Celestica
Crystal Castles Lyrics


As we fall into sequence
And we're eating our young
Remain silent and still for modesty
When the splints have been broken
And they can't help you now
Do you pray with your eyes closed naturally

Follow me into nowhere
Woven with the utmost care
If I'm lost please don't find me
If I jump let me sink
We descended from no one
With a wink

When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me
When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me

Follow me into nowhere
Woven with the utmost care

Have they cleansed you with chloride
And scrubbed behind the knees
Has your body been hollowed by the breeze

And we're eating our young
Remain silent and still for modesty
When the splints have been broken
And they can't help you now
Do you pray with your eyes closed naturally


Follow me into nowhere

If I'm lost please don't find me
If I jump let me sink
We descended from no one

When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me
When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me


Follow me into nowhere
Woven with the utmost care


Have they cleansed you with chloride
And scrubbed behind the knees
Has your body been hollowed by the breeze

As we fall into sequence
And we're eating our young
Remain silent and still for modesty
When the splints have been broken
And they can't help you now
Do you pray with your eyes closed naturally?
Follow me to nowhere
Woven with the utmost care
If I'm lost please don't find me
If I drown let me sink
We descended from no one
With a wink
When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me
When it's cold outside hold me
Don't hold me
When I choose to rest my eyes coax me
Don't coax me
Follow me to nowhere
Woven with the utmost care
Have they cleansed you with chloride?
And scrubbed behind the knees?
Has your body been hollowed by the breeze?

For those wondering what this song is about - “‎Celestica is actually the name of the company in our home town that produces plastic, someone who worked there committed suicide by jumping into a large container of boiling liquid plastic and the workers couldn’t stop the machine so the body melted and became part of the stream of liquid plastic which they use to create products with.” - From Ethan.

that's a little disturbing but also poetic af

@thug nation 420 As someone from Ecuador, I can confirm bizarre deaths in plastic moulding factories go unreported. But I believe that's more of a Third World thing, being swarmed with juicier and more relatable news about street crime. In the English-speaking and sue-happy side of America, however...

As a chemical engineer, I'll have to call bullshit on many levels. Boiling plastic is spoiling plastic, as they degrade chemically when the temperature is too high (which could be as low as 130°C for the cheaper LDPE, mind you).

Also, "company that produces plastic" can mean one of two things, so I'll call bullshit on both scenarios:
- petrochemical factory where polimerization happens, turning an oil fraction into plastic pellets: temperature control has to be extremely precise (is the difference between a 2 and a 4 in the recycling triangle, after all) so it must be carried out in an enclosed vessel, and some chemical reactions produce not only plastics but also byproducts (usually water vapor) that must be separated and collected somewhere else for proper recycling/disposal.
-plastic products factory where plastic pellets are melted and moulded: machines are fed the pellets through the hopper (cool), sent to the barrel (warm) through a small hole that won't ever fit a human, and moved towards the nozzle and mould by a heated rotating screw so the pellets melt halfway through the tighly enclosed screw.

Deaths DO happen in plastic factories, but it's never due to the plastic itself. Think sticking limbs into moving machinery parts, or a heavy object falling from a high place.

@JuicyJews i grew up in Brazil in a industrial neighborhood (only small-ish factories for 5 blocks or so) and there was plenty of bizarre deaths, they dont make the news or anything, it would just happen like , a lot. men are disposable, they'd just get squished by machines or fall into boiling metal or get a screw shot into their brain from a pressurized thing exploding. the car that takes bodies for autopsy would come and take them. no news

i worked in plastics industry and a body would make that whole batch unusable, also the body wouldn't melt, it would burn, which would start a fire

i’m 22, i have a work, i make money, i have fun, i have both my parents living, i’m confident, i’m independent, i’m secure with my self, i have big plans for the future, i could say i’m happy... but i have no friends, no love, not even a pet, i’m completely lonely, absolutely no one cares about me or what i do, no one never text me or call me. crystal castles makes me remind those days when i was 15 in high school not caring about anything, just living my life. i heard this song for the first time 7 years ago, time flies in a really strange way...

Trust things will turn out well in the end brutha. I'm the same, i have no connections now kind of strolling through life alone. But songs like this brings back memories of the early days with little responsibility and hanging with friends smoking weed etc. As long as you keep positive and move forward things will connect sooner or later, a good reminder for myself as well -
