Crystal Castles - Child I Will Hurt You 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

    i had a dream that there was a project x at my old high schools main stadium.. and one of my best friends who is also the love of my life went to hide in the locker room in the staduim and when i walked in the room it was a dresser room 0:20 of the song came on and the room was foggy and my vision had the quality of an early 80's camera ..i asked what was wrong and she said "she has no one not even her fam"......this was a week before her dad died and several months after her mom died .. i told her to go for a walk with me to talk... then all the students started a big ass bonfire with all the schools furniture in the middle of the feild and we were wathcing from the roof of the school and it ended with handed holding

  20. JasonPlayz901

    i always think of this song whenever im sad
    i can't stop thinking about this song, i cant find a girl

  21. zorinant95

    Legit one of the most painful albums for me to listen to. I remember listening to this song when I had surgery-appendix- and this was what I primarily listened to beforehand and afterwards.
    This album has so much pain in general, but that memory just makes this album all the more painful.

  22. KetaKidd

  23. Omaru Senpai

    This song makes me sad idk why maybe bc is nostalgic

  24. ayooub xino

  39. Airey B

    When you release paper lanterns into the air

  40. Rebecca Chiptune

    This song is my go-to for coping with CSA and other types of abuse. It just feels like the song that my dying, child self is yearning for. Its nostalgic, and tragic.

  41. milkman's wife

    hide all that you could
    done for the greater good

  48. wendy's

    what the fuck, i can never listen to this song without wanting to cry. it makes me feel like i'm living a tragic life that i'm not. makes me feel almost mad with sadness, how the hell can a song evoke such feelings??

  49. Dave The Future Wang Rec

    the Crystal Castles

  51. Ed C

    This song sounds like Christmas

  52. Omni Memex

    My favorite song.

  53. Angel I.

    it's been a while since I have heard CC so the other day I heard this song. a day later I have this dream. I'm on a train with a friend (who in real life is only a familiar face) and it's this girl, but I'm not interested in her romantically since I already have a gf. So we're just talking and then the conductor talks through the intercom saying that we are going to be coming to a stop but into a wall and that our time has come, but he says it all calmly. everyone seems to accept it but they all looked depressed. I yell "come on! what's wrong with u people?! we are going to die and your not even going to try to live!" so I'm trying to escape and finally I find a way out and I jump out with my friend and we make it, just us two. (this song plays in the background all dramatic like a movie) then the girl tells me it was meant to happen and she had to go back. I try to tell her other wise and we are both crying. she says I love you and kisses me. but it's not like a romantic kiss at all. it's like im never going to see you again kiss. she turns around out of sight I'm just there crying. and it ends

    Crystal F

    Angel I. Wow...

  74. Jakob


  75. Mauricio Björk

    adiós crystal castles para mi personal sin la vos de alice ya es otra banda
    lo mismo que pasa con alice in chains o queen
    ya no es lo mismo aunque sea mejor
    si ethan tiene una nueva cantante no sonara cómo crystal castles aunque sea mejor ya no creo que sirva ese nombre, eso adiós :´( como extrañare a estos 2 juntos joder

    Mitternacht K

    Es lo mismo, la voz de alice en los records esta tan modificada que no tiene gracia, puede ser reemplazada por cualquiera... de hecho ya fue reemplazada y escuchando frail uno se da cuenta de que crystal castles es ethan y no ethan+alice...

    Mauricio Björk

    Tienes razón

  76. pierreerichexum

    You listen to this then listen to Frail and Deicide and it's obvious Ethan hasn't only lost Alice Glass but also his inspiration


    @pierreerichexum I actually really like both those songs! Although they can't compare to this.

  77. little Vixen

    All parents harm their children, trying to protect them from the harsh reality of the world.

  78. selenophilia

  87. Not Human

    An abusive paedophilia themed song that ends with murdering children? Sure thing, I'm in. FUCK NO!!!!

  88. AmykinzVlogz

    well...i'm suppose to write an essay about a song with symbolistic meaning, and how the song can easily be taken out of context. Totally found it. Thank you CC.

  89. MrRimenez

    David Lynch like this.

  90. marda379

    i cant ever listen this song to the end, i feel like i am going insane with it, seriously if you have problems please dont listen to this song, its not comforting, its just overwhelming and suicidal

    Mitternacht K

    I feel a little bit your comment, this brings me so much sadness, more than i can express, but i feel that song it's beautiful in a strange way, and for that my feelings are confuse... after all this is gorgeous :)


    I have problems yes, but I will continue listen to it because it helps me to redeem my anxiety and calms me down. so no, I will not stop listening to this hauntingly sad but yet beautiful song.


    That's the thing though. Crystal Castles has a very dark, haunting style, and the title reflects that... But if you pay attention, many of their songs are deceiving. In Untrust Us, they claim you shouldn't do cocaine, as it's bad for your health, but the title tells you not to trust them. In this one, the title suggests horrible acts of violence towards children... but instead, it's much closer to a lullaby, instead saying how parents sacrifice everything to protect their children from the world, causing them to be harmed by the world when they have to leave their parents' protection and face it themselves. So in a way, the song is actually beautiful. Reflecting the sacrifice and love that a parent can, and should have, for their children.

    xfainting spellsx

    when i listen to this, it seems like i travelled to a distant place i call home, lost but content

  91. Oliver Schratz

  92. MaroonCacti

    This song is so relaxing
    Also ifunny sucks ass


    you're just mad because no one likes your garbage meme website. trust me in 5 years you'll look back at the time when you used to go on ifunny and regret every second of it.


    @MaroonCacti If I felt any bit of agitation or perturbance, I would portray my frustration through brushing off any said hatred.


    keep pretending you're some kind of higher intellectual, it sure will get you a lot of places ;^)
