Crystalised
XX Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You've applied the pressure
To have me crystallized
And you've got the faith
That I could bring paradise

I'll forgive and forget
Before I'm paralyzed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied? ha-iah-i

Things have gotten closer to the sun
And I've done things in small doses
So don't think that I'm pushing you away
When you're the one that I've kept closest

Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai

You don't move slow
Taking steps in my direction
The sound resounds, echo
Does it lessen your affection? no

You say I'm foolish
For pushing this aside
But burn down our home
I won't leave alive, ha-iah-iai

Glaciers have melted to the sea
I wish the tide would take me over
I've been down on my knees
And you just keep on getting closer

Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai
Ha-iah-iai

Things have gotten closer to the sun (glaciers have melted to the sea)
And I've done things in small doses (I wish the tide would take me over)
So don't think that I'm pushing you away (I've been down onto my knees)
When you're the one that I've kept closest (and you just keep on getting closer)
Go slow
Go slow, whoa
Go slow




Go slow, whoa
Go slow

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to XX's song "Crystalised" can be interpreted as a reflection on the struggles of maintaining a relationship, specifically one where the singer feels pressure from their partner to "crystallize," or become someone perfect or unchanging. The singer questions whether they have to keep up with their partner's expectations to keep them happy, all while feeling like they are pushing their partner away by not living up to their ideal. The reference to glaciers melting and the singer being down on their knees suggests a feeling of being overwhelmed, and the desire to let go or be taken over by something else.


In the first verse, the lyrics describe how the singer feels pressure to be perfect for their partner. The use of the words "applied the pressure" and "crystallized" suggest that the partner is expecting the singer to be unchanging and without fault, and the question of whether the singer needs to keep up with this pace suggests that they are struggling to meet their partner's expectations. The reference to "paradise" suggests that the partner may be idealizing the relationship, and the singer may feel like they cannot live up to this ideal.


The second verse describes the singer's feelings of being overwhelmed and possibly pushed away by their partner, and their struggle to understand their own feelings. The reference to the sun and melting glaciers suggests a feeling of change and instability, and the use of "small doses" implies that the singer may be trying to take their relationship slowly rather than rushing into things. The repetition of "Ha-iah-iai" throughout the song could be interpreted as a feeling of anxiety or uncertainty.
