Skafa með skrúfu
Ég kem þegar hann
Ég fletti rólega bakvið lendarnar hvernig
Ég skafa öldurnar eins og sund fram á við
Leyfðu mér að fletta ofan af mér
Allt sem mig langar í er ad mýkjast öll að innan endalaust

Loksins finn ég árangur dettur af þessi farangur
Hrynur af lag eftir lag og ég storma upp út

Björk à propos du titre

We spent a few days singing together, and during that time he wrote a piano song that I sang over in gibberish Icelandic, you know, that hazy undefined scratch vocal you make when you’re coming up with a melody. […] But anyway, I was improvising over his piano track, coming up with a melody. After I went to bed, Antony stayed up all night, recording vocals and harmonising all my gibberish with these lush four part harmonies, effectively making a choir out of it. When I woke up in the morning, he told me he wanted to play me something. I was really honoured when I heard his work. And the track is great. It’s him singing in Icelandic, even if he has no idea what he’s singing about.
