All Neon Like
Björk Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 marvelous 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

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

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




Luminous
I'll heal you

Overall Meaning

The song All Neon Like by Björk is a beautifully crafted track that is full of powerful imagery and deep emotions. The first part of the song talks about the singer's willingness to come over and be with the person they are addressing, but only when that person's halo is all over them and when there is a shimmer around their skull. This suggests that the person needs to be fully immersed and ready for a deep connection before the singer can come over. The next few lines talk about the singer weaving a marvelous web made up of glow-in-the-dark threads that are all neon-like. The web is designed to cocoon the person and embrace them fully, allowing them to sleep in a foetus-style. The cocoon also serves to protect them from any external harm and fill them with a sense of comfort and safety.


In the next verse, the lyrics shift to the idea of the luminous beam that feeds and nourishes the person while also distorting their reality in a soft, gentle way. The person is encouraged not to get angry with themselves and to trust the singer to heal them with a razorblade. This seems to suggest that the person needs to trust the singer enough to let them cut open their wounds and heal them, even if it means enduring some pain. The song ends with the singer promising to heal the person with the luminous beam and the repeated refrain, "I'll heal you".
