"Vanished" as written by Alice Glass, Ethan Kath, Tomek Marian Archer, Michael Di Francesco, Nicholas Routledge and Matthew Edward Van Schie....
In the dark , We come out and play
We are its children, And were here to stay
Running through , Hungry for strays
No invitation, take me away
I'm not cruel, But that's still what you see
Club to club, Come see this city with me
Hungry for life, Without your pity
I don't want it, But you give it

Still can't say she won't start up
Still can't say she won't start up a fight
You go city
Cause in the city of life she can't she can't wait


In the darkness, A killer awaits
To kill a life, And the lies you make
You do another, So this death can live
Just keep on dancing, To the movie your in
The smell of your sweat, Just lures me in
Your heartbeat, Does sing to me
Running feet, Beats my blood
My ghost inside you, Soon will be

Still can't say she won't start up
Still can't say she won't start up a fight
You go city
Cause in the city of life she can't she can't wait

Hungry for strays, hungry for life, no invitate your pity

I don't want sex but you give it

Still can't say she won't start up
Still can't say she won't start up a fight
You go city
Cause in the city of life she can't she can't wait [x2]


Now its over, You've taken your life
The dark grows thin, And I'm left to hide
I don't regret it, But its sad anyway
Now were both dead, And scared of the black
This life of games, And diligent trust
Its the things we do, Or the things we must
I'm now tired of being cussed
So go sleep forever end to dust

    General CommentCrystal Castles named this song like this
    to give us a clue to who he remixed......i think


    "VANISHED"

    now remove the "I" and "D"
    and you get this

    "VAN SHE"


    hahaha

    General Commentthis is the 3rd verse for this song...this is one of the best song.

    Now its over, You've taken your life
    The dark grows thin, And I'm left to hide
    I don't regret it, But its sad anyway
    Now were both dead, And scared of the black
    This life of games, And diligent trust
    Its the things we do, Or the things we must
    Im now tired of being cussed
    So go sleep forever end to dust

    my interpretation for this song is some guy going out in the night and going to clubs (In the dark, come out and play
    we are its child, here to stay)
    and when they are dancing they start to sweat and their bodies are touching each others and soon he will take her home (smell of your sweat, lures me in your heart sings to me running feet through my blood my ghost inside you soon will be)
    he had sex with her and doesn' it and now they will go their ways and forget what happen (Now its over, You've taken your life The dark grows thin, And I'm left to hide I don't regret it,...Im now tired of being cussed So go sleep forever end to dust) thats my interpretation of this song

    General CommentLike someone else said...

    VANISHED - I/D = VAN SHE
    just like how they took the Van She song and subtracted certain parts of the lyrics out of it.

    General Commentsome of these lyrics seem off, but this song is amazing. maybe better than crimewave, I can't decide yet.

    Anyway, I think this song is from the point of view a boy who is in love with a girl, but they party a lot and are really into night life, and soon she starts getting caught up in drugs and gets addicted and basically starts killing herself with them

    "In the darkness, A killer awaits
    To kill a life, And the lies you make
    You do another, So this death can live"
    the killer is the drug, and they may or may not already be in a relationship, and she keeps lying to him about the drugs and how much she's doing, but he's so caught up in the party scene that he doesn't really know how to help her either.

    General CommentThis song is pretty awesome.

    the best lines are definately verse 2 and i think zenzella makes good sense of them

    the chorus is a bit confusing (still cant say...) but i think it just hints at the unpredictability of their lifestyles
