B i o g r a p h y
 (by Stephen Thomas Erlewine)

Bjrk first came to prominence as one of the lead vocalists of the avant-pop Icelandic sextet the Sugarcubes, but when she launched a solo career after the group's 1992 demise, she quickly eclipsed her old band's popularity. Instead of following in the Sugarcubes' arty guitar rock pretensions, Bjrk immersed herself in dance and club culture, working with many of the biggest names in the genre, including Nellee Hooper, Underworld, and Tricky. Debut, her first solo effort (except for an Icelandic-only smash released when she was just 11 years old), not only established her new artistic direction, but it became an international hit, making her one of the '90s most unlikely stars. Though the title of Debut implied that it was Bjrk's first-ever solo project, she had actually been a professional vocalist since she was a child. When she was in elementary school in Reykjavik, she studied classical piano and, eventually, her teachers submitted a tape of her singing Tina Charles' "I Love to Love" to Iceland's Radio One. After "I Love to Love" was aired, a record label called Falkkin offered Bjrk a record contract. At the age of 11, her eponymous first album was released; the record contained covers of several pop songs, including the Beatles' "Fool on the Hill," and boasted artwork from her mother and guitar work from her stepfather. Bjrk became a hit within Iceland and was not released in any other country. Bjrk's musical tastes were changed by the punk revolution of the late '70s; in 1979, she formed a post-punk group called Exodus and, in the following year, she sang in Jam 80. In 1981, Bjrk and Exodus bassist Jakob Magnusson formed Tappi Tikarrass, which released an EP, Bitid Fast I Vitid, on Spor later that year; it was followed by the full-length Miranda in 1983. Following Tappi Tikarrass, she formed the goth-tinged post-punk group KUKL with Einar Orn Benediktsson. KUKL released two albums, The Eye (1984) and Holidays in Europe (1986), on Crass Records before the band metamorphosed into the Sugarcubes in the summer of 1986. The Sugarcubes became one of the rare Icelandic bands to break out of their native country when their debut album, Life's Too Good, became a British and American hit in 1988. For the next four years, the group maintained a successful cult following in the U.K. and the U.S. while they were stars within Iceland During 1990, Bjrk recorded a set of jazz standards and originals with an Icelandic bebop group called Trio Gudmundar Ingolfssonar. The album, Gling-Gl, was released only in Iceland. By 1992, tensions between Bjrk and Einar had grown substantially, which resulted in the band splitting apart. Following the breakup of the group, Bjrk moved to London, where she began pursuing a dance-oriented solo career. The previous year, she had sung on 808 State's "Ooops," which sparked her interest in club and house music.

Bjrk struck up a working relationship with Nellee Hooper, a producer who had formerly worked with Soul II Soul and Massive Attack. The first result of their partnership was "Human Behaviour," which was released in June of 1993. "Human Behaviour" became a Top 40 hit in the U.K., setting the stage for the surprising number three debut of the full-length album, Debut. Throughout 1993, Bjrk had hit U.K. singles — including "Venus as a Boy," "Big Time Sensuality," and the non-LP "Play Dead," a collaboration with David Arnold taken from the film Young Americans — as well as modern rock radio hits in the U.S., and in both countries she earned rave reviews. At the end of the year, NME magazine named Debut the album of the year, while she won International Female Solo Artist and Newcomer at the BRIT Awards; Debut went gold in the U.S. and platinum in the U.K. During 1994, Bjrk was relatively quiet as she recorded her second album with Nellee Hooper, Tricky, 808 State's Graham Massey, and Howie B of Mo' Wax Records; she also released a remix EP, co-wrote the title track for Madonna's Bedtime Stories, and performed on MTV Unplugged that same year. "Army of Me," the first single from Bjrk's forthcoming album, was released as a teaser single in the spring of 1995; it debuted at number ten in the U.K. and became a moderate alternative rock hit in the U.S. Post, her second album, was released in June of 1995 to positive reviews; it peaked at number two in the U.K. and number 32 in the U.S. Post matched its predecessor in terms of sales and praise, going gold in the U.S. and helping her earn her second BRIT Award for Best International Female Artist. Post yielded the British hit singles "Isobel" (number 23), "It's Oh So Quiet" (number four), and "Hyperballad" (number eight), yet her singles failed to make much headway on American radio or MTV. Late in 1996, Bjrk released Telegram, an album comprised of radical remixes of the entire Post album, in the U.K.; Telegram was released in America in January 1997. Homogenic, her most experimental studio effort to date, followed later that same year and spawned many remix releases in the next few years to follow. In the spring of 2000, she was named Best Actress by jurors at the Cannes Film Festival for her work in Lars von Trier's Palme d'Or-winning Dancer in the Dark. Selmasongs, her score for the film, reunited Bjrk with her Homogenic collaborator Mark Bell and arrived in the fall of 2000, just in time for Dancer in the Dark's U.S. release. The full-length follow-up, Vespertine, was released one year later. She released a Greatest Hits collection and the Family Tree box set late in 2002. After performing a few dates in 2003, Bjrk geared up for a busy 2004, which included the release of her all-vocals and vocal samples-based album Medlla and a performance of one of its songs, "Oceania," at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece.

Debut

Human Behaviour

 If you ever get close to a human
And human behaviour
Be ready to get confused
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
To human behaviour
But yet so, yet so irresistible
And there's no map
They're terribly moody
And human behaviour
Then all of a sudden turn happy
But, oh, to get involved in the exchange
Of human emotions is ever so, ever so satisfying
Oh oh, and there's no map
Human behaviour, human
Human, human behaviour, human
Human, human behaviour, human
Human behaviour, human
And there's no map
And a compass
Wouldn't help at all
Human behaviour, human, human
Human behaviour, human
Human behaviour, human
Human behaviour
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
Human, human
Human behaviour
Human
There's definitely, definitely, definitely no logic
Human, human, human, human

Crying

 I travel
All around the city
Go in and out of
Locomotives
All alone

 There's no-one here
And people everywhere
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

It's a hot day
And i'm dressed lightly
I move carefully
Through the crowd
Here everyone
Is so vulnerable
And i'm as well

There's no-one here
And people everywhere
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

Only if a ship would sail in
Or just someone came
And knocked at my door
Or just, or just something

Crying 'cause I need you
Crying I can feel you
Crying 'cause I need you
Crying 'cause I care

Venus As A Boy

 His wicked sense of humour
Suggests exciting sex
His fingers focus on her
Touches, he's venus as a boy

He believes in a beauty
He's venus as a boy
He believes in a beauty
Eternal...

He believes in a beauty
He's venus as a boy
He believes in a beauty
Eternal...

He's exploring
The taste of her
Arousal
So accurate
He sets off
The beauty in her
He's venus as a boy

He believes in a beauty
He's venus as a boy
He believes in a beauty
Eternal...

He believes in a beauty
He's venus as a boy
He believes in a beauty
Eternal...

There’s More To Life Than This

Come on girl
Let's sneak out of this party
It's getting boring
There's more to life than this

It's still early morning
We could go down to the harbour
And jump between the boats
And see the sun come up

Sample : There's more to life than this

There's more to life than this
There's more to life than this

I could nick a boat
And sneak off to this island
I could bring my little ghettoblaster

There's more to life than this
But then we'd have to rush back
To the town's best baker
To get the first bread of the morning
There's more to life than this

Sample : There's more to life than this

There's more to life than this X4

Like someone in love

Lately
I find myself out gazing at stars
Hearing guitars
Like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me

Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love

Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love

Sometimes the things I do astound me
Mostly whenever you're around me

Lately
I seem to walk as though I have wings
Bump into things
Like someone in love

Each time I look at you, I'm limp as a glove
And feeling like someone in love
Like someone in love
Like someone in love

*** Thanx a lot to Skully who corrected a mistake ***

Big Time Sensuality

 I can sense it
Something important
Is about to happen
It's coming up

It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality

We just met
And I know I'm a bit too intimate
But something huge is coming up
And we're both included

It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality

I don't know my future after this weekend
And I don't want to

 It takes courage to enjoy it
The hardcore and the gentle
Big time sensuality
Sensuality


One Day

 One day, it will happen
One day, one day
It will all come true.

 One day, when you're ready
One day, one day
When you're up to it

 The atmosphere
Will get lighter
And two suns ready
To shine just for you
I can feel it, I can feel it

One day, it will happen
One day, one day
It will all make sense.

One day, one day
You will blossom
One day, one day
When you're ready

An aeroplane
Will curve gracefully
Around the volcano
With the eruption that never lets you down

 I can feel it, I can feel it

And the beautifullest
Fireworks are burning
In the sky just for you
I can feel it, I can feel it
One day, one day, one day, one day
One day, one day, one day, one day


Aeroplane

I can not live
Peacefully without you
For even a moment
I miss you terribly
When you're away
 He's away
This ain't right
I'm alone
I'm taking an aeroplane
Across the world
To follow my heart

How come
Out of all the people in the world
Only one
Can make me complete
One word, one word on the phone
Makes me happy
One touch, but one touch directly
Makes me ecstatic
He's away
This ain't right
I'm alone
I'm taking an aeroplane
Across the world
To follow my heart

Come To Me

Come to me
I'll take care of you
Protect you
Calm, calm down
You're exhausted
Come lie down
You don't have to explain
I understand

 You know
That I adore you
You know
That I love you
So don't make me say it
It would burst the bubble
Break the charm

Jump off
Your building's on fire
And I'll catch you, I'll catch you
Destroy all that is keeping you down
And then i'll nurse you
I'll nurse you
I'll touch you

 You know
That I adore you
You know
That I love you
So don't make me say it
It would burst the bubble
Break the charm


Violently Happy

 Since I met you
This small town hasn't got room
For my big feelings

Violently happy
'Cause i love you
Violently happy
But you're not here
Violently happy
Come calm me down
Before I get into trouble

I tip-toe down to the shore
Stand by the ocean
Make it roar at me
And I roar back

Violently happy
'Cause I love you
Violently happy
But you're not here
Violently happy
Overemotional
Violently happy
I'll get into trouble
Real soon
If you don't get here
Baby

Violently happy
'Cause I love you
Violently happy
I'm aiming too high
Violently happy
It will get me into trouble
Violently happy
I'm driving my car
Too fast
With ecstatic music on

Violently happy
I'm getting too drunk
Violently happy
I'm daring people
To jump off roofs with me
Only you
Can clam me down
I'm aiming too high
Soothe me


The Anchor Song

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home

 I live by the ocean
And during the night
I dive into it
Down to the bottom
Underneath all currents
And drop my anchor
This is where I'm staying
This is my home

Play Dead

 Darling stop confusing me
With your wishful thinking
Hopeful embraces
Don't you understand?
I have to go through this
I belong to here where
No-one cares and no-one loves
No light no air to live in
A place called hate
The city of fear
I play dead
It stops the hurting
I play dead
And the hurting stops
It's sometimes just like sleeping
Curling up inside my private tortures
I nestle into pain
Hug suffering
Caress every ache
I play dead
It stops the hurting

Post

 Army of me

Stand up
You've got to manage
I won't sympathize
Anymore

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me

You're alright
There's nothing wrong
Self-sufficience please!
And get to work

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
Army of me

You're on your own now
We won't save you
Your rescue-squad
Is to exhausted

And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
And if you complain once more
You'll meet an army of me
Army of me


Hyper-ballad

We live on a mountain
Right at the top
There's a beautiful view
From the top of the mountain
Every morning I walk towards the edge
And throw little things off
Like car-parts, bottles and cutlery
Or whatever I find lying around
It's become a habit
A way to start the day

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

It's real early morning
No-one is awake
I'm back at my cliff
Still throwing things off
I listen to the sounds they make
On their way down
I follow with my eyes 'til they crash
Imagine what my body would sound like
Slamming against those rocks
When it lands
Will my eyes
Be closed or open

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

 I go through all this
Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Safe up ( here with you ) ...

It’s oh so quiet

Shhhh, Shhhh
It's, oh, so quiet
It's, oh, so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until...

You fall in love
Zing boom
The sky up above
Zing boom
Is caving in
Wow bam
You've never been so nuts about a guy
You wanna laugh you wanna cry
You cross your heart and hope to die
'Til it's over and then

Shhh, Shhh
It's nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse, zing boom
The devil cuts loose, zing boom
So what's the use, wow bam
Of falling in love

It's, oh, so quiet
It's, oh, so still
You're all alone
And so peaceful until...

You ring the bell, bim bam
You shout and you yell, hi ho ho
You broke the spell
Gee, this is swell you almost have a fit
This guy is "gorge" and I got hit
There's no mistake this is it

'Til it's over and then
It's nice and quiet
Shhh, Shhh
But soon again
Shhh, Shhh
Starts another big riot

You blow a fuse
Zing boom
The devil cuts loose
Zing boom

You blow blow blow blow blow your fuse
When you've fallen in love

Enjoy

 I wish: I want to stay here
I wish: this be enough
I wish: I only love you
I wish: simplicity

Look at the speed out there
It magnetizes me to it
And I have no fear
I'm only into this to

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy

I wish I'd only look
And didn't have to touch
I wish I'd only smell this
And didn't have to taste
How can I ignore
This is sex without touching
I'm going to explore
I'm only into this to

Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy, enjoy

Youve been flirting again

All that she said was true

Give her some space
All that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
How you reacted was right
Give her some time
Give her some space
How you reacted was right

Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into flame

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me,like me

When she does it she means to
Moth delivers her message
Unexplained on your collar

Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell

Your flirt finds me out
Teases the crack in me
Smittens me with hope
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe, possibly maybe.

As much as I definitely enjoy solitude
I wouldn't mind perhaps
Spending little time with you
Sometimes, sometimes

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

Uncertainty excites me
Baby
Who knows what's going to happen?
Lottery or car crash
Or you'll join a cult

Probably maybe, possibly love
This is probably maybe, possibly love, possibly

Mon petit vulcan
You're eruptions and disasters
I keep calm
Admiring the lava

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

Electric shocks?

With you dozen a day
But after a while I wonder
Where's that love you promised me?
Where is he ?

Possibly maybe probably love
Possibly maybe probably love

How can you offer me love like that?
My heart's burned
How can you offer me love like that?
I'm exhausted
Leave me alone

Possibly maybe, possibly maybe, possibly maybe.

Since we broke up
I'm using lipstick again
I'll suck my tongue
In remembrance of you

Possibly maybe, possibly maybe
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe
Possibly maybe, possibly maybe

I miss you

 I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
So special
But it hasn't happened yet
You are gorgeous
But I haven't met you yet
I remember
But it hasn't happened yet

And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I, I will meet you
I was peaking

But it hasn't happened yet
I haven't been given
My best souvenir
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
I know your habits
But wouldn't recognize you yet
 
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I miss you

I'm so impatient
I can't stand the wait
When will I get my cuddle?
Who are you?
 I know by now that you'll arrive
By the time I stop waiting
I miss you

Cover me

While I crawl into the unknown
Cover me

I'm going hunting for mysteries
Cover me

 I'm going to prove the impossible really exists
This is really dangerous
Cover me

But worth all the effort
Cover me

 I'm going to prove the impossible really exists

Headphones

Genius to fall asleep to your tape last night
So warm
Sounds go through the muscles
These abstract wordless
Movements, move move move move move
They start off cells that haven't been touched before
These cells are virgins
Waking up slowly

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep

Nothing will be the same
I'm fast asleep
I like this resonance
It elevates me
I don't recognize myself
This is very interesting

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep
I'm fast asleep now
I'm fast asleep

My headphones
They saved my life
Your tape
It lulled me to sleep
To sleep, to sleep

Before you wake up
So I can feel happier
To be safe up here with you

Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you
Safe up here with you

My spine

I adore
Back of necks
Beautifully shaven
Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine

 All those boys
With fascinating fingers
Working creating
Touching their tools
Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine
Huh

Tell me stories
Play me the tunes
That crack you up
 Gives me,
Always, always, always, always, always, always, always,
A pretty rush down my spine
Hah!


I miss you

Bjrk :

I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
You are gorgeous
But it hasn't happened yet
You are gorgeous
But I haven't met you yet
I remember
But it hasn't happened yet
So special
But it hasn't happened yet
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I will meet you
I was peaking
But it hasn't happened yet
I haven't been giving
My best souvenir
I miss you
But I haven't met you yet
I know your habits
But wouldn't regonize you yet
And if you believe in dreams
Or what is more important
That a dream can come true
I, I, I, I miss you

Rodney P :

I had a dream that I was missing you indeed
And if I miss you then you know that I'll be there with speed
I got that mister cool vibe for your mind, believe
I've never seen you but I've seen you've got the vibes I need
That's why I miss you, try to dismiss you, from my mind
Only for people often miss you but I seek to find
You gotta send me an emotion or a sign
Cause even though when all things must reveal in time
Still I miss you

Bjrk :

Miss you
I get so impatient
I can't stand the wait
When will I get my cuddle
Who are you?
I know by now that you'll arrive
By the time I stop waiting
Aaaaahhhhhhh Miss you
I miss you
So I miss you
I miss you
....
I miss you, miss you, miss you
...
I miss you....miss you

Isobel

In a forest pitch-dark
Glowed the tiniest spark
It burst into a flame
Like me, like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

In a heart full of dust
Lives a creature called lust
It surprises and scares
Like me,like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
 Nana na nana, nana na nana
 Nana na nana, nana na nana

In a tower of steel
Nature forges a deal
To raise wonderful hell
Like me, like me

My name Isobel
Married to myself
My love Isobel
Living by herself

Crawling in silence
A simple excuse
Nana na nana, nana na nana X6

You’ve been flirting again

You're all I ever wanted X2

All that she said was true
All that she said was true
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she said was true

All that she ever meant was good
All that she meant was good
Give her some time
Give her some space
All that she meant was good

How you reacted was right
How you reacted was right
Give her some space
Give her some time
All that she said was true

You're all I ever wanted X5

Cover me

Cover me
I'm going hunting, hunting,
Mysteries
Crawl into the unknown
This is really dangerous
This is really dangerous
This is really dangerous
I'm going hunting, hunting, hunting,
Mysteries, mysteries, mysteries, mysteries,
( What, what, what, what , what .. )

Army of me

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm,
Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm,
Army of me.

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm

Arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm, arm
Army of me.

Headphones

Genius to fall asleep to your tape last night
Sounds go through the muscles
These abstract wordless
Movements
They start off cells that haven't been touched before

Nothing will be the same
I like this resonance
It elevates me
I don't recognize myself
This is very interesting


Homogenic

Hunter

Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...
Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...

If travel is searching
And home has been found

I'm not stopping

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter
I'll bring back the goods
But I don't know when

I thought I could organize freedom
How Scandinavian of me
You sussed it out, didn't you
Yeah!

You could smell it
So you left me on my own
To complete the mission
Now I'm leaving it all behind

I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter, I'm the hunter
I'm going hunting
I'm the hunter Ooooohhh... I'm the hunter
I'm the hunter Ooooohhh... I'm the hunter
I'm ... the ... hunter...

Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...
Ooooohhh... Ooooohhh...

All these accidents,
That happen,
Follow the dot,
Coincidence,
Makes sense,
Only with you,
You don't have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

All that no-one sees,
You see,
What's inside of me,
Every nerve that hurts,
You heal,
Deep inside of me, oo-oohh,
You don't have to speak,
I feel.

Emotional landscapes,
They puzzle me - confuse,
Then the riddle gets solved,
And you push me up to this

State of emergency,
How beautiful to be,
State of emergency,
Is where I want to be.

Unravel

While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

So when you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


While you are away
My heart comes undone
Slowly unravels
In a ball of yarn
The devil collects it
With a grin
Our love, our love,
In a ball of yarn

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love

He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


He'll never return it

When you come back
We'll have to make new love


Bachelorette

I'm a fountain of blood
In the shape of a girl
You're the bird on the brim
Hypnotised by the Whirl

Drink me, make me feel real
Wet your beak in the stream
Game we're playing is life
Love is a two way dream

Leave me now, return tonight
Tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a path of cinders
Burning under your feet
You're the one who walks me
I'm your one way street

I'm a whisper in water
Secret for you to hear
You are the one who grows distant
When I beckon you near

Leave me now, return tonight
The tide will show you the way
If you forget my name
You will go astray
Like a killer whale
Trapped in a bay

I'm a tree that grows hearts
One for each that you take
You're the intruder hand
I'm the branch that you break

All neon like

Not 'til you halo all over me
I'll come over
Not 'til it shimmers 'round your skull
I'll be yours

I weave for you
The marvellous web
Glow in the dark threads
All neon like

The cocoon surrounds you
Embraces all
So you can sleep
Foetus-style

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you,
Henh-yeah!, henh-yeah

The soft distortion
Fills you up
Nourish nourish
Your turtleheart

And they will assist us
'Cause we're asking for help
And the luminous beam
It feeds you
Henh-yeah!, yeah!

Don't get angry with yourself
Don't, don't get angry with yourself
I'll heal you

With a razorblade
I'll cut a slit open
And the luminous beam
Feeds you honey, heals you

Don't get angry with yourself X4

I'll heal you, i'll heal you, luminous, i'll heal you

5 years

You think you're denying me of something
Well I've got plenty
You're the one who's missing out
But you won't notice
'Til after five years
If you'll live that long
You'll wake up
All loveless

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I'm so bored with cowards
That say they want
Then they can't handle

You can't handle love
You can't handle love
You just can't handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

What's so scary
Not a threat in sight
You just can't handle
You can't handle love

You can't handle love, baby
You can't handle love
It's obvious
You can't handle

I dare you
To take me on
I dare you
To show me your palms

I'm so bored of cowards
That say they want
Then they can't handle

You can't handle love, baby
You can't handle love,
It's obvious
You can't handle

I dare you, I dare you
I dare you, I dare you

Alarm call

Wo-oo-ooh hoh!

I have walked this earth
And watched people

It doesnt scare me at all

I can be sinsere
And say I like them

It doesnt scare me at all

** Gibberish **

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

I want to go on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the human race
From suffering

It doesnt scare me at all

I'm no fucking buddhist
But this is enlightenment

The less room you give me
The more space I've got

It doesnt scare me at all

** Gibberish **

You can't say no to hope
Can't say no to happiness

It doesnt scare me at all

I want to be on a mountain-top
With a radio and good batteries
And play a joyous tune and
Free the
A-human race
From suffering

It doesnt scare me at all

This is an alarm-call
So wake-up, wake-up now
Woo-oo-ooh!
Today has never happened
And it doesnt frighten me

It doesnt scare me at all

You can't say no to hope
You can't say no to happiness
Wo-oo-ooh!

It doesnt scare me at all, wo-oo-ooh! ...

All is full of love

You'll be given love
You'll be taken care of
You'll be given love
You have to trust it

Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at

Twist your head around
It's all around you
All is full of love
All around you

All is full of love
You just aint receiving
All is full of love
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of love
Your doors are all shut
All is full of love!

All is full of love, all is full of love
All is full of love, all is full of love ...

I've Seen It All

Bjrk
I've seen it all
I have seen the trees
I have seen the willow leaves
Dancing in the breeze

Tom Yorke
I've seen a man killed
By his best friend
And lives that were over
Before they were spent.

Bjrk & Tom Yorke
I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

Bjrk
You haven't seen elephants
Kings or Peru

Tom Yorke
I'm happy to say
I had better to do

Bjrk
What about China
Have you seen the Great Wall

Tom Yorke
All walls are great
If the roof doesn't fall
And the man you will marry
The home you will share

Bjrk
To be honest
I really don't care

[gibberish]

Tom Yorke
You've never been
To Niagara Falls

Bjrk
I have seen water
It's water, that's all

Tom Yorke
The Eiffel Tower
The Empire State

Bjrk
My pulse was as high
On my very first date

Tom Yorke
And your grandson's hand
As he plays with your hair

Bjrk
To be honest
I really don't care

[gibberish]

Bjrk & Yorke
I've seen it all
I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness
In one little spark
I've seen what I chose
And I've seen what I need
And that is enough
To want more would be greed
I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

Tom Yorke
You've seen it all
And all you have seen
You can always review on
Your own little screen
The light and the dark
The big and the small
Just keep in mind
You need no more at all

Bjrk & Tom Yorke
You've seen what you were
And know what you'll be
You've seen it all
There is no more to see

Sleepy-head, sleepy-head

All the love above

Comfort and protection

But don't ask me
What's gonna happen next
I know the future

Than spare you from that burden
It's gonna be hard
If I only could
Shelter you
From that pain
Just to make it easier on you

You are gonna have to find out for yourself
You are gonna have to find out for yourself
You are gonna have to find out for yourself

 In The Musicals

Why do I love it so much
What kind of magic is this
How come I can't help adore it
It's just another musical

No one minds it at all
If I'm having a ball
This is a musical

And there is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
There is always someone to catch me
When I'd fall

Why do I love you so much
What kind of magic is this

How come I can't help adore you
You are in a musical

I didn't mind it at all
You were having a ball
This is a musical

And you were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
You were always there to catch me
When I'd fall

I don't mind it at all
If you're having a ball
This is a musical

And I'll always be there to catch you
I will always be there to catch you

Train-whistles, sweet clementine
Blueberries dancers in line
Cobwebs, a bakery sign

Oh, a sweet clementine
Oh, dancers in line

If living is seeing
I'm holding my breath
In wonder, I wonder
What happen's next
A new world
A new day to see
See, see

I'm softly walking on air
Halfway to heaven frontier
Sunlight unfolds in my hair
Oh, I'm walking on air
Oh, to heaven frontier

In wonder, I wonder
What happens next
A new world
A new day to see

Vespertine

Hidden Place

Through the warmthest
Cord of care
Your love was sent to me

I'm not sure
What to do with it
Or where to put it

I'm so close to tear
And so close to
Simply calling you up
And simply suggesting

We go to the hidden place
That we go to the hidden place
We go to the hidden place
We go to a hidden place

Now I have
Been slightly shy
And I can smell a pinch of hope
To almost have allowed once fingers
To stroke
The fingers I was given to touch with
But careful, careful
There lies my passion, hidden
There lies my love
I'll hide it under a blanket
Lull it to sleep

I'll keep it in a hidden place
I'll keep it in a hidden place
Keep it in a hidden place
Keep it in a hidden place

He's
The beautifullest
Fragilest
Still strong
Dark and divine
And the littleness of his movements
Hides himself
He invents a charm
That makes him invisible
Hides in the air
Can I hide there too?
Hide in the air of him
Seek solace
Sanctuary

In that hidden place
In a hidden place
In a hidden place
We'll stay in a hidden place
Ooohh in a hidden place
We'll live in a hidden place
We'll be in a hidden place
In a hidden place

Cocoon

Who would have known
That a boy like him
Would have entered me lightly
Restoring my blisses

Who would have known
That a boy like him
After sharing my core
Would stay going nowhere

Who would have known
A beauty this immense
Who would have known
A saintly trance
Who would have known
Miraculous breath
To inhale a beard
Loaded with courage

Who would have known
That a boy like him
Possessed of magical
Sensitivity
Would approach a girl like me
Who caresses cradles his head
In a bosom

He slides inside
Half awake, half asleep
We faint back
Into sleephood
When I wake up
The second time
In his arms
Gorgeousness
He's still inside me

Who would have known
Who ahhh
Who would have known

A train of pearls
Cabin by cabin
Is shot precisely
Across an ocean

From a mouth
From a
From a mouth
Of a girl like me
To a boy
To a boy
To a boy

It's Not Up To You

I wake up
And the day feels
Broken
I tilt my head
I'm trying to get an angle
'Cause the evening
I've always longed for
It could still happen

How do I master
The perfect day
Six glasses of water
Seven phonecalls

If you leave it alone
It might just happen
Anyway

It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Well it never really was
It's not up to you

If you wake up
And the day feels
Ah broken
Just lean into the crack
(Just lean into the crack)
And it will tremble
Ever so nicely
Notice
How it sparkles
Down there

I can decide
What I give
But it's not up to me
What I get given
Unthinkable surprises
About to happen
But what they are

It's not up to you
Well it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh it never really was
It's not up to you
Oh, me, share
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
Oh, it never really was
It's not up to you
Well, it never really was
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you
It's not up to you

Clinging

There's too much

Pagan Poetry

Pedalling through
The dark currents
I find
An accurate copy
A blueprint
Of the pleasure
In me

Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
A secret code carved

He offers
A handshake
Crooked
Five fingers
They form a pattern
Yet to be matched

On the surface simplicity
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Pagan poetry

Morsecoding signals (signals)
They pulsate (wake me up) and wake me up
(pulsate) from my hibernate

On the surface simplicity
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
But the darkest pit in me
It's pagan poetry
Swirling black lilies totally ripe
Pagan poetry

Swirling black lilies totally ripe

I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
I love him, I love him
She loves him, she loves him

This time
She loves him, she loves him
I'm gonna keep it to myself
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
This time
I'm gonna keep me all to myself
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over
She loves him, she loves him
She loves him, she loves him
And he makes me want to hand myself over

Looking hard for
Moments of shine
From twilight
To twilight
Ahhhhh...
Utter mundane

Goddess sparkle
Shoot me
Beyond this suffer
The need
Is great

Ahhhh...

Goddess sparkle
A mountain shade
Suggests your shape
I tumbled down
On my knees
Fill the mouth
With snow
The way it melts
I wish
To melt
Into you

Ahhh...
Utter mundane

Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off
Spark the sun off me


An echo a stain

She touched
My arm
And smiled

One of these days
Soon
Very soon
Love you 'til then
Love you 'til then

Feel my breath
On your neck
And your heart
Will race

Don't say no to me
You can't say no to me
I won't see you
Denied

I'm sorry you saw that
I'm sorry he did it
An echo
A stain
A stain

I can't say no to you
I can't say no to you
Say nothing

Free falling
Complete

Sun in My Mouth

( From the poem "Wade" by E.E. Cummings )

I will wade out
Till my thighs are steeped
In burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth
And leap into the ripe air
Alive with closed eyes
To dash against darkness

In the sleeping curves of my body
Shall enter fingers
Of smooth mastery
With chasteness of sea-girls
Will I complete the mystery
Of my flesh
Will I complete the mystery
Of my flesh
My flesh

Heirloom

( Original from : Console - Rocket In The Pocket : Crabcraft )

I have a recurrent dream
Everytime I loose my voice
I swallow little glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me

And during the night
They do a trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above my bed

While I'm asleep
My mother and son pour into me
Warm glowing oil
Into my wide open throat

I have a recurrent dream
Everytime I feel a hoarseness
I swallow warm glowing lights
My mother and son baked for me, oh

They make me feel so much better
They make me feel better

We have a recurrent dream
Everytime we loose our voices
We dream swallow little lights
Our mother and son bake for us

During the night
They do a little trapeze walk
Until they're in the sky
Right above our heads
While we're asleep
My mother and son pour into us
Pour into us
Warm glowing oil
Into our wide open throats

I have a recurrent dream

They make me feel better
They make me feel better

Harm of will

If there is a troubador washing
It is he
If there is a man about town
It is he
If there is one to be sought
It is he
If there are nine she is
They are bought for me

This way is as is she
And he placed her
Unclothed
Long long longlegged
Atop of the family tree

And if he has chosen the point
While she is under him
Then leave her coily placed crouched sucking him
For it is I with
Her on knee

** Gibberish **

I leave her
Without pith or feel
And leave her be
Leave her be
For he controls what therell be
He makes his face known to none
For if he is seen
Then all will
And all will know
Know me

Unison

One hand love the other
So much on me

Born stubborn me
Will always be
Before you count
One two three
I will have grown my own private branch
Of this tree

You gardener
You discipliner
Domestically
I can obey all of your rules
And still be, be

I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

I thrive best hermit style
With a beard and a pipe
And a parrot on each side
But now I can't do this without you

I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise
I never thought I would compromise

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

One hand love the other
So much on me

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's unite tonight

Let's unite tonight
We shouldn't fight
Embrace you tight
Let's
Ooohhhh ooohh

Unison

Pleasure is all mine

The pleasure is all mine
To get to be the generous one
Is the strongest stance

The pleasure is all mine
To finally let go and evenly
Be flown

Who gives most
Who gives most
Who gives most

The pleasure is all mine
Women like us we strengthen most host-like

When in doubt, give
When in doubt,  give
When in doubt, give

Show me forgiveness

Show me forgiveness
For having lost faith in myself
And let my own interior up
To inferior forces
The shame is endless
But if soon start forgiveness
The girl might live

My farm
My farm and yours
Sleeps happily at peace
Falls snow
Silent at dusk on earth
My grass
My grass and yours
Keeps the earth til spring

Nesting spring
Hid at the hill's root
Awake as are we
Faith in life
Quiet cold spring
Eye of the depths
Into the firmament
Staring still in the night

Far away
Wakes the great world
Mad with grim enchantment
Disquieted
Fearful of night and day
Your eyes
Fearless and serene
Smile bright at me

My hope
Your blest smile
Rouses verse from sleep
The earths rests
Silent in arms of snow
Lily white
Closes her blue eyes
My little girl

Who is it ?

His embrace, a fortress
It fuels me and places
A skeleton of trust
Right beneath us
Bone by bone
Stone by stone

If you ask yourself
Patiently
And carefully
Who is it?
Who is it?

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now they're handing it over
They're handing it over
Handing it over

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now -- they're handing it over
Handing it over

He demands a closeness
We all have earned a lightness
Carry my joy on the left
Carry my pain on the right

If you ask yourself
Now patiently
And carefully
Who is it?

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
And I'm handing it over
Handing it over
Handing

Who is it - that never lets you down?
Who is it - that gave you back your crown?
And the ornaments are
They're going around
Now I'm handing it over
Handing it over

Submarine

When will it be time
To document
Do it now!
This submarine behaviour
Do it now!
When time?
To return
Do it now!
Do it now!
Shake us out of the heavy deep sleep
Shake us now!
Do it now!
Do it now!
Shake us out of the heavy deep sleep
Do it now!

Desired constellation

It's tricky when
You feel someone
Has done
Something on your behalf

It's slippery when
Your sense of justice
Murmurs underneath

And is asking you
How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

With a palm full of stars
I throw them like dice
(repeatedly)

On the table
(repeat - repeatedly)
I shake them like dice
And throw them on the table
Repeatedly
(repeatedly)
Until the desired constellation appears

How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

(And you hear - how am I going to make it right?)

How am I going to make it right?
How am I going to make it right?

(How am I going to make it right?)

Oceana

One breath away
From Mother Oceania
Your nimble feet make prints
In my sand

You have done
Good for yourselves
Since you left my wet embrace
And crawled ashore

Every boy is a snake is a lily
Every pearl is a lynx is a girl

Sweet like harmony
Made into flesh
You dance by my side
Children sublime

You show me continents
I see the islands
You count the centuries
I blink my eyes

Hawks and sparrows
Race in my waters
Stingrays are floating
Across the sky

Little ones
My sons and my daughters
Your sweat is salty - I am why
I am why
I am why
Your sweat is salty - I am why
I am why
I am why

Sonnets / unrealities xi

( E.E. Cummings Poem - 'it may not always be so' )

It may not always be so
And I say
And if your lips
Which I have loved
Should touch another's
And your dear strong fingers clutch
Her heart
As mine in time
Not far away

If on another's face your sweet hair lay
In such a silence
As I know
Or such great writhing words
As, uttering overmuch
Stand helpelessly before the spirit at bay

If this should be
I say
If this should be
You of my heart
Send me a little word
That I may go
Unto her
And take her hands
Saying

Accept all happiness from me

Then I shall turn my face
And hear one bird
Sing terribly afar
In the lost lands

Mouth's cradle

There is yet
Another one
That follows me
Wherever I go
And supports me
Ah, this tooth is warmthlike
This tooth is warmthlike
This tooth is warmthlike

And these teeth
Are
A ladder up to his mouth
All these teeth are a ladder
That I walk
That you can walk to
If you want
If you want, up to
The mouth, mouth's cradle
Up to the mouth's cradle

He always has a hope for me
Always sees me when nothing else
And everyone have left
Can care
That ghost is brighter than anyone
And fulfills me with hope
Those beams assure me

And you can use
These teeth
As a
Ladder up to
Mouths cradle
The mouths cradle
And you can follow
These notes I'm singing
Up to the mouth's cradle
The mouth's cradle

The simplicity of the ghostlike beast
The purity of what he wants
And where it goes
Always love
Always loves you
Always loves with, infrared love

And you can use
Those teeth
As a ladder up to
Mouth's cradle
Mouth's cradle
You can use
Those teeth
Follow my voice
Tooth by tooth
Up to the
Mouth's cradle
The mouth's cradle

I need a shelter to build an altar
Away from all the Osama's and Bushes

I need a shelter to, to build an altar
Away from all the Osama's and Bushes

Triumph of a heart

 The nerves are sending
Shimmering signals
All through my fingers
The veins support
Blood that gushes
Pulsively towards

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

The stubborn trunks
Of these legs of mine
Serve as pathways
For my favourite fuel
Heading upwards towards
My kidneys

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

Smooth
Soft, red
Velvety lungs
Are pushing a network
Of oxygen joyfully
Through a nose
Through a mouth
But all enjoys
All enjoys

The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all
The triumph of a heart - that gives all : that gives all

Komid

( Japanese Bonus Track )

It means COME in Icelandic.
She sings her infamous "alt sem hann sr" which is a based on her native Icelandic.
It is said to mean something like "everything that he sees."
The song is sung in gibberish. She does sing "hn er komið", which is Icelandic for "she is coming."
But to be grammatically correct, it would be "hn hefur komið" or "hn kom"

Drawing Restraint 9

Gratitude

( Vocals : Will Oldham )

July 13, 1946

Dear General MacArthur,

With your permission
I offer wishes of good health
During this heat
That burns anything

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

Recently, fulfilling
Your heart’s desire
You removed the whaling
Moratorium.
Your gesture brings
A much needed food
To our community
And families

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

A million year old fossil
I send to you
This comes from my family
And the ancient sea
A prehistoric impression
Of the modern krill
She feeds the noble whale
And offers you longevity

The words I slowly put together
Do not flow easily, they only fill my heart

Finally, please take good care in the heat.

Sincerely yours,
Shizuka

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
Figure and field, both, carrier, carried.
Holographic paradigm,
The whole in every part.

Warm, viscous body, cooling
In marine air embrace.
Curing, skinning over
A still molten core.

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
Skin seascape in suspension.
Holographic entrypoint,
Each part reflects the whole.

Skin slit, consensual knife,
She cuts his figure, he flenses her field.
External resistance freeing,
Internal relation emerging.

Vessel, host, occidental guests,
To pattern, comes blood, giving form.
Holographic condition,
The whole in every part.

Warm blood, terrestrial guests,
Take to the southern sea, breathing.
Antarctic host and vessel, proud,
Cetacean guests returning.

*** Thanx a lot to www.Bjork.com for this translation ***

Cetacea

Into pattern
Flowing blood
Giving form

In every part
The whole you see

Into pattern
Flowing blood
Giving form

From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you
From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you
From the moment of commitment, nature conspires to help you

Nature conspires to help you

Volta

Earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Turmoil! Carnage!

Here come the earth intruders
We are the paratroopers
Stampede of sharp shooters
Comes right from voodoo

With our feet thumping
With our feet marching
Grinding skeptics
Into the soil

Shower of goodness coming to
End the doubt pouring over
Shower of goodness coming to end

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

I have guided my bones
Through some voltage
And loved them still
And loved them too

Metallic carnage!
Feriocity!
Feel the speed!

We are the earth intruders
We are the sharp shooters
Flock of parashooters
Necessary voodoo

There is turmoil out there
Carnage! Rambling!
What is to do but dig
Dig bones out of earth

Mudgraves! Timber!
Morbid trenches!

Here come the earth intruders
Stampede of resistance
We are the canoneers
Necessary voodoo

And the beast
With many heads
And arms rolling
Steamroller!

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

Forgive this tribe

We are the earth intruders
We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
We are the earth intruders

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

We are the earth intruders
Muddy with twigs and branches
Marching

Wanderlust

I am leaving this harbour
Giving urban a farewell
Its habitants seem too keen on God
I cannot stomach their rights and wrong

I have lost my origin
And I don't want to find it again
Rather sailing into nature's laws
And be held by ocean's paws

Wanderlust
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did I imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this I wished for
Or will i want more

Lust for comfort
Suffocates the soul
This relentless
Restlessness
Liberates me
Sets me free

I feel at home whenever
The unknown surrounds me
I receive its embrace
Aboard my floating house

Wanderlust
Relentlessly craving wanderlust
Peel off the layers
Until you get to the core

Did i imagine it would be like this
Was it something like this I wished for
Or will i want more

Wanderlust
From island to island
Wanderlust
United in movement
Wonderful
I enjoy it with you

Wanderlust
Wanderlust
Can you spot a pattern

Relentlessly restless
Restless relentlessly
Restless relentlessly

Can you spot a pattern

The dull flame of desire

Bjrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire

Antony :
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Bjrk :
Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still

Antony :
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

Bjrk :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Bjrk :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire
And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :
Dull flame

Bjrk :
I see the dull flame of desire

Antony :

I see the dull flame

Bjrk :
I see the dull flame

Antony :
I love your eyes, my dear
Their splendid, sparkling fire
When suddenly you raise them so
To cast a swift embracing glance

Like lightning flashing in the sky
But there's a charm that is greater still
When my love's eyes are lowered
When all is fired by passion's kiss

And through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire
Through the downcast lashes
I see the dull flame of desire

Innocence

I once had no fears
None at all
And then when I had some
To my surprise I grew to like both
Scared or brave or without them
The thrill of fear
Thought I’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was
Untouchable
Innocence roared
Still amazes
When I once was
Innocent
It’s still here
But in different places

Neurosis only attaches itself to
Fertile ground where it can flourish
The thrill of fear
Thought I’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When I once was fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes
Untouchable innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

Fear is a powerful drug
Overcome it and you think you can do anything

Should I save myself for later
Or generously give
Fear of loosing energy is draining
It’s locks up your chest
Shuts down the heart
Miserly stingy

Let’s open up, share !

When I once was fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes
Untouchable innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

*** Thanx a lot to rir for this one ***

I see who you are

I see who you are
Behind the skin and the muscles
I see who you are
And when you'll get older later

I will see the same girl
The same soul
Lioness, fireheart
Passionate lover

And afterwards
Later this century
When you and I have
Become corpses

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you
Up against me
Tightly
And enjoy every bit of you

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
Let me push you
Up against me
Tightly

Let's celebrate now
All this flesh on our bones
And enjoy every bit of you

I see who you are

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Up-on-the-toe
There is a view
Up-on-the-toe
And the spine
Straight and erect
Hungry and curious
Up-on-the-toe
Looking forward to

The air is thinner here

She came here to lose face
Got down on her knees
The beast is back
On 4 legs
Set her clock to the moon
Raises her spine

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Up-on-the-toe
Looking

I have been filled with
Steam for months, for years
Same old cloud
Claustrophobic in me

Let it burst
Like old train sounds
Make them leave me, nature

Vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae
By vertebrae

My arms ooze out of my shoulders
And the arms ooze out of my shoulders

I curl my tail
Inwards, inwards
Set my clock on the moon

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Please release
This pressure off me

Please release
This pressure off me

Please release
This pressure off me

Pneumonia

Get over the sorrow, girl
The world is always going to be made of this
You can trust in it
Unless you breath in
Bravely

I adore how you simply surrender to high
And your lungs
They're mourning
T-b style

All the stillborn love that could have happened
All the moments you should have embraced
All the moments you should have not locked up

Understand
So clearly

To shut yourself up
Would be the hugest crime of them all
Hugest crime of them all
You're just crying after all
To not want them humans around any more

Get over that sorrow, girl
Get over it

Hope

Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind

Whats the lesser of two evils
If a suicide bomber made to look pregnant
Manages to kill her target or not
Whats the lesser of two evils

Whats the lesser of two evils
If she kills them or dies in vain
Nature has fixed no limits on our hopes
Whats the lesser of two evils

Whats the lesser of two evils
If her bump was fake or if it was real

Here's my version of it, internal whirlwind
I have fostered since childhood

Well, I dont care
Love is all
I dare to drown
To be proven wrong

My juvenile

Down the corridor
I send warmth, I send warmth
Down the staircase
I send warmth, I send warmth

Thank you for again
To get to be able
To send warmth, to send warmth
Perhaps I set you too free, too fast, too young

But the intentions were pure
But the intentions were pure

My juvenile
My juvenile
My juvenile

I truly say
You are my biggest love
I clumsily tried to
Free you from me
One last embrace
To tie a sacred ribbon

This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go
This is an offer to better the last let-go

The intentions were pure

Biophilia

Moon

As the lukewarm hands of the gods
Came down and gently picked my adrenaline pearls
They placed them in their mouths
And rinsed all of the fear out
Nourished them with their saliva

All rested

As if the healthiest past-time
Is being in life-threatening circumstances
And once again be reborn

All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy
All birthed and happy

Best way to start-a-new
Is to fail miserably
Fail at loving
And fail at giving
Fail at creating a flow
Then realign the whole
And kick into the starthole

And kick into the starthole
And kick into the starthole

To risk all is the end all and the beginning all
To risk all is the end all and the beginning all

Thunderbolt

Stirring at water's edge
Cold froth on my twig
My mind in whirls
Wanders around desire

May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I or have I too often now
Craving miracles
Craving miracles

No one imagines the light shock I need
And Ill never know
From who's hands deeply humble
Dangerous gifts as such to mine come

May I, should I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
Craving miracles

My romantic gene is dominant
And it hungers for union
Universal intimacy
All embracing

May I, should I or have I too often
Craved miracles
May I, can I or have I too often
Craved miracles
Craved

Waves irregularly striking
Wind stern in my face
Thunderstorm come
Scrape those barnacles of me

May I, may I or should I too often
Crave miracles
May I or should I or have I too often

All my body parts are one
As lightning hits my spine
Sparkling
Prime runs through me
Revive my wish
Inviolable

May I, can I or have I too often
Craving miracles
May I, can I, should I or have I too often
Craving miracles

Listen how they glow
Listen how they grow
Listen how they glow

It's the sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety
It's the sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety

Cosmogony

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was an empty sea, until a silver fox
And her cunning mate began to sing
A song that became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was a coal-black egg, until the god inside
Burst out and from its shattered shell
He made what became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make me wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Was an endless land, until our ancestors
Woke up and before they went back to sleep
They carved it up into the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Make wonder

And they say, back then our universe
Wasn't even there, until a sudden bang
And then there was light, was sound, was matter
And it all became the world we know

Heaven
Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me
Dance eternal

Hollow

Hollow
My ancestors have access
Hollow
I'm falling down the abyss
Hollow
Looking for some answers

Generations of mothers sailing in
Somehow they all were shipfolks

Hollow
The ground is opening up
Swallows
Me up

The trunk of dna

Now come forth
All species
Hollow

Like a bead in necklace
Thread me
Upon this chain
I'm part of it
The everlasting necklace

Jewels after jewels after jewels after
Jewels after jewels after jewels

I yearn to be belong
Let me belong
Let me belong

Virus

Like a virus needs a body
As soft tissue feeds on blood
Someday Ill find you, the urge is here

Like a mushroom on a tree trunk
As the protein transmutates
I knock on your skin
And I am in

The perfect match
You and me
I adapt, contagious
You open up, saying welcome

Like a flame that seeks explosives
As gun powder needs a war
I feast inside you, my host is you

The perfect match
You and I
You fail to resist
My crystalline charm

Like a virus
Patient hunter
I'm waiting for you
Im starving for you

My sweet adversary
My sweet adversary
My sweet adversary

Sacrifice

Why can't you give her room
Respect her spatial needs
I feel you compress her
Into a small space

With clairvoyance
She knew what you needed
And she gave it to you
Now her desires are repressed
Arrows in the flesh

When she found your love
Her nature bowed her head
She surrendered
She renounced the world for you
Now she's poisoned by demands
You cannot answer

Why this sacrifice
Now she regrets the whole thing
A delayed reaction
When she left her craft voluntarily
For your nest, for your love
Did you understand
Appreciate

Build a bridge to her
Initiate a touch
Before it's too late
Say the words to her
That will make her shine
Tell her that you love her

Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow
Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow

Your generosity will show
In the volume of her glow

Mutual Core

I shuffle around
The tectonic plates
In my chest
You know I gave it all
Trying to match our continents
To change seasonal shift
To form a mutual core

As fast as your fingernail grows
The Atlantic ridge drifts
To counteract distance
You know I gave it all
Can you hear the effort
Of the magnetic strife
Shuffling of columns
To form a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know that I had it in me
Withheld your love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you

You hid the key to our continuity
I didn't know you had it in you
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know, you didn't know

What you resist persists
Nuance makes heat
To counteract distance
I know you gave it all

Offered me harmony
If things were done your way
My Eurasian plate subsumed
Forming a mutual core

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
Withheld your love, an unspent capsule
I didn't know you had it in you

This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know I had it in me
This eruption undoes stagnation
You didn't know, you didn't know

Solstice

When your eyes pause on the ball
That hangs on the third branch from the Star
You remember why it is dark, and why it gets light again

The Earth, like the heart, slopes in its seat
And like that it travels along an elliptical path
Drawn into the darkness

An unpolished pearl in sky-black palm of hands
Flickering sun-flame

And then you remember that you're yourself
You are a light-bearer, a light-bearer
Receiving radiance from others

Flickering sun-flame
Unpolished Earth in the palm of hand

Vulnicura

Stonemilker

A juxtapositioning fate
Find our mutual coordinate

Moments of clarity are so rare
I better document this
At last the view is fierce
All that matters is

Who is open chested
And who has coagulated
Who can share
And who has shut down the chances

Show me emotional respect
Oh, respect, oh respect
I have emotional, oh needs, oh needs
I wish to synchronize our feelings
Our feelings, our, oh, oh

What is it that I have
That makes me feel your pain
Like milking a stone
To get you to say it

Who is open
And who has shut up
And if one feels closed
How does one stay open

We have emotional needs, oh needs, oh needs
I wish to synchronize our feelings, our feelings
Oh show some emotional respect, oh respect

A juxtapositioning fate
Find our mutual coordinate

Lionsong

Maybe he will come out of this
Maybe he won't
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he will come out of this
I smell declarations of solitude
Maybe he will come out of this

Vietnam vet comes after the war
Lands in my house
This wild lion doesn't fit in this chair

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he won't
I'm not taming no animal
Maybe he will come out of this

Once it was simple
One feeling at a time
It reached its peak then transformed
These abstract complex feelings
I just don't know
How to handle them
Should I throw oil
On one of his moods
But which one
Make the joy peak
Humour peak
Frustration peak
Anything peak
For clarity

Maybe he will come out of this loving me
Maybe he won't
I'm not taming no animal
Maybe he will come out of this

Maybe he will come out of this
Maybe he won't
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way
Somehow I'm not too bothered
Either way

I refuse it's a sign of maturity
To be stuck in complexity

I demand clarity
Either way

Maybe he will come out of this

Somehow I'm not too bothered
Or he will feel solitaire
Somehow im not too bothered
Id just like to know

History Of Touches

I wake you up
In the middle of the night
To express my love for you
Stroke your skin and feel you
Naked I can feel all of you
At same moment

I wake you up
In the night feeling
This is our last time together
Therefore sensing all the moments
We've been together
Being here at the same time
Every single touch
We ever touch each other
Every single fuck
We had together
Is in a wondrous time lapse
With us here at this moment
The history of touches
Every single archive
Compressed into a second
All with us here as wake you up

Black Lake

Our love was my womb
But our bond has broken
My shield is gone
My protection is taken
I am one wound
My pulsating body
Suffering being

My heart is enormous lake
Black with potion
I am blind
Drowning in this ocean

My soul torn apart
My spirit is broken
Into the fabric of all
He is woven

You fear my limitless emotions
I am bored of your apocalyptic obsessions
Did I love you too much
Devotion bent me broken
So I rebelled
Destroyed the icon

I did it for love
I honoured my feelings
You betrayed your own heart
Corrupted that organ

Family was always our sacred mutual mission
Which you abandoned

You have nothing to give
Your heart is hollow
I'm drowned in sorrows
No hope in sight of ever recover
Eternal pain and horrors

I am a glowing shiny rocket
Returning home
As I enter the atmosphere
I burn off layer by layer

Family

Is there a place
Where I can pay respects
For the death of my family
Show some respect
Between the three of us
There is the mother and the child
Then there is the father and the child
But no man and a woman
No triangle of love

So where do I go
To make an offering
I fall on my knees
Lay my flowers
Burn incense
Light the candles

So where do I go
To make an offering
To mourn our miraculous
Triangle
Father, mother, child
Father, mother, child

How will I sing us
Out of this sorrow
Build a safe bridge
For the child
Out of this danger
Danger

I raise a monument of love
There is a swarm of sound
Around our heads
And we can hear it
And we can get healed by it
It will relieve us from the pain
It will make us a part of
This universe of solutions
This place of solutions
This location of solutions

God save my daughter
God save our daughter
God save our daughter...

Notget

Once you fell out of love
Our love couldn't carry you
And I didn't even notice
For our love
Kept me save from death

You doubted the light
And the shelter it can give
For in love we are immortal
Eternal and safe from death

If I regret us
I'm denying my soul to grow
Don't remove my pain
It is my chance to heal

We carry the same wound
But have different cures
Similar injuries
But opposite remedies

After our love ended
Your arms don't carry me
Without love I feel the abyss
Understand your fear of death

I will not forget
This not get
Will you not regret
Having love let go

After our love ended
Your spirit entered me
Now we are the guardians
We keep her safe from death

Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death
Love will keep us safe from death

Atom Dance

(featuring Antony Hegarty)

We are each others hemispheres

I am fine tuning my soul
To the universal wavelength
No one is a lover alone
I propose an atom dance

Our hearts are coral reefs in low tide
Love is the ocean we crave
Restlessly turning around and around
I am dancing towards transformation

Learning by love to open it up
Let this ugly wound breathe
We fear unconditional heart space
Healed by atom dance

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me
We are each others hemispheres

We aim at peeling off
Dead layers of loveless love
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
Becoming themselves fully
It scares them off

When you feel the flow as primal love
Enter the pain and dance with me

[Antony Hegarty]
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

No one is a lover alone, alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

Atoms are laughing at last
Atoms are laughing at last
At last, at last
Atoms are

No one is a lover alone

[Antony Hegarty]
No one is a lover alone
Most hearts fear their own home
You are my second hemisphere, hemisphere
The atoms are dancing, dancing

Mouth Mantra

My throat was stuffed
My mouth was sewn up
Banned from making noise
I was not heard

All calmly

Remove this hindrance
My throat feels stuck
I was not allowed
I was not heard

I was not heard
I was not heard
I was not heard

There is vocal sadness
I was separated
From what I can do
What I'm capable of

Need to break up
Vicious habits
Do something
I haven't done before

In vow of silence
Explore the negative space
Around my mouth
It implodes
Black hole
With jaw fallen in
In fallen jaw
Jaw fallen in
I am not hurt

This tunnel has enabled
Thousands of sounds
I thank this trunk
Noise pipe

I have followed a path
That took sacrifices
Now I sacrifice this scar
Can you cut it off

Quicksand

Define her abyss
Show it respect
Then a celestial nest
Will grow above

When I'm broken I am whole
And when I'm whole I'm broken

Our mother's philosophy
It feels like quicksand
And if she sinks
I'm going down with her

Locate her black lake
The steam from this pit
Will form a cloud
For her to live on

When she's broken she is whole
And when she's whole she's broken

Our mother's philosophy
It feels like quicksand
And if she sinks
I'm going down with her

Hackle this darkness
Up to the light
Where choreographed oxygen
Embroiders the air

When we're broken we are whole
And when we're whole we're broken

We are the siblings of the sun
Let's step into this beam
Every time you give up
You take away our future
And my continuity and my daughter
And her daughter
And her daughter
And her daughter
