Bjork - Fossora Lyrics






Atopos

Are these not just excuses to not connect?
Our differences are irrelevant
Too only name the flaws
Are excuses to not connect

I bow to all that you've given me
Thank you for staying while we learn
To find our resonance where we do connect
To find our resonance where we do connect

If we don't grow outwards towards love
We'll implode inwards towards destruction
If my plant doesn't reach towards you
There's internal erosion towards all
Pursuing the light too hard it's a form of hiding

Oh (oh), oh (oh)

Are these not just excuses to not connect?
Our differences are irrelevant
To insist on absolute justice at all times
It blocks connection

Our union is stronger
Our union is stronger than us

Hope is a muscle
That allows us to connect
Hope is a muscle
Hope is a muscle
Hope is a muscle
Hope is a muscle
That allows us to connect

Ovule

I have placed a glass egg
Above us floating
An oval ovule
In a dark blood red void
Carries our digital selves
Embracing and kissing

My skin-mud dense by you
I anchor our darks
I anchor our darks
Sleep with one eye open
Watching our sub-selves

The keel of our ship
These obstacles are just teaching us
So we can merge even deeper
Into our own personal mineral
Fuse alloy, ship ahoy
The hostility a broken heart endures
The velocity of the injury
Is returned (is returned) to the world
With the same grin showing teeth

When I was a girl
I felt love was a building
I marched towards
but deadly demonic divorces demolished the ideal
Now with your romantic intelligence
a sensual tenderness
We dissolve old habits
and place a glass egg above us floating
In the dark blooded oval void
Our lovemaking avatars in a shell

Sorrowful Soil

Into sorrowful soil (sorrowful soil)
Our roots are dug
Into sorrowful soil (sorrowful soil)
Our roots are dug (our roots)
Into sorrowful soil
Our roots are dug
Into sorrowful soil (sorrowful soil)
Our roots are dug (our roots are dug, are dug)

In a woman's lifetime
She gets four-hundred eggs
But only two or three nests
Woven with a mother's life force (woven with a mother's life force)
Emotional textile (woven with a mother's life force)
Self-sacrificial (woven with a mother's life force)
This is emotional textile (woven with a mother's life force)
Self-sacrificial, self-sacrificial

Nihilist happening
Cut through this nihilist happening
You did well
You, you did your best
Well, you did your best, you did well (you, you did well)
You did-did, did-did-did, did well
You did, did, did-did-did-did-did-did-did well
You did, did, did-did-did-did well
You did well

Ancestress

My skull, it is my cathedral
Where this matrimort takes place
When I was a girl, she sang for me
In falsetto, lullabies with sincerity
I thank her for her integrity

My ancestress clock is ticking
Her once vibrant rebellion is fading
I am her hope keeper
I assure hope is there
At, at all times

My ancestress has left all manners
Her pulsating skin rebelling
The doctors she despised
Placed a pacemaker inside her

When you're out of time
Oh, how you look back changes
Did you punish us for leaving?
Are you sure we hurt you?
Was it just not "living?"

She had idiosyncratic sense of rhythm
Dyslexia, the ultimate freeform
She invents words and adds syllables
Handwriting, language all her own

I don't have that story in my mouth
When you die, you bring with you what you've given

The machine of her breathed all night
While she rested
Revealed her resilience
And then it didn't

You see with your own eyes
But hear with your mother's
There's fear of being absorbed
By the other

By now, we share the same flesh
As much as I tried to escape it
This is no mediocre debris
My ancestress this is

The odor of our final parting
Those have been
The perfume of separation for centuries
The perfume of separation for centuries
Ancestress

Nature wrote this psalm
It expands this realm
Translucent skin let go of
A cold palm embalmed

Fagurt Er í Fjörðum

Fagurt er í fjörðum
Þá frelsarinn lánar veðrið blítt
Heyið grænt í görðum
Grös og heilagfiskið nýtt
En þegar vetur að oss fer að sveigja
Veit ég enga verri sveit um veraldarreit
Menn og dýr þá deyja

Victimhood

Victimhood, I heed the call
To step out of victimhood
Has a saintly glow, holier than thou
It erased my shadow, shadow
Only bird's-eye view
Can help me transcend this archetype

And who am I that this has happened to?
Victimhood
Rejection it left a void
That is never ever satisfied
Sunk into victimhood

Felt the world owed me love
Only bird's-eye view
Can help me transgress out of this hole

Who am I that this has happened to?
To transgress us beyond our tragedy
I took one for the team

I sacrificed myself to save us (I sacrificed myself)
I rejected myself (I rejected)
Self-sacrificed myself
Felt sorry for myself
To transgress us beyond this tragedy
I sacrificed myself to the entity
To transgress us beyond our tragedy (to save us, to save us)
I sacrificed myself

Victimhood, victimhood
I heed a call out of victimhood
Out of, out, out of victimhood
Here I go now

Allow

The warm open wind on my skin
Primordial plants glistening
With moisture direct it at me
Erect my hair fossilized
With salt and crust

Allow, allow, allow
Allow you to grow
Allow, allow, allow, allow
Allow, allow, allow
Allow me to grow
(Allow, allow, to grow)

I look up at the treetops
I will braid those twigs together
Create a cathedral ceiling above me
How I long to float there midair
Between the branches
Amongst impossible magic

Allow, allow, allow
Allow, allow (you to grow)
Allow it to happen
Allow, allow, allow
Allow, allow

I made a moon, translucent
I put it outside for someone like you
How mysterious I must feel to you
The universe and the sky too
My little phoenix
When you burst out a song from my lips, oh

Fungal City

Fungal city, subterranean
Carve the forest floor
We walk on this sunken mystery
Trunks bursting through the moss from

Should I soften the blow of life on him?
Cottonwool cocoon him?

His capacity for love is enormous
His vibrant optimism happens to be my faith too

His body calligraphs the space above my bed
Horizontal signature on my skin
I'm in rapture, ooh (I'm in rapture, I'm in rapture, I'm in rapture)
Perfumed velvet darkness

Should I soften the blow of life on him?
Should I soften the blow of life on him?
Cottonwool cocoon him?

His capacity for love is enormous
His celebrational intelligence is ridiculous
His capacity for love encourages me to have (for love)
Capacity for love (is enormous, yeah yeah)

This vitality repolarizes me
My north-south shifts to east-west

Capacity for love, for love (for love)
Capacity for love (for love)
Capacity for love (love, for love)
Capacity for love (for love, for love)
Capacity for love (capacity for)
Capacity for love, love (oh yes)

Freefall

Watch out, here I come
Is there any way you can help me out?
I'm talking right here, watch me jump
I get a little closer when I've had enough
I'm falling

Something else
I'll tell you
Something else
I'd help you
Something more than that
But it's still not anything
So here we go again

Watch out, here I come
Is there any way you can help me out?
I'm talking right here, watch me jump
I get a little closer when I've had enough
I'm falling

Something else
I'll tell you
Something else
I'd help you
Something more than that
But it's still not anything

So here we go again

Watch out, here I come
Is there any way you can help me out?
I'm talking right here, watch me jump
I get a little closer when I've had enough
I'm falling

Something else
I'll tell you
Something else
I'd help you
Something more than that
But it's still not anything
So here we go again

Watch out, here I come
Is there any way you can help me out?
I'm talking right here, watch me jump
I get a little closer when I've had enough
I'm falling

Fossora

Her nerves spread like wings at mycelium speed
Into the atmosphere, there's spores everywhere

Fossora
Fossora
Fossora

For millions of years we've been ejecting our spores
Seedlings and sprouts are shot into the ground

Fossora
Fossora
Fossora

Her fossorial claw digs downwards, dissolves old pain
Dug down to rot, decomposes debris
Degrades sorrows, hair and hooves

Fossora
Fossora
Fossora

At last
We stayed in one place long enough (fossora)
To shoot down deep hyphae roots (fossora, fossora, fossora)
That penetrate concrete and plastic (fossora, fossora, fossora)
Even though the ground is burnt underneath monumental growth (fossora, fossora, fossora)
Fossora (fossora, fossora)

Her Mothers House

The space in your voice
Shows the scale of your compassion
The tone of your voice
Reveals the space you give up there

The more I love you
The stronger you become (stronger, become)
The less you need me (the less you need)

A dry voice comes from a stingy heart
But a moist voice comes from abundance

The more I love you (your voice)
The better you will survive
The more freedom I give you (more freedom I give you)

A mother's house
Has a room for each child
It's only describing the interior
Of her heart

A balloon painted with red clay
With lubrication will not crack
But will inflate evenly and float
Undo (undo), undo (undo), undo (undo), undo (undo)
The fortune of her heart
