Body Memory
Björk Lyrics

First snow of Winter
I'm walking hills and valleys
Adore this mystical fog!
This fucking mist!
These cliffs are just showing off

Then the body memory kicks in
I mime my whole mountains
The moss that I'm made of
I redeem myself

I've been wrestling my fate
Do I accept this ending?
Will I accept my death?
Or struggle claustrophobic?
Fought like a wolverine
With my destiny
Refuse to accept what was meant to be

Then the body memory kicks in, and I trust the unknown
Unfathomable imagination
Surrender to future

Oh, how to capture all this love
And find a pathway for it
Like threading an ocean through a needle
Ribbon through a keyhole
Can't fathom the grasp
I can't grasp the fathom

Then the body memory kicks in
My limbs and tongue take over
Like the ancestors before me
Show me the flow

My sexual DNA
X-rays of my Kama Sutras
Summons different bodies
Compares spines and buttocks
And back of necks

Then my body memory kicks in
It simply takes over
I redeem my body

I wasn't born urban
Toxic doesn't agree with me
A love lured me here
Into a stagnant state
My myths, my customs, ridiculed
Vacuum-packed molecules

Then my body memory kicks in
On this Brooklyn dance floor
Sweating with these rhythms
Rotate this matrix

I'm trapped in legal harness
Kafka-esque, farce like patriarchy
Avoid it to confront it

Then the body memory kicks in
My warrior awakens
My turn to defend
Urban didn't tame me

Then my body memory kicks in
Bosoms and embraces
Oral, anal entrances
Enjoy the satisfaction
If the other is growing

"this mystical fog, this fucking mist" is the greatest lyric of all time

Itachi Uchiha

I thought I heard wrong lol

Daniel Rodriguez

I'm getting biophilia meets medulla vibes from this song


Daniel Rodriguez with vulni vulnerable

Electric Baran

It feels almost like national geographic meets middle ages gallic documentary meets fairies and God.

ShiP wReCk

This song is genius. It's like multiple songs blended into one. So many layers. So complex. I love it.


Much like the history of our species.

Brian Pergande

I imagine a national geographic like video for this. The animal sounds are very nice.

Nader Abed

This is really on another level... I think even Bach and Stockhausen would be jealous.

Ryan Voorhies

great comment! very much a stockhausen kind of appeal to this.. how bleak it is. i think its a brilliant composition.
