Allusion to Gatsby in 33 “GOD”

Allusion to Gatsby in 33 “GOD”
I wanted to see if any of y’all think there’s any connection between F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby and the lyrics of ’33 ‘GOD”,’ or am I reaching too far? I know Justin Vernon has a song titled “The Orient. And The Gatsby’s Slew Of Choices,” so I assume he has some interest in the novel.Now in ’33 “GOD”‘, I slowly started to see ties to the book.In the song’s line”I’d be happy as hell, if you stayed for tea,”I am reminded of the scene in the novel where Gatsby sets up a meeting for tea with Daisy to rekindle their relationship.Also, in the novel Daisy and Tom have a daughter who is primarily ignored and is only something to be shown off at parties before being returned to her nanny. I see the line in the song”a child ignored”possibly referencing this.Could the lines”well we walked up on that bolt in the street” and “we’re rising the stairs”reference a very specific (and my favorite) portion of the book when Gatsby and Daisy walk in the street together earlier in their life? From the novel:”One autumn night, five years before, they had been walking down the street when the leaves were falling…Gatsby saw that the blocks of the sidewalks really formed a ladder and mounted to a secret place above the trees — he could climb to it, if he climbed alone…”Ladders and stairs are similar, right?I see the line,”I could go forward in the light”referencing Gatsby’s famous green light.Fitzgerald writes,”Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgiastic future that year by year recedes before us.”And finally, with the last clearly sung line, “Well I better fold my clothes,” I am reminded of the scene where Gatsby giddily throws dozens of shirts in the air as Daisy looks on with amazement and ecstasy. Maybe Justin is finishing the song by referencing having to go back and fold all those thrown shirts, moving forward.Obviously, I only have a few scattered lyrics to reference, and I don’t have any idea of how that relates to a bigger theme or other clear themes in the song, but I thought it was interesting. Do you guys see any of this, or am I being crazy?

Am I the only one that had that lyric from Wet Sand in the back of my head, then made a flowchart of the best RHCP members with pictures of little Will Ferrel and a link to a legendary concert/album from 10+ years ago ??… California?

Yeah probably not. As you were.

How can I write in the style of Frank Ocean?

How can I write in the style of Frank Ocean?
I’ve been lurking on this subreddit for a while now and have learnt some real great techniques that have stuck with me up to this point.After listening to ‘Blond’ and revisiting ‘Channel Orange’, I’ve come to the personal conclusion that Frank Ocean is one of the best songwriters of our time, his lyrics are so emotive and vivid.I’m not sure if this is the right subreddit to ask this question as he may not be classed as the typical ‘Hip Hop’ artist, but I feel that learning to right in his style would help me and others who rap improve their lyrics too.So here’s my question:How can I write as vividly as him when speaking on certain themes and concepts, with all his pop culture references and complex metaphors?
