip a hit, don't make a sound
It feels better biting down

Breathed so deep I thought I'd drown
It feels better biting down

Listen to the beats resound
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down

The electronics of your heart
See how fast they fall apart
It feels better biting down

The electronics of your heart
See how fast they fall apart
It feels better biting down
It feels better biting down

Skip a hit, don't make a sound
It feels better biting down

    My OpinionI thought this song is about rape, its easier to get through it if you bite down on the pillow.

    Song MeaningActually I was reading an interview on Rookie (rookiemag.com/2014/01/lorde-interview/6/), and Lorde says that '...“biting down” was small moments of intensity that help you understand something greater, whether that be intense pain or shock or even being super cold or something. Sometimes those things, whether or not they’re pleasant can really tell you something about yourself or what you’re feeling. So that’s what that song was about for me.'. On the other hand I really like the interpretation of it as ecstasy because that would be a really witty reference.

    Is it weird that I originally interpreted it as purposefully giving someone a really bad blowjob? lol

    General CommentIt's a medical procedure such as an MRI. They sound like the main rhythm.
