"Baptism" as written by Ethan Kath and Alice Glass....
Hold my head under water
Take a breath for the Father
Learn to love. Lessons repeating
The Chronicles are so misleading

This is your baptism
And you can't forgive em
This is your baptism
And you can't forgive em

Hold my head under water
Take a breath for the Father
Learn to love. Lessons repeating
The Chronicles are so misleading

This is your baptism
And you can't forgive em
This is your baptism
And you can't forgive em

    General CommentAlbum Version:

    Hold my head underwater
    Take a breath for the father
    Hold your mouth, you can't stop breathing
    The chronicles were so misleading
    This is your baptism
    And you can't forgive them
    This is your baptism
    And you can't forgive them

    Thoughts?

    General Commenti love the fact the google ads are advertising actual baptism on this page. Christianity - endorsed by crystal castles.

    I need to hear a decent recording of this, i swear it is the best song they have ever made

    General CommentThe album lyrics are:

    Hold my head underwater,
    take a breath for the father,
    Learn to love lessons repeating,
    the Chronicles are so misleading.

    This is your baptism,
    and you can't forgive them,
    this is your baptism,
    and you can't forgive them.

    My InterpretationThis is what I hear in the recorded version...

    Hold my head underwater
    Do my best for another
    Hold your breath, you can't stop breathing
    Its only god who's stopped believing

    Then in the chorus I can't help but hear "THIS IS YOUR POTATO!"

    Hehe, any thoughts? I also found a pretty good video of this live on youtube: youtube.com/…

    General CommentThis is what I hear:

    In my midst like we've been doing
    Ignoring us by the ocean
    I can see it
    One last
    I can touch it, I can see it

    Oh my god
    I'm not watching

    No, we won't stop breathing
    I'm sure we'll make a deal

    This is your baptism
    And you can't forgive them

    We're in now
    Feels great
    We're touching what is or was
    I can see it
    I can keep believing
    I can touch it, I can see it

    etc

    She also whispers a lot in this song

    myspace.com/… - the version of Baptism on there is what I used
