Lana Del Ray track listing
"Queen of the Gas Station"

"Kill Kill" (also known as "Florida Dark" or originally "The Ocean") is a song written by Lana Del Rey and produced by David Kahne, serving as the opening track from her debut album, Lana Del Ray.

BackgroundEdit

"Kill Kill" was recorded sometime during 2007 in a studio located at 12 West, 37th Street, 4th Floor, New York City. The song was recorded during the same time that the rest of her album had been recorded.

The original demo of the song was called "The Ocean".[1] A snippet of the original version leaked on December 4, 2016, and on December 5, 2016, the full track leaked. On July 5, 2017, the unmastered version of the song leaked.

CompositionEdit

The lyrics of "Kill Kill" were written by Grant while the production was handled by David Kahne. The song speaks about a relationship where Del Rey is "in love with a dying man". The original title for the song was "The Ocean", but the producer of the song, Kahne, found that title boring and told Grant to change it. Grant, while angry, crossed out the title with x's and wrote "kill kill". That title soon became the name of the song and later her debut EP.

Background and description Edit

A music video featuring old clips of people surfing, old fashioned cars, and people on the beach in California were cut together by Grant along with several scenes of Grant covered in an American flag with a Marilyn Monroe-like hairstyle, another with flowers in her hair in front of floral pattern, and one with Grant wearing a simple strap dress with another Marilyn Monroe hairstyles. The clips of Grant feature her mouthing the words to the song in home videos. Grant removed the video but it was leaked somehow after she had established herself as Lana Del Rey along with plenty of other videos for songs off of her album. A second official version is available on YouTube and it features similar scenes from the first video but also adds new Grant scenes and clips with the ocean. This version is slightly longer than the previous one.

LyricsEdit

Album versionEdit

Bound up the stairs, I'm in the shower
Do you know I am going to leave you?
Do you know I am going to leave you?

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love, lying in the sand
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can

Tell me about Ray and his girl
Do I know Ray is going to meet you?
Love you, I do, stay here, I won't
As stars fade from your eyes

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love, lying in the sand
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can

One, two, make it fun
Don't trust anyone
One, two, make it fun
Don't trust anyone

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can

One, two, make it fun
Don't trust anyone
One, two, make it fun
Make it fun, make it fun

"The Ocean" demo versionEdit

Bound up the stairs, I'm in the shower
Do you know I am going to leave you?
Fresh from the shore, blonde hair is wide
The ocean makes me cry

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love, lying in the sand
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can

Tell me about Ray and his girl
Did I know Ray is going to meet you?
Love you, I do, stay here, I won't
As stars fade from your eyes

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love, lying in the sand
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can

One, two, make it fun
Don't trust anyone
One, two, make it fun
Don't trust anyone

I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
I have done everything I can
I'm in love with a dying man
I'm in love with a dying man
