Cosmogony Lyrics

by Björk

Heaven. Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me, make me wonder
And they say back then our universe was an empty sea
Until a silver fox and her cunning mate began to sing
A song that became the world we know

Heaven. Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me, make me wonder
And they say back then our universe was a coal black egg
Until the god inside burst out and from its shattered shell
He made what became the world we know

Heaven. Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me, make me wonder
And they say back then our universe was an endless land
Until our ancestors woke up and before they went back to sleep
They carved it up into the world we know

Heaven. Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me, make me wonder
And they say back then our universe wasn't even there
Until a sudden bang and then there was light, was sound, was matter
And it all became the world we know

Heaven. Heaven's bodies
Whirl around me and dance eternal
