I will wade out
Till my thighs are steeped in burning flowers
I will take the sun in my mouth and leap into the ripe air
Alive with closed eyes to dash against darkness

  • To all those people saying "sun" means " cock" in icelandic... BJÖRK DIDN´T EVEN WRITE THE LYRICS TO THIS SONG!!! They are taken directly out of a poem by E.E Cummings called "I will wade out", so even when it is, indeed, about female masturbation, there is no point at saying that Björk is taking a dick in her mouth here.
  • " not "is 'sun' Icelandic for cock?" I'm cackling." if it is, so it makes perfect sense with the last part of the poem, when she talks about masturbation.
  • every song from Vespertine is a bliss
  • not "is 'sun' Icelandic for cock?" I'm cackling.
  • This is a poem by EE Cummings ('' I will wade out '') , set to music
  • the music box...holy goddess sparkle
  • "is 'Sun' Icelandic for cock?" the most childish question in a while
  • Orgasmic
