John met me down on the boulevard
I cry on his shoulder 'cause life is hard
The waves came in over my head
What you been up to my baby?
Haven't seen you 'round here lately
All of the guys tell me lies but you don't
You just crack another beer
And pretend that you're still here

This is how to disappear
This is how to disappear

Joe met me down at the training yard
The cuts on his face 'cause he fought too hard
I know he's in over his head
But I love that man like nobody can
He moves mountains and pounds them to ground again
I watch the guys getting high as they fight
For the things that they hold dear
To forget the things they fear

This is how to disappear
This is how to disappear

Now it's been years since I left New York
I got a key and two cats in the yard
A California sun and the movie stars
I watch the skies getting light as I write
As I think about those years
As I whisper in your ear
I'm always gon' to be right here
No one's going anywhere

Album cover is 'shopped. A textureless-black shirt next to the day-glo thing she's wearing, and there's detail in it all the way to her left side? Please!
 
Perhaps the shirt is coated with Vanta Black (as opposed to Vanna White...?-)

Every album cover photo is retouched to some extent - they always have been.  Anyhow, there are slight details in the man's shirt and the upper sky is also altered to look like an oil painting.  You must know that photo retouching has existed long before computers have.
 
Thank you. People are losing sleep over this cover? Given the title of the album, this image fits. Though as a designer, I wouldn't call it a great or even good design.

Aaaah!  Can't believe anything anymore!!  Next thing we know, someone will complain about Fake News!!!  
I really don't know how she stole these lyrics from me!

Today he said that "in the Battlestar Glactica world it would be Norman Fracking Rockwell." 
 

Love the Battlestar reference!

I like how Bill comments at the end of this song that the title of the album is Norman...something...Rockwell. I'm no prude, but the DJs on SiriusXM always make it a point to say Norman "Fu#k!ng" Rockwell, which can be offensive to my Uber passengers. At least it makes me cringe a little. It would just be as easy to say the album is NFR like it actually states on the album cover.

I'm in a New York state of mind ?

Noticed the exact same thing. The stark lighting illuminating their faces would surely add some varying shades of shape in the black shirt.

I hear little bits and pieces of Paul McCartney...

Let me roll it
Let me roll it to you

'Effing' works for me!

I did a +1, 6 to 7, based on the album title alone!  Maybe an 8 one day....it be too slow for me this morning though...Long Live RP!!
the album cover reminds me of these...

That's actually Duke Nicholson, Jack's grandson. There is some resemblance there, too, I think.

Nice new song! Sounds extremely familiar, but I can't put my finger on it.....
 
It's a pretty traditional chord progression, which may be why it sounds familiar.

Sure, who wouldn't want to hate on Lana Del Rey, but what a lovely smallish gem of a depressing song. But depressing in the good way, right? But why is she gripping Bill Hader? I'd be envious, but I'm more a Fred Armisen kinda gal.
