Crystal Castles - Transgender 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

    I just saw Alice last night. It was like a trance. I couldnt cheer, couldnt take pictures, I was stunned.

  37. athena christine music

    The beginning sounds almost identical to grimes early works! Holy shit

    Kurgen Eagletail

    Mostly because crystal castles came before even grimes existed.

  38. mattmacias1980

    I have a very strong memory of walking in Amsterdam with this song blasting loudly in my headphones, feeling lost

  47. boo boo the fool

    Dysphoria is killin me 😎👌


    @political Insomnia why do you have the need to say something shitty like that


    @cgq vqy die hoe

    Sheepy Cyanide

    @Cpuff Because they're a cringy, self-obsessed cunt who tries to argue against trans people despite the actual facts backing them up. Probably thinks offensive = funny and browses 4chan to complain against imaginary enemies. Sad life.

    Dylan Gregory

    Same here

    Creamy Peaches

    @Hwd Hwd if you're actually looking for a genuine answer to your "genuine question", the identity crisis in and of itself is perfectly manageable. Being unsure of yourself isn't really "hell", you're projecting that.

    The thing that makes life unbearable for us is the feeling of isolation and terror that's created when people like you have the power to collaborate and overwhelm us.

    Your inability to feel and express empathy is a you problem, and it makes me sad that you choose to express yourself this way. I hope that in time you learn to feel more human, like we have.

    Sending love and positivity to all the trans people and all the transphobic people reading this, I hope we can move past all this some day.

  48. Nash Essencent

    Anyone else here from viilegrrl on IG? Just me? Okay.


    just you i came here on my own

    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard

    The chosen few, out of their youth

    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard
    Oh, it's hard

    I'll lay with you, out in the dew

    They cannot see, tha-at you
    Regard an ideal
    That's really you

    They lo-ove you
    that's nothing for you
    Well, we have some news for you


    Will you ever be yourself?
    Will you ever ACCEPT?

    Will you watch the petals shed from the flowers in BLOOM?

    Nothing can live up to promise
    Nothing can stop life's narrative
    Nothing can outpace the catalysts

    And you'll never be pure again.

  61. MissOptical

    I feel this captures the special abject horror and utter misery of being a trans lesbian.


    @maximus Absolutely. Cases in point! As a transsexual woman (non-op, so even worse) and lesbian myself, I feel like a repugnant slug who deserves to hang to death for my sexuality because of attitudes like those on display here. :-/ This society completely despises and misunderstands us as a demographic, we're one of the last truly taboo sexual minorities.


    @Kuzz @64tato64  No, a woman with a medical condition who was dealt a bad hand in being homosexual also, for whom impressions like yours about her defects make her want to blow her head off.


    @meeziieI try. It's incredibly hard to in light of how much this society deplores and has no place for us. :-/


    ​@MissOptical I fully understand. Struggling with society's disgusting treatment of us, on top of our pre-existing body dysphoria, is immensely difficult and creates a kind of deep misery and loneliness very few cis people could even begin to imagine or empathize with. It's incredibly unfair to be born this way, and it's even worse that such a huge percentage of the population refuses to acknowledge this fact. Not to mention the isolation and worthlessness you feel in regards to your sexuality; that no other lesbian will ever want to be with you, that you aren't worthy of their sexual attraction, etc. All we can do is hold on and continue trying to make it better, and to love ourselves in spite of the ridicule and deploration we face. I truly and deeply hope things get better for you.

    Lucy Logan

    Being a trans lesbian is great, but having society judge you for being one isn't.

  62. Fairy Princess

    this song is so eloquent and smooth. It makes me feel like i'm crossed faded when i'm sober.

  63. David Samarand


  64. Marsha E

    And you'll never be pure again....

    Out of the youth

    Are from the start
    I'll lie with you
    Out in the dew

    Real love true
    Regarding a deal
    Is it really true

    I love you
    Is it really you
    'Cause I have some news for you

    Will you ever preserve
    Will you ever exhume
    Will you watch petals shed from flowers in bloom

    Lucy Logan

    Trans people ought to be viewed as "normal" honestly.

    Cisgendered people are just common.

  84. Christopher Halpin

    Why did they call this Transgender!! Why not Crazy Beat>Transgender. Or something like Unicorn Piss. haha

    Astro Apollo

    +Christopher Halpin wut.

    James Blackwood

    because to a lot of musicians titles don't matter worth a shit.

    I'm assuming they just named it randomly. I mean shit look at some of their other titles, like Pap Smear (dope track), Doe Deer (utter nonsense lol) and Year of Silence (I'm hoping it's referring to Star Trek: Voyager, which has a two​-parter with the same title)

    Jessica Scaccia

    Watch the lyrics and its meaning then you'll find out why they called it Transgender.

    Sheepy Cyanide

    I raise you this: Why wouldn't they call this Transgender?

  85. Yumeko Neko

    the instrumental sounds like lavender town

    Meme Parody Productions / Meme Sheep

    if you collide the lavender town theme song and the song.

    † ScaƦecrøW †

    If you think this sounds like lavender town, you should listen to Intimate.

    rob easton

    Dammmm it does lol


    † ScaƦecrøW † true.
