Quicksand

Album: Vulnicura (2015)
  • Define her abyss, show it respect
    Then a celestial nest will grow above

    When I'm broken, I am whole
    And when I'm whole, I'm broken

    Our mother's philosophy
    It feels like quicksand
    And if she sinks
    I'm going down with it

    Locate her plateau from the space
    To form a cloak for her faithfulness
    When she's broken, she is whole
    And when she's whole, she's broken

    Our mother's philosophy
    It feels like quicksand
    And if she sinks
    I'm going down with it

    Up glow this darkness
    Up to the light
    We'll go we'll grab oxygen
    In boyous thin air

    When we're broken we are whole
    And when we're whole we're broken

    We are real siblings of the sun
    Let's stand into this beam
    Every time you give up
    You take away our future
    And my continuity and my torture
    And her doors Writer/s: Björk Gudmundsdottir, John Flynn
