He knows who you love,

Hint:

It might be easier to start with the second line.

    $\begingroup$ @randal'thor No, not this time. (I would have marked it with knowledge if it did.) It might require some general knowledge, but I don't think that's anything obscure. $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 4 '17 at 12:16

Is it

Mark Zuckerberg

Anointed Lord of the Crystal Mountain

Zucker berg = sugar mountain (and perhaps crystal refers to sugar crystals?)

wields a book of human skin.

Facebook

He knows who you love,

FaceBook Graph?

has a key to your box

Encryption?

and can strap you to a lucid dream.

Augmented Reality app?

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ This is the correct answer! You got everything right except for the box part - it refers to mailbox, since the {second line} asks people to give it their login and password for their e-mail so it can scrape it for known addresses. No, I don't mean by open-authentication style scheme, I mean by literally filling them in a form and handing them over to {second line}, which is presumably saved and reused. $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 7 '17 at 6:20
  • $\begingroup$ Also: anointing is a kind of marking, isn't it? $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 7 '17 at 6:21

Anointed Lord of the Crystal Mountain

Bees make honey which contains sugar, which is a crystal, making them the lords of ... sugar mountain

Man-made beehives have a book-like structure of slats containing beeswax which is chemically similar to human skin at a wax museum

He knows who you love,

Box

and can strap you to a lucid dream.

"Honey at Bedtime for More Vivid Dreams"

  • $\begingroup$ This is pretty creative, but it's pretty far off the mark, and it's not the right answer. ... Oh no, I've dropped a hint! $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 6 '17 at 15:36

Maybe you are

SUGAR.


Anointed Lord of the Crystal Mountain

Sugar is an important crystal.

wields a book of human skin.

Not sure.

He knows who you love,

This may refer to the fact that some people call their partner's "sugar".

has a key to your box

Sugar is found in many processed food.

and can strap you to a lucid dream.

Some claim that sugar induces lucid dreaming.

Title:

The title includes a pun on the word sweet.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ You are on the right track - you have deciphered half of the meaning behind first verse and the title - but this is not the answer. A question that might help you: what kind of material could count as human skin? $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 4 '17 at 15:23
  • $\begingroup$ For the allusion to human skin - palm sugar? $\endgroup$ – Lawrence Jun 5 '17 at 14:34
  • $\begingroup$ Other candidates for "human skin": fabric, clothes, armor, makeup, basically any worn outer layer. $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Jun 6 '17 at 19:04

I think you're

Honey

Anointed Lord of the Crystal Mountain

Honey contains sugar, a crystal. In a way, honey is like an *anointment * on sugar.

wields a book of human skin.

Um... maybe it's referring to a honeycomb? Not sure.

He knows who you love,

Lot of people call their bf/gf/wife/husband "Honey"

has a key to your box

Not sure

and can strap you to a lucid dream.

Probably something about how sweets can cause lucid dreams

And finally...

The title includes the word sweet

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Good try, but you went in the wrong direction compared to Silenus' answer. I really like how the first two answers interpreted the who you love verse in the same way, but it's not about that. As for the first verse: anointment is not related or a part of lordship. $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 4 '17 at 18:30
  • $\begingroup$ RIP alright, i'll think about it $\endgroup$ – Eric Lee Jun 4 '17 at 18:30

I don't think I've quite got it, as not everything matches each other, but I can manage to get it around a central theme, so I'm sure there are better matches than I've found thus far.

Are you

iPhone/iDevice

Anointed Lord of the Crystal Mountain

iPhones are an industry leader in smart phones, which utilize LCDs (liquid crystal display)

wields a book of human skin.

Your contact book (contains many faces)

He knows who you love,

Tracks most frequently contacted people, and contacts manually marked as favorites

has a key to your box

You can check your e-mail (inbox) from your iPhone

and can strap you to a lucid dream.

This may be a reference to the iBand+, purported to induce lucid dreaming, although it is not an Apple product.

Title:

Most iDevices are by Apple, and apples taste sweet.

  • $\begingroup$ Wow, that's a good one - it's the most fitting of all the incorrect answers so far. However, the correct answer was given by shree.pat18. $\endgroup$ – Dragomok Jun 8 '17 at 16:15
