Crystals - Of Monsters And Men


The Experience: Nothing grows when it is dark... When you clam up and keep your problems to yourself, they only grow. The trouble is, good friends are hard to find, and harder to trust...


Music video: While in the lyric video an old man - the voice of experience and wisdom - mouths the lyrics to Crystals, the music video is a much darker. Of Mice and Men reanimate the corpse of a dead women, with Nanna Bryndís as the presiding witch. The last shot - the milky white eyes of a possessed corpse - force the question. Is it always good to bring the skeletons in your closet back to life? Do you have the strenght to face them?

The Meaning of Crystals: Of Monsters and Men sings about letting your guard down, so that you can let someone else in. If you're hurting - lost, caught, showered by empty hopes, falling fast, cold, paper thin - you can either wither in the dark, or peel away the bark and stand naked in your own see-through skin. That's the only way for everything within you to be forgiven. It's not easy, and Crystals acknowledges that you can only do it where you are truly loved. Home is the only place where you can let your true colors bleed out and blend with someone else's. Find that home where you can open up, because nothing grows when it is dark. Where is it? Wherever someone doesn't look at with with crystal eyes that shatter at the first mistake. Wherever someone truly loves you and isn't afraid of sharing your burdens - let your colors bleed and blend with mine.

Ask yourself: Does anyone really know who you are? Do you let them?

LYRICS:

Lost in skies of powdered gold
Caught in clouds of silver ropes
Showered by the empty hopes
As I tumble down
Falling fast to the ground

I know I'll wither
So peel away the bark
Because nothing
Grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears
I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones
That tremble down your spine
Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colors bleed
And blend with mine

Making waves in pitch black sand
Feel the salt dance on my hands
Raw and charcoal colored thighs
Feel so cold and my skin
Feels so paper-thin

I know I'll wither
So peel away the bark
Because nothing
Grows when it is dark
In spite of all my fears
I can see it all so clear
I see it all so clear

Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that
Tremble down your spine
Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colors bleed
And blend with mine

But I'm ok
In see-through skin
I forgive what is within
Because I'm in this house
I'm in this home
All my time

Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And feel the tones that
Tremble down your spine
Oh oh oh oh
Cover your crystal eyes
And let your colors bleed
And blend with mine
