Crystal Castles - Insulin 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

    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

  27. General Tso Joe Hayabusa

    Maaaan... I just imagine this as a last boss theme. I wish game developers picked you guys up to create music for games.

  28. Alvaro Becerra

    It's 2017 and I still don't fucking hear any lyric on this one... Only weird whispers and some distorted Alice's voice.


    keep trying

  29. FLUTCH




    D W

    Because there is no such thing as a 13th floor.

  30. Daniel Mejia

    What is this about? The lyrics seem to be allegorical to abortion, or oppression towards women's rights on reproductive rights. Why Insulin though?

  31. John Doe Jr.

    Perfect for driving 130mph through late night L.A. traffic.

  32. wendy's

    are my earphones being little shits again or is the distortion the song


    I think it's the song

  45. Belén O Rincón Rosselló

    not to b hateful or anything but i cant compare Alice's lyrics to Edith's i mean 'perfume in my blood' so much more expressive and personal idk

    vos es verum

    Amy's Sacrifice um... she's saying the opposite of what you think she said.


    another boy, another girl SHE IS SAYING WHAT YOU JUST SAID.

    Blue Ghost

    Yep, Alice is soooo good at writing lyrics. She said that for some songs she used some of the poetry she wrote when she was 16, to think that she was that young and yet that deep, obscure and unique will always amaze me. She seems to have such a poetic and dark view on the world, I would love to be in her head for just 5 minutes to see how she sees

  46. Almendra Barrón

    Ojalá se vuelvan a juntar para una gira.

  57. Whetsit Tuya

    I love how distorted this song is, it's like an analogy for the destructive habit catalyzing obesity


    Whetsit Tuya that makes no sense.

    Whetsit Tuya

  71. Bronze Serpent

    Lucas Scaglia

    it's from the crystal castles' album (III) cover. There are 2 versions of the cover.

    Bronze Serpent

    where did they get it from though?

    Lucas Scaglia

    Album artwork
    The album cover features a picture by Spanish photographer Samuel Aranda. The image depicts a woman named Fatima al-Qaws holding her son, Zayed, who was exposed to tear gas during a street demonstration in Sana'a, Yemen, on October 15, 2011 

    from wikipedia

  72. Timeoable

    Best way to blow steam, is to listen to that song at a maximum level. This is so fucking liberating.

  73. Cesar muñoz


  74. Weronika Juszczak


  75. Jesús

    @Spacecowboyable To be honest

    Assburger Man

    Andy Simons

  76. Eric1HBK2

     I listened to "III" for almost two years now, and why the hell i never heard this track before?

    N¡gh†m∆res ∆nd 8Ø8s

    guess you never really listened to it then

  77. Leonardo666ism


  78. Christian Mauck

    @Holly mackintosh: right now, I'm thinking by myself: "how sounds Insulin?" ;-) (well, i guess either a lot more sweeter or a lot less sweeter than this *g)

  79. Holly mackintosh

    i'm diabetic and i don't understand why this song is called insulin

    Rodrigo Morales

    I’m diabetic too and I can’t understand too.. XD

    Vlăduț Geană

    Maybe it's about inheriting diabetes, or more likely about it's hereditarity, and how your offsprings may have a chance of having diabetes : "Bruise my embryo/Lay them down, lay them down in rows". And it may not specifically relate to diabetes, but to any hereditary disease and about how guilty you feel as a parent for your child in this situation(even though it's not your fault)


    @Vlăduț Geană how do you understand the lyrics from crystal castles songs? I've listened to them a lot and I don't think I've caught a single word haha
    edit: oh. just noticed that the lyrics are in this very video's description... I'm an idiot haha


    Lol same. Diabetics al around the world are searching for music about insulin and finding this insanity.

    L RX

    theres a group on facebook called "using insulin syringes for things that are not insulin", food for thought lmao

  80. Katrina G.

  86. KendylTV

    Whenever I hear this, I imagine it being the sound you hear when you're being stabbed to death... If that could be conveyed through melodies, anyway.

    Crystal Castles are fucking amazing.

    Алексимир Атанасов

    the sound of being stabbed to death is the sharp object going through your organs soooo
