Innocence

Paroles

I once had no fears
None at all
And then when
I had some

To my surprise
I grew to like both
Scared or brave
Without them

The thrill of fear
Thought i’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When i once was
Untouchable
Innocence roared
Still amazes

When i once was
Innocent
It’s still here
But in different places

Neurosis
Only
Attaches
Itself to
Fertile
Ground
Where it can flourish

The thrill of fear
Thought i’d never admit it
The thrill of fear
Now greatly enjoyed with courage

When i once was
Fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes

Untouchable
Innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

Fear is a powerful drug
Overcome it and
You think that you can do
Anything !

Should i
Save myself
For later
Or generously give ?

Fear of
Losing
Energy
Is draining

It locks up your chest
Shuts down the heart
Miserly
And stingy
Let’s open up : share !

When i once was
Fearless
Innocence roared
Still amazes

Untouchable
Innocence
It’s still here
But in different places

La presse à propos du titre

Timbaland pousse, et pousse encore, un beat qui va chercher dans un souffle humain synthétisé et dans les likembés torturés de Konono N°1 un matériau de propulsion pétaradant, un turbo rare. Une carlingue d’hyperespace qui survole dans un crachat de feu les émotions d’une Björk chantant les délices de la peur. Le titre le plus serré, crissant, de l’album. Vibrations music 04/2007


Another of the Timbaland co-writes is Innocence, which speaks of uninhibited youth and how it becomes more thrilling when you become older and more afraid. « I guess it’s a handshake with fear. When you’re 19, things don’t enter your mind. You’re untouchable. Later you’re like, ‘Whoa, what can I learn from experience ?’ »
source : Björk ... Iceland’s Cool Queen, The Sun, 05/05/2007


(...) Innocence we edited more, exaggerated all the stops and starts, tightened it up, and I wrote the middle eight into it.
Bjork and the beats behind Volta, metromix.com, 08/05/2007

Björk à propos du titre

« I’m not sure if ’Hope’ is about feminism. It is trying to understand how a pregnant suicide bomber feels, more than about he cause she is fighting for. I don’t take a stand politically. I write about emotion. » Björk Under The Radar Magazine, 2008

OLI press release

« ‘Innocence’ sees Björk at her passionate and inventive best, and comes with a thumping backbeat that continues where her last single ‘Earth Intruders’ left off. Bristling with intense energy this song sees Björk firmly on the march.

Taken from her new album ‘Volta’, ‘Innocence’ is written and produced by Björk, along with Timbaland and Danja. Meanwhile, the single sleeve also comes with another stunning Nick Knight shot of Björk in the statue especially designed by Bernhard Willhelm for the cover art of ‘Volta’.

Björk has also commissioned several brand new mixes of ‘Innocence’ by Simian Mobile Disco, Carsten Nicolai and Ghost Digital which. »
