Crystal Castles - Violent Youth 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

  25. Jackie Quintanilla

    As someone going through a violent youth, I would say if it were put into a song it would sound kinda like this...

    Riley Bridgeman

    shame the band split up so they can't make more stuff like this

  26. Carlos Correa

    Shit, I thought my right speaker was broken.

  27. Jackie Apollonian

    Currently going through a violent youth

  28. Jackie Quintanilla

    I turned up the volume to 100 and it wasnt loud enough

  30. Bander Dreams

    I'm always crying when i hear that voice of girl ♡

  33. Gaby Perez

    amo esta cancion

  34. startwith53

    anyone knows what's the last part of the lyrics? the part way it get abit soft and unclear?

    Nicholas Kinsman

    startwith53 At 3:11, the song sample reverses, so you're hearing the vocals played backward. A really beautiful ending and my favorite part <3

    startwith53

    Nicholas Kinsman oh wow! i didnt know that! i agree with you thats the beautiful part! many thanks for the info!

  35. KxK96

    the end gives me chills and makes my heart hurt.

  53. Jolëne C.

    i feel strange 💔💜

  54. timmm85

    All these comments reading that cc have gone somewhere? Unless i've missed something, i'm glad they are still around.

    timmm85

    +mathias de potter Ye you're correct. I guess i'm happy that Ethan and the new girl are still producing good stuff.

    Mathias DP

    @timmm85
    so true, hope they'll release some new tracks soon...

    timmm85

    +mathias de potter couldn't agree more.

    john payne

    +timmm85 alice isn't on this track. it's ethan's voice sped up. search "violent youth pitch decreased" to hear this song slowed down to reveal ethan's natural vocal.

    Alpha Zalgo

    +timmm85 They're still around but Alice Glass left.

  55. Gdesiti Tusamti

    makes me almost piss myself idk makes me feel strange

    Mathias DP

    +Purple Purple that's prob sadness you are feeling...

    Gdesiti Tusamti

    +mathias de potter kek i was high prob dont remember i wrote that

    Mathias DP

    @Purple Purple
    high on sadness, wow dude. never tried that before

    Gdesiti Tusamti

    +mathias de potter possibly

    benni233

    +Marfu Dela Moana me estoy cagando

  56. St. Michael

    I don't know what it is about CC but their songs wake real emotions in me. Fear, Sadness, Happiness, etc.
    One minute I'm calm the next moment my heart starts to race. I've never experienced something like this through music.

    gregory ludwig

    +Supervillain listen to death grips.

    Yoshy Grajeda

    gregory fukwig. death grips? tell me about that

    Lane Webb

    josue grajeda Just listen to them and you'll know about all you need to know😂

    darko

    death grips is garbage

    hidden4 time

    Emoji Music.

  57. ʙᴀʀᴀ

    this song feels like leaving something behind on purpose, and obviously disappointment

    Kira Reincarnated

    +RottenMars Damn you nailed it. I had to withdraw from a semester in college and go home due to personal reasons (I'm returning next year), and I listened to this song on my sound system in my dorm room, as well as various other CC songs, while I was packing up all of my belongings. Had to leave all my friends behind and the entire college atmosphere that I loved in general. Listening to this struck all sorts of deep notes emotionally and left me feeling very empty on the inside yet excited and content all at the same time. CC songs always seem to elicit such bizarre emotions for me, it's fucking surreal.

    roy marius

    Ouch! gut-feels... life hurts sometimes!

    Heisenberg

    @Kira Reincarnated the art of melanchony.

    majira2001

    Oh wow...

  58. Manuel Leal

    Kath: "Frail" was recorded recently and released as a message that we are in studio writing and recording a new album. The vocals are not my pitched voice (as on "Violent Youth" or the album version of "Not in Love"). A girl named Edith is singing.

  59. Kat t

    May I use this song for a storyboard video of a robot version of cinderella? Will be sure to give credit.

  60. Sam Koedijk

    Song makes me sad.. Hopeless is a better word I guess.. 

  61. tommypseu

    well they'r both alive & well, right?........gr8 new collabs to come........

  63. __.crystalline.__

    omg 😭😭😭😭 im soo sad i love Ethan & Alice 😭😭😭 cc forever 💕💕💕💕 lol i will continue on supporting them both! 😊😊

  64. charlie Holmes

    ok man this is dope

  65. Google Pluz plus

    I don't feel anything with this. i'm not normal?

    Lars Von Richtor

    I use to feel like a different person to this song.

    straw beary

    @Lars Von Richtor Maybe that's because this is Ethan's voice and not Alice's

    Lars Von Richtor

    No its not the voice. I started to feel like a completely different person after a while. I'm back.

  66. Mlarse14

    this isn't alice's vocals, it's ethan singing...

    Hobostarr180

    David Badiola It's actually Ethan's vocals pitched up.

    Dan Gómez

    And whats he saying?

    David M

    Dan Gómez extremely wicked shit. He’s talking to his child bride.

  67. Kieran Long

    RIP crystal castles :'(

  68. Fernanda Taucan

    I always hate meeting people who don't realize their success relied on the emotional support of a peaceful household.

  73. Axel Glytter

    Oww Cool! I love it this song <3

  74. Kali Pilgrim

    i am so inspired by this

  75. ChochelinR

    This is my favorite iii song:D

  76. Michael Smith

    And I will always let you down

  77. Lunar Brain

    Crystal Castles has a meaning in every song, the meaning is nothing

    Carlos Andres

    The song talks about pedophilia and CHILDREN sexual abuse. But this is deep poetry, not everyone can ser it.

  78. Patricia Lively

    I like this =O

  79. Lolita

    BEST SONG OF THEM !! ♡♡♡

  80. Physco 38

    Apenas aguardando por vídeo novo

  81. Lee Korrigan

     I think it talks about the feeling to be apart and forgetfulness.The lyrics are a metaphor about fragile of individuals and the violence of the masses, especially in young ages. Whatever, cristal castles point its on the lenguage of music and lyrics are open and suggestive.

  82. screw you

    and i will always let you down... :(

  83. Yuna Mazzu

    Minha predileta. :'3

  84. Katie Miller

    This song gives me goosebumps. Every time.

  87. Cesar M

    i will always let you downnnn :((

  88. klymen

    Crystal Castles is not about a meaning or a message, it's about creating a feeling.

    @lumberjum555 Exactly

    Brian Kyllo

    How are you?

  89. Victor Velazquez

    Best way to enjoy this song is getting X'ed Up and listening to it a max volume

  90. Laura Merino García

    sounds quite like Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs

  91. amprmxfr7

    I dont think this is a song about rape I think it's about mass manipulation am I wrong to think that ? :/
