Vertebrae by Vertebrae Lyrics

by Björk

Up on the toe
There is a view
Up on the toe
And the spine
Straight and erect

Hungry and curious
Up on the toe
Looking forward to

The air is thinner here

She came here to lose face
Got down on her knees
The beast is back on four legs
Set her clock to the moon
Raises her spine

Vertebrae by vertebrae
Up on the toe, looking

I have been filled with
Steam for months, for years
Same old cloud
Claustrophobic in me

Let it burst
Like old train sounds
Make them leave me, nature

Vertebrae by vertebrae
By vertebrae by vertebrae
By vertebrae

My arms ooze out of my shoulders
And the arms ooze out of my shoulders
I curl my tail inwards, inwards
Set my clock on the moon

Vertebrae by vertebrae

Please release
This pressure off me
Please release
This pressure off me

Please
This pressure off me
Release
Let off some steam
