CRYSTAL CASTLES - PLAGUE
/official lyrics/

I need you pure I need you clean
Don't try to enlighten me
Power to misconstrue
What have they done to you

Infants in infantry
Rewrite their history
Uproot their colony
You're ripe for harvesting

Virgin cells to penetrate
Too premature to permeate
They can't elucidate
Never thought i was the enemy

I am the plague
I am the plague

They fake sincerity
Thy gifts don't give to me
Now you've been annointed
They've been asking for it

Infants in infantry
Rewrite their history
Uproot their colony
You're ripe for harvesting

Virgin cells to penetrate
Too premature to permeate
They can't elucidate
Never thought i was the enemy

I am the plague
I am the plague

I need you pure I need you clean
I need you pure I need you clean





CRYSTAL CASTLES - KEROSENE
/official lyrics/

Light of God dimming weak
Nothing's wrong go back to sleep
Lost the will at infancy
Drown them in charity
Lend them comfort for sorrow   
Enthusiasm they borrow     
I can clean impurity
Wash away with kerosene

Can't offend my modesty
Thank you for defiling me
Language pure as binary
Instruct with dishonesty
In nature there's no tragedy
Bandage them in tapestry 
Trade comfort for identity
Drown me in kerosene
Kerosene

I'll protect you from
All the things ive seen
And I'll clean your wounds
Rinse them with saline
Kerosene




CRYSTAL CASTLES - WRATH OF GOD
/official lyrics/

Christen them
with paraffin
Sterilize samaritans
Contravene loyal ties
Migrate them
through the pesticide
They’ll strip you of your heritage
Heritage
They’ll strip you of your heritage




CRYSTAL CASTLES - AFFECTION
/official lyrics/

Catch a moth hold it in my hand
crush it casually
Without past I can't disappoint
my ancestry
Forever can I sleep inside
your menagerie

Catch a moth hold it in my hand
crush it casually
Without past I can't disappoint
my ancestry
Forever can I sleep inside
your menagerie

We drown in pneumonia not
rivers and streams




CRYSTAL CASTLES - PALE FLESH
/official lyrics/

Place the ash on their foreheads
An impression to embed
Born-Again before teething
Collect tears from their weeping

Oh hiding them under the seafoam
Package them like a cheap gift
You're nesting under the corridor

Place the ash on their foreheads
An impression to embed
Born-Again before teething
Collect tears from their weeping

Oh hiding them under the seafoam
Package them like a cheap gift
You're nesting under the corridor

Adolescent fiance
I'm just flesh to give away




CRYSTAL CASTLES - SAD EYES
/official lyrics/

She wears her veil at night
Shadows cast uninvite

Discourage affection

Sad eyes
Sad eyes
You can't disguise sad eyes

Feign care and warm concern
The kiss you did not earn

Discourage affection

Sad eyes
Sad eyes
You can't disguise sad eyes




CRYSTAL CASTLES - INSULIN
/official lyrics/

We dissolve everything
Scratch follicles so they don't grow
Expose your shame for all to see
Sell your bones as ivory

Perfume in my blood
Nails grow through the glove
Bruise my embryo
Lay them down lay them down in rows

I sleep for you when you're exhausted
Your first born will be accosted
Fill their lungs with tar and sage
Make the stem cells act their age

Perfume in my blood
Nails grow through the glove
Bruise my embryo
Lay them down lay them down in rows




CRYSTAL CASTLES -  TRANSGENDER
/official lyrics/

will you ever preserve will you ever exhume
will you watch petals shed from flowers in bloom
nothing can live up to promise
nothing can stop its narrative
nothing in place of catalysts
and you'll never be pure again




CRYSTAL CASTLES - VIOLENT YOUTH
/official lyrics/

show up in your lace
drink up little girl
and they will always let you down
hold your mother's pearl
show up in your lace
up to your cheekbones
prevention is the only cure
kiss them through windows
throw up in your plate
look angelical
if you sleep before i arrive
i'll pray for you my girl
a flower on fire
and i will always let you down

CRYSTAL CASTLES - MERCENARY
/official lyrics/

Silhouettes caress without feeling
Who'll be your mercenary

Let the trespassers stay
Decorate starving strays
You can not convert me
Reparations unseen

Silhouettes caress without feeling
Who'll be your mercenary

They dress them up in lace
Underage have their way
Join them in solitary
Should be voluntary





CRYSTAL CASTLES -  CHILD I WILL HURT YOU
/official lyrics/

Keep them locked away
Reduce them to strays
Clean their cuts and scrapes

Mercy we abstain
Hope you're entertained
Snow covers the stain

Forray forever

Taught them with solace
They know a soft caress
To lower your defense

Hide all that you could
Done for the greater good
It's later understood

Forray forever
she doesn't have phone or internet. i'll post what i do have later.
I agree about not posting scans. It seems somewhat personal.
ive seen some like scrapbook like a big a4 one that was being read out of while recording in a kitchen or some such..

we need scans of that as a booklet in the album/forum/what ever

Text is boring cursive is lovely
I agree about not posting scans. It seems somewhat personal.

It was meant more as a joke actually.  ;D
How strange not to have phone or Internet. Has to be a very different life compared to mine, carrying a cell phone with Internet connection around with me all the time. I could contact any person, or proof check any fact, I know at any time and even contact people I don't know by simply searching for their names on one of the many people-finding services in my country.

I don't own a cell phone. It's rare I ever talk on the phone w/people to begin with, and it's usually to sort out important things or if it's the only means to do certain things. If that's the case, I usually end up borrowing a cellphone briefly.
Actually both members of CC have never had phones.

hi
scars will heal soon
the dregs in us spent the earth down

better than drowning in a burlap sack
i live. as alice. i die.
children shouldn't play with dead things
foaming crows
tear at their wings
sad eyes cry crimson blood

drop it its dead
wheels won't turn they won't turn the birdy's head
sad eyes sad eyes like sharpened daggers
you'll never walk only stagger
sad eyes quite cryptic
bye

Bronze by gold heard the hoofirons, steelyringing imperthnthn thnthnthn.
Chips, picking chips off rocky thumbnail, chips. Horrid! And gold flushed more.
A husky fifenote blew.
Blew. Blue bloom is on the
Gold pinnacled hair.
A jumping rose on satiny breasts of satin, rose of Castille.
Trilling, trilling: I dolores.
Peep! Who's in the... peepofgold?
Tink cried to bronze in pity.
And a call, pure, long and throbbing. Longindying call.
Decoy. Soft word. But look! The bright stars fade. O rose! Notes chirruping answer. Castille. The morn is breaking.
Jingle jingle jaunted jingling.
Coin rang. Clock clacked.
Avowal. Sonnez. I could. Rebound of garter. Not leave thee.
Sweetheart, goodbye!
Avowal. Warm.

When love absorbs.

War! War! The tympanum.
A sail! A veil awave upon the waves.
Horn. Hawhorn.
When first he saw. Alas!
Full tup. Full throb.
Warbling. Ah, lure! Alluring.
Martha! Come!
Clapclop. Clipclap. Clappyclap.
Goodgod henev erheard inall.
Deaf bald Pat brought pad knife took up.
A moonlight nightcall: far: far.
I feel so sad. P. S. So lonely blooming.

courtship dating

how do i feel for thee
your smile brings disease
cuz we're young, fell in from the stars

when your skin is shed
find a pile of your head
now then i'll look so smart

stove burns on my hand
show them do my friends
make you participate

eyes roll back around
limbs fall to the ground
seasoned to procreate   

the first to interfere
are culled before the deer
when they wander into the cage

stuff their arms and thighs
then they roll their cardboard eyes
their skin will never age

stove burns on my hand
show them do my friends
make you participate

eyes roll back around
limbs fall to the ground
seasoned to procreate   

---------------------------
tell me what to swallow
-----------------

through the wall he threw me
i know he'd never hurt me
daddy watch me sleeping
i've been praying for you silently


daddy's love makes me whole
without him i'm insecure
the only girl he'd ever love
is one that smells so pure

i, insectica
fly thru dimensia
you give me more than meets the eye
you give me more than i can't deny

a thousand eyes thru your soul
a thousand eyes over me
your power eclipses me
as i take my place beneath thee
i want to be in your colony
i want to serve your queen
for the venom through iron wings
still beats in symmetry

deathray deathray you're gay deathray

straight to my heart
she tears apart
you have the right to remain in pieces
you have the right to own my heart
now i am a part of your colony
now i live to serve your queen
as the venom through iron wings
still beats in Symmetry
