So this is Crystal Country
Where refugees flee like I fly
Into forests of your eyes
Hey, I saw full-on night there
She said, "you'll always be alone"
And she was right, there
She said you'll always be alone
And she was right there rummaging through the eastern townships
Just wait, here comes the comeback you've always hated

Somewhere an olive branch is being planted
In honor of a dancers body and, granted
You could take This as a sign that there is life outside the mine
And maybe things are looking up but, Buttercup
The form insists on rupture and therefore we break
Ok?

So this is Crystal Country
And, like refugees flee I fly
Into the forests of your eyes
Hey, I saw full-on night there
She said, "you'll always be alone"
And she was right, there
She said you'll always be alone
And she was right there rummaging through the western townships
Where they're staging a play called Comeback
The only line is "don't go"

Somewhere an olive branch is being planted
In honor of a dancers body and, granted,
I know things have never looked this good but
Somehow indulge your life at sea for now

'Cause when a breeze is blowing
It's just Crystal Country showing us
That everything must break to be beautiful
And, honey, that's what I meant when I called and said
"This is fucked"

    General CommentThe last line encapsulates the song's meaning really well as the music degrades into a desperate chord and everything breaks down into profanity.

    If "everything must break to be beautiful", the last line is Bejar ending a relationship. This point is driven by the suddenness of the transition from the once pleasant song.

    General CommentI just want to say that the first line
    made me fall in love with this song.

    So This is Crystal Country,
    where refugees flee like I fly...
    into forests of your eyes...
