Background[]

No matter how much people try to put you down or make you think other things about yourself, the only person you can trust about who you really are is you.
—Crusher-P

Though the meaning behind "Crystalline" is open to interpretation, the most common idea is that the lyrics are told from a first person point of view of a girl who is a victim of domestic abuse. She chooses by the end of the story to escape the one behind her abuse. However, other theories tell that she has an addiction to drugs (crystal meth) and realizes that for her own sake she has to break her habit.

This song has reached the Hall of Fame.

Lyrics[]

Tell me what to say
And lead me through the shadows
Show me the escape
Where you go I will follow

I left behind
All that I used to be
So that you'd stay with me

And you've become
Everything that I need
For my sanity

How can something so enticing
Have such awful side effects?
All the itching and the scratching
From withdrawal keeps me out of check

I am fixated
On all of the things
We were together...
But those are fragments
That are better off
Lost forever

I'm falling apart piece by piece
To shards of what you have made me
But I've risen above all that I've become
Turned from the pain I was trained to love

I left behind
All that I used to be
But this time
I did it for me

And you were everything I needed
To set me free

'
'
'
'
'

If I cut the strings
That held me hostage
Would I fall and shatter?
If that's what it takes
o breathe again then
Would it even matter?

How can something so enticing
Have such awful side effects?
All the itching and the scratching
From withdrawal keeps me out of check

I am fixated
On all of the things
We were together...
But those are fragments
That are better off
Lost...

And just
How can something so enticing
Have such awful side effects?
All the itching and the scratching
From withdrawal keeps me out of check

I am fixated
On all of the things
We were together...
But those are fragments
That are better off...
Lost forever!!
