Nasty Human 

“Nasty Human” is the second single in a string of “love letters” from CELIIN’s filthy glamour universe. Though her first single (addressed to “Leonardo”) showcased her vulnerable, romantic side, CELIIN takes a more introspective approach with “Nasty Human”.

 

CELIIN delves deep beyond the surface exposing a characteristic every human has: the nasty. She describes the narrative as a ‘love letter to the anxious’, and poses the question her listeners: “Tell me darling, how long you been hiding in this Nasty Human?”. CELIIN’s honest vocals cut across an arrangement that sits the space between the electronic and the organic to form her own brand of Alt-Pop.

I'm a retro kind of gal but ofc. Nasty Human is available on all streaming platforms

“Musically I wanted to capture the fear of getting caught and you’re dirty secret being exposed. The tension. The anxiety. The guilt. Everyone has a nasty side. But all the world’s a stage, so we hide it.” - CELIIN

OFFICIAL LYRICS:

 

Nasty Human

by CELIIN

 

Maybe lipstick's for losers
But occasionally
I need something to cover
No sleep

Maybe I'm just a user
but like gracefully
I'm a sucker for ruling
No sleep

Been like a puppet on a string for much too long (been this way for way too long)
Hand me the scissors and I'll cut my strings and fall

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

Always look through the keyhole
never unlock the door
I'll be up for parole soon
I'm sure

Been like a puppet on a string for much too long (been this way for way too long)
Hand me the scissors and I'll cut my strings and fall

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

How long are you gonna keep yourself a hostage
a-a-a

How long are you gonna keep yourself a hostage
a-a-a

Tell me darling
Aren't you tired?

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

Tell me darling
how long you been
hiding in
this nasty human

How long are you gonna keep yourself a hostage
a-a-a

How long are you gonna be a nasty human
a-a-a
