  • Our love was my womb but our bond has broken
    My shield is gone, my protection is taken

    I am one wound, my pulsating body
    Suffering be

    My heart is enormous lake, black with potion
    I am blind, drowning in this ocean

    My soul torn apart, my spirit is broken
    Into the fabric of all he has woven

    You fear my limitless emotions
    I am bored of your apocalyptic obsessions

    Did I love you too much? Devotion bent me broken
    So I remained, destroyed the icon

    I did it for love, I honored my feelings
    You betrayed your own heart, corrupted that organ

    Family was always our sacred mutual mission
    Which you abandoned

    You have nothing to give, your heart is hollow
    I am drowned in sorrows

    No hope in sight, of ember
    Reckoning eternal pain and horrors

    I am a glowing shining rocket
    Returning home

    As I enter the atmosphere
    I burn off layer by layer Writer/s: Björk Gudmundsdottir
