Lyrically, Mitski wavers between gorgeous lines that read like sterling prose ("If your hands need to break/ More than trinkets in the room/ You can lean on my arm/ As you break my heart," goes one passage) and more violent asides that could've been scratched out with bone and blood (on "Townie" she sings of holding her breath with a baseball bat). The music walks a similar line, flitting from tender acoustic moments to frazzled bursts of jagged guitar noise.
