  • Like a virus needs a body
    As soft tissue feeds on blood
    Some day I'll find you, the urge is here

    Like a mushroom on a tree trunk
    As the protein transmutates
    I knock on your skin, and I am in

    The perfect match, you and me
    I adapt, contagious
    You open up, say welcome

    Like a flame that seeks explosives
    As gunpowder needs a war
    I feast inside you, my host is you

    The perfect match, you and I
    You fail to resist
    My crystalline charm

    Like a virus, patient hunter
    I'm waiting for you, I'm starving for you

    My sweet adversary
    My sweet adversary
    My sweet adversary Writer/s: Bj�rk Gudmundsdottir, Sigurjon Sigurdsson
