Shake us out of the heavy deep sleep



Biophilia is the musical project and eighth full-length studio album by Icelandic singer Björk.[4][5] The album was released on 10 October 2011[6] over four years after her previous studio album, Volta (2007).[7] 

The album is “partly recorded” on an iPad and, as well as a standard CD release,[8] will be released in the form of a series of apps.[9]Biophilia will be the world’s “first app album” in collaboration with Apple.[10] Björk has described the project as a multimedia collection “encompassing music, apps, internet, installations, and live shows”.[11] Material from the album debuted during a concert series which was held in the summer of 2011 at the Manchester International Festival.[4]

“for me the project is a continuation of volta and whereas volta is more about anthropology, this is kind of without humans and both zooming out like the planets but also zooming in into the atoms and in that way aesthetically sympathising with sound and how sound moves and physics of sound and how notes in a room behave, how they bounce off walls and between objects and its kind of more similar to how planets and microscopic things work. ”   via

Crystalline

Underneath our feet
Crystals grow like plants
(Listen how they grow)
I’m blinded by the lights
(Listen how they grow)
In the core of the earth
(Listen how they glow)

Crystalline
Internal nebula
(Crystalline)
Rocks growing slow-mo
(Crystalline)
I conquer claustrophobia
(Crystalline)
And demand the lights

We mimic the openness
Of the ones we love
Daft till our generosity
Equalizes the flow
With our hearts
We chisel quartz
To reach love

Crystalline
Internal nebula
(Crystalline)
Rocks growing slow-mo
(Crystalline)
I conquer claustrophobia
(Crystalline)
And demand the lights

Octagon, polygon
Pipes up an organ
Sonic branches
Murmuring drone
Crystalizing galaxies
Spread out like my fingers

Crystalline
Internal nebula
(Crystalline)
Rocks growing slow-mo
(Crystalline)
I conquer claustrophobia
(Crystalline)
And demand the lights

It’s the sparkle you become
Conquer anxiety
Sparkle you become
Conquer anxiety
Sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety
It’s the sparkle you become
When you conquer anxiety

Moon

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

Now I’m all rejuvenated and rested
Now I’m all rejuvenated and rested

As if the healthiest pastime
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

Amazing woman, doing her service to the earth. Exemple for me and you!!

Submarine
When will it be time do 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!
Do it now!
