“I(‘d) Never Walk Cornelia Street Again”

What’s Cornelia Street?

Lyrics:

[…]

“I’d never walk Cornelia Street again
That’s the kind of heartbreak time could never mend”

[…]

Left Out in the Cold

When I first heard ‘Cornelia Street,’ it scared the shit out of me, and here’s why:

Taylor Swift’s lyrics in the song “Cornelia Street,” specifically the line “I(‘d) never walk Cornelia Street again,” seem to carry a metaphorical meaning.

It appears that the phrase “walk Cornelia Street” is a metaphor for “walk down this road again,” symbolizing a path. By substituting the word “street” for the more common “road,” there might be a deliberate nod to the concept of the street, alluding to the idea of the red-light district or prostitution.

“Walk the Streets for Money”, Lyrics by Sting/The Police from the Song “Roxanne”

The name “Cornelia” being a female name, could be seen as a metaphor, drawing a parallel to Roxanne from Sting/The Police, which is often associated with the theme of a woman involved in the world of prostitution.

In the song, Taylor Swift expresses fear of losing her partner due to her actions. The choice of saying “never walk down that road again” might signify her reluctance to engage in certain behaviors or experiences, possibly involving providing sexual favors for career advancements.

The Roxanne-Cornelia metaphor could suggest that these experiences might have included more explicit sexual interactions, as Roxanne is often associated with the world of sex work. The lyrics thus seem to convey a sense of regret and a desire to avoid repeating certain choices that may have impacted her relationships.

In my opinion, it’s a hidden message, as Cornelia Street does exist in NYC, and the metaphor is embedded in a different context. Where it all took place, I believe, is also subtly hidden in the line ‘I say casually in the car’.

I Believe Taylor Swift makes Ryan Reynolds an Explicit Proposition

Lyrics to I Can See You (Taylor’s Version)

“You brush past me in the hallway
And you don’t think I, I, I can see ya, do ya?
I’ve been watchin’ you for ages
And I spend my time tryin’ not to feel it

But what would you do if I went to touch you now?
What would you do if they never found us out?
What would you do if we never made a sound?

‘Cause I can see you waitin’ down the hall from me
And I could see you up against the wall with me
And what would you do, baby, if you only knew?
That I can see you

Uh-uh, uh, uh

And we kept everything professional
But something’s changed, it’s somethin’ I, I like
They keep watchful eyes on us
So it’s best that we move fast and keep quiet
You won’t believe half the things I see inside my head
Wait ’til you see half the things that haven’t happened yet

But what would you do if I went to touch you now?
What would you do if they never found us out?
What would you do if we never made a sound?

‘Cause I can see you waitin’ down the hall from me
And I could see you up against the wall with me
And what would you do, baby, if you only knew? Oh, oh, oh
That I could see you throw your jacket on the floor
I could see you make me want you even more
What would you do, baby, if you only knew?
That I can see you

Uh-uh, uh, uh

I could see you in your suit and your necktie
Passed me a note saying, “Meet me tonight”
Then we kiss, and you know I won’t ever tell, yeah
And I could see you being my addiction
You can see me as a secret mission
Hide away and I will start behaving myself

Uh-uh, uh, uh
Oh-oh, oh, oh

I can see you waitin’ down the hall from me
And I could see you up against the wall with me
And what would you do, baby, if you only knew? Oh
And I could see you throw your jacket on the floor
I could see you make me want you even more
What would you do, baby, if you only knew?
That I can see you, oh, I can see you

Oh, I see you, I see you, baby
I see you
(Uh-uh, uh, uh) I see you, I see you, baby
Oh, baby”

Watch till the end and wait for the panel van to cross the bridge.

Lyrics to “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine

“Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way

And every demon wants his pound of flesh

It’s always darkest before the dawn

And I’ve been a fool and I’ve been blind (I’ve been blind)
I can never leave the past behind
I can see no way, I can see no way
I’m always dragging that horse around


Shake it out, shake it out, ooh whoa

And it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back (shake him off)
And given half the chance would I take any of it back? (shake him off)
It’s a fine romance, but it’s left me so undone (shake him off)
It’s always darkest before the dawn (shake him off)
(Oh whoa, oh whoa)

And I’m damned if I do and I’m damned if I don’t

So here’s to drinks in the dark at the end of my road


And I’m ready to suffer and I’m ready to hope
It’s a shot in the dark aimed right at my throat

Looking for heaven, for the devil in me (oh whoa)
But what the hell, I’m gonna let it happen to me, yeah”

“Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift

Don’t get mad. Get Everything.

The problem with victim-perpetrator reversal and victim-blaming – but what happens when the victim becomes the perpetrator?

All I want to say is that they don’t really care about us
Don’t worry what people say, we know the truth
All I want to say is that they don’t really care about us
Enough is enough of this garbage
All I want to say is that they don’t really care about us

Skin head, dead head
Everybody gone bad
Situation aggravation
Everybody, allegation
In the suite on the news
Everybody, dog food
Bang-bang, shock dead
Everybody’s gone mad

All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us

Beat me, hate me
You can never break me
Will me, thrill me
You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me
Everybody, do me
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you black or white me

All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I’m a victim of police brutality, now (Mhhm)
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of hate
Your rapin’ me of my pride
Oh, for God’s sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy…
Set me free

Skin head, dead head
Everybody, gone bad
Trepidation speculation
Everybody, allegation
In the suite on the news
Everybody, dog food
Black man, black mail
Throw the brother in jail

All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us

Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible ’cause you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame
They’re throwin’ me in a class with a bad name
I can’t believe this is the land from which I came
You know I really do hate to say it
The government don’t wanna see
But it Roosevelt was livin’, he wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skinhead, deadhead
Everybody, gone bad
Situation, speculation
Everybody, litigation
Beat me, bash me
You can never trash me
Hit me, kick me


You can never get me

All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us

Some things in life they just don’t wanna see (Ah)
But if Martin Luther was livin’
He wouldn’t let this be, no, no

Skinhead, deadhead (Yeah, yeah)
Everybody’s gone bad
Situation, segregation (Woo-hoo)
Everybody, allegation
In the suite on the news
Everybody dog food (Woo-ho)
Kick me, kike me
Don’t you wrong or right me

All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us
All I wanna say is that they don’t really care about us

The Affliction of Schizophrenia: The Devil Inside, and No One to Blame

They have been conveying the message all along. What is it that many people still fail to perceive as the truth?

Schizophrenia Simulation in Taylor Swift’s ‘Anti-Hero’ Video
Magical Thinking as a Symptomatic Expression in Schizophrenia

Magical thinking refers to a cognitive phenomenon where individuals believe that their thoughts, actions, or rituals can influence events in the external world. It involves making connections between unrelated actions or events based on superstition or a perceived cause-and-effect relationship that lacks a logical or evidence-based foundation.

Magical thinking is often driven by a desire for control, comfort, or a way to make sense of uncertain or stressful situations. It is a common aspect of human cognition and can be found in various cultural and individual belief systems. While magical thinking can be a normal part of human experience, in some cases, especially when it interferes with daily functioning, it can be associated with certain psychological conditions.

Magical Thinking Illustrated with Taylor

In the context of magical thinking, the number thirteen serves as a reference to the Tarot card 13, essentially as a wish for a specific event to occur. The mouth and eye are deliberately chosen for a good reason, and the phrase ‘obsessed with 13’, in my opinion, pertains to an individual. What lies beneath is so shocking that we veil the true meaning because it is overwhelming.

As mentioned earlier, magical thinking can have various expressions, and the reasons behind these actions can differ from person to person. In some cases, magical thinking patterns might be associated with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or other mental health conditions. If someone’s behavior becomes problematic and causes distress to themselves or others, seeking professional help from a mental health specialist can provide a proper diagnosis and appropriate support.

Empowerment Through Entanglement: Faustian Pact with the Devil

Seriously? Who wouldn’t want a picture with Taylor Swift now, featuring a kid wearing a hat like Michael Jackson’s?

Is this seriously the role model we want for our children? Modeling sexism. Sex sells. Pandering. Is this for us too? Who wants to see this?

Personally, I want to live in a world where I am more confronted with decent people. People who can handle their lives and are not completely disturbed or sick, and accordingly behave that way.

I want to see women earning a billion decently, without sexual misconduct or sexism. It’s about addressing that I want to see women succeed without having been abused or exploited by men in positions of power, and that this does not seem like a faustian pact with the devil.

Tutoring

Get tutoring and go get medical help because this is symptomatic behavior. When I see women behaving like this, I know what underlies it. In my opinion, based on experience and personal observation, it stems from sexual abuse, and that’s psychology. If I have been protected by my parents, I will continue to protect myself. If, for example, I have been sexually abused by a parent, I learn behaviors that correspond to the abuse.

Guidelines for Photographing the Intimate Areas

Referring to “Cornelia Street”, Song by Taylor Swift

Lyrics:

“I’d never walk Cornelia Street again
That’s the kind of heartbreak time could never mend”

I can imagine that losing a partner because one is repeating childhood traumas must be devastating. There is a behavioral pattern behind it that we have all encountered throughout our lives, as old as humanity itself.

What’s behind the type of woman who steals other women’s men?

“I’m tired of bein’ the victim of shame”, Lyrics from Michael Jackson’s song “They Don’t Care About Us”

Taylor’s Version:

Not her image is at fault, but the general role model is to blame.

Sarah Böttger’s Version:

The success of women like Taylor Swift, who conform to the Taylor Swift archetype, contributes to the issue. It perpetuates the notion that people still, given the prevailing norms of the industry, contemplate if, and if so, with whom, one needs to navigate Cornelia Street to become a billionaire as a woman.

So, Taylor Swift’s behavior is a contributing factor to the problem.

It is not okay to label women as sluts for having multiple sexual partners while praising men for similar behavior. Taylor Swift’s case highlights the double standard where women are considered sluts for being successful while men are applauded for the same behavior. She is successful due to alleged sexual exploitation by influential men to earn money, reinforcing the societal notion that women who succeed must have engaged in inappropriate activities.

This presents a paradox: Taylor Swift seems to endorse both the acceptability of sleeping with many men and the notion that the known number of her partners is not substantial for her age. Overall, it sends a confusing message, and the constant exposure of Taylor Swift’s genital area and open mouth on the screen doesn’t resonate with the heterosexual female audience.

Why can’t people see the truth?

The question remains: why can’t people see the truth? The answer lies in the overwhelming deluge of justifications, conflicting narratives, and the presentation of supposed facts, leading the brain to shut down. In this whirlwind of thoughts, the truth becomes elusive, leaving individuals disoriented. At the end of the day, the prevailing societal narrative perpetuates the notion that a successful woman is a slut, adding to the confusion. So, what was the truth again? Ah yes, Cornelia Street!

That’s what keeps us hypnotized, like the mouse staring at the snake. We sense that something is off, and we keep looking until we figure it out. For those who grasp what lies beneath, encountering this content might evoke a different reaction.

Survival Strategies: The Art of ‘Playing Dead’

In biology, there is the behavior of “playing dead” or “death-feigning.” Some prey animals, including mice, can play dead in the presence of predators such as snakes to protect themselves from the threat. This behavior is based on the tendency of some predators to respond to moving prey. However, if the prey remains motionless, it reduces the likelihood of being perceived as a source of food. It is a survival strategy to avoid detection or being consumed.

Survival Mechanism

The concept of staring motionless, as if hypnotized, serves as an instinct for survival. Our subconscious perceives the snake, the danger, prompting us to feign death and remain in that situation with the snake. The snake holds the advantage over the mouse in this scenario. It can strike faster and consume its prey.

There are three survival mechanisms: playing dead, fleeing, and attacking. If the mouse confronts the snake alone, running away is not an option as it stands no chance against the snake, which is faster. Hence, the mouse’s instinct to play dead. Attacking the snake is also not feasible if the mouse wants to survive.

However, if the mouse had reinforcements, in the form of more mice, and they outnumbered the snake, survival could be ensured by collectively attacking the snake.

Therefore, the mouse either remains in a state of feigned death until the snake leaves on its own, or it requires reinforcements to survive. If the mouse attacks or flees alone, the snake will strike.

In Dedication to my Father

On a side note, this topic is the story of my life. I have been facing the snake wherever I go. Even though the snake didn’t directly cause the death of my father when I was eleven years old, who, upon realizing the truth, promptly suffered a heart attack and literally died of a broken heart, the snake and the consequences of her actions, the injuries from her attack on me and my brother, were certainly the trigger for my father’s heart attack. When the truth dawned on my father, the lights literally went out for him. After my father passed away, the snake left us in peace.

In light of the fact that my father has passed away, she didn’t just diminish the love; she literally ensured that it was eradicated, the love she had never experienced. So why should anyone else have it better than her? Well, here’s to my father’s love.

Depression as a survival mechanism

Depression as a survival mechanism is equivalent to playing dead. In the context of humans, depression can be seen as a form of feigned death. This is crucial information to understand so that we can adapt our behavior accordingly. When we recognize that we are depressed because we constantly perceive ourselves in danger, and we resort to playing dead, we can begin to contemplate the triggers for this feigned death/depression.

Gaslighting – “Shame on you!”

Individuals who were abused as children had no chance against their perpetrators, as abusers ensure that the environment does not offer assistance. Children who are abused by their surroundings are portrayed as the problem and devalued. Abusers make sure that the surroundings know that the child has “issues”. Thus, the child is always made to be the cause of their problems or is turned into the problem.

Abused children do exhibit noticeable behavioral issues and seemingly create problems. For those appropriately trained, these behavioral issues serve as the first indication that a child is being or has been abused, especially in situations where girls and boys are abused by one parent and not protected but betrayed and exposed by the other parent due to their own history of abuse. Both parents contribute to making the child believe that they have done something wrong and should be ashamed.

The victim experiences gaslighting, which is a defensive strategy employed by the perpetrators.

What a Great Role Model she is

Thanks to the devil, women who are not willing to get sexually abused by men, and walk the streets for success:

“Taylor Swift is about to show the studios…it’s going to make an enormous amount of money. And if they don’t want it, somebody else will. So that’s just the truth of it.”, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XABIUN2Whrs&t=2s.

And this contributes to another challenge for decent women to succeed because decent men fear that supporting them in their careers might be misconstrued as having a romantic involvement with them.

Thanks to Taylor, she is demonstrating that sexism is acceptable. There’s something for everyone: blondes, brunettes, redheads, 50 kg, 60 kg, 70 kg, 80 kg, 90 kg: take your pick. The poster is only 500 euros.

Who wouldn’t enjoy Taylor Swift’s content? It seems like everyone does. So, she must be doing everything right, correct? Hey, show me your intimate area again, Taylor! I want to look up to you my empress. But she isn’t the problem; we learn this again in the “The Man” video at the end. No, the men who are requesting her to do so are the problem. Why doesn’t she have the choice to say no exactly? Whoever doesn’t comply is out. It’s as simple as that.

Who is Who? – The Pattern

The Case of Rape by the Father

In psychology, excessive sexual behavior is considered a symptomatic response to compensate for trauma. The primary reason why women, in particular, are sexually exploited is that men predominantly occupy positions of power.

However, there are also instances of men being sexually exploited, and the form of sexual exploitation depends on the perpetrator – the more, the better. Sexual intercourse as a form of sexual exploitation is more common among women than men, representing one aspect of the problem. Another facet of the issue lies within the victims themselves.

Especially women who have experienced sexual violence as children often repeat these experiences throughout their lives. They are trapped in a relational configuration where they are sexually abused by their fathers and exposed to such abuse by their mothers. The reverse scenario exists as well, but we are specifically addressing the case of rape by the father.

sarcasm

Empowerment Through Entanglement: Breaking the Cycle of Abuse

The victim, by ensnaring the man, ostensibly gains power over the situation, preventing further sexual abuse, both from the father and the mother, who, by exposing and not protecting, also contributed to the problem. In a metaphorical sense, the victim takes control of the situation, not only protecting themselves from the father but also addressing the mother’s role in the exposure and lack of protection.

Lyrics:

I can’t see you, mama
But I can hardly wait

But it’s getting so hard, oh-oh, ahahahah!

Can’t you see me here, mama?
Mama, mama, mama, please?
Can’t you feel my heart?
Can’t you feel my heart?

Can’t you feel my heart? Oh-woah
Now listen to me, mama
Mama, mama
You’re taking away my last chance!
Don’t take it away
Can’t you feel my heart?
Ahahah, ahahah, oh

It’s hot, too hot for me, mama
But I can hardly wait
My eyes, they’re burning, mama
And I can feel my body shake

Ah, don’t stop, don’t stop me, mama
Oh, make the pain, make it go away
No, I won’t hurt you, mama
But it’s getting so hard, oh-ooh

Now I can’t see you, mama
But I know you’re always there
You taunt, you tease me, mama
But I never, never, never can keep away

It’s the heat and the steam of the city
Oh, mama, got me running and I just can’t brake
So stay, don’t leave me, mama
‘Cause it’s getting so hard, oh

Don’t go!
No, no, don’t go!
D-d-don’t go!
Don’t go!
No, no, no, don’t go!
Don’t leave me here, don’t go!
Don’t go!
