Song Lyrics

I just do not understand song lyrics these days.

Maybe I'm the only one or I just don't understand the poignant social mores or maybe they mean absolutely nothing at all or maybe it's actually art.

So I did some research (aka nothing) and there are some serious flaws in the lyrics. Let's explore shall we:

Exhibit A. Katy Perry's "Roar"
I got the eye of the tiger *seriously, give the tiger it's eye back. like thats so rude.
a fighter *thats kidnapping guys
dancing through the fire *thats not recommended by the department of health and safety

Cause I am a champion *french mushroom
and you’re gonna hear me roar 

Louder, louder than a lion *how will your quantitatively measure that?

Cause I am a champion 
and you’re gonna hear me roar
Oh oh oh oh oh oh * waiting for the roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh *still waiting for the roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh *im sorry that wasnt a roar that was backwards Santa

Exhibit B. Miley Cyrus' "We Can't Stop"

So la da di da di *someone sat on a keyboard and was too lazy to hit backspace
We like to party *well what else rhyme with dee? We like to: larty, carty, farty, charty, marty...walmarty
Dancing with Miley
Doing whatever we want *what we say to our parents
This is our house
This is our rules *what your parents say back
We can't stop. *this is a serious condition guys. It's called hyperhannahmontanieosis. There is no cure. 1 Americans is affected each year.

Exhibit C. Lorde's "Royals"

And we'll never be royals (royals). *duh. ever heard of Prince Willy and Kate Middly. 
It don't run in our blood,*well at least check ancestry.com
That kind of lux just ain't for us. *i dont know what lux is but i can only assume its some kind of beanie baby
We crave a different kind of buzz.*lightyear
Let me be your ruler (ruler),*like 30 cm or like a metre stick?
You can call me queen Bee *yah, beyonce aint so cool with that.
And baby I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule, I'll rule. *can you please finish your sentence thats like super distracting
Let me live that fantasy *football
