"Courtship Dating" as written by Alice Glass and Ethan Kath....
How do I feel for thee?
You smell of great disease
'Cause we're young
Fell in from the stars

When your skin is dead
On a pile of your head
Now then, I look so smart

Stove burn on my hands
Show them to my friends
Make you participate, okay
Eyes roll back around
When skulls hit the ground
Visions to procreate

Heaven should interfere
I'm coming from your tears
When they wander into their cage
So their arms and thighs
And their holy covered eyes
Just yet, will never age

Stove burn on my hands
Show them to my friends
Make you participate, okay
Eyes roll back around
When skulls hit the ground
Visions to procreate

Stove burn on my hands
Show them to my friends
Make you participate, okay
Eyes roll back around
When skulls hit the ground
Visions to procreate

Stove burn on my hands
Show them to my friends
Make you participate, okay
Eyes roll back around
When skulls hit the ground
Visions to procreate

Stove burn on my hands
Show them to my friends
Make you participate, okay
Make you participate, okay

    General CommentThese are the official lyrics from Andy who runs their label in Canada:

    how do i feel for thee
    your smile brings disease
    cuz we're young, willing from the start

    when your skin is shed
    find a pile of your head
    now then i'll look so smart

    stove burns on my hand
    show them do my friends
    make you participate

    eyes roll back around
    limbs fall to the ground
    seasoned to procreate

    the first to interfere
    are culled before the deer
    when they wander into the cage

    stuff their arms and thighs
    then they roll their cardboard eyes
    their skin will never age

    General CommentAlice said herself, this song "is about human taxidermy, the idea of preserving the beauty of a lover the way you would an animal." There you go.

    Straight from the mouth the record label:

    COURTSHIP DATING

    how do i feel for thee
    your smile brings disease
    cuz we're young, willing from the start

    when your skin is shed
    find a pile of your head
    now then i'll look so smart

    stove burns on my hand
    show them do my friends
    make you participate

    eyes roll back around

    when they wander into the cage

    stuff their arms and thighs
    then they roll their cardboard eyes
    their skin will never age

    General Commentok for people who are unsure of the lyrics i pulled these off of crystal castle official website

    How do I feel for thee
    Your smile brings disease
    Cuz we're young, fell in from the stars

    When your skin is shed
    Find a pile of your head
    Now then i'll look so smart

    Stove burns on my hand
    Show them do my friends
    Make you participate

    Eyes roll back around
    Limbs fall to the ground Seasoned to procreate

    The first to interfere
    Are culled before the deer
    When they wander into the cage

    Stuff their arms and thighs
    Then they roll their cardboard eyes
    Their skin will never age

    Stove burns on my hand
    Show them do my friends
    Make you participate

    Eyes roll back around
    Limbs fall to the ground

    General Commentthose lyrics are legit.

    6 months ago, when I listened to their album everyday, I was rolling really hard on sassafras(pure MDMA, ecstasy) and I swore the lyrics in the first chorus were:

    "how do I feel for thee
    these small frequiencies
    cuz we all fell in from the stars"

    but that is just what i heard, not surprised, rolling. hah
