Lana Del Rey certainly had a good weekend, partying at Coachella and wearing a very fun baseball cap/ flannel combo. But the terminally troubled star confessed over Instagram that she had mixed feelings about dancing as tensions between the world’s most volatile nations mount.

“I’m not gonna lie- I had complex feelings about spending the weekend dancing whilst watching tensions w North Korea mount,” she wrote. “I find it’s a tightrope between being vigilantly observant of everything going on in the world and also having enough space and time to appreciate God’s good earth the way it was intended to be appreciated.”

Her conscience drove her to do what any of us would if we had an incredible talent for writing sad song lyrics to a moody-yet-catchy tune: she wrote a song. “On my way home I found myself compelled to visit an old favorite place of mine at the rim of the world highway where I took a moment to sit down by the sequoia grove and write a little song,” she continued. “I just wanted to share this in hopes that one individual’s hope and prayer for peace might contribute to the possibility of it in the long run.”

Take a look and listen below:

Hope everyone has a nice day, with love from California
