"Fainting Spells" as written by Ethan Kath and Alice Glass....
I'll make you forget
With the taste of lambskin
The bounty is yours
It tastes like medicine

We evaporate
Without condensation
But heaven is still
Your only expectation

I'll make you forget
With the taste of lambskin
The bounty is yours
It tastes like medicine

We evaporate
Without condensation
But heaven is still
Your only expectation

    My InterpretationYo también creo que se relaciona con la religión y con un pasaje bíblico donde Moisés libera a su pueblo del faraón egipcio con ayuda de Dios.
    Dios manda a su ángel exterminador a Egipto y matará a todos los niños a menos de que la puerta de su casa se marque con la sangre de un cordero.
    Todo el pueblo lo hace menos el faraón, que es el hermanastro de Moisés, y el ángel exterminador mata al hijo del faraón y entonces él los libera.

    Suena como a metáfora:
    "i'll make you forget - tu poder a través de la muerte de tu hijo"
    "taste of lambskin" como mal sabor de boca
    "The bounty" de dejarnos libres "is yours"
    "It tastes like medicine", o acaso no te sientes mejor faraón?

    "But heaven is still, Your only expectation" para ver a tu hijo de nuevo.

    Esta última parte de la canción también me recuerda a la pintura Assumpta corpuscularia lapislazulina de Dalí
    o no?

    My InterpretationI also think it relates to religion and with a biblical passage where Moses leads his people from the Egyptian Pharaoh's slavery towards freedom with God's help.
    God sends his angel of death to Egypt and kill all children unless the door of his house is marked with the blood of a lamb.
    All the people makes it but Pharaoh, who is the half brother of Moses, and the angel of death kills the pharaoh's son and then he leaves them free.

    To me, sounds as:
    "I'll make you forget - your power through the death of your son"
    "taste of lambskin" as bad taste, as bad time
    "The bounty" of set us free "is yours"
    "It tastes like medicine", or don't you feel better pharaoh?

    "But heaven is still, Your only expectation" to see your son again.

    This last part of the song also reminds me of Dalí's painting Assumpta corpuscularia lapislazulina
    what do you think??

    General CommentThese lyrics have been confirmed by Crystal Castles: crystalcastles.com/lyrics/2010/

    As for the first two lines, I think it's a reference to seduction/sex. The taste of lamskin probably refers to lambskin condoms.

    The first line makes me think of date rape, though I'm not sure; the last line might add to this as revenge for something. Lambskin refers to condoms. The bounty is the body of your partner. "It tastes like medicine" might refer to the idiom "a taste of your own medicine."

    "We evaporate
    Without condensation
    But heaven is still
    Your only expectation"

    After both climax, they lose interest, but it is still the main interest during the act.

    General CommentI actually think this whole song is about a girl's seduction or just wanting sex and the guy obviously succumbs to her. But still at the end, she's saying she knows he's going to have more expectations out of this 'relationship' and she knows it's not going to happen.

    Song MeaningThis song is about religion.

    "I'll make you forget
    with the taste of lambskin"
    You'll forget your real-life problems by letting religion take them away, the taste of lambskin is a biblical reference.

    "The bounty is yours
    it tastes like medicine"
    It's saying that by believing in heaven (the bounty) you're believing in something that's not really there, just to medicate your problems.

    "We evaporate without condensation"
    When we die, we float up and we don't reform anywhere. We don't condensate back into rain droplets in the clouds, we don't reform as angels in heaven.

    "But heaven is still your only expectation"
    Speaks for itself.
