Huesos de Cristal
Protistas Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Chico huesos de cristal
Ponte la capa y sal afuera
El viento te rompió un pie
Pero a la gente ya no le interesas

Mientras nunca pierdas la cabeza
Haz como si nada y sigue tu camino
Tu madre te enseño a protegerte con almohadas
Atadas con masquinte
Siempre escondido dentro de tu cama
Releyendo viejas historietas
Noche tras noche
Dentro de tu pieza

Me haré un disfraz
con celofán
Y a masturbarme
Hasta controlar esta ansiedad

Dime donde quieres despertar
Me gusta el cielo para observar
La vía Láctea

Chico huesos de cristal
Saltas tan alto que trasciendes
A este cuerpo que tu sabes bien
Que ya no le sirve de nada




Arrastrándote al medio día
Mientras el sol hace brillar tu capa

Overall Meaning

The song Huesos de Cristal by Protistas appears to be about a boy who may have a condition called osteogenesis imperfecta, which is commonly referred to as brittle bone disease. The first lines of the song address the singer as "Chico huesos de cristal," which translates to "Boy with bones of glass." This likely refers to the fragile state of his bones, which are prone to breaking easily. Despite his condition, the boy is determined not to let it hold him back. He puts on his cape and goes outside despite having a broken foot, knowing that people don't care about his struggles.


The second verse reveals that the boy has learned how to protect himself with makeshift padding from his mother, and spends much of his time inside his room, reading old comics. The lyrics "Haz como si nada y sigue tu camino" ("Act as if nothing is wrong and continue on your path") suggest that the boy has learned to cope with his condition and is determined to live his life as normally as possible.


The chorus of the song seems to transition into a fantasy, as the singer talks about wanting to masturbate in a celophane costume until he can calm his anxiety. He then goes on to ask where the listener wants to wake up, stating that he likes to observe the Milky Way from the sky. The last lines of the song describe the boy being dragged along in the middle of the day while his cape glimmers in the sun, suggesting that he continues to persevere despite his challenges.
