A cottagecore retro vibe is what this song is made of. The beauty of nature, life, and how it is intertwined with the human conscience is the major theme of this song. Lana Del Rey is known for her over-the-top eccentric visual to extravagantly relay her message in the signature style of Lana Del Rey’s lyrics and video.
LDR thrives in the Indie pop genre. The diversity in her girlfriends, the late-night country clubs, meeting strangers, and never giving up on a teenage dream to the adult, everything chaotic is beautifully revealed through the lyrics of Chemtrails over the country club.
The symbolism of the sun and moon signs
“My moon's in Leo, my Cancer is sun
You won't play, you're no fun
Well, I don't care what they think
Drag racing my little red sports car
I'm not unhinged or unhappy, I'm just wild”
LDR with her lyrics sings the spiritual wildness in the young spirit of an impulsive lover. Not caring what society thinks, she wants to be herself on the run with her ‘sweet lover’. The impulse of lovers when they elope to find a peaceful and chaotic memory in their togetherness is portrayed in the next randomly spun lines.
They move from laughing at elementary school to growing up to be more mature yet the lovers are still strange and wild inside their hearts. The significance of the Leo moon and Cancer sun is the indication of a dynamic and creative persona which LDR suggests that she has, and she finds creative and dynamic ways to love and live her life as a free and wild woman.
The climax of Chemtrails over the country club
“You’re in the wind, I’m in the water
Nobody’s son, nobody’s daughter”
They’re watching the chemtrails over the country club, being by themselves, losing their identities, and are just wild lovers on the run. The song throughout has new cliffhangers of random activities of the lovers, now that they are free of any filial bonds, they are free like the wild dandelions moving along with the time as it pleases.
The last stanza is the third phase of the lovers when they have settled and are leading the mediocre and settled spousal life with their kids playing under the chemtrails over the country club.
The place holds the memories of their wildest journeys and memories interspersed with their growth, yet the lover is saying she is not giving up on their wildness and impulse that she loves her partner and wants to go down the trip of impulsive decisions again.
