Tabula Rasa

Paroles

We are all swollen
From hiding his affairs
Let’s put it all on the table
Let it all out
It is time
He mustn’t steal our light

clean plate
Tabula rasa for my children
clean plate
Not repeating the fuck-ups of the fathers

My deepest wish
is that you’re immersed in grace
and dignity
But you’ll have to deal with shit
soon enough
I hoped to give you the least amount of luggage
Got the right to make your own fresh mistakes
not repeat other’s failures

clean plate
Tabula rasa for my children
Let’s clean up
Break the chains of the fuck-ups of the fathers
it is time
For us women to rise
and not just take it lying down
it is time
The world is listening

Oh how i love you
Embarrassed to pass this mess over to you
But he led two lives
Thought ours was the only one

You are strong
You are strong
You are strong
You are strong
You are strong

À propos du titre

Björk manifeste à ses enfants et au monde qu’il est temps d’œuvrer pour la fin du patricarcat. « Il est l’heure pour les femmes de se lever, ne restons pas à terre. Il est l’heure, le monde écoute »

I did get the idea of a new place, of women supporting women, of rejecting old systems (in Tabula Rasa, she sings : “break the chains of the fuck-ups of our fathers”). The Observer
