Björk Album Lyrics: "Fossora" (2022)

Atopos Lyrics

(feat. Kasimyn)

 

Are these not just excuses to not connect?

Our differences are irrelevant

To 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 is a form of hiding

 

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 Lyrics

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 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, 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 Lyrics

Into sorrowful soil

(Sorrowful soil)

Our roots are dug

Into sorrowful soil

(Sorrowful soil)

Our roots are dug

Into sorrowful soil

Our roots are dug

Into sorrowful soil

(Sorrowful soil)

Our roots are dug

(Our roots are dug)

(Our roots 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)

(Woven with a mother's life force)

Self-sacrificial

(Woven with a mother's life force)

This is emotional textile

Self-sacrificial

Self-sacrificial

 

Nihilism happening

Cut through this nihilism happening

You did well

You, you did your best

Well, you did your best

(You, you did well)

You did-did, did-did-did, did well

You did, did, did well

You did, did, did, did, did, did well

You did well

Ancestress Lyrics

(feat. Sindri Eldon)

 

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

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

Hand-writing, 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, 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 odour of our final parting

Those have been

The perfumes of separation for centuries

The perfumes 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 Lyrics

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 Lyrics

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

 

Who am I that this is is 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 is is has happened to?

To transgress us beyond our tragedy

I took one for the team

I sacrificed myself to safe us

I rejected myself

Sacrificed myself

Felt sorry for myself

To transgress us beyond our tragedy

I sacrificed myself to

To transgress us beyond our tragedy

I sacrificed myself

 

Victimhood

I heed a call out of victimhood

Victimhood

Out of out of out of victimhood

Here I go now

Allow Lyrics

(feat. Emilie Nicolas)

 

The warm open wind on my skin

Primordial plant glistening with moisture

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, me 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

A translucent one

I'ma put it out and let it out 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

////////////////////////////////////

Fungal City Lyrics

(feat. serpentwithfeet)

 

Fungal cities subterranean

Curve 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

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

Capacity for love (Is enormous)

 

His vitality repolarises me

My north/south shifts to east/west

 

Capacity for love

For love

Capacity for love

Capacity for love

Capacity for love

Capacity for love

Capacity for love

Freefall Lyrics

Freefall

I let myself freefall

Into your arms

Into the shape of the love we created

Our emotional hammock

Safe inside the fabric of this love-woven membrane

 

Everytime we kiss

Share songs and films

Hike mountains and beaches

Our joined presence gains form

Our affections captured in a structure

Visceral sculpting of our love into space

 

If we cling to what we used to be it will burn our soul

We'll get hurt

Unless there is absolute trust

Then we will become one

Become one

 

Our solar systems coalesced

Softly surrendered into itself formed a nebulous cloud

A gentle meeting of gas and dust

We amalgamate

Arctic persian compassionate

Illuminate, illuminate, illuminate, illuminate, illuminate

Fossora Lyrics

Fossora

Her nerves spread like wings at mycelium speed

Into the atmosphere spores everywhere

 

Fossora

Fossora

Fossora

 

For millions of years we've been ejecting our spors 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 decrades sorrows, hair and hooves

 

Fossora

Fossora

Fossora

 

At last

We stayed in one place long enough to shoot down deep hyphae roots that penetrate concrete and plastic (fossora...)

Even though the ground is burnt underneath monumental growth (fossora...)

Her Mother's House Lyrics

(feat. ísadóra bjarkardóttir barney)

 

The space in your voice

Shows the scale of your compassion

The tone of your voice

Reveals the space you give others

 

The more I love you (The more you love me)

The stronger you become (The stronger I become)

The less you need me (And the less I need you)

 

A dry voice

Comes from a stingy heart

But a moist voice

Comes from abundance

 

The more I love you (The more you love me)

The better you will survive (The better I will survive)

The more freedom I give you (The more freedom you give me)

 

When a mother's house (A mother's house)

Has a room for each child (Each child)

It's only describing (Describing)

The interior of her heart (Interior of her heart)

 

A ballon painted with red clay

With lubrication will not crack

But will inflate

Then float high

 

Undo, undo, undo, undo (The fortune of)

Undo, undo (Of her heart)

Undo
