"Get Free" as written by and Elizabeth Woolridge Grant....
Finally, I'm crossing the threshold
From the ordinary world
To the reveal of my heart
Undoubtedly, that will for certain
Take the dead out of the sea
And the darkness from the arts

This is my commitment (ah)
My modern manifesto (ah)
I'm doing it for all of us (ah)
Who never got the chance
For a handful
And all my birds of paradise
Who never got to fly at night
'Cause they were caught up in the dens

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
I want to get off but I keep riding the ride
I never really notice that I had to decide
To play someone's game or to live my own life and now I do
I want to move
Out of the black (out of the black)
Into to the blue (into the blue)

Finally
Gone is the burden
Of the crawling way of being
That comes from energies combined
Like my part was I
Was not discerning
And knew as we found out
We're not in your right mind

There's no more chasing rainbows (ah)
And hoping for an end to them (ah)
Their arches are illusions (ah)
Solid at first glance
But then you try to touch them
There's nothing to hold on to
The colors used to lure you in
And put you in a trance
(Yeah)

Sometimes it feels like I've got a war in my mind
I want to get off but I keep riding the ride
I never really notice that I had to decide
To play someone's game or to live my own life and now I do
I want to move
Out of the black (out of the black)
Into the blue (into the blue)
Out of the black (out of the black)
Into the blue (into the blue)
Out of the black (out of the black)
Into the blue (into the blue)

    My InterpretationI think this song is about how Lana is finally becoming happy with her life. Notice in the song she sings, "sometimes I feel like I've got a war in my mind" which was a line from her song Ride, which was about trying to not let her lonely life get her down so she just goes with life and rides. In this song, she sings about how she had to play someone's game or live her own life which I think means people thought her depression and loneliness wasn't real and her life was perfect from everyone who viewed her that way. In Get Free, she's singing about fighting her demons inside and becoming free and happy.

    My InterpretationThis song is pretty much a sequel to Ride, a song from Lana's second album, which which was a song about following people along for their own rides, doing what THEY want to do, becoming absorbed in someone else's lifestyle. In Get Free, she becomes content with being alone and having time to herself. She knows that sometimes life isn't always what she's going to want and she's finally accepted that things aren't always going to go her way.

    General CommentPoints to Lova & Goddess, I agree with both of their interpretations. Definitely a sequel to Ride. Her life has changed, she's learned and moved on from her past. She's recognized certain people or lifestyle choices are not what she wants for her future. She's finally free. It's such a beautiful song.
